This is a great place to stay when you eventually find it, it is located on a busy road and we initially walked past it as the entrance is tucked away between two shops. It is in a building that has several hostals within it and is located on the 3rd floor. The rooms were small but given the price... More

It was a very nice place, once you found it, and the staff were very nice... once you found them. Some of the staff didn't speak English (which is 100% understandable) so it was difficult at times to communicate, but the man who was usually at the desk was very kind and he went out of his way to be...

Great value Hostal right in the city centre. We had asked for a quiet room, and that was what we got. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, lots of hot water and comfortable.

Hostal Carrera is a really good place to stay if you are thinking of going to Madrid. Its location is excellent for all the main sites in the older part of the city as they are all within easy and pleasant walking distance. Our room was of good size, quiet and impeccably clean. The staff were polite and considerate and... More

This is a great place to put your suitcase down and relax. The rooms are quite and could not be better. We were so glad to see a lift to get to the upper floor after having to pull our suitcases up several floors of stairs at other hostals.. This is like a medium priced hotel in the U.S., if... More

This hostel had a great location, we walked everywhere from here. The staff was very friendly, the owner tried his best to get me to use the limited Spanish I knew and his wife was eager to use her English with us. Rooms were clean and fairly good sized, we had a double twin room. Traffic can be loud at... More

This place is managed by a wonderful couple. It is clean, nice, comfortable and accesible. Location is great. Walk everywhere, good and non-expensive places to eat in the area. Close to important places and train stations. I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed in the Hostal Carrera with my family, booking a triple room directly with the hotel. This is a great hotel, located in the very city center of Madrid, ES. It's a 5 mins walk from Plaza del Sol, where there is the Subway station and you can find all the shops-pubs-restaurants you'll need. Not only it's a 12... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
