I've been to this hotel twice and found it a comfortable solution to discover Madrid. The rooms are pretty old and can be a bit cold in winter, but I think the solution is really acceptable if you want spend little money and plan on staying out all day visiting Madrid. The hotel is close to Plaza Santa Ana and...

The location is great. Located near Puerta del Sol. A good place to explore the city. All the main attraction are within walking distance from the hotel,or else there is a metro station about 200 meters away. The only bad thing about this hotel is the sound isolation. You can hear everything that's going on in the hotel. Otherwise the...

Central location, free WIFI in communal area, good place to start looking around on foot. It'sgood for one or two night, But it's really lousy, In your room you can heard was say and do the roomate. And it's difficult to comunicate with the receptionists which speak only spanish.

Room in poor state of decoration, broken light fitting. When we got there they told us the air conditioning was 5 euros per day though on the booking website it was advertised as included. WiFi in communal areas only. Don't be deceived by the front of the building, which is beautiful.

Central location, free WIFI, good place to start looking around on foot and find another central place for probably a slightly higher price and stay there for several days.

The place is very accessible to metro station, near the major palaces and museum. I like the place because it's neat and clean. The staff are very friendly like Maria and David Moses. During my stay, the communal wash room/toilet is under construction in the second floor, so i used the 3rd floor - and it's clean and neat. Just...

No ventilation, can't open the window to the alley because it smells like rotten fish. Room is dark and gloomy. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room is otherwise clean. Good location, but I would never suggest anyone stay here.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
