Booked via an online site that offered an additional discount, so it was excellent value for money. The deciding factor for choosing Rober over other hostales was that the room was advertised as a "Double Room With View." Usually, I book single rooms that wind up being tiny and dark. Pros: Fast check-in. I indeed did get a room with... More

Hostal R. Rober is in a perfect location for a break in Madrid; everything you could want to see is in easy walking distance and there are plenty of places to eat/drink close by if you don't want to wander too far. Also, being so close to Plaza de Opera means you've also got great access to both metro and... More

Very good location, perfect for sightseeing. Positive: friendly staff, very clean bathroom. Good value for money. Negative: the room wasn't heated, it was very cold during the night in October.

Very close to Opera and a few minutes walk from Sol, Plaza Real and Palacio Real. Very good value, clean with own bathroom and even included emergency soap and shampoo. Hotel is on fifth floor. My first choice when visiting Madrid.

Very nice location. Room was very hygienic but bathroom rather small. Although the street below was crowdy I didn't suffered noise nuisance. Very close to the Sol metro station, which is also an attribute of the Hostel.

I enjoyed my stay here and found the brightly coloured walls made the place more cheerful than most. The staff are friendly although they speak minimal English. Comfortable bed, spacious room and clean. Plenty of cheap cafes around for breakfast. 2 min walk to Opera Station and 5 mins to Sol Station.

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.
