My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights while we were in Madrid. Since this is a no frills hostel, my expectations were very low, but I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff, the clean accommodations and the free Wi-fi. The...More
Just next to the Sol train/metro exit. When you go in the door and get in the lift, there is no sign to indicate which floor the hotel is at. Receptionist doesn't speak much english. The room is small but enough for a sleep. Despite...More

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.
