“Location great, but a 2 star at most”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

The location is fantastic, very close to the galleries, Retiro Park, Plaza Santa Anna. Room clean, dated, but fine for a cheap and comfortable sleep. The 'balcony' was completely taken up by the air conditioner, could not even stand on it. The shower head was broken. There are no facilities downstairs - no lobby area, bar, dining room - so this is more like a two star lodging than a 3 star hotel. If you want a clean cheap sleep in a great location and like us will be in the hotel only to sleep, this is fine. If you want a place to hang out at all, it is not so good.

Room Tip: Although this is on a side street, Madrid is always noisy, so bring ear plugs if taking a street fac...

I have been staying at the Hotel Residencia Lisboa since 2000. It is the perfect place to stay in Madrid. Just a few steps from Plaza Sant'Ana, in the middle of the night scene of Madrid. Less than a mile to Plaza Mayor even closer to the Prado. The rooms are clean. They have just installed new bathroom hardware. The staff is friendly and helpful. The draw back is the noise from the street if you get a room with a view. The other rooms look out at air shafts or the back of the elevator shaft. I've had them all. But who stays in their room in Madrid. It is a great value and better location. Cab drivers can never find it because Ventura de la Vega is only a block long.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the noise ask for a room on the street side.

So, let me firstly say that as far as places to stay goes, this place was fine but my experience with the old doorman tarnished this place for me. I was in Madrid, visiting some old friends and decided to stay near the center. The plan was to go out, meet up with a few buddies, have a few drinks and see where the night went and I did all that and more. A friend of mine who I hadn't seen in a few months came out to meet me. We bar hopped with a few other friends and as one thing led to another we renewed our old friendship and I decided it was time to take her back to my exotic suite in Hostel Lisboa where I had sparred no expense for the lavish room. Upon arrival to the door I was greeted by a small angry looking Spanish chap who met me with the customary "DIME!!!!". So I told him the number and he looked at my very respectably dressed girlfriend and said in his charming Spanish tone 'y elle?' So I said, she's with me to which he responded in spanish saying, 'with her, you don't go up!' Cockblocked by the angry doorman!!!! Couldnt believe it! Just because he wasnt getting any, we weren't getting any either. I would have asked for my money back but I was out of option and she lived well outside the city so a walk to Cibeles was in order to make sure she caught her bus and then back to the Hostel to meet my favorite dumbo doorman friend.
This place was a real exercise in patience. Highly unrecommended if you want to have some fun in the city

Hotel Lisboa could use some redecorating and some renovation, but it sits in a great location and is very comfy for the price. Hotel staff is a bit reserved but quite knowledgeable and will help if requested. Little had changed from when we previously stayed there in 2006, but that was a good thing in many respects. When vacationing, we look for accommodations that are clean, well located, and safe, then we spend our time sightseeing. If this sounds like you too, Hotel Lisboa should be a consideration. One more thing...check out the nearby Maceiras for a fun and tasty tapas experience, but plan for a wait if you don't arrive early. Google "Maceiras Madrid" for restaurant reviews.

Room Tip: If you're affected by street noise, ask for a room that is on the inside of the hotel.

Great location on a quiet street, not far from Plaza Sol and Plaza Santa Ana. Fifteen restaurants representing about nine different cuisines are within a few steps of the hotel. Room and bathroom were clean, bed comfortable (if a little short). Loud neighbors were a bother, but the concierge was helpful in contacting them. WiFi didn't reach my room but was fine at the reception. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

FROM THE airport we took the yelow T bus to PLAYA CIBELIS it costs 2 euro each way. 30 mins best deal . hotel is 10 min walk away
Accomodation in Madrid is expensive - you can pay a lot more for a lot less!
clean rooms , comfortable beds, lots of hangers in the wardrobes , tv and all about 5 mins away from wherever you want to be.
The reception area is small, no bar , 1 euro coffee machine , 1 euro 1/2 hr internet or FREE wi fi !! latest password 'apolo'
cant fault this hostel/hotel at all great value and the owner speaks excellent english and is very helpfull as all the staff are but others have limited english but still very helpfull.
Even shared room hostels are about 30-35e in Madrid .finally remember there are no sea views so dont bother with a room with a view ! IT WILL BE NOISEY its Madrid - like trying to sleep near Trafalger Square!
wE HAD A ROOM AT THE REAR of the hotel our view was lots of Air con units on te back walls - but we slept well every night.

Great location for seeing all of the major sites in Madrid. Located on a fairly quiet street in a safe area, it's an easy walk to la Plaza Mayor, Museo del Prado, etc. The building is typical of Spanish hostales, it's older but kept clean. Pilar, the housekeeper, es muy simpática. The elevator goes to the 3rd floor, if you're on the 4th you have to take the creaky stairs. My room was on the street with a balcony. I didn't have problems with street noise, but I suggest earplugs for any place in downtown Madrid. Quadruple 89,00€, triple 75,00€, double 59,00€ and single 42,00€,All rooms have complete bath, ,tv, phone, AC, (visitors may not realize that in many of these places, the AC is operated with a remote control) and tax (iva) included. Enjoyable stay.
