Booked three nights at this centrally located Hostal. A mere minute's walk from Sol in the very heart of Madrid (and indeed Spain), with great access to public transport and to all the great sightseeing spots. Breakfast was included in the very reasonable price, and consisted of toasted 'rustic' bread with a choice of toppings, and a self serve buffet,... More

Alhambra represents top value for money for a short weekend break. Contemporarily decorated, albeit a little dark, smart and clean rooms with a decent 'rainfall' style shower. The breakfasts at a nearby café were good too. It's centrally located to Sur and Plaza Major and has a number of bars and cafes nearby. The rooms may be a little small... More

I booked a single room, but they upgraded me for free. Nice room, refurbished, everything you need. Good speedy internet. Friendly staff. Great location in center. I did not have breakfast but it was offered. It could be inconvenient that it was not on site.

My room was newly furnished room. But the building it self was very old. Very dark and little bit of sewege smell. I turned on the heater but took very long time to heat up the room. Staffs were kind and helpful. Breakfast was ok.

The pluses: Excellent location, a minute's walk from the Puerta del Sol, which is the heart of the city and a major metro stop. Friendly, helpful front desk staff, all of whom spoke English. Tastefully designed room with a comfortable bed and large shower. Reasonably priced, and no surprises when it came time to pay. Some room deals include a... More

I loved the location in the charming area between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana. It´s just perfect. Price was reasonable and good value for a clean and functional room and a good nights sleep. Breakfast was included in a rustic genuine restaurant a few blocks away, simple but sufficient and picturesque. No window and no working WiFi in... More

Ugly from outside, lovely from inside. Vey close to center and rooms are very clean, modern and fully equipped with everything you ll need. Space is just right and receptionist are all very helpful. Only thing is that you hear what is happening in the room next to you the rest it s 5/5.

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.
