We stayed at the Laris as it was the only room we could find for the Saturday of the EU football finals in Madrid. We paid over $200 US for a dingy room that, fortunately, was missing the dragon. The neighborhood left a lot to be desired, but the Laris is pretty well situated if you want to be in...

My partner and I stayed at the Laris for our first 2 nights in Madrid and could not wait to leave. We booked using hotels.com so we got a good deal, but I would have been extremely annoyed if we'd paid full price. Whilst the location looks great on a map, in reality there are prostitutes everywhere and as soon...

Single male traveller in July 08, arrived in the area and the taxi driver said to me to be careful in this area. I thought "Yeah, I'm a big boy.." but after being grabbed by prostitutes and chased down the street by someone trying to sell me drugs, after 2 days of my 7 day stay, I was straight back...

This "hostal" was MUCH worse than I could have ever imagined! The location may have been "close to" the Gran Via; however, you had to walk down dark, alley-like streets filled with hookers, drug deals being made, suspicious people walking around. The TAXIS don't even want to go there. The police stopped us as soon as we arrived to tell...

I stayed in the Hotel Laris for 1 night for business in Madrid in May 2008. The hotel is fairly grotty - as mentioned previously, the location for the metro is fine, but there are many prostitutes and drug dealers hanging around. As a single female traveller returning back to the hotel after an evening meal at midnight, it's not...

My girlfriend got me trip to see a real madrid match and she opted for this hotel by not really reading any reviews. It was only after I found out about the wonderful gift that I went on and looked. I was slightly worried to hear the negative points about the prostitutes & junkies so I braced myself for the...

As mentioned in earlier reviews, the distance to the Gran Via is a big plus. But, as also mentioned before, returning from your dinner means passing by several prostitues and junkies. Which was probably the only moment of the day we didn't mind some rain, (prostitues and junkies apparently aren't very fond of it either) The rooms were ok, fine...

As mentioned in the other reviews, location is the best asset of this hotel ... Eventhough it is located in a neighbourhood with "putas", it is very central...the Gran Via ( Shopping, theatres) is right there around the corner ! As a Madrid lover, i really appreciate being so close from the center of this beautiful town. As for the...

Stayed at Hostal Laris a few days ago.Nothing has changed since 2005 except for more prostitutes and drug-dealers.If you have a room facing the narrow street you can´t open it due to the constant business going on for the whole night.Yes it´s close to Gran Via but there are hundreds of other hostals on the other side of Gran Via.The...

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
