I took the metro from the airport to the city. The Gran Via metro station was just steps from the hotel entrance. There are 3 hotels in the same building ...so it could be a little confusing. The entrance looked like entrance to a factory. The elevators were being worked on with only one working and it was small. The... More

The lift didn't work and I had to drag my luggage via stairs (very filthy) all the way up to the 8th floor to see the Receptionist. I was hoping for some apologies but the guy gave me a very frosty reception.He did not speak any English either. Make sure you are in peak physical condition of you plan to... More

Expected a run down hostal but turned out to be very different to what we thought. Right next to the metro line so its a really convenient location with loads of different restraunts/cafes and retail shops all around. Nice place, very clean and friendly staff. Good value for money!!

Stayed there for 3 night weekend break start of December. The location is excellent. It is right beside Gran Via metro station which is accessible from the airport (make 2 line changes) The hotel itself is on the 8th floor. The lifts are small but can fit suitcases and 2 people. Upon arrival I was greeted by friendly staff. The... More

Stayed for 3 nights with my family, the room is actually smaller than what you see from photo, however it is right on top of metro and close to most of the sights in Madrid, so you will be busy outside, at night it is a bit noisy but I deal with it, nothing fancy here but clean and comfortable.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Rooms are very basic but clean, the view from our window was not much but what more do you expect!!. We got a really good deal due to booking through groupon, however without groupon voucher i have noticed it is also fairly priced. This hotel is literally next door to the huge gran via Mc... More

My wife and I traveled to Madrid on June 10, 2014 and stayed at this hotel. The building is typical with the architecture around, the Hostal is in 8th floor and the elevators are enough for 2 people with limited luggage. The front desk area was clean and the attendant was very helpful. The room was big enough but the... More

Very centrally located. Close to shopping and the metro. It is a busy area so can be noisy at night. My suggestion is drink lots so you just pass out. The room is clean and we had an amazing view from the 8th floor. The hop on and hop off tour bus stops close by, good for sightseeing on a... More

We just stayed at Hostal Luis XV for 4 nights and had a great experience. The staff were friendly in accommodating us in the same double room for our 4 night stay (I booked the first 2 nights as a single at a much lower rate, and my wife joined for the 2nd 2 nights). The view is absolutely fantastic... More

After much trouble booking with hotels.com, the hostal charged us for 2 nights even though we only stayed one. So, as far as service goes, it was a bit disappointing because the credit card charge was made by the hotel yet they claim they couldn't (i.e., wouldn't) issue a credit for the first night that had to be cancelled. We... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
