Perfect for a few days visiting Madrid. There was air conditioning - essential for Madrid in July! The man who greeted us and checked us in was very helpful and gave us tips for the local area. Not far from Plaza de Santa Ana and plenty of bars and restaurants. Room was compact but fine for a few nights with... More

We spent 3 nights in total at Pension Magdalena and it turned out to be great value for money. The room was big and very clean, and the owner helped us take our luggage up the stairs (there is no lift but to be honest, it's an easy climb to the 3rd floor). He was very friendly, and also showed... More

Centrally located, within walking distance to major attractions. The room was clean, towels were changed every day. The room was small but it was worth the money. Bathroom was adequate size. Bed was a good size. However the window was missing, only a tiny window under the ceiling. Still didnt spoil the stay. Wifi was great. Hotel is located on... More

The location is great - walkable distance from train station and very close to a metro station. After a long day of walking though, the last thing you want to do is climb 4 flights of rickety stairs to your room. The staff was friendly, but we only saw one employee at our time of check-in (we stayed 3 nights)... More

Me and my boyfriend just spent 4 days in this fantastic City and we are really satisfied with the place where we slept.

This pension is near the very centre of Madrid (Puerta del Sol is less than 10 minutes walking); we paid €30/night a double with bathroom and air conditioning. Room was cleaned (and towels changed) daily during our staying, as in a normal hotel. The staff has been helpful and nice (a smile is always the best of introductions), although I... More

I must admit I was impressed. May not look so good from the outside but the inside was impeccable. Clean, cheap, central located, welcoming and helpful staff. I spent 3 nights with my gf, they cleaned the room every day, gave us a map of the city, hairdryer, clean towels, shampoo etc. Fast and free wifi. 15 min walk from... More

We also picked this lodging due to its location and price. At first sight we were very apprehensive, not being backpackers but a young married couple. Although we didn't inform PM of our arrival time, our room was quickly prepared 5 minutes after we arrived. For the price we paid, we were amazed to have daily cleaning (overall it was... More

In the context of the way we were traveling (looking for good price but willing to pay more for quality, not backpackers). This hostel was pretty poor, we arrived to no reception and had to phone someone for assistants, the place is very badly sign posted and in a block of flats on the four floor - we entered the...

Staying in Lavapies

Neighborhood Profile
Lavapies
Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighborhood.
