Little family run hostal. Nicely located in a great neighborhood near the museums and the Atocha train station which grants you easy access to the airport. The rooms are clean, but a bit small. Can't say much about the owners as we only saw them in the check-in and check-out.

The locations is safe, central and well placed for sights and attractions. Jaen is near the Lope de Vega museum - the same building, and close to two of Madrid's most famous museums, Prado and Sophia, and pretty much in the heart of the tourist area. Its only about a 10 - 15 minute walk between them.The owners are wonderful and very helpful.

This is a perfectly good pension in a great neighbourhood - Barrio de las Letras. Close to everything important in Madrid. Clean and quiet with all the basics covered. We stayed in room three, which is a at the end of a hallway with a balcony overlooking the street. I would ask for that one again.

Room Tip: Room three overlooks the street, which is pretty and not too noisy.

The owners are a wonderful couple who speaks very little English but plenty of warmth. They recommended great neighbor restaurant and made sure we are comfortable. I had a single bed in tiny little room with a shared bathroom. The perfectly cheery and clean room had a little balcony that lets in a ton of light (alas, also the noise from a couple of loud businessmen talking in an outdoor bar).

The most important things about this pension, however, are the following: (a) it is wicked cheap. 40 euros a night! (b) the location is ridiculously good. Las Letras is a great area with some fantastic restaurants (check out Jazz Bar down the street: great vibes and good drinks). Pension Jaen is two blocks from the Prado and Thyssen (and a Starbucks)!

You can pay 4 times as much for a hotel or you can stay at Jaen, save your money, and go out for a great meal every night.

PS: The walls are a bit thin and the wifi signal can be spotty. You are in Spain: get off the internet, go out, drink some good wine, and go to bed.

Although far from the best hotel in Madrid, it is perfectly adequate for a stop over in Madrid, mainly because of its cheapness in the middle of the main tourist area.It cost 40 euros per night to stay in the heart of the city, near the Prado and other main attractions. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and there are 3 metro stations equidistant from the Pension. The decor was not my style but it was clean. The rooms are a bit poky but enough for a couple of nights as we were out all day anyway. There is no sign outside so you need to make sure you know the exact address. Ring the bell for the 3rd floor and they will let you in the main door.

Room Tip: Make sure you know the address as you can easily walk past it. There is no ground entrance but you need to take the lift to the 3rd floor.
