Great location, friendly staff, excellent value for money. Highly recommended. Close to all the sights and surrounded by restaurants/bars - but still pretty quiet and felt safe. My wife and I both loved it.

I'm 20 and came here for a week with my boyfriend, we loved the hostel; the owners were very helpful and always said hi, they only spoke Spanish but it was nice to try and speak the language and they were very patient. We were able to leave our bags in the hostel before our room was ready and also... More

The hotel is in central position, few minutes walking from Sol, Plaza Mayor or Plaza Sant Ana. It's on firs floor with elevator and secure door at the entrance. Hotel is proper, personnel is kind. There is no breakfast despite its availability is marked in the site (it used to be available). Room was quite too small, specially the bathroom!... More

Very small room, but especially tiny bathroom. Clean and quiet (even if the place is located in a street with a lot of restaurants and clubs). Good internet connection, but bad TV connection. Close to Puerta del Sol. No breakfast included, but a lot of convenient bars. Perfect for young people with a low budget.

If you're going budget (well, you must be if you've picked this place) then La Banezana can't fail to impress. The lady who runs it is fantastic, always there to help you out with directions, things to do, advice and tips for travellers... The room itself is more akin to a mini cheap hotel. Beds are made and rooms cleaned... More

I would definitely recommend it for a budget stay in Madrid. It is very central: if you stay there, you don't need to worry about public transport. There is no breakfast, but there are some really cheap and good quality places, literally round the corner. The owner is a very friendly and efficient lady, and she keeps the hostal very... More

This place is okay. For the price, you are getting a well-located place with a private bathroom. That part is great and most things about the hotel fall into the "you get what you pay for" category. However, there was no internet in my room. This was the biggest detractor!! I could handle that owners live in the back and... More

This was our second visit to Hostal La Banezana. So it must have been good to warrant a return trip! It is central, clean, budget priced, friendly proprietors.... The rooms are quite small, but have clean bathrooms, plenty of towels are provided and the bedding is fresh. We asked for a room overlooking the street both times, which can be... More

I booked my room the previous day thru Bookassist dot com - and when I got there the lady who seems to own/run the place didn't have any reservation from me in her handwritten reservations book. She called her friend in a nearby hostel who put me up, so I had a decent night's sleep in another place (which was... 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.
