Hotel Regina: Excellent location and good deal
Centrally located on Calle Alcala, the Hotel Regina is minutes from Cibeles, Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor, to name just a few spots. The location is truly excellent and that can't be beat. The lobby is nice and always bustling, as it's almost incorporated into the restaurant next door, and the staff is very friendly.
Accommodations depend, however, on which half of the hotel you're in. I stayed here at the beginning of our trip and at the end. On the first-leg, our room was in the modern back half. It was very nicely decorated, and the bathroom was lovely. (My photos here are from that stay.) The view in this section of the hotel is non-existent as the windows face an small opening between it and an office building next door. However, this creates an ideal sleeping environment and you'll never know that you're in the middle of a major city.
On our return leg, our room was in the front, older part of the hotel. I can't say that it was a negative experience but here are my complaints. There were three of us and the room was divided into 2 sections. I took the section with the single bed which was in an alcove. The alcove's sole piece of furniture was the bed. There was certainly room for a night stand where a guest could put his or her belongings and, more importantly, a lamp. The only light in that section of the room was the florescent one on the ceiling. It was horrible to have to use this blinding light whenever I needed to see something. Hence, the need for that table. Also, the person using that bed has no view of the TV while lying in bed. Some of us like that sort of thing.
The plus was the view (from the main room.) That just can't be beat.

Abami II: An almost perfect hostal
We were very pleased with our stay in this hostal. It was in a very good, central location, close to Metro stops, along the main streeet but still quiet, very clean, had new and tastefully decorated rooms, and had very good WiFi connection. They are also along a busy commercial district, so it was very convenient to find restaurants, or food or stores.
The downside was that the building has no lift, and as it was located on the third level with a 2 rather long flights of stairs for each level, it was a bit of a problem when you have several luggages and for elderly guests, as it was in our case. But the stairs were not steep, and were wide, so it was not a serious issue of access. Also, those at the reception do not speak English, or very little of it, so it would help for guests to know some basic Spanish words. They also could not give me precise directions from the Metro station (simply saying in the email which i sent twice that the place was near the station -- so what, i needed to know if you have to go right or left or wherever direction), so it was a bit of a hassle for me to try to locate the street by myself by asking passersby (i had no time to print a map). The toilet was rather small and had no place where you can put toiletries or hang the towels. But just the same, these were minor inconveniences and for the price that we paid of 60 euros a night for 3 adults, it was a steal, considering the overall excellent condition of the room (flatscreen TV, comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels, silent airconditioning).
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a reasonably priced place.

Husa Chamartin Hotel Madrid: EuroFM Board meets in Madrid
The hotel would not have been my personal choice; but it is clean, comnfortable and the staff are friendly. It is located above a metro station and has a good few amenities located around the hotel.
There are wifi facilities, which are charged at a reasonable rate and they can be used in your room or elsewhere in the hotel.
It was a pleasant place to stay; I even met some fellow Scots! Although they had emigrated to New Jersey in 1964. However they sounded as if they had just left the west of Scotland. they were a married couple and they both supported Glasgow Celtic!
Good lounge and lobby service.

Loft at Malasaña District: Madrid apartment
I didn´t stay at this cosy and modern loft although I highly recommend it.
The place is rented by a friend of me, Sara. She and her husband are both Architect and Interior designer, and you can trace those details in the decoration of the place itself.
The Loft is place is one of the most lively places of Old Madrid and the apartment is well equipped and modern.
A place to enjoy and to have it as an option if you travel to Madrid.

La Casona de Éboli: A place to enjoy with the five senses!
La Casona de Eboli is a place to enjoy with the five senses, very tranquil and magic. Every detail has been selected with delicacy and good taste of her owner, Rosina. She has built this small hotel with 5 rooms to offer her good taste for decoration, well-being and even in the cuisine, she is an artist!
The service is very good, both Rosina and Javier, make your stay a moment to remember.
The hotel at the moment have 5 rooms, however, they are accommodating a new one (soon will be listed in their website). All rooms are well equipped and with bathroom en-suite. There is wifi connection in all the hotel.
There is also a nice space of spa, sauna and whirlpool shower for those who want to release any stress.
Rosina and Javier offer different packs depending on the type of you stay. It is all listed in the web page of their hotel.
I love this place, for me is like a bubble, far from Madrid at 42km. Near of the airport and R-2 motorway.
I have been several times alone in the Tulip room and sometime with my partner in La claraboya room. Both very nice rooms. The breakfast is delicious, very abundant.
They offer as well the service of restaurant in the hotel, with some dishes to select from 4 starters, 4 mains and some deserts. Everything is traditional and creative cuisine by Rosina. Very very nice.
We did enjoyed the service of the spa and in summer the dinner in the garden, in winter a nice chill out in the living-room with the fireplace.
This is a place for the five senses :)

WayToStay: Madrid apartment
We booked an apt. through www.waytostay.com. Check in and check out were ok. The apt. was in 5 min. on foot from Plaza Mayor, but it was not comfortable. You can find another apt at the same building (Calle de los Estudios,3) Avoid attic as the roof is too noisy at night. EUR 467 for 5 nights.
The view is poor, but location is excellent.

Gran Hostal el Chiscon: Hacienda style original hotel north of Madrid
This hotel is in Colmenar de Viejo, which is a cute small city at the north end of the Madrid renfe high-speed suburban railway net - only 4 stops from the subway stations Chamartin, further going to Nuevos Ministerios and Atoche. Colmenar de Viejo is a nice spanish contrast to Madrid at the edge of the Menzenares sierra / El Pendrizo national park, a "arena de torres" is at the highest point of this small town. It is an old small city - no suburban concrete illness. The hotel is wonderful, only 2 stories high with wonderful stone plate floor (heated in the winter - I was there in February, perfectly warm). It is located in the old part of Colmenar de Viejo, with narrow streets and no big traffic, but not these high crammed tiny-room-houses as in Madrid city center. Very large rooms with very large modern bathroom, perfectly clean, large windows - gives you nice spanish countryside feeling. Only small breakfast (coffee + orange juice + some piece of cake self service), but very moderate prices. Very nice restaurant in the evening - and many small restaurants / bars / shops around in this nice Colmenar de Viejo - there seem to be only original spanish people around here. It has a free closed and guarded parking lot in the cellar if you come by car, and it has free WiFi in the reception and restaurant area.
Large rooms, Large bathroom, free guarded parking, free Wifi, nice hacienda-style architecture, very friendly staff.

Very well situated,in Chuenca districk, walking distance from all major attractions and metro stations.
Well maintained apt., safe, all bedrooms in courtyard away from nightlife noise.

The representative sent could only speak spanish...could not converse or understand english.
Exquisite 4 bd apt., 3 wash rooms, large living room, and dining room....all groceries except meat mkt within walking distance.

Hostels & Vegans restaurants
My favourite is the ECOCENTRO (http://www.ecocentro.es/index2.htm). They have store and supermarket too but it is a bit far from the centre.
There is a nice quick-food vegetarian in the very centre, 200 metres from Puerta del Sol, at calle Mayor: MAOZ (http://www.maozveg.com/59)
El Granero de Lavapies is a good one too, close to Reina Sofia Museum, if you happen to go there.

Torcal Hotel: Great Highway stop for the night
We were driving straight from Ericeira, Portugal to Madrid. We decided to drive as far as we can....or untill we will find suitable hotel/motel.
Well, we drove pass Madrid, as there was nothing that looked good....in the darkness of the night.....
We ended up spending the night in Hotel Torcal.
Inexpensive, clean, quiet, right on the highway between Guadalajara and Madrid.
Perfect place to spend the night after a long ride, especially if you have to return your rental car early in the morning to the airport.
Clean, large room and huge sparkling bathroom.
Safe, gated parking.
Nice, friendly stuff, I should say sweet stuff making sure that we are OK and we know where we are going :-)
Free cold, bottled water on every floor.
Located close (20 min drive) to the Barajas airport.

Apartamentos Madrid La Paz: Apartementos Is a Good Option Instead of a Hotel
Both times that I have visited Madrid I have stayed in a apartementos, because they usually have a central location and are more spacious with kitchen facilities. Cons are that bed linen and voice insulation is quite poor so I recommend taking you ear plugs with you.
It is quite easy to find information and make bookings in internet. The only thing is that there are some street walkers / workers mainly in Grand Via area (C/ Luna and C/ Montera) so it is worth reading comments about the ho(s)tels from the internet before booking.
Great location and overall tidy apartment with a small kitchen and bathroom.
