The five of us continued our stay in Spain by traveling from Marbella to Madrid for 4 days in November 2011. It is difficult to find places that have a room for three adults. Thanks to TA and numerous private messages we decided to book the Hostal Gonzalo. What a delightful decision. Our group of 5 women are used to traveling together and this is the first time since my first trip to Europe in the early 1970’s that I have booked such a small hostal and without any firsthand knowledge except for the trip reports raving about Javier and his family hotel. Hostal Gonzalo is perfect for walking everywhere. We loved the fact that we could walk up the street for breakfast and around the corner for dinner and drinks. I love antiques and I would have purchased the door of the Hostal Gonzalo if Javier would have sold it to me. Yes, thank goodness there is an elevator; however several of the younger women in our group walked the stairs several times a day for exercise. Please be sure to close the elevator doors when you exit, if not someone will have to walk down and close. Our rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, always clean towels and yes always hot water for our showers. It turned cold while we were there and our rooms were warm and plenty of blankets on the beds. The location is the best, great for seeing the Prado, going shopping, getting to the Hop on hop off bus, the Plaza Mayor and at night The Palace Hotel for a drink. We always felt safe walking everywhere. In the sitting area are many books of Madrid and useful information for us tourists. On the morning of our departure for the US we had to leave very early (6:30AM) Roberto was up and had the taxis waiting for us and then took all of our bags down to the taxis. We would go back to the Hostal Gonzalo for another visit to Madrid. Everyone at the Hostal Gonzalo is wonderful. So glad we decided on the Hostal Gonzalo! As Rick Steves says there is a reason that the Hostal Gonzalo is included in every guide book and resource!
