Hostal Cruz Sol
Ranked #288 of 438 Hotels in Madrid
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We stayed here after reading reviews on trip advisor and hostel bookers.

Hotel is in a great location, 2 mins to Metro station and shops/bars

Located on the 3rd floor, the rooms are clean and comfortable. We had a ensuit so there was extra privacy - the bathroom was a little small but done the job. Hair dryer in the bathroom.

LCD TV with many Spanish stations and a couple of English tv stations.

The people who run the house are lovely (they do not speak much english but will try to help with anything) Free Wifi was a great selling point for me, there is also a computer in the common areas that is free to use

For couples looking for a clean comfortable place to stay in a great location but do not need any extras I would recommend the Hostal Cruz Sol

We stayed in so many nice hotels around Spain that we may be spoiled. The price was decent at Cruz Sol but the room was tiny and not very clean (there was hair on the pillow and sheets).

The location is great, about a block from Plaza Mayor and two blocks from Plaza Sol.

This is actually a mini hotel. It's a bargain for the price but best to work out where it is before you get to Madrid. Not hard to find - just no directions have been put on hostelworld.

The hostel was located at the plaza Santa Cruz.Just next to the plaza Mayor. Couln't be a better location. Te room was very small but very clean. Also the bathroom was very small but clean and enough towels. There was no breakfast but there were enough possibility's in the area around. For the price we payed it was perfect.

Magic place 20 metres from Plaza de Espanha. Warm rooms en suite, free internet all the hotel features, comfy beds. Pre book to get good prices. Across the Plaza id the Mercado de San Juan, a glass covered market full of tapas bars - wow !!!

Room Tip: Rooms are small but so what!!

Great location, a few steps to Plaza Mayor, abundance of bars and restaurants in the area and safe location. If you were ever bored just go to Plaza del Sol or Plaza Mayor to check out buskers. Royal Palace was a 10 minute walk away.

Hostal located on 3rd floor of building. Room was very clean. The owners live in the complex and obviously take pride in their hostel. TV in room - heaps of channels, bathroom was large and shower powerful just how I like it. Smelt like a BBQ because of restaurant downstairs which always made me hungry. Room had a balcony and a nice view of passage way which is cool to people watch. Free wifi and PC in reception area. Room and building very secure, was provided with a swipe card. Airport 30 mins away via Metro station Sol. Staff was very helpful.

It is called a hostel, but you have private rooms with your own private bathroom for only 50 Euro a night. It is an amazing value for the price, it is clean and safe and in an amazing central location right next to the Placa Mayor. If you don't need all the amenities of a concierge and in hotel breakfast (there is an excellent pastry/coffee shop right below at street level) then this is a great option for an economical place to stay in Madrid. If you're driving there is reasonably priced public parking right next to here also.
