First of all, something positive, the location is VERY GOOD.
However, it’s really really noisy but as you might choose this hotel because you want to party and enjoy Madrid it shouldn’t be a problem. The worst thing you will have to deal is the...More
We enjoyed our 3-nights stay at Hostal Oliver. We had a big room with our private bathroom (even a fridge & a microwave but this is not available in every room). The location is fantastic and there are great restaurants nearby. It's easy to walk...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.
