"Very clean, good location, economical"
The Hostal Sonsoles is what you want in a budget hotel: perfectly clean, good shower, decent bed, well located. I had a single (with a standard single bed); the room was very small, but that was fine, that's all I need. Bathroom was almost as big as the room, with modern, well-functioning equipment -- none of the common problems with poor shower head […] or limited hot water. There was a split-system air conditioner -- though I didn't try it since it's April. Elevator from the ground floor, some rooms are up a staircase from the entrance floor. Common areas are not beautiful. No breakfast, but lots of choices in the neighborhood. I strongly recommend this place as a budget choice in Madrid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Functional, clean, good value and great location"
Hostal Sonsoles was a perfect base to enjoy Madrid, location was ideal. The room and ensuite bathroom were not luxurious but very functional, spacious and clean. The bed was great, firm mattress and extremely comfortable. Aircon wasn't used much as it wasn't that hot at night, though it looked old and flimsy so maybe something to keep in mind during […] August. Overall it was great and would gladly go back.

While the location of this hotel is very central, and the entire facility is very clean, the rooms are tiny, and you can hear everything in the adjoining rooms.Don't expect a good nights sleep if you are unfortunate enough to get inconsiderate neighbors, as we did.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect place to explore Madrid"
Hostal Sonsoles is on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a palace-like building in a narrow but lively pedestrian street a few steps from Gran Via and 5 minutes walking from Puerta del Sol. Several metro stops are close-by. The room was not large but charmingly furnished. The bath room was very modern and comfortable. Staff is very friendly but communication […] in English is somewhat limited, not a problem for me though. I can only recommend this hostal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Klein, aber fein"
Sehr freundliches Team, jederzeit erreichbar, und eine gemütliche kleine Pension in absolut zentraler Lage - wir sind sehr zufrieden und würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Alles super-sauber und einwandfrei.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excelente ubicación y servicio."
Fue una gratísima experiencia. Alquilamos una habitación con baño privado y la calidad es buenísima. Incluso mejor que en algunos hoteles. Pese a que el hostal está en la segunda planta, cuenta con un ascensor espacioso para llegar hasta él. Absolutamente recomendable por el precio y la zona en que está ubicado. Cerca de todos los lugares turísticos […] y de ocio por lo que te ahorras mucho en transporte. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dejligt familiedrevet hotel"
Vi boede på hotellet i forbindelse med en forlænget weekend i Madrid. Hotellet er rent og pænt, og værelserne har en god størrelse. Vi var to søstre, der skulle sove i samme seng - og her var en dobbeltseng på 120 cm måske lige det smalleste. Ellers har vi absolut intet andet end ros til hotellet. Det var hyggeligt og bar præg af at være drevet af en […] familie, som var søde og opmærksomme. Beliggenheden af hotellet var fantastisk, tæt på offentlig transport og let at komme til og fra. Vi spiste morgenmad på de små kaffebarer, der lå i sidegaderne tæt på hotellet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"lo mejor para ir de compras"
El hotel está en una de las calles comerciales llenas de tiendas. No se oye ruido de la calle, sólo un poco del corridor. Hay ascensor. Está cerca del centro y los barrios divertidos de Malasaña. Es facil llegar, el metro Gran Via está a 200 metros.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Location, Safe, Clean, and Basic"
06/27/14 Pere1977 Barcelona, Spain
Hostal Sonsoles is not a luxurious hotel, but its location close to Gran Via metro station is extremely convenient if you want to visit the center of the city. The street the Hostel is on is a commercial pedestrian street, filled with cafes and shops. The Hostel is clean, silent, has all the basics, and reception is 24h a day. Prices are unbeatable for the value you get. Perfect choice if what you look for is simply a room to leave your valuables, have a good rest, and a clean shower, and mainly will be walking around the city, and not staying the whole day in the room. Wifi connection has been recently improved and goes across all halls and rooms too. My third visit in Madrid in 16 years, and always stayed at Sonsoles.
"Nice and cosy place"
06/10/14 AxelHahn Sulzbach (Taunus), Germany
A nice and cosy place, very close to Gran Via and just around the corner of Metro and Malasaña. Very friendly management, with minor problems with english speaking :). As it is central, it is not in an extreme quit surrounding.
"Superb location - value for money"
04/16/14 marr0na Dublin, Ireland
Located just off Gran Via and on a pedestrianized shopping street with tapas bars nearby - this is the ideal location for a base in Madrid. We arrived on a Friday evening and set out on a tapas tour. The neighbourhood was really buzzy and we took in approximately ten tapas bars but were never more than five minutes walk from the hotel! Walking distance of Prado and Plaza Mayor. Would stay here again.
"Great hotel in the center of Madrid"
01/15/14 Quang T Hanoi, Vietnam
During my visit to Madrid I stayed in this great hotel. It is located right in the city heart, within walking distance to all the main areas of interest of the city. It is run by a very friendly family, who can help you during your stay there. The rooms are very nice, and they have private bathroom. Everything was perfectly clean and I enjoyed my time there a lot. Definitely recommended for all kinds of travellers.
"Excellent value for money, great location"
10/01/13 Can P Can Picafort
Stayed for one night at the end of September, brilliant location, only short walk away from Gran Via, great value for money, it was very clean, you even get towels and shampoo / shower gel; only drawback was thin walls, you could hear people next door coughing in the morning but it was very quiet at night; also, bear in mind that need to ring a buzzer to get in and no visitors are allowed.
"Excellent Good Value Accomodation"
04/26/13 solomio123 Dublin, Ireland
There are so many hostals/pensions with hotels of every description from the humble to glitzy 5 Star properties in Madrid it's always good to get a trusted recommendation. I can recommend Sonsoles without hesitation as excellent good value accomodation. I have stayed here several times over the years. It has recently undergone a complete upgrade which has raised the standard from basic to comfortable. Good beds with more than adequate bathroom facilities. Good storage with in room safe. In room phone with international dialling access. During a cold Spring stay recently the underfloor heating made my stay very cosy. Air conditioning facilities in each room for warmer weather. The common areas of the building in which Sonsoles is located have also been upgraded which highlights it's impressive architecture. Calle Fuencarral has been pedestrianised which has enhanced the location. There are no breakfast facilities. Not to worry: loads of great cafes nearby. The location is excellent close to Grand Via. A short walk to the airport bus stop at Ciebles and Grand Via underground subway stop. Highly recommended especially if travelling on a budget.
"Clean and comfortable, with a perfect location"
11/01/12 Maja M Belgrade, Serbia
We stayed at the Hostal Sonsoles in May 2012, just for one night - unfortunately, we had no time to spend a few more days in beautiful Madrid! The place was in a great location, easy to find, near the metro stop at Gran Via (and also near Tribunal metro stop). The place was very clean, the room were spacious, the bathrooms spotless. We were very pleasantly surprised! The staff didn't speak much English, but that wasn't a big problem - we managed to communicate everything we needed. I recommend this place definately, you will find it a perfect spot from where to begin your exploring - it is near Gran Via, Sol, etc. and also near Malasana for those who like to go out at night.
"Great location & very clean"
07/02/12 MatthiasBoeing Germany
We didn't expect too much but it was def a surprise. The location was pretty good. Subway station are close and the hostel is directly on a crowded shopping street. The cleaning service was excellent. The rooms looked cleaner than some of the Hotels I went to. The only disadvantage: the service personal and the receptionist don't speak any english or other foreign language. However, it was great staying here. Highly recommended for a rather low budget trip to Madrid.
"Family from England"
11/06/11 Tracey W Brighton, United Kingdom
We had a very clean, comfortable double and twin room with fresh towels every day. Staff were very friendly. This hotel is in an idle location, a few minutes away from the Gran Via metro station and there are great bars, restaurants and shops around it. We would definitely stay here again.
