An elevator provides access to this small Hostal on the second floor with just a few steps to manage. The en-suite rooms seem to vary in size and all are decorated in shades of grey, are comfortable and contain all the necessary features. The rooms overlook a friendly neighborhood irregularly shaped square which contains access to the Santo Domingo Metro... More

The hotel is clean & in excellent location. Great spot for night life & shopping. So close to tourist destinations!!! Brilliant all round. The hotel had lovely & friendly staff, you have 24 hour ballet service. The bedrooms are big & the bathroom has a great power shower. It's only minor issue is it's outside signage is difficult to find.... More

Great location, affordable pricing. The room was clean and nice and the staff was friendly and helpful -especially Xurxo at the front desk. He bent over backwards to help us find next day train tickets and saved us from a real dilemma. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic location, walking distance from lots of main attractions as well as restaurants and shops. Don't be put off by the exterior - the hotel occupies the second floor of an apartment block so shares a main door with the other levels, this did not look to inviting when we arrived in the dark but as soon as we entered...

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.
