The hostal is super clean - they changed all my towels each day and tidy up the room, even putting my shoes and slippers in order :) My room was quiet, the furniture basic but comfortable - enough drawers to put my stuff and a lot of hangers in the wardrobe. The location is perfect - the three major museums...

This is our 2nd time to stay - see review Sept 15 - so there is little more I can add other than to say - it was as good to stay 2nd time around! We were there for a week along with Canadian cousin & his wife & they both loved it too. Wouldnt dream of staying anywhere else...

The room was clean and plenty big for us. Had everything we needed. The location was superb! Maybe 3 blocks from the Prado. A 10 minute walk to a multitude of fine restaurants and the Plaza de Mayor. Javier, his twin brother and their mother were warm and friendly. Couldn't have been happier. Highly recommend it to anyone who is...

We have been to Madrid several times, first time for this hostal. The reviews are accurate! Its owners Javier and Antonio are welcoming and helpful (and speak a good amount of English if that is an issue). Our room was not luxurious but quite nice. The location is great (proximity to museums etc.). What we would add is that Hostal...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The owners/staff were really friendly. The hotel is on the third floor served by stairs and a lift, the rooms were clean had A/C, wifi and our room had a small balcony which was nice, there were wooden shutters aswell which blocked out daylight in the morning meaning we had a good lay in...

Fortunate to be returning to Madrid, I immediately reserved my room at Hostal Gonzalo as I had had such a positive experience staying there last year. I really can't add any more positives about this place than already mentioned in other reviews. Stay here to rest at the end of a day of sightseeing and exploration. Javier, Antonio and staff...

Another charming Spanish Hostal run by charming man who is always willing to help. If you stay in this place don't buy a metro ticket. Not needed for the usual locales. The rooms are spacious. The bed comfortable. Everything is clean and tidy. It has no laundry service. However at the end of the street is a place that will...

I loved Hostal Gonzalo from the first sight! Hostal is situated in the 19th century building with an old elevator (which sometimes does not work!). The owner is very friendly, I should say cordial and always ready to help you, so you have an impression that you are staying with your old friends or even relatives. The room is rather...

We stayed 3 nights at Hostal Gonzalo. It was in a great location within walking distance to the Prado and many other sites. It was also a short easy walk to the train station. We were allowed to pick between a room on the front with a balcony or a room in the back. We enjoyed the balcony, but it...

In the past month, I stayed at the Hostal Gonzalo twice and cannot recall having had a more conveniently situated, friendlier, cleaner place to spend the night in a city. As an art-and-culture-loving traveller, I am not interested in my lodging having swimming pools and fancy restaurants - I want a comfy place to rest up between jaunts throughout the...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
