“Perfect for a weekend in the city”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

I'm a regular visitor to Madrid, and this is definitely my preferred accommodation in the city. The location is superb, close to great shops and nightlife, but quiet at night. The single rooms are a good size, spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and the wi-fi works well. Light sleepers may need earplugs as the walls are a little thin.

The hostal Los Alpes is an excellent choice if you're looking for a cheap accomodation in Madrid.
The hotel is situated right in the city center, but off the main street, so it wasn't noisy at night.The room was very big and comfortable, well equipped with en-suite bathroom.
It was one of the cheapest options in Madrid, and we got much more than we had expected.

Ideally located on a street just off the Grand Via, you cant go wrong.

The hostal was a very pleasant surprise. I'll admit, I was a bit concerned about staying there, visions of shabby beds in cramped conditions danced in my head but when the lady let me in and showed me my room, i felt like id hit the jackpot for the price i paid. It was a reasonably sized room with my own bathroom with shower and toilet. Also with air conditioning and a good tv.

Theres free wi-fi for everyone and a public computer which you can use. With your room key, you also got a key to the front door so you could come and go as you please cause as someone said, the reception was not always manned.

Would definately stay here again, if I ever came back to Madrid.

Reviewed 30 April 2012

My Madrilena friends were appalled that I was going to stay in a hostal for only 30 euros a night. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spotless, the shower (pod-size) worked well, and the wireless was perfect. My only complaints were that the walls are thin, and I am a light sleeper, so you can hear others through the walls. However, I was on vacation, so I went back to sleep, and it did not bother me that much. The location is perfect; right off a shopping street near Gran Via, so even when you come home late at night, there are people around and you feel safe. I appreciated the heavy metal blinds to block out the light at night, too.

The only reason this isn't 5 stars is that the front desk was not always manned. A few times I had a question, but it seemed that the only time someone was there (or would answer the bell) was between about 11am-1pm.

Room Tip: I asked for an interior room to minimize street noise, and I was glad I did.

This Hostal is THE choice for a short break or a long weekend in Madrid! Very nice, clean and confortable place (accomodation only) but just a 2-3 minute walk from Metro Gran Vía station! So that means you're right in the centre of the city with all shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, etc in the area! Staff are also very nice and at hand in case anything is needed! The building in which this hostal is, is not modern but was nicely restored and you get this early 20th century air to it as you go up or down the wooden staircase! So for it's location and what makes it more atractive is it's very good value for money, I sincerely recomend it!!!

Room Tip: They're all good rooms for good sleeping quality as it's on the 3rd/4th floor and the street...

Hostal Los Alpes is a very nice hostal (accommodation only, so not a hostel!) right in the center of Madrid. It is located three minutes from the metro stop at Gran Via (from the airport about half an hour) in a quiet (during the night) street. The rooms are very nice. We had a twin room (good beds) with private bathroom and ac (it was over 30 degrees C, so we were very happy with that). The room wasn't very big, but very nice furnished an very clean. No view, but we didn't matter, we only were there to sleep. Maid service every day with clean towels. In some other reviews I read that they only speak Spanish, but the very welcoming man at the reception desk spoke English and German. And if he didn't, so what, you are in Spain! Nearby there were some possibilities for breakfast. And oh yes, I almost have forgotten to tell that the price was the best part of this review!
