“Clean and comfortable, with a perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We stayed at the Hostal Sonsoles in May 2012, just for one night - unfortunately, we had no time to spend a few more days in beautiful Madrid!

The place was in a great location, easy to find, near the metro stop at Gran Via (and also near Tribunal metro stop). The place was very clean, the room were spacious, the bathrooms spotless. We were very pleasantly surprised! The staff didn't speak much English, but that wasn't a big problem - we managed to communicate everything we needed.

I recommend this place definately, you will find it a perfect spot from where to begin your exploring - it is near Gran Via, Sol, etc. and also near Malasana for those who like to go out at night.

We didn't expect too much but it was def a surprise. The location was pretty good. Subway station are close and the hostel is directly on a crowded shopping street. The cleaning service was excellent. The rooms looked cleaner than some of the Hotels I went to. The only disadvantage: the service personal and the receptionist don't speak any english or other foreign language. However, it was great staying here. Highly recommended for a rather low budget trip to Madrid.

We had a very clean, comfortable double and twin room with fresh towels every day. Staff were very friendly. This hotel is in an idle location, a few minutes away from the Gran Via metro station and there are great bars, restaurants and shops around it. We would definitely stay here again.

Me and my girlfriend stayed 3 nights at Sonsoles and although we had booked a double room, we were provided with a twin room. Not a big deal, so we decided not to complain or request a new room.
The room was spacious enough for two people feel comfortable. However, we would appreciate a little more space in the bathroom (smaller than the one in the photos).
The great thing about Sonsoles is its location: only one minute away from the Gran Via station, and at a walking distance from lots of bars, cafes and Puerta del Sol. It is located on a pedestrian commercial street, that although its lack of movement at late hours, does not produce a insecure feeling at all.
A fair hostal for Madrid, considering the relation price x quality.

The hotel is in great location, just 2/3 minutes walk from Gran Via metro station. We arrived at 08:00 in morning and the check in is at 12:00. We left our luggage at the hotel and headed for Toledo. We checked in the evening, the receptionist already finalised a room and left our luggage in the room. I was so impressed. The room has not kettle for making tea or coffee, but they have vending machine to buy tea/coffee. The room was very clean, it toilet and shower room was very clean. There was a deposit box in the room where you can keep your valuables. We checked out in the next morning and left our luggage in the hotel that we collected in the afternoon. The good thing is that you will find plenty of restaurants and bar around this place as it is in the heart of Madrid. I was very happy to stay in this hotel.
