Hostal La Zona is a delightful little property in Central Madrid, just steps away from the "official" gay & lesbian neighborhood of Chueca -- although you'll find plenty of gay nightlife around the La Zona too. The rooms are spartan but sufficient, especially for the prices. Breakfast is nice every morning, and they make quite possibly the strongest cup of... More

I enjoyed my six day stay at Hostal la Zona. This was my second stay there. It is greatly improved since my first visit 7 years ago. Great central location. A bargain that is hard to beat. Very clean. A friendly, helpful staff. Relaxed atmosphere. No disadvantages.

Everything was great just a noisy toilet pump which comes on and off so disturbs your sleep. Great location, includes breakfast cereal toast cake etc coffee tea juice. Ideal for the gay traveller relatively quiet a little noise from street on the whole very good value

Really happy with my stay here. Great room and excellent location. I would definitely return again when in Madrid. I was greeted by Lio and he was very professional and gave me a lot of useful information for my stay in Madrid!

The room has its own bathroom and toilet. It is clean. The only problem was that it was quite small but this is something that you should expect. You have free Wi-Fi which was important for us. The location is amazing the metro is just 3-5 minutes walking distance away and also you are near the Chueca area that is... More

This was my second visit to Hostal La Zona and it didn't disappoint. The location is perfect, just off Gran Via. You are within easy walking distance to Metro Stations, shops, bars, cafes ect. Retiro Park is approx. 15min walk away but a great place to spend a few hours especially at the weekend. It can suffer from some street... More

I stayed at Hostal la Zona for the first time several years ago and its location, just a stone's throw from Gran Via and the Puerta del Sol, is ideal for just about anything you want to do in Madrid. On my recent visit I discovered again how being jammed in between Chueca and Malasaña "barrio de las Maravillas" is... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
