Reviewed yesterday NEW

Centrally located with easy access to the metro and in walking distance of Plaza Major, the area around the hotel comes alive in the evening when all the tapas bars are open. Very attentive hotel staff; clean, spacious rooms, plentiful breakfast buffet and a cafe serving snacks and drinks.

This is a good quality, three star hotel, offering affordable accommodation for those wanting a central location. Rooms are typical of a modern hotel. Some people who had a room overlooking the street complained about noise, but we were fortunate in having a room at the rear. The only "English-speaking" TV channel was Russia Today, which gave an interesting slant...

This was our 4th visit to the Hotel Ganivet and we stayed 5th to 8th of May. The hotel is only a leisurely 10 minute walk to Plaza Mayor and the wonderful Mercado de San Miguel and nearby beautiful shopping areas. The hotel itself just sparkles with clean and attractive rooms. The buffet breakfast has a wide and varied selection...

Easy to get to as very close to a Metro station, in fact the location is ideal for walking to most of the places of interest in Madrid. The staff were very friendly and the rooms, although a little on the small side were clean and adequate for a short stay. Storage space for clothes is limited so not ideal...

Stayed here from 12-15th May - a really nice hotel. If I was being really picky Id say our room was a bit dark - it backed onto another building. However, the room was clean and really quiet, and we didn't spend that much time in there anyway. Staff were pleasant, especially the guy who worked on Reception. Plenty choice...

I chose the hotel because it was in an ideal location to get to the tennis at Caja Magica. It is also in a good spot to walk into town. Breakfast ok. If you buy the ingredients why not cook them nicely. Noisy club open till 6am at weekends across the road. For me the hotel room was too hot....

Very friendly hotel - really useful car park in the basement. Clean and tidy room with handy cafe / bar downstairs. Nice little pool on the roof with views over the city. Close to the Toledo monument - south west of the city centre (useful if you want to travel to Toledo or La Mancha by car)

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
