This place near the Opera and in one of Madrid's prime locations worked out perfectly well for me and my girlfriend . This place is of great value for what it offers. The bedroom was clean and beautifully arranged. The private bathroom was small but...More
Stayed here for 4 nights. Excellent location steps away from Opera Metro n few minutes from palace. Brilliant helpful staff. Spotlessly clean. Definitely recommend 100% only small problem is the entrance door which is not well signed.
We stayed at Hostal Oriente on our first leg in Madrid and found the location to be a huge plus - right in front of Metro Station Opera, two minutes walking to Palacio Real, five minutes walking to Puerta Del Sol or Plaza Mayor. Bunch...More
In a very good location, in the city center and just one minute from the metro stop OPERA. Nice and cozy room. The receptionist was very helpful. No breakfast but across the hotel was a nice cafe with many options to have.
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.

There are two subway stops nearby. The closest one is Opera. It is just 50 meters from Oriente. Oriente is next door to McDonalds just upstairs. While a taxi ride is perhaps quicker, I would recommend the subway which is clean and efficient. The Madrid public transportation system is a good deal. We seldom take taxis in Europe.
