Lonely Planet review
Economic crisis or no economic crisis, the 24 rooms at this well-run hostal have been wonderfully renovated with exposed brickwork, brand-new bathrooms and a look that puts many three-star hotels to shame. They also have terrific apartments (some recently renovated and ranging in size from 33 sq metres to 200 sq metres) with fully equipped kitchens, their own sitting area, bathroom and, in the case of the larger ones (room 51 on the 5th floor is one of the best), an expansive terrace with good views over the rooftops of central Madrid. It’s a favoured haunt of writers (Gunter Grass wrote one of his novels in room 53). Fabulous value all round. The apartments have a separate website – www.apartamentosmayorcentro.com.
Our independent authors have visited Hostal Madrid and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Madrid.
