Hotel Don Ramon de la Cruz: 2 star hotel in Salamanca district

It's always hard to recommend hotels in the city where you live as you by definition don't need one. However, as Madrid is a quite popular city and your flat tends to get packed with visitors, I did have to look for a hotel for one of my visitors once as I didn't have any space left at home! I thus recommend this 2 star hotel, located in the Salamanca district, close to the Goya shopping area and the Ventas bullfighting arena. All in all, nice calm location, nice clean rooms and affordable prices.

Nice 2 star hotel in a safe and calm location yet centralized, and for an affordable price: around 50 euros for a single room. By the way, you might want to try to reserve it undirectly through an internet reservation website, as you will get special and cheaper prices as well as available rooms even when the hotel tells you it's full!

Hostal Astoria: cheap and convenient

We loved the Hostal Astoria since it was extremely convenient only about 5 minutes walk from Puerta del Sol.
there were lots of restaurants,bars and music places nearby but the room was not noisy. It had a/c and free internet and the folks at the desk were most helpful. No breakfast but no hostal in downtown Madrid does I think and lots of cheapo places around that you can eat and grab a coffee. Booked it at booking.com so free cancellation is available up to 24 hours before arrival.

Cheap and convenient.

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.

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.

Hostal Cervantes

We spent our first night in Madrid in Hostal Cervantes. It's in a great location, near all the bars and restaurants of Plaza Santa Ana and close to the big three museums. At 50 Euro for a double room it's one of the best value places in Madrid. The hostel is on the 2nd floor of an apartment block and the owner is a very friendly guy, though perhaps a little unorganised. He had promised us a room when we returned from Toledo but it had gone when we returned so he took us around the corner to another hostel instead. There was no air-conditioning which was a little uncomfortable on the first day as the temperatures were about 40 degrees, but otherwise everything was fine.

Hostels & Vegans restaurants

Bonsoir Cécile

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.

About hostels, some favourites for backpackers are:
METROPOL http://www.metropolhostel.com/index.html
POSADA DE HUERTAS http://www.posadadehuertas.com/index.html

Enjoy Madrid!

hostel Victoria II: the cheapest accomodation in the heart of Madird

We were in Madrid last year in Madrid and we found the best and cheapest accomodation in the heart of Madrid- hostel Victoria II, just one street of the main square Puerta del Sol. It was cheap and clean, it was cleaned every morning, with new towels, and everything else that you need. there was also a TV. We booked a room with a toilet online at www.hostal-victoria.com

Oriente: my Casa in heart of Madrid

this is a one floor hostel in the heart of Madrid, rooms are small but got everything u need: TV, AC, Heater, safe Box and a very nice clean bathroom with H/C water. the Staff is very friendly and helpfull, although u will find it hard to deal with them in English, but this is a very common thing among madrid people. No cerfue, they actually gave me the Hostel key so i can come in and out whenever i want. in Brief: very nice place to stay in, best Value/ Price deal, and i'd definitely recommend it

Very central close to all major monuments. 30 m away from the metro and Bus station (Opera). Extremely clean and tidy.

Coruna Hostal: Coruna Hostal

The Coruna is in the same building as the Sud-Americana. In fact, we were going to go back to the Sud-Americana, but the elevator was broken and the Coruna is 3 floors closer to the ground. The layout of both hostals is very similar, only they are mirror images. The furnishings of the Coruna are a little cheaper and more worn than the Sud-Americana, but it is very clean.

Petit palace Arenal Madrid: A hotel you can go with your pet!

In Madrid is difficult, in comparison to others cities in Europe, go with your pet in a hotel. Well in this hotel, very close to Puerta del Sol, center of Madrid, you can go with your pet. Of course, call before and ask it.

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.
