“Very good location”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We went to madrid in november 2013 my husband and i. The location of Santillan Hotel is great, located in the madrid's center, Grand Via and surrounded by restaurants and bars. Rooms are clean and ok.
Just one negative thing: the staff don't speak English but that wasn't a big deal.
Enjoy!

Hostel located in center of Madrid well within walking distance of major attractions. If you rather take the subway, there are two stations close by. We did not need a rental car since we were able to travel to and from the airport via the subway system.

I was sleeping in the hostel for 3 nights close to Madrid Marathon. Good location and room was ok for a runner. The only thing which I disliked was a smell of cigarettes that owners were smoking, as my room was next to them.

good experience, good rooms, great location. Would go again. Not much more to say you can walk to most of the tourist destination as well as good shopping in the area. Lot of restaurants and cafes and bars. Go wild ;)

Room Tip: Nice people, great location. I would pick a room with a view of Gran via, but then again sound from...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in March. Our own quaint room and bathroom cleaned as requested was perfect for our needs. This is not a hostel for young people looking to meet other travelers (no common area) but rather more of a budgeted small hotel room. Perfect for enjoying Madrid (great location!) and feeling like you can really settle in and be comfortable while on vacation.

Hostel placed in heart of the cit; in Gran Via. Great location. It is an historic building. When you enter the hostel entrance is mesmerize you. Building has antique wooden elevator. Rooms are clean. I stayed two days in single room. Room has bathroom and TV: Staff is helpful. If location of the hostel is important for you Santillan is the best choice in Madrid.

I went there with my girlfriend and stayed in Madrid for 8 days. We only saw the people from the reception once because they were on a different floor, anyway, there was no need to see them because the room was always perfect. Once we needed an outlet because in Europe they are different and the owner lent us one and was really nice about it. A lady cleaned the room in the morning while we were gone and it was wonderful because when we got back the place was squeaky clean. Our room had a view to the GRAN VIA and we loved it, we saw previous reviews where people mentioned that it was noisy, coming from another country we suffered from jetlag and we stayed up til late and we barely heard noises, nothing that kept us awake really. We recommend this place to other couples traveling like us, as well as families, the rooms are just beautiful and the entrance of the building is really nice as well, everyone in previous reviews mentioned the elevator from the entrance, and we agree that it is indeed beautiful old elevator.

By the way, watch out for the consierge, she is a mean one, a little annoying.

Regarding the location, we had two metro stations extremely near us, and most of the main attractions and pubs, restaurants, etc we had near us. So the location is a big PLUS.

There is only one thing, and it may sound really weird, or in this case "smell" weird, and it is that the bathroom sometimes smelled like fish? we have no idea why but sometimes the smells in the bathroom sometimes got stronger, we strongly suggest if this happens to you as well, keep the bathroom door open, ALWAYS.
