I loved Hostal Gonzalo from the first sight! Hostal is situated in the 19th century building with an old elevator (which sometimes does not work!). The owner is very friendly, I should say cordial and always ready to help you, so you have an impression that you are staying with your old friends or even relatives. The room is rather... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hostal Gonzalo. It was in a great location within walking distance to the Prado and many other sites. It was also a short easy walk to the train station. We were allowed to pick between a room on the front with a balcony or a room in the back. We enjoyed the balcony, but it... More

In the past month, I stayed at the Hostal Gonzalo twice and cannot recall having had a more conveniently situated, friendlier, cleaner place to spend the night in a city. As an art-and-culture-loving traveller, I am not interested in my lodging having swimming pools and fancy restaurants - I want a comfy place to rest up between jaunts throughout the... More

No need to read any more reviews. This is the best place to stay for the cost. It is run by Javier and his family with someone on site all the time. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable at there place and in Madrid. The rooms are immaculate and cleaned daily. It is in... More

A gem of a hostel providing comfortable, clean and secure accommodation in possibly the best location in Madrid, all at an economical price. The staff were friendly, efficient and genuinely took pride in the service they provided. A small example: on the first night I found the one pillow provided too low so I folded a spare blanket and put... More

Rooms were well kept and clean. We asked for a full/queen and got twins. Location is top notch though, with the Prado across the street. Make sure you go to the third floor!! It can be confusing. There are lots of great places to eat around the area - stay off the main streets to eat as they can be... More

This is my home away from home. Very clean, great service, reasonably priced, great quiet but still central location. Rarely did we need to use public transport as it's in the centre. Javier and family are the best hosts. Thanks again!!!!!

Javier looked after us like we were family. He directed us to a breakfast spot that became a daily visit, several delicious evening dining spots and suggested local wines. He never seemed to tire of what must have been really mundane questions. Gracias!

We've just stayed three nights in Hostal Gonzalo, located in a road only a few minutes' walk from the Prado and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums. The hostal is on the third floor of a building, reached by an antique but completely adequate lift, and is entirely modern inside. Our room was not grand, but large enough and reasonably priced for the... More

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.
