This ultra-budget guesthouse is on the third floor of a building located on a side street about halfway between Puerta del Sol and the Prado. My wife and I stayed there for three nights in September. Our room was quite small, as expected, but spotlessly clean and freshly painted. It came with a small private bathroom with a shower. Air conditioning was a very welcome amenity, and worked perfectly. The only problem was the Wi-Fi signal, which was so weak in our room that only one of our two devices was able to connect. There was some street noise out back in the evenings, but the AC allows you to close the window and shut it out.
The location is wonderful, a 10 minute walk from the Prado (east) and Plaza del Sol (west). It was a joy to walk home from dinner at one of the many restaurants around nearby Plaza Santa Ana. The Anton Martin metro stop is also about a 5 minute walk, and you can get anywhere from there.
You can get to the hotel from the airport w/o taking a cab. Take the Aeropuerto Express bus to the Cibeles station and walk from there - about 15 minutes. The Atocha train station is also about a 15 minute walk.
The hosts speak very little English, but are very anxious to be helpful and accommodating. Carry your pocket dictionary along!
