Hotel's Favourite
The host and staff are superb - warm, welcoming, super helpful and friendly. The place is central, quiet and stupendously clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the host and staff - whether the question was about where to eat, taxi prices, directions, how to open & close the blinds - more than once! We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

The location is only a 10 minute walk from Atocha railway station so it is convenient for intercity trains, a day trip to Toledo, and the bus to the airport. An added bonus is that it is so close to the Prado and Reina Sofia – I hadn’t planned to go to these museums on this trip but they are so close I dropped in at the end of the day when admission was free. The room itself was good, no issues. Wi-fi was good. The staff were helpful. This was my second stay at Hostal Barrera – repeat business is the ultimate recommendation.

The hostal has a great location - it’s located 12 minutes walking distance from the Atocha train station and near the museum triangle . It’s not far from plaza mayor . The it’s between two metro station making the city access easy . If you want to go to Barcelona or Toledo by train you have to catch the train from Atocha station . It has clean rooms and a nice shower. The reception desk is 24*7 and helpful .It is located The only thing irritating was that to use the safe one has to pay one euro - well in the city with so many pickpockets the Hostal can provide this facility free of charge .

One could not ask for a better location, within blocks of the Reina Sophia, and Atocha Train Station. A mere .6 miles to Plaza Major. Staff is delightful and knowlegable. Room is small, clean and just what I needed, for the price a great deal.

The hostal is clean, quiet and perfectly located near the train station and walking distance to major attractions . The staff is super friendly. They happily kept my luggage after check-out and allowed me to use the restroom when I came back to pick my stuff. They conveniently have a minibar with reasonable prices. I stayed there for 2 nights. Would go again when in Madrid.
