Despite initial reaction when walking in off the street, this is a great place to stay, the lady on reception could not be more friendly, the rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The central location is perfect for sightseeing/restaurants etc. Only problem some may have is with the noise from the plaza del sol outside which is very lively...

We were here 3 nights with my friend. Room was very simple, small and regular, but clean. No fridge, so no place to keep your beers/water cold. Breakfast was very simple, just coffee/tea toast with cheese/ham and marmalade. Some cereals also. But if you want something else, there's bakery/coffee shop just in next door. Service was really nice, friendly and...

I wish the Spanish tourist authorities would define “hostal” because I stayed in three with completely different standards – one was a fire trap with no lift, shared WC, shower with no privacy or maid service, while another was very good and this one was pretty good. It is in a great position on the Puerta del Sol and my...

-> Localization - The hostel is placed in the 4º floor of a building in plaza del sol, right in front of apple store and metro station "Vodafone Sol" so you are staying in the heart of Madrid's night and close to every point of interest. -> The cleaning wasn't bad but wans't good either. The shower was a little...

We booked a double ensuite room, and were pleasantly surprised - the room was spacious (compared to what you usually get in a 2 or 3* hotels in Europe), well appointed, with a small but clean bathroom. We even had a view of Puerta del Sol square which was great! The staff was friendly and nice, the whole place really...

First of all the room itself was very large with a great bed, shower, and stunning balcony over looking the plaza. More importantly however - the staff were absolutely amazing. I fell ill unfortunately during my stay, and the staff was amazing, helping me get to the hospital, waiting for me when I returned, letting me check out as late...

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
