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

Just back from a two night stay at Hostal La Zona and both me and my friend were very impressed. This is not luxury accommodation but it is very central, large rooms, continental breakfast included and Esteban, the owner/host is a lovely helpful man. It is almost like you are staying with friends. Without question we got what we paid... More

We stayed at the Hotal between October 4th to 8th, 2012. Great location and the nice staff made our stay wonderful. The staff gave us good tips regarding our stay in Madrid (and lent us AC adapter when we needed it ...) we would be happy to recommend our friends and probably come again in the future.

Very good location right downtown. One of the staff members (can't remember his name but he was the oldest one there) was AWESOME. He even booked our reservations to the Alhambra and Cordoba. If you are going to book here make sure they are done with their building renos, they where fixing the elevator shaft or something... Be aware it's... More
