The Pearl of Asturias!! I almost hate to write this because I want to have a place to go to when I visit Madrid!! It's a bargain especially if your focus is a cheap, clean place to sleep. The rooms are on the spartan side but are simple and clean. Good neighborhood, right in the heart of Madrid.
Probably 150m from the Plaza Mayor, so very near the Puerta del Sol if you are into that mess. The hotel is clean and safe. The folks at the desk are more than hospitable. I believe they speak English as well. Rooms are straight forward - nothing fancy but clean and a flat screen TV that lets you switch over to English (or "V.O.") for films and TV programs. There is no elevator although they have one of those stairway lifts that goes up to the 1st floor. Charged fire extinguishers - Always nice to see!
There are ots of good, affordable bars and restaurants in the area. If this is not the Latina district, it is probably just a street or two away. Great, affordable, lively area, although we had no problem with noise, though our room was on the side street.
No parking but you can park at one of the underground public parking lots around the city for around 21€ per 24 hours. We parked in Principe Pio underground parking/metro stop which, as it turned out, was only 3 stops from the Sol metro stop (which is the closest to the hotel). If you like to shop, that might be a good place for you to leave your car. The parking is below a beautiful parking mall. If you want to park on the cheap, you can go outside the city and take a train in or park in long term parking out at Barajas. Probably not worth the time or trouble, though.
As I read was the case, management happily allowed us to leave our bags with them after we checked out as there were a few more places we wanted to visit before leaving Madrid on our final day. Perfect.
