We stayed for 7 nights in April. The hotel is in a central location with good access to Metro and bus routes. It is only around 10-15 mins from the Royal Palace, Opera and La Latina areas - all walkable distances. The rooms are a decent size - we were in 212 -at the back of the hotel, looking out...

Very nice, modern hotel in the centre of Madrid that is a gem in this bustling city. Walking distance to most major sights. Rooms are good size and quiet. Breakfast is available and is value for money for the variety offered. The hotel staff were very helpful.

The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from the Santo Domingo metro station. Very clean hotel and the staff are very friendly. Our room was a family room which was very spacious and was street facing but I didn't notice as there was hardly any noise. We did not have breakfast at the hotel as I had read previous...

We stayed at the Hotel Sterling for two nights in February. The rooms (one double, one twin) were both modern and clean, with good sized bathrooms. The beds were comfortable; the linen and towels were clean and fresh. Both rooms had balconies with outdoor furniture, which was a nice touch. No facilities to make tea or coffee, but that's not...

We stayed in a three bedded room at the Sterling Hotel. We found the room ample in size and very clean with shower gel and shampoo together with a hairdryer. There was a mini bar together with a few snacks which we didn't use at all, but handy to have a fridge during the hotter months. The only down side...

We stayed at the Sterling as part of a two day trip to see Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Three star, well appointed in the theatre area of the city and very close to two Metro stations (which you'll need as the city is huge!). The neighbourhood had a number of 'Saunas' near the hotel but we felt perfectly safe,...

Booked this hotel cheap and cheerful. Room and bathroom spotlessly clean. Not a great view from our window but not an issue as we were only in the room to sleep. All hotel staff were curtious friendly and hotel is ideally located for exploring this beautiful city. Breakfast was fine. Typical continental. Nothing to get excited about but got what...

This hotel was the best. Great location! so close to Gran via and the subway in order to get around Madrid. Everything is so close, loads of food places, smoothie places, a variety of all the foods you could think of, starbucks and millions of shops! The subway was easy to get to and easy to understand if you can...

I stay here just now. Good location near Gran Via and nice staff, but very noisy (thin walls and slamming doors) and poor breakfast (no eggs, no yoghurt) Not up to my expectations considering the price.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
