“Really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I've stayed for 4 days in a single room, with AC, private bathroom, towels, and everything.
The staff was really helpful, Wifi worked really well in my room, the metro station Gran Via is really close to the building. The continental breakfast costed 4,50E, but I did not try it ...
The room had enough space for everything, with dresser, locker and a huge bed.
If you want a place to hang out and meet people, maybe it is not the best choice. I did not see any other guest during my stay.
I only do not give 5 stars because they do not have any late check out policy, reason why I had to pay an extra day, because my flight back home only departed in the middle of the night.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed here and I would not consider choosing anywhere else in Madrid. The location is unbeatable - Madrid is very compact and this spot on Gran Via is beautiful and right in the middle of everything, being only seconds from Gran Via Metro. The rooms are light, airy, brightly decorated and maintained to a very good standard. The bathrooms are a little small and in some rooms arranged a tad bizzarely, but you have to remember it is an old and very tastefully restored building adapted to house a number of hotels. Cleanliness is taken very seriously by the cheerful maids, and everyone from the owner to the night-porter is friendly, helpful and makes you feel welcome. The hotel is not 'basic' as described in other reviews and everything you could possibly want is right on your doorstep 24/7. If you prefer warm, friendly, cosy and being made to feel like you're staying with friends to the cold, clinical hotel chains - this place is for you. I will definately be back!

Room Tip: For great views ask for a room on Gran Via, for a silent, peacful night ask for a room on teh side s...

This is a very basic hotel in a great location for a reasonable price. The room provides the bare minimum, but with a comfortable bed and is very clean compared to most hotels of the same price level in Spain. The hotel is family run and not advertised well, so it seems to be rarely booked by US patrons - but its friendly staff and great location should make it a good choice for anyone interested in a good deal. The area is very busy, but very central, with public transport just two blocks away. Unfortunately some seedy areas are also close by, and petty crime is rampant throughout this particular neighborhood. However, there is security in the multilevel building, which houses many other small hotels and bed and breakfasts (Felipe V is on an upper floor it shares with a few other hotels). You should select this hotel if you want a simple clean room to sleep in and not much else. If you seek any amenities, it may prove too basic for you. We were OK with it, although I might opt for a bit more in a future stay in Madrid. Its perfect for students and those on a limited budget.

I participated in the Pueblo Ingles program and spent 2 nights, 1 week apart, in 2 different rooms. The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the easy-to-use Metro, Gran Via station.

The beds were not fancy, instead of 2 pillows there was 1 body pillow, which I didn't care for. They beds weren't particularly comfortable, either.

The bathrooms could have been cleaner as there were some mysterious black hairs in the corners on the floor. The bathroom in room 26 was comically small. The door could not open all the way because of the toilet.

Location was the most important factor to me so for that this hotel gets 5 stars.

Despite being hard to find (only a sign in the doorway with about 12 other hostels indicates Hostel Felipe's location), I don't have a single bad thing to say about the hostel. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The hostel was my home away from home as I stayed there three separate times during my trip to Spain, Portugal and Morocco, each time I returned I was greeted by name and a big smile. Such a nice change from impersonal hotel chains. The rooms were clean, but sparse. I suggest asking for a room overlooking Calle de la Reina instead of Grand Via. Grand Via is quite loud at night and only one window separates you from the noise. the back is much quieter and you have a small enclosed balcony with two sets of windows that really shut out any noise.

This place is really good for backpackers with a loose budget and also for people that are not going to be all the time in their rooms.

The location is unbeatable, you are in the center of the city, so you can walk everywhere.

The staff is friendly and the rooms are spacious and clean.

This place was recommended by my cousin and we had a great stay! The hotel is located on the Gran Via, one of the major arteries of Madrid. It is within walking distance to great sites, theaters, and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and very helpful.

It is economical, so don't expect a super hotel. It is clean and the rooms have a very good size. The bathrooms are also very clean and spacious. If you're just looking for a place to rest at night, or even to take a nap during the day (because it is so easy to get to), then this place is perfect!

It is very easy to get to. Just get off the Gran Via metro stop and if you come out on the same side as the McDonald's walk to the right. When you get to No. 15, go up to the 4th floor. You'll be greeted with kindness and courtesy.
