“Another great visit!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed in HRC for a 5th time and will be back for a 6th. The staff were helpful and friendly and the local tapas bars (which there are many within 5 minutes walking) did not fail to impress with their food. I had a balcony room which overlooked the Basilica which was handy as I travelled with my son this time and he was happy to sit in the sun on the balcony using the WiFi. They even put 6 cans of Mahou in the room's fridge on request so I had a cold beer on arrival.

Judging by the photos we were expecting a room that was bigger and more comfortable. The bathroom was small and badly renovated. Not really worth three stars in our opinion, but then again, the star rating is totally different in Southern Europe than it is the Northern Europe. The staff were very frendly though, we do keep a good memory of the hotel although we will most probbably not be back due to the rooms.

There are so many negatives to this hotel-dodgy neighborhood, miniscule room, bed advertised as king but no larger than a double, cheap finishes, tiny elevator, shower holder broken, no plugs for charging electronics, one of us had a view of industrial piping, embarrassing choice. Don't stay here if you want a decent accommodation.

Room Tip: If you have to stay at HRC Hotel, get a room facing the street, which holds its own problems (mainly...

This is my second time at HRC, which is already a hint to my thoughts. Great location on the edge of La Latina. This means you are on the doorstep of great nightlife buzz ( but not immediately on top of it) and a brief walk to the sights of Plaza Mayor, Sol etc.

The rooms are smallish, but well appointed , very clean, recently renovated by the looks of it, and have, the now compulsory, WiFi. ( how did Hemingway get by without it? )

The service is fantastic, very genuine, helpful and courteous. (On both occasions. This time, especially from Carlos )

Breakfast in the cafe is great. A freshly squeezed zumo, con Leche and croissant for under 5€ did the job each morning.

Definitely my Madrid base!

Dear Guest,

Thanks a lot for your positive review and your nice to words concerning your experience on about our Hotel.
Thank you also for aprreciating our central location in Madrid. All the historic city is about 10 minutes walking from the hotel. We have 2 metro stations just 2 blocks away.

As you say, our aim is to have all our building clean and our staff ready to give the best attention to our guests.

We hope to have you one more time with us.

Kind regards.

This is a basic but good budget accomodation option for Madrid. Don't expect much in the way of looks and extras, but it is all good enough for a better price than other options in the area. It is a short walking distance from the old city centre (Plaza Mayor) which we found better because you could easily walk it but it is not as busy and noisy. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. The breakfast was basic but sufficient for us. We felt it was worthwhile to get the fifth floor room with the terrace - it was a nice way to end the evening.

Room Tip: Fifth floor room with a terrace recommended

Went on a short getaway to Madrid and stayed at the HRC. Great location as everything is located next to you. You can walk to the Royal palace and a lot of the attractions are 10' away.
Plaza Major is quite close(15 mins) and a nice walk there. Best feature of our room was the great view from the terrace which made every morning enjoyable right from the start. Receptionist named Carlos was a great help with a friendly smile and knowledgable. Overall the staff were friendly and our stay was great.

I stayed there a few days ago. Rooms are nice and tidy, but it´s very noisy, as it´s a place to go out for young people. Anyway it´s close to the centre, so you can go to the royal palace or la puerta de Toledo if you want to. Very nice place indeed

Room Tip: some of the rooms have good views to san francisco el grande cathedral
