“Good loacation and price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2005

Stayed in a double with a bathroom for 44 euros a night on a Thurs and Fri night. Didn't notice any noise at all. Calle Principle is a very busy street and the location is great, right next to Plaza Santa Ana, which has lots of bars and restaurants. The bathroom was small and I had some problems getting the shower to work. The furnishings are worn and old but for the price... Overall the room was clean and if you want a very cheap room this is not bad.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2005

I believe sleeping in the metro would have been quieter. Granted, we stayed on a Saturday night, and perhaps a weeknight is less crowded, but people were coming in until 6 or 7 a.m. with all the accompanying hallway and other noise (there are communal bathrooms in the hallways). When we checked out at 8:30, it appeared some people had spent the night sleeping in the lobby. The average age of the guests appeared to be 21. This is the place to stay if you want to stay out all night and party; if you plan on sleeping more than a few hours, forget it.

Basic rooms, decoration could be refreshed, the first room we had was smelly and awful, but we asked for a change and they kindly changed the room. The second one was good, with TV, air cond, and bathroom. A good value, near everything (but what hotel in Madrid isn't?). There is so much hotel in this town!

NB: the bathroom is rather small, so, you may have to sit in an unorthodox position to do your business!

I stayed here in mid-march 2004 and had a great time. I had a single with shared bathrooms, the bathroom was clean as was the room. There were alot of stairs up to my floor, but the price was right and the location was excellent. I would definately stay here again.

Great staff. We stayed in a double bedroom with a private bathroom and air conditionining. Calle Principe has a lot of bars/clubs/restaurants.
It's a great location.
