Its a very good City you should travel to. Great for a City Trip. You get the most of it if ypu travel by underground rail, and take the Sight Seeing tour of Madrid. I also took the train to Barcelona to see a bit of spain.

Arrival was fine, but you have to ring a door bell EVERYTIME you arrive. This can be a slight annoyance as you paid for a room but you need permission every time you come and go. You'll have to leave your key with front desk upon leaving which I was fine with. The twin sized room was miserably small. No... More

This was easy to find from either Opear or Sol metro stations. A few minutes from Plaza major and Mercado San Miguel. Bed was comfy but only double size, shower tiny but water hot. Needed nothing more, so much was at our door.

This was a great location in Madrid and there was no street noise late at night. The rooms do have thin walls, so bring ear plugs. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating!! They made the stay very enjoyable.

Hostal Alicante is located in Calle Arenal near Sol, so in terms of location you cannot do much better. The price is good too at 60 Euros a night for a private room for two with its own bathroom.. The Hostal is clean and quiet. The ambiance, however , is not fantastic. The different men who work at the desk... More

I look for two things when choosing somewhere to stay; a clean bed and a hot shower - I didn't get either. I stayed for 4 nights with two girlfriends in a tiny three bed room. When we first got there it seemed fine and cute but it had gone 1am and we were very tired! When we woke, there... More

The hostel is located right in between Opera and Sol Metro stations (aka the height of the tourist area). The room I stayed in was quite small, but it suited my needs just fine. There was a bit of noise throughout the hostel, but nothing more than you would expect during the busy season in Madrid. My room was not... More

I stayed in this hostal for one night and this was more than enough. It is really hard to get a room in Madrid at this time of the year so I didnt have much choice.

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.
