The location of this hotel, for the price, can't be beaten. It's very easy to get to it from the airport by metro, close to 3 stops. The staff there were polite and spoke English which was very helpful. The breakfast was very good; bread, cold meats, cereals and pastries. The biggest drawback is that there is construction work going...

Stayed at this hotel last Augsut for 4 days. 2 metro stations just short distance away from the hotel. Either one takes you to a mainline station and gets you to the airport. You can buy a ticket for 10 journeys plus 1 euro per person airport tax. This ticket can be used by both people travelling!! Hotel just 5...

Very well located hotel and as we were given rooms at the back it was very quiet. It helped that one of our party spoke spanish although i think staff did speak english. The rooms were basic, clean, and good sizes. I would stay there again. At the time of our stay there was work going on inside hotel but...

Having read the previous reviews for this place I was a little apprehensive, though for the price I decided to go ahead with it. The reception staff didnt speak great English (though I found this in most of Madrid) but you got by. The hotel is a little grubby and in need of a facelift. The lifts look like they...

I stayed at the Hotel Alexandra last weekend - Feb 7th to feb 10th. The location is brilliant as it is located just off of Gran Via, right near all the threatres.

Just got back from a four night stay at the Hotel Alexandra. I had booked everything through Easyjet Holidays and seeing as, in my opinion I got an amazing bargain (£140 per person) which included the flight and accommodation, I wasnt really expecting anything much from this hotel, however I was surprised. Reception area was very welcoming. I wasnt put...

I stayed for one night only at the Hotel Alexandra and would probably do again, even though it is slightly on the pricey side for a hotel in this category (2 star). Perhaps if I'd booked online, I might have paid less. In the event, I simply turned up at the hotel without having made a reservation in advance and...

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
