Stayed here for 4 nights in early March. We absolutely loved it, and would definitely return. Whole place is really nicely decorated, from the reception which is small but very welcoming, to the photos on the walls in the corridors, to the rooms themselves which have a few final touches that give them much more character than you'd expect from...

It is so noisy, the cleaning lady starts about 5 in the morning. The rooms are about 10 m2. But clean though. I read it should be family run but it lacks every kind of personality. It looks more like a russian run investment. There was no warm water as it had broken down the night before. This place is... More

We spent 3 nights in Hostal Matheu and what we can say it's that it was fantastic. Very clean rooms, great staff and perfect location. A few steps from Puerta del Sol, you have many bars and restaurants where to spend a delicious typical culinary experience! I would definitely recommend this property!

Good location and personal. Very clear room, but small. Best for this price in the center. Breakfast: orange juice, big croissant, coffee or tea. Noisy in the night, cause it's center of Madrid, not hotel.

After reading some reviews i have to agree with most of them. we recently stayed at this hostel with 2 other couples and we found a great deal for around 45 euros per room for two people including breakfast and lunch which was in a bar/restaurant right next door (great deal). We were actually supposed to stay in their sister... More

This is a great location in Madrid right near the main square in Sol. The rooms are fairly modern, the main issue being noise from adjacent rooms, staff and people in the corridors. We could hear noise from staff and other guests at all times of the night. But you get what you pay for, this was a cheap, clean... More

The Tineo Hotel currently operating under the name Hostal Mattheu. For the last minute price we found on their website (59.50 eur/two nights/two persons in March) it was totally perfect for us! It's location is unbeatable, a few steps from the Puerta del Sol, on the first floor of a building. We met two employees of the hostel: one of... More

This place is so noisy that I can't imagine how it place manages to stay in business as a hotel. And no, I am not talking about normal city noises--think front row at a rock concert. The hotel is located on the first floor above a nightclub that plays live music until 6 am every night of the week. The... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
