I booked this thinking it was an hotel but it is not, is an hostal
the receptionist is just from time to time here, the location is very good, but the bed, room, reception all was from an hostal so I was kinda dissapointed
I travelled to Madrid for 2 nights with my husband between Christmas and New Year. We picked El Pasaje because we wanted to be near the Old Town and heard the location was good (as was the price). The hotel was surprisingly clean and had...More
This hotel is located in the city center (near the main streets and subway station) which is very convenient if you don't want to lose time in transport.
However, it also means it is quite loud because of the bars and restaurants nearby (the hotel...More
If you are in Madrid to party hard, this place is the perfect crash pad! We on the other hand....we were there to be close to museums and good food and the flavor of it all. It was a clean room with a nice closet...More
The hostal is situated in the very center of Madrid, just steps away from Sol or the major museums and sights. The rooms are small, but nice and comfortable. The only minus points are the noise from the street, if your room is located on...More
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 collection of plazas interconnected by a network of 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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

Think we had inquired with hotel if they supplied car service to their hotel. Guess they did not, because we did take a cab right outside airport, believe we were told to use the green and white cabs recommended by Fodor's books. Think it cost around 20 euros for both of us. They had no trouble finding the hotel, cabs were all familiar with it.
Hope that helps, have good trip
Hi We took a taxi from the station. However, when we left we took a taxi to the airport and I believe it was only 25 minutes. Although it will depend on the traffic. The taxi cannot go into the street as it's very narrow... More
Hi We took a taxi from the station. However, when we left we took a taxi to the airport and I believe it was only 25 minutes. Although it will depend on the traffic. The taxi cannot go into the street as it's very narrow but we managed OK with 2 cases each. Enjoy it is a lovely hotel. If you have dinner of the day at the reccomended restaurant you get a free bottle of wine.
