“Very nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I was there for business travel, but this hostal would be OK for other type of vacation, except of family. It has been renovated and it is clean. The only bad experience of this it would be that I have never been informed that I have to collect my keys from another location. I had to gate crash, reach the entrance of the hostal which is at 2nd floor and then use an intern phone waiting for us in front of the main door. Then we received information of how to get to other location to collect the keys.

Αt check in the reception staff was not very happy to give some basic proposals for good places to eat around. Anyway the hostal is right in the city center so we had quite a lot to choose from.

Overall was nice.

Room Tip: Don't go directly to the hotel, you will have to go to another hostal close to Prado, where ther...

We stayed at Prado hostal at the end of January. Overall we are satisfied about the rooms and the services. It is in the center of Madrid really close to the Main square and the Metro station.
The reception is located out of the building but this is no problem.Daily cleaned and recent renovated.

The Hostal Prado (not to be confused with the Hotel El Prado, an Ibis establishment) is in a side street in a very pleasant and safe area of central Madrid. The main museums and squares are all within 25 minutes' walk. There are innumerable restaurants and bars all around.

You need to check in at the Hostal Marlasca, a couple of minutes walk away. This is a slightly painful process, as no English is spoken, and not all the staff know what they are doing. (One of us was nearly checked-in under the name "Great Britain"!) They ask for payment in advance, plus a 5 EUR cash deposit for the key.

The Hostal Prado itself is up two flights of worn wooden stairs; not a very encouraging start, but once inside the hostal itself all is fine.

One reviewer thought it difficult to find - no idea why, it is perfectly straighforward.

We stayed four nights at Hostal Prado.
The location is really good, really close to the Puerta del Sol square and metro station. The rooms were very clean, well maintained and quite. No elevator available and no breakfast service, but plenty of options, just steps away.
We had a really hard time finding the hotel, especially as you need to go first to a different address nearby, to check-in and get your key. When we called the reception to ask for directions, the guy there did not speak a word of English, French, Italian...just a really bad Spanish and some Russian... this was really annoying.

our stay was just incredible!! everything was brand new, rooms have plenty of space, specialy triples, beautifull images covering the wall. the area is simply the best, near by the "plaza santa ana", and just half way between the museums and the royal palace.
the only "bad" thing was the check in/out . excellente quality - price, highly recomed!!
