The room was very clean. But the walls are very thin so you can hear every single word, and other things in another room. The price was too expensive for this room! But it was very central. we had no balcony, but we paid for it!

I stayed at this hostel while passing thru Madrid to Gibraltar. The staff was pleasant, the room was clean and it was all that I needed. It was very close to many restaurants and bistros. The room was of average European size. I recommend this place for what I needed.

Great price and excellent location right off Puerta del Sol. The hotel is close to the metro and several great restaurants. Rooms were air conditioned and each had their own bathroom, tv, and safe box to store valuables during the day (even though the rooms were very secure). My room had the best blackout curtains I've ever seen. The sun... More

We were received in a friendly and efficient way, and the room cleaning was done regularly. (The reception was not always available, though, and more information about getting around in the city, as well as utilising the transport system would have been very useful, especially when contacting visitors after confirmation. One example is the diffference in transport cost between a... More

Buget accomodation in an excellent location just a few steps from Puerto de sol. The rooms where cleaned daily, had aircon and an comfortable bed and their own bathroom. The hotel also offered free wifi. I guess that this place is a redone Spanish apartment and therefore a little noisy from the hallway since the doors are thin, if you... More

I recently stayed in the Playa Hostal arriving late and lost one cold night. The best thing about the place was the price, and I negotiated a better price on a longer stay. I think it was excellent value for money. I liked the room; it was just so in every respect. (Slightly small mattress, but hey I'm tall :)... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
