I missed my flight and knocked on the door after 2300 and was given a room for the night. Its more like a small hotel rather than a hostel. I got a large bed with towels ,toliet and showers, and a side room overlooking a small passage. Cruz Sol is less than 20 seconds from Plaza Mayor and 2 minutes...

Room is clean and nice.They have everything that we needed. Hotel near SOL station, walk just 5 mins.Easily to take tram to visit many places. Especially shopping mall around SOL. Staff speak english well and willing to help. I stay for 2 nights for holiday, my room without breakfast. Worst for the price. I definitely recommend.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this facility. It is clean and comes with fast Wi-Fi, cold AC, cable TV and is wonderfully located. We stayed in 2009 and 2010 and stayed a few nights this trip. And the price is incredible. My family loves it.

I had a room overlooking the Plaza de Santa Cruz. The room had two balconies and a bathroom. I paid around €40 for a single. The WIFI was not amazing and someone in the nearby room had their TV on quite loudly one evening. But the aircon worked well and the room was cleaned daily. Very friendly staff some of...

This is my second visit and I will certainly stay here next time. The hostel is located 5 minutes from Sol metro station and seconds away from Plaza Mayor. I paid 30 euros for a room with a view over a square with my own toilet and shower. The summer price is 35 euros. There are also economy rooms for...

This cozy, warm and friendly hostel is a block away from Plaza Mayor, a few blocks away from Puerta del Sol and just in front of Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores, a beautiful building you will love. It is surrounded by interesting little stores with cloths, crafts, wine, and whatever you could need during your vacations. There are several bars or...

If you want to stay close to the center of Madrid and all of the major sites/attractions, this is the best location and hotel for the money. The hotel looks questionable from the outside but once you are in, the rooms are nice, modern and clean, the windows are double-pane (which really helps since the hotel faces a busy square)...

A great little hostel in a fantastic location between Sol and the Plaza Mayor. We stayed in two different rooms at the beginning and end of our trip. The first room was at the back and although small was comfortable with a good shower. The second room was on the other side of the hotel and was quite noisy throughout...

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.

“If you like to enjoy the view, ask for one of the rooms facing Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores, or Cruz Square (Plaza de la Cruz). You can book online in English.”

“Ask for a room overlooking the plaza..If travelling in threes ask for 308.. it will give you 3 beds and a fab view!!! do not take another room ..esp the cheaper one they have at the back next to the store cupboard. it is windowless and stuffy..and no view at all.They also change the towels each day if you request them to .Take care not to lose your swipe card..getting them to understand and then replace it is quite an impossible task!!!”
