Hostal Residencia Principado
Ranked #235 of 285 Madrid B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 March 2007

I stayed here Dec 27, 06--Jan 1, 07. I paid a total of roughly 230 USD for my stay that I booked with WHR hotels.
This hostal is located about a 5 minute walk from the Sevilla subway station (red line). I easily walked from my hotel to attractions nearby listed in the previous review for this hostal. The Sol area is an easy 15 minute walk as well.
This place is very hard to find if you first arrive by foot. I walked into a nearby hotel and with the Principado's address, the employees knew how to direct me.
You've got to look for the small sign in the front of the outside door.
There's an elevator you take to the next floor up and the door's to the right upon exiting the elevator. You get a key to that door as well as the one to the door on the street (that was always ajar anyway). My small room had a sink and a shower. I barely could stand in the shower since my flip flops were bigger than the tub part. (Where you stand inside, it's smaller than the ledge you see in my picture being measured by my flip flops!)
The bed was decent and luckily there were blankets in the room's closet since the radiator wasn't the greatest.
The toilet is down the hall in the shared bathroom. There's a more decent sized shower there as well. During my stay, there were maybe 2 other rooms being used so the shared bathroom wasn't a problem. I don't think there's many rooms here anyway.
This is a decent hostal for those looking to save money. If you're the type like me who only needs a room to throw your stuff, sleep, shower, and leave for the whole day to explore, this place will suit you just fine.
The owners/employees were friendly and very helpful. (I don't know how their English speaking skills are since I speak Spanish.)
When I return to Madrid, I'll take this place into consideration.

We stayed at the Hostal Principado two or three times and I have recommended it to others. It is very centrally located for visiting the Prado, the Retiro Park, and other sights. The family that runs it is very helpful. The rooms are incredibly clean, but simply furnished. There is an elevator. If you are the type of traveler who spends most of the time outside of the hotel and requires few support services, the Hostal Principado is for you.
