We need a great cheap safe clean hostel for family of 4 pls!

I need suggestions for a cheap but quaint and cosy hotel/hostel for my family of four in central Madrid please. Nothing fancy just clean and friendly. Also, needs to be easy to get to hotel as my kids (8 and 10) will be carrying their own luggage. Thanks

I guess the first questions would be what exactly is your budget? The second is when are you planning on being in Madrid? It would help.

Under 100eu would be great, central location to major sights or plazas, we will be there end of December for 4 days and then try to go south to Cordoba before New Years Eve so we don't have to travel on a public holiday.

Would you believe that the #1 rated hotel on the TA Madrid Hotel section is the Hostal Acapulco which has doubles at 57E? Read the reviews and see if this fits your interests, but if it has that kind of rating it must be do a few things right.

Hi!

I can warmly recommend Hostal Bianco II at Calle de Echegaray, very close to most tourist sites, between metro Stations Sol and Sevilla. There were 3 of us who stayed there, paid 55 EUR for a triple. Check their website at www.hostalbianco.com

It¨s a nice decent hostal and we would definitely stay there the next time we visit beautiful Madrid. We walked everywhere! The only not so positive thing about this hostal is the thin walls, but for this price and the location, it's worth it!

Good luck!

I've stayed at Hostal Astoria and highly recommend it.

It's right next to Puerta del Sol. Walking distance to bus, taxi and metro stops.

The website doesn't show a quad room, but when I went I stayed in a room that had 2 single beds and 1 double bed. It was roomy and we paid about 70 euros a night for the room.

It's located on the 5th floor of a 19th century building. There is a lift so no worry about the kids walking up long flights of stairs with their luggage.

It's very clean, safe and comfortable - best thing is the price and location.

On the ground floor there is a bakery (the smell that it gives off is amazingly wonderfull) and down the street there is a cafe, which is great for breakfast.

These are all great options, I will look at them all, and here I was thinking that Spain was going to be too expensive. Thanks and keep the suggestions coming they are great.
