The room was tidy and well maintained. The beds were firm and the pillows were soft. However the wifi was very weak, sometimes I had to go into the hallway to pick it up. The owner didnt know much english and he wasn't very friendly. I liked the fact the room overlooked the busy street Calle de Fuencarral which allowed...

Located right in the tourist part of Madrid, we found it to be surprisingly quiet and comfortable with very friendly staff - so much so that we booked a further 6 nights when we return from a 10 day tour of Morocco.

We stayed 4 nights at Sonsoles. The building is beautiful inside. The rooms are small but good. A little cold in the Winter. The bathroom has plenty of hot water. Perfectly located close to shopping and great food. All in all really great for the Price.

I stayed there for one night. Room was small, bed and bathroom were okay but clean. Apparently Madrid is full of family hostels, who live in the hostel and rent rooms to travelers. To me it felt like invading to the family's privacy, which made me feel VERY uncomfortable. Also, in order to get in you have to buzz the...

I stayed here for three nights as a solo traveller, for me it was a perfect base only 150 yards from the bustling busy street of Gran Via, and easy access to the Metro. It was hard to find as it is tucked away really amongst the shops on Calle Fuencarral. The staff were friendly and the room was ok,...

We stayed in this hotel when we recently visited Madrid and we were very pleased with the room. The bedroom was a good size and the bathroom was also very nice. The staff did not say a lot and could not speak any English which was slightly difficult when trying to sort out the room information but apart from that...

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.

“Again, it is a perfect place to visit the city center. Not a place to lazy around the room the whole day long, as it one only has basic hostel amenities. Wifi, TV, vending machines, and cleanliness.”
