“Low Cost, Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This is a great hotel situated just off Sol, so the street is quiet but you're right next to all the action and shopping. The rooms are small but a kindy funky. The only issue is the shower, you need to slide into it as there isn't a lot of room. Def recommend and would probably stay there again.

My girlfriend and I checked in separately into this hotel and we had no issues doing so. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and always did their best to answer our questions. We had a small problem with the shower and it was fixed right away.
The rooms are spotless, neatly decorated and the aircon works very well (super important in Madrid during summer)
The location near Puerta del Sol is quite convenient, both to travel out of Madrid and to move within it.
Would highly recommend.

Great price, great rooms, clean, phenomenal location. I booked this place twice, and the second time they gave us a free upgrade from a 1 bedroom with three beds to a three bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms. The hostel and Madrid were lovely.

When I was booking my room at Hostal Madrid, I was looking for a hostal that had private bathrooms close to city center. This hostal was clean, safe, and had everything I needed! Wifi was in the lobby and in the room and worked well, although a little slow for streaming video. I was just glad to have free wifi in the room at this price. There wasn't a problem with noise as I had an inside room and though the bathroom was tiny - it was private! You are right next to a little convenience store and two blocks from Plaza Mayor. The SOL train station is close and there are shopping and cafes everywhere. The room was perfect and the price was only a few dollars more than sharing a room with 10 other people. The noise from other guests was comparable to other hotels I've stayed in. If you want an inexpensive room that is clean and close to everything, this is it. Esmeralda and Luis were wonderful and when I asked about taxi's Esmeralda was on the phone ordering one before I could even tell her the time I needed it. There is a flat screen tv in the room also but you'll be out more than in. Taxi from Madrid Atocha train station was only 11 Euros. I highly recommend Hostal Madrid! I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, book a double for a larger bathroom. Although it was ok for me (and I'm 5...

Hostal Madrid has apartments although they do not directly advertise them on their website. Just email them and ask for an apartment. They are a great value!! We got an apartment for three people with a terrace (!) for 78 euros per night. Plenty of room to spread out. You could not ask for a better location. The rooms were clean, clean, clean. Fully equipped. The folks at the desk of Hostal Madrid were kind and consistently helpful --offering their English when they could. The only glitch was that the wifi didn't really work in the room. We had to go down to the lobby for it to work.

The apartments are not a fancy hotel; don't expect luxury. They are basic, but not in any way deficient. They give you a feel for how Europeans really live. I would absolutely stay here again next time I am in Madrid.

Room Tip: Pay a couple dollars extra and get an apartment with a terrace if you can. You can do your laundry...

This hotel is located directly in the center of the city and is surprisingly quiet. The internet did not work in my room at all. The staff was sympathetic though and it was not at all their fault. They shared with me the wifi in the lobby which worked well. For the price you pay this place is very good.
