We loved our five day stay at Hostal Jaen. It was in a perfect location mid-way between the centre of Puerta del Sol and the museum area (almost literally a straight walk to the Prado on the right and the Thyssen on the left once you reach the main road perpendicular to Calle Cervantes, a five minute walk). It is...

Slap bang in the centre of the Barrio de Las Letras on a quiet little street in walking distance of some great bars, museums, cafes and attractions this place is clean, friendly, characterful with wonderful owners who treat you as guests in their home. Do not expect luxury or to speak English and you won't be disappointed. Surprisingly good value...

Surprisingly nice rooms and it's a really great location. We stayed in a room with toilet and shower for half the price friends payed for a hotel down the road (and ours had a lot more character ;-). It even had a flatscreen TV and wifi, if you want to spend any time in the room rather than enjoying the...

Would defo recommend hotel to anyone on a budget, 90 euros for two nights an absolute bargain. Room spotlessly clean and served purpose for just getting our heads down at night after a busy day sight seeing. Added bonus that hotel in great little neighbourhood with dozens of places to eat and drink.

Suprisingly lively rooms hidden away in a back street in a great location. Not hard to find and central to many of the tourist attractions. We stayed in two rooms, with and without toilet.. both were nicely decorated and clean. Great hidden gem in the middle of a big city.

I stayed at what is now called Hostal Jaen, at the same address in Madrid, so I assume it's the same place. It is an excellent choice for its price. It is located in the Las Letras section of Madrid, where streets are narrow and historic (this one is on the street where Cervantes lived and died), and where one...

This ultra-budget guesthouse is on the third floor of a building located on a side street about halfway between Puerta del Sol and the Prado. My wife and I stayed there for three nights in September. Our room was quite small, as expected, but spotlessly clean and freshly painted. It came with a small private bathroom with a shower. Air...

Firstly, scratch up on your Spanish, or have google translate with you because the owners English was as good as my Spanish. We got by and had a laugh doing it though. The rooms are fine, clean, fresh, everything worked. The w/c's are pretty much 'in' the room so it isn't very private if there are two of you but...

This hotel is small, but the location and price cannot be beat. We were within walking distance of the Reina Sofia, the Prado, the Retiro, the Gran Via, tons of shopping, and a lot of restaurants in the Plaza de Santa Ana. We didn't take a cab or public transportation anywhere, with the exception of taking a taxi from the...

You cannot ask for better value. This was my first time alone in Spain, and I felt truly safe and comfortable while staying at Jaen. Yes, you must first be buzzed in to the building, but once you're in the third floor lobby, you're greeted by cheery orange walls and incredibly friendly service. The owner went out of his way...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.

“If you are more than two, see about one of the larger rooms. Ours was just barely big enough for a couple, if they get along really well!”
