We stayed at the Hotel Sterling from Feb 1-4 and can say that we would not return or recommend to others. One great thing was we arrived early and a room was ready, the staff who was working was pleasant.

Entrance to hotel had a strange smell and this was in the hotel room also. Not an over powering smell, but not a nice one either.
Didn't have breakfast so cant comment.
Parking is a nightmare and had to pay 20 euros for overnight. But...More
Friends of ours stayed in this central hotel and were very happy with the deal. They said it was great value for money and would not hesitate in returning. The room was large, clean and bright despite having an interior view.
Definitely recommend this hotel. Walking distance to just about all of the highlights of historical Madrid. Comfortable beds! Typical European breakfast with very good coffee. Front desk staff very helpful. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
It's quiet a long way you will need to get a taxi and it's a fixed fee for taxis from station of €20 but the cost of the fare is actually less but that's what they charge. Alternatively there is a metro service at a fraction... More
It's quiet a long way you will need to get a taxi and it's a fixed fee for taxis from station of €20 but the cost of the fare is actually less but that's what they charge. Alternatively there is a metro service at a fraction the cost but this was closed when we arrived.
