I've never stayed in a hostal before so it took a little getting used to. The single rooms that myself and my son had are small and very basic, and the bathrooms are also very small, but they are very clean and serviced daily. I am really pleased with the location, it is so close to everything we have been... More

We stayed 2 weekend nights in this hostal. The location is super convenient and beautiful. Easy to reach from sol metro station and a few steps away from the beautiful plaza mayor. Lots of restaurants and bars at walking distance, but set away from the noisy streets. The room was small, but had all necessary comforts and was extremely clean... More

Rooms aren't large, and I understand the difference between a "Hotel" and a "Hostal" has to do with amenities--so no breakfast and minimal freebies in the room. Elevator! It's a great value since our room was spotless and we had a little balcony from which we could watch the comings and goings on the street below and on Plaza Santa... More

This is a great location for the visitor to Madrid. 100 yards frin Plaza del Sol, and 50 yards from Plaza Mayor. After 5 days here, we had walked to most of the more interesting things to do in Madrid. Museums, plaza's and even the palace, the largest palace in Europe (2600 rooms) are all within a 15 minute walk.... More

I definitely recommend this place if you are on a budget and want a good, simple room with really great hosts. It is in an excellent location if you want to be in the tourist center of Madrid, right between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hostal is inexpensive, up to date, and spotless. The rooms have double pane... More

A friendly, cosy place in a family-run hotel, nice people, very careful, turning on the heat on cold rainy nights, I felt at home, poor internet but improving by the middle of my stay, sometimes few shampoo, or soap provided, I would recommend Hostel Santa Cruz for its view and location mostly,and for its tidiness, quietness and warmth, as well....

Right in the center of town - just a few blocks from the Plaza Sol metro stop, this was a great jumping off point for all of our Madrid adventures. 3 of us stayed in a room with 3 twin beds. The room was tiny but we weren't paying much so we were fine with it. The main reason I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a double room and liked it. We had some difficulty locating this hotel, many people did not seem to know the address, although it was quite near the Sol metro station. (It was our mistake, we took the wrong way first). The room is clean. We had a room with windows facing the... More

The location is great for sightseeing in Madrid's old town. You're steps away from Plaza Mayor and less than a block or two from Puerta del Sol. We really enjoyed being so central and our destination was always a short walk from our room. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful. Some have a bit of a language... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
