Hostal Laris
Ranked #406 of 437 Hotels in Madrid
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

This budget hotel is perfectly situated two minutes walk from gran via metro station and many of the central city attractions. For the price it offers comfort and security although, understandably not the service you would expect from a four/five star hotel. The location did have several working people, both tradesmen/builders in the daytime and working ladies in the evening. This is common to a number of European cities so can be expected in this type of area.

the reception was rather dull but the staff were very pleasant. when i go to my room it is VERY tired and TV didnt work the stool in the bathroom had died and gone to heaven i think ! it wasnt dirty but not great ! The location is wonderful right next to the grand vie and some good shops! The dining area is in the almost basement so a bit dark . The Breakfast was unmemorable sadly- Its three star but only just !!!! not my best hotel experience !!!

Room Tip: i only saw one !!!!!

Dear Lynda W,

Firstly, we would like to thank you for having shared your comments about your stay al the Hostel Laris at TripAdvisor site.

We would like to explain you that the Laris is a HOSTEL not a Hotel So, this is the reason why you could be a little confused about the rating and also regarding your expectations.

We have taken into account your suggestions related to decoration and also about the inconvenience caused with TV. We have transmitted it to the maintenance department in order to solve it.

On the other hand, we are glad to hear that the location of the Hostel was great for you.

We hope to welcome you back in the future and be able to show you our improvements.

Regards,

Almudena Salas

I stayed four nights at the Laris over Christmas. Very professional and friendly staff, nice, large room, and everything was clean and functional. The location was perfect for me (it's two minutes from Gran Via metro station, right between the hip cafes of Malasana and the crowds of the large avenues). I had a great time!

Good breakfast, clean rooms and excellent location near Gran Via metro - many eateries and coffee shops near - the hostal is in a downtown city sidestreet but the general location makes up for this - supermarket near the hostal - carpets are clean but old and need to be replaced. The breakfast is very good compared to other hostals.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing the street

I've stayed in many hotels across the world but this was by far the worst that I have experienced. Didn't have our booking so put us in the last remaining rooms, no air conditioning, bed bugs!, mattress which sunk in the middle, no toiletries. I ended up staying in my friends room as we had nowhere else to stay on a busy weekend - no refund. Receptionists are rude - always say "need to speak to our leader!" LOL! Jobs worths - feel really sorry for them as they obviously don't want to work in customer service. Another excuse is "come back in 3 hours". It's a joke. Owner would be better of throwing a load of bunk beds in every room and charge people £10 a night or have as a brothel. Could not even borrow a bottle opener - had to buy from the corner shop.
Avoid, avoid, avoid!

We were 1 minute away from the Gran Via and 2 minutes from the metro station. A lot of shops and restaurants around, especially cafe la Luz was a favorite! The rooms are quite noisy though...
