Very good value for a money. This is a family-run guest house (hostal, not a hostel), thus you get what you expect from a hotel (except breakfast) for an excellent price. Very central location: just a few minutes away from the central square Sol. The only disadvantage (might be an advantage for some...) is that there are prostitutes just over...

The hotel is in a great location for walking Madrid and for using the Metro. The room was very small, but clean and comfortable, at a reasonable price. As a solo traveler, it was nice to find a room designed as a single, but with a small bath.

Our stay at this hostel was amazing. The stuff was super friendly and helpful. We spent there 6 days, we had decided to stay at a cheaper place because we like exploring a new city so we didn't plan to stay inside a lot. Our room was pretty small but very cozy. We had a lovely balcony with a nice...

I didn't know what to expect as this was a last minute face-face hotel but from the outside I was expecting a 2* hostel. It surprised me, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and didn't seem racist at all unlike with previous hotels we tried to kip at. The showers were very nice and the bedrooms were clean and...

I am torn on the score as in the past I have liked it far better. The rooms are simple and small, many have balconies to the front(these are far noisier with noise from people outside all hours though far worse from about 1am to about 5am). All room have a private bathroom with shower only, a small refrigerator, and...

This place had everything we were looking for: good location (right next to the metro stop), comfortable beds, clean room, private bathroom, lots of light, very affordable price, quiet at night, helpful staff and a bonus balcony. Sure on the corner near the hotel are some unsavory characters but they are no bother and the restaurant next door was my...

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
