The Ganivet is a modern central hotel close to a host of bars,restaurants and cafes. The hotel rooms on the top 5th floor all have reasonably large balconies and good sized rooms. For the money the Ganivet provides a fair deal for the traveller...the staff are helpful and polite.Not much to find fault with the place except perhaps the absence...

Stayed here with husband and son. Room was big enough for a long weekend and bathroom was a great size with bath and shower. Wifi was available in room and allowed me to FaceTime. Would recommend breakfast in the cafe not restaurant as it's much cheaper and more Spanish. Hotel is about a 3-4 minute walk to metro and about...

We went there for a short trip. The hotel is located near the Plaza Majore and also near Vincente Calderon stadion. We were really nicely welcomed and the staff was friendly. The rooms were confortable and clean. There is a nice mini bar in the hotel. There is everything to enjoy a stay in Madrid.

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.

“Ours was a triple room. A little on the smal size by North Amrican standards, but that applies to most places. We spent all of our time out, so the room was perfectly fine for us to simply crash in at the end of each day.”
