I loved the location in the charming area between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Santa Ana. It´s just perfect. Price was reasonable and good value for a clean and functional room and a good nights sleep. Breakfast was included in a rustic genuine restaurant a few blocks away, simple but sufficient and picturesque. No window and no working WiFi in...

The reviews by others are very much correct and right to the point. The Hostal is truly within a very short distance of a very active Madrid area and the area is lively. I had a single room, it had you needed from a nice bed to good shower facilities, It was not built as a hotel so indeed the...

Ugly from outside, lovely from inside. Vey close to center and rooms are very clean, modern and fully equipped with everything you ll need. Space is just right and receptionist are all very helpful. Only thing is that you hear what is happening in the room next to you the rest it s 5/5.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel. On arrival the reception staff were very friendly and helpful which always puts us in a happy confident mood for our stay. The hotel is very centrally located and within walking distance of all the main sightseeing attractions,restaurants,bars and shops. We stayed in room 219 which was small...

What a little gem - so glad we found it! Tucked away up a side street just off the Puerta del Sol, entry is via a slightly tatty looking staircase, and you could be forgiven for thinking you're in for a disappointment - how wrong you would be! The whole thing looks freshly refurbished - decor is smart and funky,...

It doesn't matter how many times I stay here, I never get bored of the place. Just meeting all the staff again is enough of a reason to come back. They are all so wonderful. location is perfect! Very close to Puerto de Sol square! Good Recommended place! :)

Very convenient but in a seedy neighborhood. Room was large, clean but dark and poorly lit. Almost impossible to read. Staff was very helpful. TV had no English channels. Our room faced the street and noise from cafes and occasional drunks continued to 3-4 in the morning. The hotel is actually on the second floor and required an ancient elevator...

Don't judge the outside! Nice, clean, modern, cozy interior. Nice view of the streets from our balcony. On our first day we walked all the way to Retiro Park. Along the way we saw many of the featured attractions. Very very near to the metro station and lots of shopping to do. I recommend this place!

Was worried booking this hotel as we usually book four stars, but the only draw back was that this hotel was difficult to find as there are two signs for it and it is upstairs. After the initial drama of entering from the old, worn and creaky lobby next door, however, the rest of the stay went smoothly. Small hotel...

I found this hostal on Tripadvisor and booked it for 2 nights in June. It was just a stated, a real find. It was a little hard to find at first because the taxi couldn't go down the street due to the new king being in town. Also it is on the second floor so look up! Once I settled...

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.
