4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

The room was quite alright for 3 people, the staff were very kind and helpful as to recommendations. Regardless of what the hotel has to offer on the inside, it's the location that makes it perfect.

Plaza Del Sol is less than 1 minute away from this hotel and restaurants and Pubs are just under the Hotel and around it. It is very well located that you can spend the day touring Madrid, get to the Hotel, change clothes and go to restaurant or simply sit at Plaza Del Sol.

Now with this location comes one downfall, the noise at night. On weekends pubs are way busy until early morning so the noises from crowd can be quite loud (A group of friends were singing Happy Birthday to someone at 4:30am) However, if you've been touring all day and drinking Sangrias at night, you'll sleep like a log and won't hear a thing.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher level or not right on the street bellow to avoid loud noise at night.

We stayed there for the Madrid Marathon 2012. A bit hard to find at first, few doors and we happen to get through service door. Main entrance a lot better:) Clean and tidy, friendly stuff. A bit hard to enter as after certain time you need to ring a bell downstairs. Breakfast in a restaurant behind a corner, took as a long time to find it the first morning. Stuff in the restaurant very abrupt, if you dont speak Spanish it is your problem! Overall happy enough with the hotel itself. Great location, walking distance form the centre, lots of restaurants around.

Advantages: good location, clean rooms and common areas, good breakfast with room. Hotel staff were very helpful and courteous.
Disadvantage: only negative was very loud guests in adjacent room, late at night, combined with apparently thin interior walls.

Room Tip: corner room might be better for noise issues.

In the heart of the city, next to Plaza del Sol. Lots of great restaurants in the vicinity. Good for visitors to Madrid. Hop on hop off bus just down the street. Good value. Easy walk to most of the sights of Madrid. Maybe a bit noisey at night with people in the hallways. Breakfast included at nice restaurant around the corner.

The Hostel offers rooms with a safe, and are average in size for a short visit.

It was a bit hard to find from the street as a sign a few doors down makes it a bit confusing to find.

Once inside there is an elevator that you can use, but its so small i missed seeing it and walked up two flights of stairs.

The checkin is fine, they have free wifi, and it seems that the guy at the counter is always having a bad day (maybe it's just a borring job?) ... So be easy on him.

The bed is not soft but feels great anyway after a long day of walking. And you can hear people walking in the hall at night.

Overall it's a good place for short stays because it is so close to everything from the Palace to Hemmingway's bars that he frequented, to the oldest restaurant in the world.

I would probably stay there again because it's so convenient. If you are looking for luxury, room service, bell hops, perfect service, spa services ... Forget it this place isn't for you, go somewhere else.

If your looking for a simple, safe and secure place to leave your things while exploring Madrid on foot, then you will like this place. My rating is strictly because of how convenient this place is when it comes to exploring Madrid.

We stayed 2 days, just a great weekend in Madrid. The absolute plus is the location - 1minute from Puerta del Sol is amazing. Everything is close on foot, so you do not need to buy any tickets (apart from airport).
Hotel is small but staff is very friendly and helpful. Great value are breakfasts served in near restaurant. Very tasty and Spanish :) Rooms are quite small but we only sleeped there so no problem. Bathrooms are even smaller :) but it is ok. It is great value if you stay there for a weekend! The only minus is lack of Wifi in our room - it is available in hostal however.
Generally great pick! Defenitely I would come back there

Room Tip: ask for a room not in the end of corridor :)

This hotel was a little hard to find, but once we found it ( there is another Al hambra sign on the next bldg - whih is an old sign they need to take down) it is a gem. Located very close to SOL metro station, where all the shops, and restautrants are. Plenty of activities. All the bus and Metro transit runs by this area. the rooms are clean with Hard wood floors throughout, clean bathrooms ( european bathrooms are always small for American standards). every room has a window, ours was on the back of the hotel, so it was good not to have any noise coming in from the streets below, as people stay up till 2AM in the busy streets. the breakfast is good. And they apparently have internet in the rooms, I could never get mine to work. Also our room had a seperate hot and cold water faucet ( weird), should be replaced with a new single faucet. Room had Cold AC, clean towels, very secure. Really enjoyed our stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: Located in Metro SOL, ask for a room away from the street for a quiter nights sleep. For those trav...
