“Basic hotel in Madrid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Stayed here in January for 2 nights at start of a Cosmos tour and again for 2 nights at end of tour. It's a basic hotel with no disabled facilities, even though they advertise that they do. Breakfasts OK, good choice. As it was winter it was warm in rooms but cool in breakfast room. Bus 23 stopped outside hotel which was very convenient. It went straight to Plaza Mayor. Used bus 3 or 4 times to go to La Latina (where my niece lives) and Plaza Mayor once. Various shops in area, supermarket and bakery close. Quite a long way from main sights but can catch bus.

In many ways our stay at the Hotel Praga was as expected - in a good location, close to supermarket and some restaurants, with good bus and subway links (nearest subway stop is Marques de Vadillo) to the main attractions of Madrid.

The en-suite hotel room itself was small but adequate, complete with safety deposit box, TV and mini bar. The room we were staying in did not have the best view in the world, however! We looked out of the window into a narrow shaft with other hotel room windows all around us. Needless to say natural light didn't make it into our room.

The thing that stands out for me most about the hotel was how damn noisy it was!!! It was the cleaning staff that made the most noise early in the morning - clanging about with trolleys and talking very loudly - ironic considering there is a notice on each corridor asking guests to keep the noise down!!!! However, in our room, we kept hearing noises above as though people were moving furniture around above us and this happened in both the morning and the evening. We asked to change rooms - in a bid for a bit of peace and quiet and hopefully some natural light - but were told that the only other available room - in a 420-room hotel in February - was one twin room. Hmmmmm.

If you're sightseeing and not planning to spend a great deal of time in your room then I would say this hotel is fine for that. But expect to be woken up at the crack of dawn by noise, noise, noise!!

We stayed at hotel Praga when we visited Madrid this January, 2012. I wasn't expecting much from the hotel from the reviews I had read on various review sites. But I was pleasantly surprised the hotel was real value for money. The best part about the hotel was the connectivity to the city. We got down at the metro station Marques De Vadillo, just 200 meters away was the bus stop where we got bus no. 23, which dropped us just infront of Hotel Praga. The reception is not a fancy one, but the hotel staff were good and could speak and understand English :) We had booked a double room, which I did find a bit small, but all we wanted the rooms were to spend the night and rest of the day was spent sightseeing, so wasn't much of an issue. The bathrooms were clean, they had a small TV in the room which atleast had CNN rest all were Spanish channels. The breakfast served was also good, they had many options but no baked beans or scrambled eggs which we did get in the hotel we stayed in Barcelona :) Overall I would say value for money, if you are not looking for a fancy hotel and just want one to sleep at night and have a decent breakfast in the morning, you might want to consider staying at Praga.

Had stayed for 3 days. Located on the main street, next to a super market, it is convenient if you are in the city for work or business. For a tourist like me, the train station was a little further than i expected, and it took time to reach the main attractions of the city. The rooms were not very clean, the linen didnt appear fresh. Despite confirmed request for a street facing room, i was given a room that overlooked the drain pipes of the hotel and the neighbouring buildings.
Bathroom was clean and well appointed.
Reception staff was casual and definitely not keen to help who did not speak spanish. If I go back to Madrid, I would try another hotel.
