Great little Hostal just by Puerta del Sol. Close to everything, tour bus passes. Plenty of shops, bars, restaurants. Expected some street noise at night, but was not much. Rooms are lovely and clean, warm and comfy. Recommended.

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

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
