Reviewed 17 May 2011

We booked this place based on positive reviews on tripadvisor. I don't know who wrote them, but my experience was quite different. We booked room number 19 for a two night stay. The elevator was large enough to accomodate one person only. There was ongoing construction right outside our window. When I say outside, I mean that you could shake hands with the person working on the scaffolding outside the windows. The "very helpful" attendant assured us that there will be "not much noise". The banging went on forever. The full tub measured 2 by 3 feet (no, not meters). The room looked liked it had not been painted in decades. I don't know where they got the pictures they posted on the net, but they are clearly not from this hotel. Last time we stayed at Hostal Astoria in Madrid and found it clean, bright and charming. So why did we not stay there this time? Trying to save 30 euros, stupid I know.

It was just a nice hostal, small but great...excellent location, just a few blocks from the Gran Via, and 4 blocks from Plaza del Sol. Lot of fun around, the agency to take day trips was about 7 blocks...metro station just 3 blocks away.
Clean & the stuff was nice...for such small hostal I have to say that the price is very worth it and affordable. Nothing to complain about it.
Clean, room for one person very comfortable, TV plasma...a kind of noisy during night time because of the bars around but it was OK, after long days you don't see a problem.

Everyone has written about the hookers in the area so I will only comment that hookers are in many tourist areas in Madrid. My husband and I were never bothered. The hotel is only a five minute walk from Gran Via and another five minutes to Plaza del Sol--excellent location. The room was extremely clean, although it was small and the bathroom was very small--nothing unusual for Europe. We stayed there three different times over the course of a month in Spain. Twice we had a room with a private bathroom that faced the courtyard, which was pretty quite at night. The last time we stayed their we had a room with a shared bathroom and our room faced the street, which was a little to noisy. We would stay there again.

I arrived at the Hostal Condestable after a long journey across Madrid from the airport by Metro. I would advise using this as on my return I took a taxi from Gran Via Metro costing me 24 Euros- very pricey. I must admit that I found it very difficult to find the Hostal which is in fact very easy to find as it is only a stones throw away from the Gran Via.

The Hostal is quiet and run by pleasant, helpful folk- do not expect anybody to speak English! However, with some rudimentary Spanish and a phrasebook you'll get by. My room was clean, simply furnished and adequately decorated. the two small bathrooms were opposite so it didn't matter that I couldn't get one of the en- suite rooms.

There are many prostitutes in operation within the immediate vicinity of the hotel, however, they didn't bother me and I was a single guy travelling on my own. You would have thought that if anybody was going to be hassled by them, I was. The area has many small bars and cafes which are frequented mainly by local people and families.

I was impressed with the hotel as high standard budget accommodation as it was clean and comfortable and trust me I have stayed in some dives, so I know. I would stay there again without hesitation, the street it is on is virtually free from traffic which is important in Madrid. I would also recommmend this hotel to friends.

For £35 a night in the heart of Madrid, this would take some beating. situated up 3 flights of stairs, the hostal is clean (fresh towels everyday & room cleaned daily). Staff, though speaking little English, are friendly and helpful.
The airport is only 35 minutes away on the excellent Metro.
The area around the hostal is a bit dodgy, but we didn't have any problems. A few prostitutes around, but don't that put you off this hostal. 2 minute walk and you are in the heart of Cinema/ Theatre land, and the bustling Gran Via.
Madrid is a great place for a city break. The Royal Palace, Reina Sofia art gallery & the Bernabau Stadium are just some of the top places to visit.
The Hotel Condestable is at the very heart of Madrid, within walking distance of all the main sites.

Hostal Situated in the center of Madrid, 100 meters from GranVia and not far from the Metro Callao or Metro Granvia (3 min. walk)
The Hostal is also near Chueca district (1 min walk)
I stayed in a twin bedroom in the new years time.
The room was cleaned everyday and well cleaning.
The Hostal is controlled 24 hours a day with a night porter.
The staff is very polite and at your disposal.
The room is not very big to stay for long time, every rooms have their balcony.
The bathroom is not very big but it is suitable.
The price is very excellent, I paid only 45 € for room at night.
The only thing that I disappointed was the district, that during the day and the night is full of prostitutes.
I recommend this hostal to all people want stay in Madrid for a cheaper/quality holiday.
