The Posada del León de Oro is located right on Cava Baja. It is a street full of small bars which might cater more to the night life traveler. The hotel itself is very good. It has three floors and about 16 rooms. We reserved a Family Room which was perfect for our three member family. It was good size room. But the rooms open up to the downstairs restaurant/bar. Hence at night, it can get rather noisy. With that said, even we travelled as a family, we were comfortable here. But if you’re a light sleeper, this place may not be for you.

The hotel is well located by Plaza Mayor and Puerta Del Sol shopping area. Across the street is actually a highly rated small tapa restaurant, La Concha that is worth a stop.

Room Tip: Higher up floors will be less noisy

This was a really disappointing experience. The room is VERY small/cramped. The shower barely was able to fit me let alone my husband (about 6foot, 80kg). The bed looked so comfortable but was not, the doona was some kind of synthetic that made it very hot and we had to have the air-con on all night at about 20degrees to be able to sleep. Felt like a bull in a china shop. Also, this is above the restaurant/bar and at night can be very loud if you are a light sleeper like my husband is - because of the way the houses are built with a lightwell through the middle of the building sound does travel up. Location was good - about a 10min walk to the Market which had a great mix of different eating options. Plus lots of restaurants only a 5-10min walk away.

Just arrived back from 4 nights in this hotel and all I can say is you can't fault it. Full of ambience and energy, staff very friendly, rooms modern and clean, restaurant and bar very good. Very impressed.

Stayed 10-12 December 2013 - staff very friendly, rooms clean and modern - the restaurant is very good with very typical well cooked dishes. Lunch time you need to book as well used by local people, which says it all! The tapas in the bar are good as well as is the wine list. A buzzy, vibrant and friendly place to base for a trip to Madrid. The local in door food market, in walking distance, is a must if you are a foodie.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite - my only minor criticism would be that some of the rooms could be a touch small.

...but fantastic!
Stopped here here on a whirlwind through Madrid on a nice evening for tapas y vino.
Very nice food - despite some of the comments noted - and a good selection of vino and beers in the front-bar.
Would come back...and might even overnight sometime.
Neighbourhood also attractive; Cava Baja - the street - is a hotspot for locals for eating, drinking and the inevitable socialising.
