The major plus side of this little hotel is that it is smack bang in the middle of the city. Pretty much 5 mins walk from the Puerta del Sol metro. It is surrounded by tons of activity day and night. Street performers are there day and night by the metro, whilst there are streets of restaurants within minutes walking.... More

I'm not a light sleeper and the late night party-ers did not bother me too much, but I could NOT sleep through the trash can band that seemed to go on for hours and woke me up way too early Wednesday morning. On the plus side, great central location neighboring a Dunkin Donuts and Museo Del Jamon. As a tourist,... More

Clean and nice place, friendly staff. Tended to be a little noisy on Friday nights as it is a minute walk from Puerta-del-Sol and that' s a noisy place. There is a locker in every room, costs one euro to open\close it. I visited in february and the room was chilly, although an extra blanket is provided.

Located on the second floor of an old building within 5 minutes walking of Sol station (for both Metro and RENFE light rail) and about 25 minutes of Atocha railway station. There is a large supermarket in El Cortes Ingles off Puerta del Sol within 5 minutes walking. All around are fast-food restaurants and more up-market eating establishments. Because it... More

Excellent choice if you are seeking value close to all the main attractions and easy to get to from airport or train station. Simple, but clean and good size room. 24 hr access. Museo de Jambon next door great for breakfast

I stayed at hostal Esmeralda for one night on a Saturday and will definitely return if I'm ever in Madrid ! It it one small street away from Plaza del Sol which is the center of Madrid, so excellent location. It has Museo del Jamon right next to it which had very big and tasty sandwiches for just 1-2 euros.... More

In the thick of things - on second floor (yeah slightly small, old elevator but I've been in worse and beats carrying bag up the stairs). Some slight language issues at check in but all good, room was very clean although small. Had tv and air-con (phew!). Great value overall! (especially considering it cost nearly as much per night to... More

Located in the heart of Madrid just where the action goes on 24/4. The entrance is scary as it also is the elevator but once you walk into it the place is impecable, clean and friendly staff. A very good place for the money. No complains and will return on my next stay in Madrid. If you drive a car... More
