Hostal Ivor

What is it that a traveler needs from an accommodation? Cleanliness, safety, comfort, and friendliness are essentials. Now, add an incredible central location convenient for sightseeing and you have an incredible value. We were forced into a late arrival because of flight delays coming from Lisbon. We were greeted warmly and taken to a room in a seemingly empty establishment (most of the other room doors were open because they were empty). Our beds were comfortable. The attendant did not speak English, which was actually kind of nice as it forced me to use my Spanish skills. We had previously stayed at a posher hotel about a block away, but I will definitely make this my home base the next time I am in Madrid.

Room Tip: The hotel is several floors up. We requested a quiet room, which we received.

I would recommend hostel Igor to anybody who is looking for reasonably priced,clean hotel with a central location.A five minute stroll from sol square and playa Mayor with plenty of typical Spanish tapas bars.We stayed for 3nights and had our room cleaned every day...staff are very helpful..would stay here again without any question.

Room Tip: Don't taxi from airport...there's a bus right outside airport for 5euros...get off at playa...

This is a small "hostal" that delivers what it promises: a nice, clean room, good wifi, clean private bathrooms, working elevators... I have stayed there 3 times and they are always friendly and the standard of the rooms has remained as it should. Do not expect design or a modern environment, but it does have a clean and renovated feel, not like those hostels where you can find the old bed or the covers from the grandma of the owners! this place is just neat.

The location is just wonderful, walking distance to 2 metro stations, Opera Station has an elevator so if you are coming with luggage you can just catch the metro from the airport to Opera.

They helped us booking a flamenco show and were helpful delivering messages, and we had to organise a pick-up of a parcel with a courier and they were happy to keep it for collection which was very nice so we could get on with our day.

Stayed at Hostal Ivor for a few nights when first arrived in Spain. Great spot between Sol and Opera Metros.

Good sized clean rooms and bathrooms and the hosts were quite helpful. Would recommend for the location.

I had an excellent stay here at the end October. The location is fabulous.....central to all major sites...easy to take the Metro or walk. My room no.13 was extremely clean. When I asked for a hairdryer and fridge, they were delivered to me immediately. The adjustable thermostat in the room (heat) worked well....not too hot or too cold. The staff is great...very friendly and helpful. Though, I did have difficulty with internet/wi-fi......This is an old building with thick walls, difficult to get a connection....very intermittent; but was able to get a strong connection in the lobby/registration desk on the 2nd floor (I occasionally kept the receptionist company there while checking my email). Plenty of electrical outlets, too, for gadgets! En-suite bathroom was kept immaculately. Water pressure in shower was great; small shampoo and aloe vera gel soap was a nice touch. I had a room with a balcony overlooking Calle de Arenal. It can be noisy some nights as it is a main pedestrian street, but street noise does not bother me. Street cleaners are very meticulous in the wee hours of the morning. TV in room has all Spanish-language stations. I was extremely impressed with this little hostal and look forward to future stays here. I highly recommend it!

A great value Hostal right in the centre of Madrid, excellent location for walking to all the major sites. The room and ensuite were spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly and happy to help. It mentions on the website that there are mini fridges in each room, we were in two single rooms and neither had a fridge, but when we mentioned this a small fridge was brought straight away :). I would definately recommend the Hostal Ivor for a budget stay in Madrid. I will be back!
