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.
Located in the central area with walking distance to almost all main attractions. I requested for a quiet room and was given one at the back which I like. Staff are nice and will try their best to accomodate your request. Theres no lift in the bldg so be prepared to carry your heavy luggage all the way up. No english channel on the tv. Wifi will not work at the back rooms. But I will still be back bec I like the location and I like how quiet the place is.
Stayed here for 2 nights when following Leicester City. Great location, about 10 mins walk from SOL station. On a fairly busy street that has bars outside so can be noisy until the early hours, be warned. Rooms are clean and functional, as is the bathroom. Didn't spot an aircon unit so that might be worth checking out, we visited in April and it was beginning to get warm. There is free wifi, which worked very well. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall, good value for money, clean and tidy and it a great location for easy walking to all major sites of Madrid.
I am a travel-light traveler and find this hotel is perfect for me. It just take six minutes walk from Plaza Mayo metro exit to the hostal. The hostal is located on the side street and very easy to find it. All the rooms seem away from street and are very quiet. The room looks out of dated but a very comfortable bed. It will be a little difficult for traveler with heavy luggage because hostal is on the third floor with no lift. It is also a very short walk to the airport shuttle bus stop from the hostal.( about 10 minutes walking). The room rate is cheap compared to most hotels of Madrid. It's a ideal place for backpacker or travel-light person to pick this hostal .
Location was one of the best ones I've had when travelling through Europe, walkable to all the attractions and sights. Stay was in a very cute and quaint place, lots of colours I recall which helped bring some life into the rooms. The only downfall to our 2 nights spent here was that the wifi was very poor. I had to sit by the front door or in the bathroom just to get a weak connection, to be able to send message out to family that I was okay. Anyone travelling will know wifi can be important, for mapping out new locations, searching reviews, etc so it was definitely a pain. Other than that, great stay.
the staff were friendly, but very disorganized. The room was very dated and smelled faintly of cigarettes. They really should get new bedding. We also did NOT have wifi in our room, which was pretty frustrating. Overall the room was adequate and in a good location, but not what I expected.
