Hostal Gala
Ranked #174 of 437 Hotels in Madrid
Reviewed 26 June 2010

It was fantastic experience at Hostal Gala Madrid. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were modern and very clean! Love the decor! My friend and I especially love the shower - its soo funky and pressure system is great! The location is very convenient - within walking distance to all major attractions! The closest metro stop Santa Domingo ( take Plaza Santa Domingo exit and its only 1 minute walk! Callao is only 3 mins walk away!
It is impossible to get lost in Madrid - its soo easy to walk around.

The hotel is located on the 2nd floor so there are a few flights of stairs to walk up but its nothing to worry about. easy walk.
You get 3 sets of keys. 1 for the front door, 1 for the door to the hotel and 1 for your room.

We loved this hostal! The location was great - just remember when you are exiting the metro at Santo Domingo to take the Plz. Santo Domingo exit and you are right there and it's an easy walk to Sol, Palacio, Gran Via. The receptionists were all friendly and spoke English - which helped. I think we had the best room in the place - there was a little lounge area with a couch, which was nice having some extra space, and there were balconies overlooking the plaza. The shower was tiny, but manageable. Everything was fresh and new. This place was great.

This brand new hostal (opened mid-March 2010) is in a good location, less than one minute's walk from the S Domingo metro station, and a five minute walk from Sol - it's so new, that it still smells of paint (they really need to open the windows and give the rooms an airing). I stayed for three nights. The rooms are clean, smart and modern - but the one I was allocated was very small, with hardly any space around the comfortable bed, and space for only one suitcase on the floor - it was a "double" room, but it would have been unsuitable for two people. The bathroom was tiny, but made the best use of the tiny amount of space available, and the modern shower was excellent. Staff were friendly, helpful, and spoke good English. Problems...very poor soundproofing (including gaps under the doors) and wooden floors means that you hear everyone who walks down the corridor (and some of the rooms are directly off the reception area), and everything said (and done!) in adjacent rooms and in reception - I was woken on two nights by other guests coming back in the early hours, and by a phone ringing in reception. The Wifi is free, but the signal was very poor and unreliable, which made it difficult to use the internet. The badly located motion sensors in the windowless corridor caused the light to go out before I'd managed to get my key in the door. The entrance of the hostal is shared with other residences, and is not clearly marked - it was difficult to find when I arrived in the dark, and at the time of writing, Google Maps lists the wrong address for this hostal - make sure you use the correct address, that is listed on TripAdvisor (at the time of writing, the hostal's web site is "under construction"). I booked it through Expedia, which provided the wrong phone number! Overall, despite its defects, Hostal Gala offers good value for its central Madrid location.
