The staff were so helpful and welcoming, the breakfast was decent and the experience as a whole was value for money. We chose this hotel because of its location next to gran via metro station and avenue also to Puerta del sol. The room was fair, the bathroom was so tiny you couldn't sit on the toilet seat or take... More

La Zona is in an excellent location for gays, on the border between Chueca and Malasana. The street is very busy and quite noisy at night, but that wasn't a big problem for us. And don't worry about tourist guides warning you about prostitutes, they are very few and will not disturb you. Upon arrival we were greeted very friendly... More

This was my first visit to Madrid and my first time staying in a Hostal, which is a similar idea to a Bed and Breakfast. La Zona is located just off Gran Via and is close to everything, shopping, sightseeing and Retiro Park is about a 15min walk away. On arrival I was greeted by one of the co-owners, given... More

If you are planning a trip to Madrid and you want a small hotel that is primarily for the gay traveller than you should stay at the Hostal La Zona. It is a great hotel in a very good location, close to all the bars and night life that Chueca has to offer. The hotel is situated on two floors... More

Lets start out by saying.. this is not a Marriott. If you are expecting hotel amenities and comforts, do not book here. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay on a budget, this is your place. I was welcomed by a great employee who talked to me about Madrid, and welcomed me into the hotel 5.5 hours... More

I decided in a short notice to spend a weekend in Madrid. Looking for gay friendly cheap accommodation, I found this hostal thank to the esmadrid web site. The location is very centralized. Nice if you want to walk around, and go out at night. You're in the gay neighborhood. However, it is quite noisy at night, therefore, wearing ear... More

Great location in Chueca - everything within walking distance - Prado Pl Mayor, Royal Palace. Clean, pleasant room. Good reading and shaving lights, good breakfast. Bathroom small but fine. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Can't beat this in central Madrid.

The Hostal La Zona is a nice hostel which is located most centrally in Madrid and very close to the spots of Chueca. It has a very good price-value ratio and can be recommended. As it is a hostel it can not be compared to a hotel, but among the many hostels around in Madrid it is a really good... More

Simple hotel located in the heart of Madrid. Gran Via subway station is just a few steps away - 5 min walk from Puerta del Sol and 10 min from Plaza Mayor. Clean room without any charm but confortable. Basic furniture. Simple breakfast with food wrapped in plastic. Not really tasty. Served until noon. Free wifi. Street can be noisy... More

We spent three nights at Hostal La Zona. Esteban made us feel very welcomed and gave us a lot of direction on what to see in Madrid. Upon arrival, we first thought our room would be too small but it really had all we needed. It was nice having a balcony overlooking the street. The location is great, a very... More
