Arrived here for a few days' break in May. Found it difficult to find at first as there is only a small door off the main street but the location just off Plaza was superb. My room was huge, with recently refurbished bathroom, extremely comfy bed and tiny balcony with lovely shutter doors. Amazing value for the price. The lift...

The hostel is clean, the bedding is also. Take under consideration that it's very old (the furniture too), but the location is amazing. I had little time in Madrid and wanted to be able to walk everywhere, and I did. Right on Puerto del Sol and the metro station by that name. Lots of restaurants, shops and dane clubs nearby...

I stayed one night in this hostel and I was really satisfied with my stay. The location is just perfect, there are shops and supermarkets nearby and it's just in the center. Own bathroom with hot water and we could come and go whenever we wanted. Clean and nice, definitely worth the price.

Pros : Convenient location right at the city centre, next to the metro station of Sol, the environment around may be a bit noisy as it's near the main street but is acceptable. WiFi is strong and room is clean and tidy. Cons: The receptionist is not always around and speaks little English, unable to help with providing information

Exasperated with the high cost of Madrid hotels, we stayed here on a Hotwire deal. We had a very simple room with 3 single beds and a full bath. Everything worked well. The bathroom was a bit tired and they definitely need new towels. On the other hand, the wifi was very strong. The live-in owners are not unfriendly, but...

I have already stayed in this hostel three times, and surely I will book this place for every visit in Madrid in the future. Ideally located, only one minute walk from metro Sol, I can drop at any moment after shopping or eating or visiting, to take a little pause. As located just next to very touristic Puerta del Sol,...

Perfectly located hostel in the city center. Staff is ok, not too friendly but helpful. the room is not too big, but very clean. since this is a walking area, its quite loud during the night, but this is its olny disadvantage. highly recommended!

This hotel is located right in the heart of Madrid, literally around the corner from the central square Puerta del Sol. The location is absolutely perfect! You have all the sights, shops, restaurants, bars etc. right there on the street. The downside is that all the noise from the street comes right to your bedroom and during the night the...

I travel to Madrid quite frequently and am always on the look-out for affordable accommodation around the Puerta del Sol, right in the heart of the bustling city. While looking for a place I stumbled across the Hostal Aresol and decided to give it a try - and certainly don´t regret it. It is located roughly 50 meters from Puerta...

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
