This is a great place for short visits to Madrid, it is located in Chamberi neighborhood, very close to Plaza Olavide, where you can find a lot of restaurants, including a new vegetarian one where I ate this past summer, don’t remember the name now. Around Plaza Olavide there are good beer bars as well. Hotel Trafalgar is at walking... More

Was recommended the hotel as a good budget option by a friend who lived in the area and was not disappointed. It is not at all fancy but is just fine and is in a nice area. There are about 4 metro stops 5 minutes walk away in different directions so easy to connect. I also walked into Madrid centre... More

Nice, basic hotel. Very plain. NO mini-bar. No free WiFi, but free dial-up if your devices can still cope with the cables! Reasonable walk from city center, with lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. Everything I needed, and at a great price.

This hotel is nice with a really good location. Short walk to the city centre about 30 minutes. Lots of stores and restaurants near by. Although during siesta and on Sunday most are closed. I wouldn't recommend the breakfast deal as there is it is lacking in variety. Staff also speak little English and are somewhat friendly. Rooms are average... More

Doesn't provide much but good value for price, first I was in a very small room with good view and light, the room consisted of one single bed and some space for legs and a small suitcase. When viewing TV you had to sit on the bed, a chair would not fit. The other room that I got (corner room)... More

From the out side I couldn't tell what I had gotten myself into, but when I opened the door to my room I was pleasantly surprised. I had a single room. So, I had a twin bed, a desk, bathroom, closet, and VERY CLEAN. Think of as a a really good dorm room. On the bus line, and about a... More

The hotel is in Chamberi, a very nice neighborhood, and it is quiet. You can sleep very well at night, because there are no noise. The room was small, but it is nicely renovated. The metro station is just 2 minute walk from the hotel. I walked to Colon and Biblioteca Nacional and it is just 20 minutes at a... More

I had a citybreack in Madrid, with my husband at the beginning of june. The hotel is on a main boulevard, but inside you can't hear the noise, so it's ok. The breakfast is poor, but you have what to eat, so if you are not pretentious, you'll be fine! The room is clean and simple. Also, the location is... More

I don't know if I have ever stayed at a hotel in which the room was so simple but so functional. Extremely good value in a very convenient location -- close to shops and the metro. Very clean. If you don't need a gym or swimming pool and just want a nice, functional place to stay, this is it.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
