Pros: In a good area with lots of stores and subway station nearby. Good daily housekeeping service. Cons: Very noisy at night since it is near a major square. To register you need to go to the Victoria I Hotel (about 2 buildings over) first which is on the second floor what looks more like an apartment house than a hotel. Elevators in both Victoria I & Victoria II Hotels are small. Good for 2-3 people with 1 luggage per person. I was on the 4th floor but had to go to the 5th floor to reach my room with a very narrow hall and lots of twists and turns... not mentioning walking down 2 steps to reach the 4th floor from the 5th floor. The hallways had a switch for the lights (not motion sensitive)but they sometimes turned off before reaching another switch to turn the lights on again to see where you are walking. The card key to the room fail to work a few times for opening the door. Wi-Fi signal was weak or none at times. Bathroom very small... about the width of a double size bed. No cable TV channels and the channels that they had were all in Spanish.

Took a day trip from Barcelona with my mother and stayed for one night. Hotel was clean, quaint, and awesome location! Steps away from Puerta del Sol (and Metro station) in the middle of Madrid. Walking distance from many tourist attractions and great restaurants. Hotel staff were friendly, helpful, and spoke English. Would definitely stay again.

Siamo stati molto bene, ottima la posizione,camera superiore alle aspettative: piccolo frigo,tv, aria condizionata, cambio gionaliero degli asciugamani . Unica osservazione : nei pressi dell'albergo c'è una pizzeria aperta 24h su 24, quindi comoda ma un po' rumorosa. Sicuramente ci ritormeremmo!

The best thing about this hostale is the perfect location - literally in the centre of the city map of my guide book. You're approximately a 30 second walk from the nearest underground stop while most of the city's attractions are a within a 10-15 minute radius walk away. The hostale itself is very basis - and it's confusing trying to find the reception - there's no clues given on the sign itself, you need to buzz yourself in and then walk to the second floor. You don't get a key to the front door so you need to buzz in every time you want to enter - luckily there is someone on the desk 24 hours a day. The room itself was basic, we had 3 beds (2 singles and 1 double) between two of us though so plenty of room. Air conditioning is good, and the included fridge is useful. The bathroom was clean and functional although we did have a broken shower head meaning that you had to hold it above your head when you wanted to use it. Beds and towels were changed daily, while the room's safe meant I had no qualms about leaving my valuables in the room. There is inbuilt wi-fi but it's very flaky and would work sometimes and not others - don't rely on it. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for something to just crash in of a night that is clean, cheap and above all central.

The hotel is in a great location everything is close and you can use the metro which is 3 min a way Two things I would recomand to check: 1. Which room you will be at- there are 3 buildings one of them is new the elevator doesn't get to all floors and some rooms it's complicated to get to elevator then stairs then 3 doors Not easy! So ask for room with easy excess We ask help from the front dest when we arrived and when we left To help us carry the suitcases 2. They don't have breakfast but they is a bakary in the street Enjoy

Du kan ikke bo mere centralt. 50 m fra byens centrum og nabo til rådhuset. Lidt larm fra gaden når vinduet er åbent, men ikke noget der generer. Airkon på værelset. Vores værelse havde en lille bitte balkon. Værelset er ikke stort men pænt rent. Rene håndklæder hver dag. Husk at tjekke ind på Vitoria 1 50 m henne af gaden. Gode og billige restauranter bag hotellet især gaderne Cadiz og Barcelona kan anbefales.

Hotelli sijaitsee erinomaisella paikalla Puerta del Solin aukion äärellä. Vilkkaasta ympäristöstä huolimatta huone oli melko hiljainen (2. krs, ikkuna sisäpihalle). Ilmastointi/tuuletin oli välttämätön. Huoneessa - kerrankin - ei ollut kokolattiamattoa vaan puulattia. Jääkaappi oli pieni, mutta sillä pärjäsi. Ainut miinus oli kylppärin suihkun veden alhainen paine.

La habitación muy limpia aunque un tanto pequeña pero estaba bien. La entrada al hotel es un tanto extraña y fea pues parece q estuvieras ingrensando a un edificio deshabitado. La ubicación es perfecta pues estas en toda la puerta del sol y veinte pasos del metro. No me arrepentí de estar alli aunque si prefieren algo mas bonito deben buscar otro lugar. Este corresponde justo x lo q pagas y en mi caso estuvo bien xq lo q mas me interesa es la limpieza y en eso merece un cinco!

O Quarto era Agradável, banheiro pequeno mas também limpo e ovo. Tinha calefação e Ar condicionado, o único problema é que o Ar Condicionado não estava habilitado para o Frio, o que não faz o menor sentido quando se tem calefação, então dentro do quaro era quente, para refrescar tínhamos que abrir as janelas dai agente não dormia por causa dos vizinhos barulhentos que ficavam conversando até madrugadão, enfim, noites terríveis. Falei com o Dono ele disse que ia pedir pra um técnico vir se o tempo continuasse assim. esse único detalhe tornou minhas noites bem desagradáveis.

Gosto de viajar sozinha e normalmente fico em albergues com quarto individual. Como passo o dia fora explorando a cidade e volto apenas para dormir, dou prioridade à localização. Mas dessa vez, apesar de estar localizado bem no centro, fiquei decepcionada. O meu quarto (no terceiro andar), não possuía elevador, quando cheguei tinha cheiro de cigarro e a limpeza deixou a desejar: encontrei duas BARATAS!!!! Nem preciso falar que tenho pavor de barata... Não ficarei novamente.

La recepción del hostal está en otro edificio, muy cercano, de la misma calle; desde allí te abren y te cierran las puertas... Todo va bien si no te surge un problema a mitad de la noche (bueno, se puede llamar por teléfono); pero resulta que de madrugada hubo un grupo de hospedados que armó un gran escándalo: primero risas y fiesta, luego peleas, golpes en las puertas, etc. Pienso que si hubiera habido alguien allí, no hubiera ocurrido, o no hubiera llegado a ese extremo. Esto puede ser circunstancial, pero si ocurre, te estropea la noche y la estancia. La ventaja de estar en el mismo centro de Madrid es relativa. Uno está en la Puerta del Sol, pero todo lo que hay alrededor es para turistas y gente de paso (precios más caros, peor servicio y menos calidad); los hostales que hay por el norte de la Gran Vía y, sobre todo los de la zona de las calles Huertas y Atocha, están prácticamente igual de céntricos y ofrecen más posibilidades a la hora de encontrar un sitio cómodo para tomarse unas tapas o un café.

La struttura Hostal Victoria II ha soddisfatto le mie aspettative, la posizione è favolosa per girare Madrid anche a piedi. Nei dintorni si mangia benissimo e si spende poco. Albergo pulito e servizio efficiente. Unica nota negativa: il WFI a volte va e viene e non è possibile accedere a diversi siti (es. You Tube) ha comunque meritato la sufficienza...

"Hotel Victoria II - Pros and Cons"
05/26/15 freddybrooklyn Brooklyn, New York
Pros: Great location with the metro (subway), stores, places to eat near by. Located adjacent to the Puerta del Sol, a main square and metro station, easy to walk around in the area. The only good thing that I would say about the hotel was the good housekeeping service. Cons: Being by a main square it was very noisy to sleep at night even with the window & shutters closed. To register one has to go to another building to check-in or check-out. Does not look like a hotel at all but an apartment house. Small elevator in both Hotel Victoria II where I stayed in and a smaller one in Hotel Victoria I where you have to register in and out. If you travel alone then there should be no problem going up or down the elevator with luggage but if you have 1 or more people with you with luggage then it would be very hard to go up or down with luggage. My room was on the 4th floor to to reach it you had to go to the 5th floor. As soon as you get off the elevator you have to buzz (the reception desk in the next building, I assume) to enter the hotel property. To reach the room it was a maze of twist and turns with no permanent light on but a series of wall switches that you must press if the light is off ... which was in most cases. From the 5th floor after a number of twist and turns you had a doorway with 1 or 2 steps downward, that then became the 4th floor. It is hard to see in the darkness of the hallway unless you find the light switch to turn that one section of light of the hall on. To enter the room you needed to use a card key (like a credit card) but unfortunately it did not always work right away... sometimes inserting the card about a dozen times before it opened. There is free wi-fi but many times it did not work unless you called the front desk and then they send someone over to check it out. The room was small but if you plan to only sleep in the room that may be no big deal. The bathroom is just as small, maybe the size of a bed. There is a small mini bar but empty although with the local grocery stores near-by that is no problem neither. The TV screen is mounted on the wall but all channels are in Spanish with no cable TV attached to it. With Hotel Victoria II you check-in one building and stayed in another building where getting to the room you almost need a road map and a flash light. I stayed there for 1 week but I am sure there are much better hotels in Madrid, especially by the Grand Via.

"location is everything"
02/05/15 bizzielizzie57 Norwich, United Kingdom
My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights what an excellent location to say the least on the doorstep of sol metro station, and sol itself with all the bars, eateries etc the only downside is having to check in at one place then go to the location of your accommodation and the same applied for checking out. On a big plus was it had a lift which was so helpful especially when having luggage. The only downside was our room was opposite a bus stop that seemed to have busses waiting noisily at all hours plus a ambulance waiting station. The bedroom was clean if a little dated. But I would recommend this hostal if you need a central location.

"OK For Short Stay"
01/21/15 Janrockchick Chorley, Lancashire
Stayed three nights last weekend. Arrived about 10pm after an evening flight, to a check in at Hostal 1 (rather gloomy place), to a rather confusing way of getting to our room in Hostal II. Room on 5th floor overlooking the street, small room, tiny bath room, although fresh towels and toiletries each day. Noisy on the street below, with two rather annoying guys hanging around the front door all day shouting adverts for the buy gold business which seems to be on the first floor of the building!

"Great location , clean rooms , good price!"

My husband and I decided to visit Madrid in November 2014 and chose to stay in hostel Victoria II after reading positive reviews- I have to say - I will definitely stay there again! we arrived earlier than we were ment to check in on our first day but the nice lady in reception told us we can leave the bags with her and also checked with the cleaning staff if we can get to our rooms quicker( we never asked- she did it out of politeness) the reception is in hostel Victoria I ( next door) butthat was all explained in the confirmation email so we were aware of that. We took our card the reception lady gave us the WiFi password and we went to our room . The room was perfect for a couple staying for few nights. nice comfy bed, very clean - bathroom nice size with towels shower gel , shampoo and soap - and if needed more you can always ask the cleaning lady - she was very helpfull also. the bathroom also has hairdyer which was a bonus for me ;) The room also has a mini fridge which is nice.there's a tv and a radio , bedside lamp on each side of bed. the little balcony has a view of Puerta del sol - it's amazing location!! I was concerned about the noise but with the windows closed you cannot hear the noise of the city ! We stayed there 2 nights and I would definitely stay there again!

"Very nice place to stay"
11/29/14 docdiamond Raleigh, NC
We stayed at this hostal for two nights -- read the whole review, this is really a great place to stay. If you are driving, it is almost impossible to find, even with a GPS. We ended up parking and then walking to the hostal. When we arrived at the hostal, we tried to decline our reserved parking (having already parked), but had to pay for it anyway, which resulted in a very high bill for parking. Then they charged me in dollars without asking me, and then tried to tell me that they charged me in Euros. I don't believe that they were lying to us, because they did not speak English, and I did not speak Spanish. But they clearly charged me in dollars, which always results in a very poor exchange rate. You have to check in at Hostal Victoria I, and then you walk a few doors down to Hostal Victoria II, which confused a lot of folks. Victoria II is much better than Victoria I, because II is directly at Puerta del Sol, which is the nerve center of Madrid, and our balcony was front and center. PERFECT location, at a very reasonable cost, even if it was sometimes very noisy. The room was very nice and clean, and the staff that serviced the room was extremely pleasant and helpful. There were plenty of bars and restaurants as well as many different kinds of shopping in the area. And you are close to the Prada and everything else. If it wasn't for the parking and payment problem, I would have given them 5 stars. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

"Great Hotel in central Madrid."
10/09/14 DWAG1950 Southend-on-sea.
We had 2 nights at Victoria 2 after booking in just up the road at Victoria 1 in Calle Carretas. What a lovely surprise. Member of staff showed around the room and where everything was. Door card entry and for electric slot. Large double bed, small wardrobes including safe & fridge which is very useful. Window outlooks to a square court yard so little or no noise and a great sleep. Room 228 on the second floor approached from Carretas. Air-con was great extra. WFI fine no issues & password on desk in reception at Victoria 1. Bathroom small but adequate with a little bath plus good shower, toilet, sink and toileteries, with 2 bath & 2 hand towels. All replaced each day. Just cannot complain for something so central. B/Fast was in small bars in the road coffee & Croissant etc. You are right on the Puerta Del Sol and minutes from Calle Mayor. Metro's close as well. Highly recommend this hotel for location, cleanliness, value to visit Madrid. Great.

"Great location & services"
10/07/14 DanJM88 San Francisco, California
We stayed at Hostal Victoria II just one night in a twin room, but it was a really nice surprise. Could not complain about the room, there was everything you could need, even supplied toiletries and a fridge. Some could complain about the noise levels (although in this location it is unavoidable) but unless you are a very light sleeper it should be ok (thick windows). Overall a great choice for the price and very friendly staff

"Excellent location, clean and affordable"
08/20/14 Boris C Zagreb, Croatia
Very decent hostel in the center of Madrid for a even more decent price. They will provide a parking garage nearby also for peanuts. One can't complain about some noise since you are in the center of Madrid, but was not a problem. Room is clean and big enough. No complaints at all, would come back for sure.

"Good Value"
07/06/14 Sorelys C Miami, Florida
This review is really for Victoria II since that is were we stayed even tough our reservation was for Hostal Victoria I. it is in great central location, room was big enough for the 3 of us, 1 single bed and 1 double bed, really clean and bedding is new and confortable, with a wardrobe, some shelfs, a safe and a mini refrigerator. Our room was in the 3 floor or the 5 floor depending on which entrance you used, this hostal share various floors in 3 different buildings that are somehow interconnected, it is confusing at first but you get used to it. The bathroom was small but functional and always spotless clean, there is noise from the square but the doors help muffled it a great deal so not a problem for us. I would definitely recommend this place, the location is fantastic you are in the center of Madrid with the metro and the tour buses at your doorstep, and lots of places to eat or shop within walking distance.

"A very central located Hostal!!"
05/11/14 Sharon Z Qormi, null, Malta
Recommend this hostal as it was very clean and central. The rooms are not big but enough for those who spend most of their holiday getting around different places and going back to the hotel only to shower and sleep. We had a balcony overlooking Peurta del Sol and the metro is just across the road. Keep up the good work!!
