I'm giving this hotel 4 stars because of where it is, not what it is. And I should say that this review is badly out of date since I haven't been there in 13 years so much may have changed. I read from more recent reviews that it still doesn't have air conditioning so it's not a good option for...

We arrived at our hotel after a long trip and were looking forward to relaxing. Immediatley, we were surprised by the fact it was a hostel, not a hotel as advertised. Regardless, we went in and had our evening emal straight away. The food was decent, although hardly up to restaurant standard. We then progressed to our rooms. We were...

The hostel is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from bars, restaurants, shops and nightclubs. The nearest Metro station is just two minutes away and is the Sol Station stop. I arrived at the hostel with a group of friends and I found the reception staff to be quite rude and unhelpful. The rooms are small and...

After reading reviews of this hostal, I was really worried that it was goin to be awful!!... The location could not have been any better, in fact we discovered that the best places to eat and drink we're right on this street. Room sizes are ok, our room had a separate bed/bathroom area, which was ok. Usual small bathrooms, shower...

We only wanted a place to sleep for one night in Madrid, so weren't expecting too much. The rooms were very small, but clean enough and the beds were comfortable. However, the street outside was very very very noisy - until around 5.30am. It was hot, so uncomfortable with the window closed - they weren't sound-proofed anyway. Breakfast was OK....

My fiance and I stayed in this hostel ( not hotel as advertised on the website we booked through) for 3 nights.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
