Comfy little place in a somewhat shabby area. The road the hotel is located on is busy/noisy, but my room had a window into the backyard, so no complains. Place is really clean and well maintained. Really helpful owner with perfect English.

Ideally situated within the oldest part of the city, with Museums and nightlife in short walking distance. I had a room to a small and not exactly sunny, but quiet courtyard. Did not book private bathroom, but got one for lack of other rooms - small, but clean and reasonably modern. Even had a built-in kitchen (if you're interested, Nr.... More

It wasn't too difficult to find, if you rely on the address (no big signs). It's located on the second floor of an old building. Personally, I don't mind the uneven wooden steps, small elevator & dark interior; it's an exciting adventure! I met the receptionist and I think she was great; straight to the point yet understanding. She spoke... More

I was given a room without any windows. The bathroom was so small and cramped there was nowhere to leave your clothes other than to get wet on the floor. The place demands payment up front, charges if you want to leave your luggage, and reception just watched TV soaps all day. Never again.

We stayed here only one night after missing our train to Barcelona. We walked right in and were offered a room with two double beds and a bathroom in suite for only €42. When we saw the room, we were thrilled! Our own bathroom, a nice window with a clothes line, and a very very clean room. The staff was... More

I spent a weekend at La Vera, while visiting Madrid as a tourist. La Vera became my choice of accomodation, because of its very reasonable pricing. The location was excellent, with walking distance both to a major area of restaurants and bars aswell as good art museums. Even though I did not expect much after having paid 30 euros per... More

Spent one night at the beginning of September 2011. Arrived at 9 PM, after a long train trip. The road where the hostel is located is definitely not the safest in the city, although it's very close to the city centre, with all the bars and restaurants, the closest metro stop (anton martin) is actually a little square crowded with...

I've stayed at this hostal various times and keep going back as I really liked it. It's clean, tidy. The rooms are a little on the small side, but that depends if you have your bathroom in there or you use the common one. I would recommend anyone stay here. The location is perfect. It's like a 5 min walk... More

Staying in Lavapies

Neighborhood Profile
Lavapies
Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighborhood.
