Hostal Oporto
Ranked #337 of 438 Hotels in Madrid
Reviewed 7 October 2011

The Good: The Hostal Oporto has one of the best locations I have ever seen in a big city. Its located across the street from the parliament buildings, which are only 4 blocks from Puerto del Sol. About as safe and secure as possible. there is a police presence 24/7. The rooms are a decent size and are cleaned every day. The hostess, M. Antoinetta, is very accommodating. It has free WiFi.

The Bad: Worst beds ever. do what ever you can to avoid the double beds. The walls are tissue paper. You can hear a pin drop down the hall. The pipes are loud as hell. Meaning that you are able to hear bowel movements and showers for everybody above and around you.

Conclusion: As long as you are leaving early and sleeping late, you should have no problems. The location and value are incredible. Its hands down the most secure and safe location I have ever seen. right in the heart of downtown Madrid.

This is probably the best quality/price ratio hotel I have ever stayed. The rooms are very simple (as expected for this kind of hostels) but very very clean, including the small bathroom.
The location couldn't be better: you are n the city's heart - walk to the main museums during the day and to the craziest bars during the night! If you are not totally sure what to do, then just ask to the friendly staff or look up Madrid's online agenda with the free unlimited WIFI.

Just a short stroll to the Prado and the metro. The Sevilla metro was closed for repair, but Sol is just a few extra minutes to walk. Th room is rather small and dark but as we only used it for sleeping it wasnt a big deal. The ensuite bathroom is adequate and everything is clean and well maintained.
A safe is provided, but it costs 1 Euro each time you need to access it. Not a big deal for us either as we just left passports and unneeded cash. Free WIFI available.
Maria Antoinette is very friendly and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hostal.

The hostal was excellent. It is located behind the Camara de los Deputados, 15 minuts to Chueca. Very clean and personnel increadibly nice and indulgent with people arriving in the middle of the night very happy sometimes.

have just got back from 4 nights in the Oporto. it is a brilliant hotel for the price. its location is difficult to beat. easy walking to most things and 5 mins to metro seville. the hotel is very clean. the staff were very friendly and helpful. the rooms are not large but if thats what you want in the centre of madrid you will pay more. that said for us we only slept in them and showered and changed they were fine. the showers were good even if the shower room was small and cramped.

all in all if your looking for a budget hotel in the middle of madrid then chances are you will find it difficult to better this.

A convenient, central, no-frills stay in Madrid--a quick walk to the Sol plaza and metro stop, just steps to the Thyssen-B, and easily walkable to everywhere else in central Madrid. Felt very safe in the area, Wi-Fi worked great, and staff were courteous and efficient.
I asked for a quieter room and got one in the back--no street noise to speak of but a little noise from neighboring rooms.The room and bathroom were basic and small, but kept quite clean. The water pressure and hot water were great, but the shower itself was a very small--a little raised square dais with shower curtain on two sides--really hard to keep water from getting all over the bathroom even for a petite female.

I have stayed at Hostal Oporto maybe four times over a dozen years, and have always been very pleased. The staff is warm and friendly. The simple rooms have hot showers, large comfortable beds, and strong wifi. The neighborhood is quiet but central: just a block from the Paseo del Prado and Museo Thyssen but tucked away on a sidestreet that gets little noise. For those who want nightlife, the Chueca district is a 10-minute walk (but Hostal Oporto is in a more comfortable neighborhood than Chueca). And the price, 35 euros for a single, cannot be beat. There's even a vegetarian restaurant right next door.
