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.

Right on Puerta del Sol in the building with the Tio Pepe sign, it is in a perfect location. The hostal is on the third floor, easily accessible by lift. I had an en-suite room, which although it was basic, was immaculately clean. A great budget option in the heart of the city.

Just spent 4 nights here, perfect location to easily get around and experience Madrid. Close to lots of bars and restaurant, no busy road noise, daily maid service. Friendly reception staff. I would certainly book here again.

I really wanted to like this place as a friend had said it was good value and comfortable. That was not my experience! I had a cell-like single room on the right hand side of the reception, which I wouldn't have complained too much about if it had been €25 for the night, but
