Opted out of a hostel stay and found this for cheap ($70 CAD) through Booking.com. If you're coming from Sol station you pass both Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. Minutes away from Mercado de San Miguel and located at the start of La Latina. Staff were very nice and let me check in hours before 2:00. Room is small... More

This was my first time to Madrid and the hotel was in a great location. The street that the hotel is located on has some great tapa restaurants to try. The hotel had a true Spanish vibe. It's walking distance to plaza mayor and plaza del sol. Another plus was the great food and wine that is served on the... More

It was my first time in Madrid, my mother and myself came to celebrate her birthday and to finally see the Prado museum. I chose Posada del Dragon out of several boutique hotels I contacted based on their location, design and mostly the great communication the staff provided already at the pre-booking stage (some hotels didn't even bother replying to...

Arrived home today after a 4 night stay at this hotel. We got the tube from the airport with 2 changes and got off at La Latina stop which was only a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Staff were friendly on our arrival and showed us to our room which was small but very trendy and quirky and had... More

Cozy small rooms beautifully designed in a nice building located in the heart of the city. Good atmosphere with a restaurant, bar and cafeteria inside. Best price at least on weekdays, I don´t know about weekends.

Loved this hotel. The location just minutes from the Plaza Mayor and Puerta Del Sol was idyllic and the hotel itself was beautiful and the staff very helpful and friendly. Will definitely return to this hotel on my next trip to Madrid.

We chose this hotel based on the good reviews however I don't agree with them. The location is very good, just a few minutes walk from plaza major and la Latina underground. However the room itself was very shabby. The white walls were filthy with all sorts of stains and the furniture was bashed and scratched. We weren't given any... More

We divided our party between this Hotel and an apartment due to the proximity of each other. We were really impressed by the amazing food both at the Lobby and the Restaurant. Rooms are somehow small but with ingenious and clever interior design to maximize space and avoid making you feel claustrophobic (ours did not have windows). Super quite ,... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
