I stayed in the Hostal Carrera with my family, booking a triple room directly with the hotel.
This is a great hotel, located in the very city center of Madrid, ES. It's a 5 mins walk from Plaza del Sol, where there is the Subway...More
One stays at the Hostal Carrera for three main reasons: 1) the rooms are relatively inexpensive (e.g., 70 Euros per night double occupancy vs. 400+ per night at the Four Seasons), 2) the hostal is in a great location, and 3) the staff are friendly...More
This hotel is in the middle of everything, a few steps from Sol and Sevilla metro, the best area for sightseeing. It's just a plain hotel with clean and big rooms (the triple was very spacious). Don't expect anything fancy. Good for it's price.
Just come back from a fantastic weekend in Madird. Hostal Carrera was slap bang in the centre, very reasonable, fantstic shower, fully functional air conditioning and 24 hour receptionist. Couldn't have asked for any more, outstanding value for money.
Great place to stay in the heart of Madrid. Walking distance to the museums and palace. Very quiet with a friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are comfortable and clean with modern bathrooms, TV and air conditioning. We did however have a problem with our reservation....More
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.
