We were unfamiliar with Spain, let alone Madrid, and this location was absolutely perfect for our 4 day whirlwind visit. We never needed to take a Metro or a taxi to get anywhere. Unfortunately my phone was stolen at a sidewalk cafe and I did't have much command of Spanish. The hotelier was extremely helpful and allowed me use of their phone for almost […] an hour trying to get through to Apple and my phone company. They were really sweet and helpful.

"Experience Madrid Like A Native"
If you want to experience Madrid like a native, this is the place; you will be in the center of all the activity in the area! Building must be about 100 years old, but it is very well maintained. Room has 12' ceiling, typical of the circa 1900 buildings. At the time the building was built, each floor shared a common bathroom and there was no elevator, […] but they have since upgraded the rooms and added a private bathroom to each room and an elevator in the center of the elegant stairway. The included breakfast was simple but good, could not ask for more. The balcony overlooks La Puerta Del Sol Plaza, the iconic "center" of Madrid. At any time during the weekend, you could see the thousands of people transverse the very large plaza, to be entertained by the numerous street performers, or to have a meal or drink at one of the large number of restaurants and pubs, which can be found in every block surrounding the plaza. Many streets, which connect to the plaza, will lead you to other surrounding plazas and similar content. We did not need to rent a car at all; there is plenty to see, all within walking distance. For other museums and sites, like the Royal Palace, the central park, etc. we took a tourist tour bus which has a stop right in front. Had a great experience and would definitely go back and stay at Puerta Del Sol Rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to metro - and centrally located!"
Finding the hostel was a bit of a problem at first, but it was easy to get to, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. I was really impressed with the Madrid metro system - anything we wanted to find could be accessed within less than 20 minutes from the hostel, and that's just if we needed to take multiple metro lines to get there! […] I would definately recommend this place! Great rooms. Free wifi. 24 hour tea and coffee! Breakfast included… toast, meat, cheese, butter and jam… tea and coffee and juice… only complaint was the water pressure… but since we usually travel to see the city, we'd definately use this place again!

This hotel was very bad, because doesn't have bathrooms in the bedroom, I had to pay 100 dollars for take another bedroom, it was a very very bad experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on Puerta del Sol"
Had to stay in Madrid for one night and this is one of the affordable and best centrally located places. Got there early for check in but the staff was very accommodating and expedited a room for me on the 5 floor - they were still cleaning the place. Free wi-fi and complimentary breakfast. Very clean, just the beds were a little like roll away types […] - but got a quiet room facing a patio. Would stay again !! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
THE STAFF AT THIS HOSTAL WAS RATED VERY HIGH.. THEY WERE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS AND PROVIDED US WITH SO MUCH GUIDANCE ON HOW TO VISIT PLACES/ IF ANYTHING , WE HOPE THEY WILL BE THERE WHEN WE VISIT MADRID/Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very friendly. Hostel located right in the middle of Puerta del Sol - great location. We were comfortable and very satisfied with our stay. I would return again with a friend or a significant other - either group is great for this!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous location. Great staff!"
We checked in after a long flight and were greeted so kindly! We were allowed to check in early and needed the rest. Our room was clean and served as a great central place to go see the Prado and all the art museums. Its so central to everything! We walked the whole trip.We stayed 4 nights. Even though on a busy square, our room was quiet. The air conditioning […] worked great, the staff was very helpful. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a safe and comfortable place to sleep after long days of sightseeing. It's not fancy but for the price, it's a steal! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my first stay in a hostel, and it was great. No frills, but you get a bed, a table, working bathrooms down the hall, etc. the Wifi is reliable, and the staff are very nice. They have limited English skills if you care about that. They serve an okay breakfast in the mornings. Nice place.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A good location for Madrid"
I spent five nights, four days at this hotel. At first I was nervous because it is on the 4th floor at the Puerta del Sol, one of the busiest places. However, I never heard a thing. I slept well. The owner was simply delightful and funny. She spoke French and English and was most helpful. There was a continental breakfast, nothing fancy but filling […] for the day's activities. And one of the best things was the location: I was 15 seconds from the entrance to the Metro, one of the pivotal ones. And plus I could walk to many of the places I wanted to see from the Puerta del Sol. It was clean, had a free old computer (it did work) which was free, and inexpensive for Madrid. No complaints.

"great location and value"
Great location, right on the Sol plaza, where there's a metro stop. Efficient room and bathroom, with everything you need. We spent our days and nights walking around the city and this was an easy location to get back to - great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the convenience of the location. The elevator was nice to have. The breakfast was ok. The beds were not as comfortable as I like. Boxsprings would make a difference in the quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, friendly staff, would stay again"
It was a five star hostel. I have stayed at other hostels while traveling and this one was great, exactly what you would expect (in a good way). Daily: fresh towels, shampoo, soap, plenty of hot water before noon, our guess was most people slept in :), the bed was made and breakfast (toast, ham, cheese, jam, butter, cereal, graham crackers, milk, OJ, […] water, Spanish coffee). The heater definitely works. We opted for an interior room, but since we spent most of our time out it didn't bother us. We still had windows with a traditional view of Madrid buildings, I studied abroad here and it was a view I was use to, clothes hanging from other floors :) The location was great, we took the metro from the airport and as we exited Sol (c Alcala) we saw our hostel. It was my husbands first time in Madrid (Europe for that matter) and his first hostel stay and he was very pleased. He had plenty of doubt before arriving. Puerta del Sol is busy day and night, well patrolled, we always felt secure at whatever time we arrived to our hostel. Needless to say, we'd stay here again and we recommend it to anyone traveling to Madrid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Puerta del Sol Rooms"
welcomeming and helpful. Location was great, Service adecuate. The Wi Fi was poor and less than adecuate. Other than the internet poor access. My stay was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent loc with all services"
The location of the hotel is very convenient in downtown Madrid; it is possible to arrive via subway directly from the airport. In general, the service were OK (do not expect luxurious ones) but we had everything we needed, even breakfast!!!! I would consider it once more if needed. I can say, fair price for all of the offered services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't let the weird photos throw you off. This place is great. My first time in Madrid, first time in Europe for that matter. The staff were helpful and friendly. Free breakfast. Wifi only comes in at certain areas. Clean made up room every time we came back. Worth it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location, nice hostel"
Good! First time doing hostel, and it was just fine..To be kept in mind is that Madrid isn't populat destinations in Spain ( lots of beggars, prostitution, and petty crime with no landscape), so the hotels are cheap as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible Hotel !"
Very uncomfortable beds,No closets , Just horrible.I will never stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Puerta del Sol Rooms is a pretty nice hostel. Family friendly. I personally booked two rooms, but the owner gave us the suite since we were a family of 6. The room had the basics and it was super clean; in addition we had a nice view of Plaza Puerta del Sol. The continental breakfast was good as well. Close to the metro, Plaza Mayor, Gran Via and other […] points of interest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good cheap hotel, utterly central"
Incredibly central - our room had a view of Puerta Del Sol including a demonstration for a referendum (20 000 people filling the square, and the last phases of construction of a new Apple store immediately opposite. With a roll-down shutter and double glazed door to our balcony, it was possible to obtain quiet whenever we wanted. Breakfast was basic […] but sufficient, and hotel overall was great value. No problem that we checked in at 1:30 am - we phoned in advance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Great Service, Great Price"
Booked this hotel for the location only, was expecting it to be poor- was very wrong! Great budget hotel in an amazing location. I room was in the courtyard which was very quiet when thinking about the central location. Good breakfast. Room was very basic (but very good for the price!) but very clean- didn't expect to get what we got for the price. […] Would stay here again. The staff had excellent English and were very helpful. Thank you for a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought the hotel staff were friendly. There is an informal, relaxed atmosphere and the hotel is brilliantly, centrally located. Breakfast is as much as you want to eat. Value for money. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and helpful"
When we arrived for our second stay (we stayed 2 years ago) they upgraded our room and we were able to enjoy the terrace with a view over the square. The breakfast is very basic with toast and ham and cheese or marmalade and tea, coffee and orange juice, but a such a good price it was fine. The staff were always happy to help with any questions about […] places to go etc. We will be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely and friendly"
Excellent hotel for the price and perfect location, the staff are so very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. The rooms are clean and well heated in winter. Hot drinks are available throughout the day, and the breakfast room doubles as a lounge space - very welcoming. Would definitely stay again and recommend to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, you get what you pay for"
The location can't be beat. Easy to get to by subway or train from the airport, train station...anywhere really. The rooms and bathrooms are small and a little dingy but if you're not going to spend time there it's not that bad. I'd eat breakfast somewhere else despite it being included. For a couple of euros you can get much better quality and fresh […] orange juice at Pans just outside on the left. They do provide soap and shampoo but I'd bring my own Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Right On the sol square"
It's very near to sol .. So easy to move around and plan for day outs.. Stayed at ensuite double room with city view for six nights.. Lot of noise from the square reaches the room.. But didn't matter for us as we were very tired from the trips of the day and the noise would not affect the sleep.. The ensuite toilet is small and lacks ventilation .. […] We had to buy a air freshner.. Also the breakfast is very basic.. Overall worth staying owing to perfect location and staff Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In the heart of Puerta del Sol"
This is a stone's throw away from Puerta del Sol metro stop. It is a tiny door, with a travel agents sign. Don't make the mistake of walking past it several times, as I did. This offers tremendous value, for the location. It is basic, and an old building. If you're not concerned about staying at the hotel, for other than sleeping and showering, it's […] fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was alone and the room was small like I expected, but quiet. The cost reflected that. The shared bathroom was of no concern and my bed was very comfortable too. Someone came in daily and made my bed and changed my bath towel and I did not expect that at all. The breakfast was coffee, tea, toast with ham/cheese and cereal too.. Walk right out your […] front door into the Puerto Plaza de Sol!!! That was nice!!! I would stay here again for sure but remember, it is a room on the 4th floor (yes, elevator) but also felt very safe with 3 locked doors to get to my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very central, friendly staff"
The hotel is just off one of the main squares in Madrid, right by 'Meter Zero', so I don't think it could be more central. The staff were very polite and helpful, the breakfast was fine, and the building was in an 1800's block which had it's own charms. It wasn't the easiest place to find, as it's above shops and not very well signposted (look for a […] travel agents). Also, the room was pretty old fashioned and the facilities a little basic - but if you are only going to sleep there, it's more than fine. I would certainly use it again if I went back to Madrid.

Accommodation was basic but clean. The staff were helpful and spoke English well. There were not much facilities but the location was very central and you get what you pay for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean, cool with aircon, own sink. Only problem was that there was construction going on outside our window. So, earplugs very needed. Staff helpful, breakfast could be a lot better, it was like the cheapest bread, coffee, jam, cornflakes... so you may want to buy something to take. BUT location is wonderful, right in the heart of everything […] in Madrid, you don't need to take any transport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"glad i was there"
highly recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very good. Breakfast was simple but nice. Location is very central. Problem was that it was the noisiest room I had in my life. Every little noise in the hallway could be clearly heard. Also dripping noises kept me up the last night of stay. The beds seem to be more like a metal frame and a hard mattress. Would not recommend this place.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is in a great location and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was clean if basic. But if you want 5 star luxury in the city centre expect to pay a lot more. I will definately visit Madrid again and would be more than happy to stay at the Puerta Del Sol Rooms again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"in the centre of things"
I thought the hostal was great. So central, right by Sol metro station and easy walking to all the major sights. I stayed for 6 nights.The room was small and had all that i needed . It even had a door onto a balcony over looking the square. The double-glazing ensured no noise from the square. I shared a bathroom and toilet very near the room. The breakfast […] was uninteresting,but there was plenty of it and energetically stocked up and services right up till 11am!.Other guest all ages and nationalities. I found the staff friendly and helpfull and would certainly recommend it and stay there again when I next visit Madrid as I certainly will because Madrid is FABULOUS.

This establishment is meant for anyone who has no concern about comfort. The advertised private bathroom was built in the room as an after thought. The shower curtain is held up by pvc pipe and rope. Shower head broken. The slivers of soap provided were good for one hand washing. Toilet did not flush properly. No Closet. The breakfast was not worth […] eating. Anything I asked for, including calling a taxi, was not possible. It is well located close to the Plaza Major, but that is all. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
