We arrived early and were very tired from our long plane ride into Spain. Thankfully, the man at this hostal didn't hesitate to check us in and allow us in our reserved room hours before check-in time. My only complaint is the strong smell of lemon-scented wood polish. I'm pretty sensitive to that kind of thing though. Everything else was very lovely, and the price and location was ideal.

We have just returned from a weekend stay in Madrid. The Hostal Armesto was initially a little hard to find - the sign is tiny but the manager/owner was still waiting up for us at 1am after a delayed flight , which we felt very bad about. The location is fantastic but our room was disappointing compared to the reviews I had read in advance. The bed dipped in the middle, the pillows were hard and our feet were out the end of the bed! The noise outside and from the room next door (a gaggle of women) woke us throughout the night but we got used to it the following night. We both agreed that due to location and the friendliness of the guy there (who spoke no English) we liked it, but it is not as fab as some reviews make it out to be. Perhaps the garden/courtyard rooms are better but although we requested one, we didn't receive it, so I can't say. I would prob stay here again but i would only send friends with manageable expectations.

We had booked a room at the Hostal Cervantes, around the corner, but it and the building next door were under extensive rennovation, and our room was intolerable (noise and dust). The Cervantes' brother runs Armesto and he called and got us the perfect room there.

By all means get a room overlooking the interior garden - it was very quiet and the room was charming. There is free WiFi, which we really appreciated, and the owner was extremely helpful in booking our ride to the airport (and then calling again to change it when I realized I had made a mistake on our departure time).

Be sure to have a drink in the rotunda of the Palace Hotel, a couple of minutes away.

We stayed at Hostal Armesto for four days in May. It was a little more posh than I had expected for the price. The reception area is very nicely appointed, as are the rooms. Our bathroom was clean and well-maintained. We had a large closet and a small writing desk.

For the most part it was quiet. The street that runs in front of it is mostly residential, but there is a restaurant across the street and a bar several doors down. The large windows are double glazed I believe, and it really blocked out any street noise that might have been an issue. The only night that was a problem was the night Real Madrid lost the match against Barcelona to decide which team was going on to the European championships. There was some major rowdiness going on down the street from soccer fans (drunken, depressed and angry soccer fans from the losing team I suspect) which neither the thick windows nor ear plugs could totally drown out. BUT, that being said, we didn't have a problem with noise any of the other nights we stayed there. They also have courtyard rooms available. The door to one of the courtyard rooms was open when it was being cleaned after the previous guest had checked out and the courtyard view looked pleasant.

The owner is friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. The lobby is very nicely scented - with what, I'm not sure, but it's a very pleasant smell - but it can be strong at times. I mention this as just a heads up to anyone with sensitve asthma that can be triggered by strongly perfumed scents.

The Prado and Retiro park are a very quick walk (10 mins) from the hotel, as is the Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and other centrally located Madrid attractions. There are also some decent tapas places scattered throughout the neighborhood.

We'll stay again when we return to Madrid.

don't let the exterior fool you, this is a fantastic little hotel!! it is located on the second floor of a building (no elevator thus not accessible to the disabled). the area is pretty quiet; i didn't experience any noise from the street. some rooms face an interior courtyard/garden which is absolutely charming. the rooms/bathrooms are basic but immaculately clean. full western style shower/tub, fresh towels given daily, plenty of storage space, in room safe, television, etc. need to bring your own hair dryer and there's no in-house restaurant, though you can buy soft drinks, i believe, from the attendant at the front desk). even for someone who is regarded as a bit of a travel "princess" this hotel was completely satisfactory. also the staff is incredibly warm and friendly (though not exactly english speaking...bring a spanish phrase book and you'll be fine). it is less than a five minute walk to the prado, the thyssen-bornemisza, a multitude of restaurants, and sevilla metro station (by the way, airport is accessible by public transit....it's about a 20-25 min ride with two line changes), etc. absolutely amazing location at a fantastic price (about 55 euro or $92 canadian per room per night, double occupancy). highly reccomended (unless you're one to spend your entire trip in a hotel instead of touring the city).
