I made a paid reservation and agreed that it could not be canceled or refunded; never-the-less, the Hotel cancelled it without explanation. Looks like there's a double standard here, so plan accordingly.

Hostal Luz has few redeeming qualities: its locale, free room wi-fi (pronounced 'wee-fee') and its gregarious, hypomanic, lady owner who speaks no English (and I a smidgen of Spanish) who somehow communicates her thoughts not too badly. That's the good news. The bad news? The usual suspects: bathroom horrors like toothpaste in sachets, fourth world toilet paper, poor-draining water in... More

Don't let the age of the building, the appearance of entry or size of the elevator make you think less of it! The hostal is renovated, with beautiful ceramic and mosaic tiles and a welcoming ambience. The room was very nice, with great light and ventilation from two windows, a very comfortable bed, a small refrigerator, enough room for our... More

This hotel is extremely well located, just 2 minutes away from the Calle Mayor, Plaza Mayor and the San Miguel Market. It is very clean, very well decorated and quite comfortable. My room was ensuite and it had air conditioning, which was very convenient because it was very hot in Madrid during my stay. There is free wifi in the... More

I urgently needed to see a Doctor, however, the owner refused to let a Doctor into the hostal. This is disgraceful. How could they not allow this, I had to book another hotel just to see the Doctor. I dont know what one would do in an emergency. I think my health is more important than 38 euros for the... More

Only one mitunte walk from central Metro Opera Station, this hostel has easy access from both Airport (only two changes by metro) and Train station (straight from Atocha, walk 7-8 min from metro Sol station). Hostel is in centre of Marid's different "Barrios (area/quarter)", such as Latina, Centro, Huertas, Chueca, Malasana etc...great choice in neighbor, restaurants, bars, shops, and Madrid's... More

Had a lovely time in Madrid with my sister and the hostel was perfectly fine for our needs. The rooms are clean, albeit possibly need a bit of tlc (a few small scratches/stains on walls, dodgy looking power sockets with cracked covers etc). There were fresh towels and cleaning every day, and the sheets looked and smelled very clean. The... More

Location at Puerta del Sol in Madrid is a plus. The place is absolutely clean. The room was absolutely adequate with a window opening to a very quiet area in the back of the building. The fan/AC made the room environment cool when needed. The Hostal was booked during the six days we spent there, and yet it was very... More

This is a B&B located in the old side of Madrid in a beautiful building only 5 minutes away from the famous Chocolatería San Ginés and near the metro Opera. It is close to shops and nice restaurants and has access to other parts of town. The Prado Museum is only 20 minutes walk away. The service and facilities are... More

How to get there Go to Opera Metro station and walk to the McDonalds then walk a further block and to the right there is the street. In April 2014, there is scaffolding all over the building and it is not easy to see. It was also difficult to find the entrance buzzer for the hotel. Location This is a... More
