Hotel Persal
Ranked #122 of 440 Hotels in Madrid
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2014

You really can't ask for a better location. The Hostal is located at Plaza de Angel around the corner from Plaza Santa Ana. The area is very nice and you can enjoy sitting outdoors at one of the many cafes. Having said that, Hostal Persal is just about as centric as you are going to get in Madrid and you can go anywhere in just a few minutes. It is close to Plaza del Sol, Gran Via, Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum, the Atocha train station and even El Retiro Park. The staff was very pleasant, bilingual and the service was excellent. The room is indeed very basic and on the small side for sure but it was very clean. Another reviewer commented on having a hard bed but mine was quite comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay there again. If you are traveling on a budget or enjoy a good bargain, all things considered, you will be hard pressed to find a better deal.

This place is located on Plaza de Angel. Close to Plaza Santa Ana, in the middle of Madrid. You will be close to almost anything. A small walk from the metro stations of Anton Martin or Plaza Puerta del Sol this is really in the thick of things.


A little old and in some need of updating this is still a decent hotel, nice bed, although the bathroom and shower in my single room was abit on the smaller side of things.

PERFECT LOCATION. Staff very nice and are bilingual. Had a room issue and they moved me with no problem. Hotel is a NON SMOKING HOTEL!!!! They do have breakfast for 8 euro (bit high for breakfast) you can go down the block for much cheaper. My only complaint with this hotel are the beds. they are ROCK HARD. both rooms. Very very clean. No carpet, Wood flooring instead better option! Bathrooms are very clean and nice size. I will stay there again

Helpful hint: YES you can get to the hotel from the airport via metro. You will take Aeropurerto (L8) to L10 Nuevos Ministerios then L1 from tribunal to SOL. very easy.

I would have given this hotel a 5 if it wasn't for the rock hard beds~

The hostal is in a great location within easy walking distance of the Sol metro and museums.
Simple clean accommodation and friendly helpful staff. Rooms at the back of the hostal don't have a view but are quieter. Prices are very reasonable for a capital city. The air conditioning is good.

Room Tip: Internal rooms are quieter but a bit dark.

Excellent location just off SOL with a multitude of cafés and restaurants in walking distance.free wi-fi and a free safe in the room was a great plus .Breakfast a little basic but more than adequate .Staff friendly, efficient and very willing to share their local knowledge .The room,with an excellent shower ,was cleaned daily so a good value venue for a city break .Would definitely use again .

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a balcony overlooking square - but these can be noisier ,especially at weekends...

Located on a lively plaza, lots of restaurants nearby, easy walk to museums, Retiro park, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and many other attractions. Clean room, nice bed and towels. Double windows block noise from plaza when (or if!) you want to sleep. Friendly, helpful staff. Next time we visit this fabulous city, we will definitely stay at Hostal Persal!
