Despite this inn is placed in the Madrid's heart, the area is very quiet. It is very convinient if you want to discover Madrid on foot and there are plenty of shops, cafe, restaurant nearby.. The room it was clean and confortable. We haven't got a balcony, but we didn't need it, because we needed the room just to sleep.... More

The hotel is surrounded by nicely decorated restaurants and eateries of different varieties. It is quite a walking distance to the city metro station (Sol). Do take note that there are many narrow alleys and walkways to navigate. The service of the hotel staffs is commendable.

Let me begin by saying that this hostal has a great location, and to be fair front desk staff Daniel and Hector were phenomenal...However staying here was by far one of the worst lodging experiences I've had. Be warned that turning the AC on is at the "administration's discretion". With temperatures in the high 80's and low 90's we were... More

We had an excellent week at the Hostal Persal. The location is spot on, very close to Peurta Del Sol and Plaza Mayor. We managed to visit all the sights on foot.. The room was spotless, though on the smallish side. The staff was always very helpful, yet courteous and most of them spoke quite good English. Breakfast was always... More

Basic rooms with all the facilities you need, a comfortable bed, good shower and clean. The reception staff are friendly and very helpful - they assisted me in getting a broken lock off my case! The hotel is within walking distance to all the galleries, museums and the best plazas.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
