We just needed a place to stay close to the bus station to catch the bus early to go to the airport, the hotel was perfect for that. Clean and very centralGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing fancy but right next to the Plaza Mayor and a short walk (less than 5 min) to Puerta del Sol. Surrounded by restaurants and cafes. Good price. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beautiful Plaza Mayor"
The location is excellent. There are Cathedrals, shops, restaurants, parks, Plazas, etc. nearby. The room is small, but adequate with balcony and private bath.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just around the corner from Plaza Mayor!"
Location was prime. Service from gentleman from Ecuador was exceptional from the rest. He spoke English, very helpful, and apologetic when I inquired about a door or window slamming all nite and into the early morning hours (ended up being the wind). I had a private room with bathroom. Bathroom was tight, even for a short gal like me (5'2"). Oh, and […] don't be alarmed by the homeless around that area. It seems a popular area for them. For the most part, not too bad for my first time experience at a hostel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A few steps from the Plaza Mayor--great location. Not a luxury hotel, but friendly, clean, well-maintained, and fantastic location for an excellent price. I would happily stay here again my next time in Madrid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our stay at the Perla. The room was very spacioius and quiet, the water was piping hot, and it was very clean. We gave the maid laundry to do and it came back fresh and ironed and very clean and we only had to pay 10 or 20 euros. There was a blow dryer in the bathroom, plenty of fresh towels and toilet paper and there was a tv on the wall so […] we could watch the World Cup soccer, which was going on during our stay. The staff spoke good English and were extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel was right in the center of town with fascinating shops nearby, such as a pastry shop that sold pastries from all over Spain, a woman's book store, an art shop, and a cheese specialty shop, as well as all kinds of attractions within minutes. We would love to stay there again. Also, the AC could be set to an exact temperature and it was nice and cool and refreshing in the room!! And all this for only 250 euros for 6 days What a deal!!!

"Terrible Hotel Service"
Really bad wifi, receptionist has a very sarcastic, disgusting attitude, they lock the door at night but don't provide you with a key so be prepared to wait an hour knocking.. on a more positive note the room was rather comfortable, shame about the horrible quality of service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"for the price AMAZING, very helpful service"
fabulous location could not have picked better - service was really friendly - lovely little hostel for the price so much better than a holiday inn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cet hotel à besoin d'une bonne rénovation la decoration et la plomberie et vraiment très vieille et dans un bien mauvais état! Sinon le service et la propretée est satisfaisanteGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was really nice near the plaza del sol and we had supermarket near so I think it was really comvenient. But there was no elevater so we have to carry all our bags up to thierd floor and the wifi at the room was not good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super leuke hostal op een top locatie"
Prima Hostal. Hele vriendelijke mensen. Super goede ligging in de stad. Prijs prima. Alleen veel straat geluid, maar als je een kamer krijgt die niet aan de straat grenst denk ik dat het een stuk minder geluid is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Très bien placé!!"
Cet hôtel est très bien situé. Un peu vieillot certes mais on peut avoir mieux en pas cher, et bien placé...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excelente ubicación y amable atención"
El hotel es sencillo, pero la atención de los recepcionistas es remarcable. Muy buena ubicación, a pasas de Puerta del SolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location place not good"
it is close to plaza mayor which was great. is about ten blocks to metro station it was difficult ti take our big baggage through the streets. the service was great... the receptionist was so kind and helpful. the build does not have elevator and the rooms are old. The cleaning was ok, but not the best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
２つ星ホテル故に施設に期待は出来ませんが、最低限快適に過ごせるものは一通り揃っています。ただ、バスルームが狭く男性にはちょっとキツイかな、と思います。ドライヤーの常備は有りがたかったです。隣室や階段からの話し声がかなり聞こえるので早く寝たい方には不向きかと思います。施設内は階段しかないので大きな荷物が有ると大変かもしれませんが、スタッフが手伝いを申し出てくれるので問題はないかと思います。廊下は通常、消灯されていてスイッチを押すと一定時間点灯するようになっていますが慣れれば問題ありません。施設が古い割にはカードキーなので施錠は安心できます。ただ、窓は鉄製の閂の扉で清掃の際に開放されるようなので貴重品は部屋には置かない方が良いでしょう。テレビが有るのでサッカーの試合なども見れます。スタッフに聞く […] と親切にチャンネルを教えてくれます。午前中は英語の堪能なスタッフがおり、空港へのアクセスや航空会社ごとのターミナルまで調べて教えてくれますので安心です。地下鉄のソル駅まで５分ほどで、グランビア通りやデパートにも徒歩１０分くらいなので買い物に便利です。いろんな観光名所へのアクセスも地下鉄で簡単にアクセスできます。空港にも地下鉄を乗り継いで４０分くらいで到着します。 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Goed Hostal in centrum van Madrid"
Zeer goedkope hotel midden in Centrum van Madrid (vlakbij Plaza Mayor). Vriendelijk (Engels sprekend) personeel en schone kamers. Uitstekende douche/WC. Je huurt puur de kamer, dus geen ontbijt, maar in de buurt genoeg moeglijkheden voor (goedkope) ontbijt. De kamer doet zeker niet onder voor de (luxere) hotelkamers. Enige nadeel, geen lift (hotel heeft […] 3 verdiepingen). Dit merk je als je terug komt na een vermoeide dag lopen. Voor de rest alleen maar positief over dit hostal. Een absolute aanrader!!! Ik kom er zeker terug Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Es un hostal sencillo, llevado por gente muy amable y está en pleno centro de Madrid. Es asequible y el wifi va muy bien, cosa que no se puede decir de hoteles más caros. Si lo necesito, volveré, sin duda.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great location to a great price, close to Plaza de Sol (and it's metro station) and Plaza Mayor. The staff were helpful and there was a lot of restaurants close. The walls were a bit thin but I would stay here again.
"Great location but very loud outside "
05/18/14 Corolla5 Bothell, Washington
We loved the location and found it really easy to get anywhere in Madrid from there. We had a room that faced the street and it got loud at night. So loud that ear plugs didn't help. If you stay there you might want to ask for a room not on the street. The bed had a weird long thick pillow that we had to share and was not comfortable. Overall the hotel is a bargain with a great location and the rooms are cleaned everyday quite nicely.
"This is an ideal Hostal"
10/19/13 parsifal Kalamata, Greece
This is an ideal Hostal in which to stay - the central location is excellent with many of the major sights within walking distance. The staff were friendly, helpful and extremely courteous. The rooms were a good size considering it is an old converted building. The rooms were clean and serviced every day. There are a couple of very good adjacent cafes which offer breakfast, snacks, meals and drinks.
"Nice, clean, good location and good price"
09/06/13 Jelena K Belgrade, Serbia
The building and the furniture are old but have nice rustic look. Atmosphere is warm and nice, staff was kind and helpful. Location is more than great: plaza de Sol and Plaza Mayor are really near. I'll most probably stay there next time in Madrid :)

Minutes away from the Plaza Mayor and Sol square, this is a wonderfully located hostel. Very reasonable, we paid E60 for two nights. Okay so the room was small and slightly bleak but it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It was our first time to stay in a hostal and we had been dreading it after staying at a gorgeous hotel in Cordoba but the hostal was great. Pleasant staff who helped us with our queries. Would recommend the café bar right next door for breakfast.
"A super nice cheap place to stay"
08/22/13 Rita P Famões, Lisboa, Portugal
I traveled a couple of days to Madrid with my boyfriend and my goal was to find some place near the centre of the city to stay that wasn't too expensive but that allowed privacy (not a room with shared bathroom, for instance). La Perla Asturiana proved to be the perfect choice: the room was very small, that's true, but perfectly clean and cozy, with bathroom and a lovely balcony over the plaza. Perfect location, very close to Plaza del Sol (and metro, buses, etc). The staff was incredibly nice, always asking if we needed anything; the day of the check-out they even offered to keep our heavy bag all day in order to allow us to walk the city more comfortably, and they gave us a discount for a next stay! I would definitely recommend it, specially to young couples.
"Great location. Very good price. Clean."

Stayed here on three occasions. Very good value for a great location. Staff helpful and friendly. Close to the Plaza Major and good restaurants nearby. If you're happy with simple, clean and cheap, this is a good spot for a couple of nights.

We received a remarkable service for little or nothing! Very good price and clean simple rooms. Not a luxury hotel but the price isn't luxurious either. Location could not have been better. I am very pleased for finding this gem and will definitely be back!
"Can't beat the price"
01/08/13 SpencerTracy Spain
The Pearl of Asturias!! I almost hate to write this because I want to have a place to go to when I visit Madrid!! It's a bargain especially if your focus is a cheap, clean place to sleep. The rooms are on the spartan side but are simple and clean. Good neighborhood, right in the heart of Madrid. Probably 150m from the Plaza Mayor, so very near the Puerta del Sol if you are into that mess. The hotel is clean and safe. The folks at the desk are more than hospitable. I believe they speak English as well. Rooms are straight forward - nothing fancy but clean and a flat screen TV that lets you switch over to English (or "V.O.") for films and TV programs. There is no elevator although they have one of those stairway lifts that goes up to the 1st floor. Charged fire extinguishers - Always nice to see! There are ots of good, affordable bars and restaurants in the area. If this is not the Latina district, it is probably just a street or two away. Great, affordable, lively area, although we had no problem with noise, though our room was on the side street. No parking but you can park at one of the underground public parking lots around the city for around 21€ per 24 hours. We parked in Principe Pio underground parking/metro stop which, as it turned out, was only 3 stops from the Sol metro stop (which is the closest to the hotel). If you like to shop, that might be a good place for you to leave your car. The parking is below a beautiful parking mall. If you want to park on the cheap, you can go outside the city and take a train in or park in long term parking out at Barajas. Probably not worth the time or trouble, though. As I read was the case, management happily allowed us to leave our bags with them after we checked out as there were a few more places we wanted to visit before leaving Madrid on our final day. Perfect.

Haha! Dark, narrow corridors, minuscule capsule rooms, facing a shaft-like backyard, all up some steep stairs in an old Madrid building. This is a far cry from carpeted floors and minibars. BUT you have got all you need; a comfortable bed, a stool and a bathroom with a little tub and a toilet. It´s kept spotlessly clean, everyone is friendly, it´s safe, the location near Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor couldn´t be better and it is VERY cheap. Spend your money on tapas, tinto de verano, cañas etc, and stay at the La Perla Asturiana.
