"Buena ubicación y buen servicio"
Sin sorpresas desagradables, buen servicio, y buen trato.Genuine Expedia guest review
Toplocatie, met zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaar. Lekkere bedden, schoon en ruim en dat allemaal voor een aangename prijs. Metro om de hoek.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
繁華街に近いことから週末は周辺で大騒ぎしているが、部屋までは声は聞こえてこず特に問題はない。 部屋は旧式のPCではあるがインターネットが使え、英語ができる人ならば大いに利用できる。 10月の滞在であったが、清掃中に窓を開けるため蚊が侵入していて悩まされた。 バスタブの排水があまり良くないが、気になるほどではない。 値段の安さを考えれば、素泊まりだけを考えている人には充分。とくにオーナーはかなり親切。Genuine Expedia guest review
Top! Het enige wat ontbreekt is een lift. Als je zware koffers hebt kan dat een probleem zijn, hoewel de hotelier bereid is om deze voor je te dragen! Geeft goeie tips over goed eten in de buurt!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
立地は素晴らしく、ホテルの快適度も料金に見合ってると思います。ただ、リフトがないのが残念でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Cheap place right in the centre of things. Really nice owner who does his best with english and is super friendly. clean rooms and very comfortable beds. What else do you need?? Only difficult thing is getting there and lugging bags up several flights of steps!! Be prepared!

Very nice place with a central location, the metro station is too close. Also the romanticism museum is directly infront of the hostel. It's very good value for money. Rooms are spacious & tidy. The owner "Jose" is extremely friendly, I would like to thank him as he helped us in our "excess" luggages & went to grab a taxi for us at our departure. If you need a clean & tidy place only to sleep over at night after a long touristic day then Hostal Benamar will be the good choice.

What everyone with 4/5 star rating has said is right. The location is superb, the cleanliness without question and the staff go over and beyond the call of duty. In Madrid, nobody speaks English but here, at the Benamar, they try their best and always have a smile. When you meet the owner, ask his advice( and take it). Local knowledge is only of value if freely given. His is. Breakfast across the street is good value( very cheap for eurozone) and try to find time for a journey to Toledo(DIY, by train, then book a tour when you get there- do it from Madrid and ripoff is the mode)
"Amazing Value!! Love this place!"
My husband and I found this place on tripadvisor and stayed here for a week for a quick vacation on a budget. First time in madrid. Location is perfect, one block (or less) from the metro station. Many places to eat and drink around here.. ask José (the owner I think) about Madrid Madriz and the churros place (we went to both this places almost every day!) Ask him about Paella as well, he recommended "La Barraca" restaurant, we had dinner there and it was AMAZING! .. walking distance too! This is a must do! seriously. Ask him about the best "Bocadillos" in town! You'll be happy! This hostal was great. It's not modern or fancy but you'll get Amazing value, super clean room with a private bathroom, flat tv, air conditioning and free wifi. And the best host/owner ever! So friendly and helpful! We can't wait to be back!
"great value hostal very central"

The situation of this place was excellent. It is near all shops, bars and tourist attractions. Not too noisy as it is on a quiet street. This is a budget hotel but very clean, with computer, good wifi and flat screen TV. The sign is easy to miss as it is above the first floor. Don't come with heavy suitcases though I was lucky and everyone helped me up the stairs. The owner was very helpful and even carried my bags downstairs and waited until I got a taxi to the airport.The hotel feels more like and apartment hotel. It was great value for the money and I would definitely go back.

We stayed here for 2 nights in August and were very impressed with the value and facilities of this hostal. The first impression is a little daunting, as in Madrid apparently it is common for hostels to be on upper floors. We carried a heavyish suitcase up 3 floors (carpeted) before we found the reception area. But once there the staff could not have been friendlier and the rooms were so well equipped. In August to have functioning airconditioning and a fridge in the room were a big plus, but there was even a flat screen TV and a computer workstation in each room! The location is great, within easy walking distance of so much in the centre of Madrid, and with even a 24 hour shop on a nearby corner.
"good budget hotel with friendly owner"

Very good budget hotel with very good location. The rooms are spacious, clean & have all the basic amenities with good furniture. WI-FI is free. The owner is very friendly. He helped us for every thing like booking taxi ,guided to good restaurants with very reasonable price.& visit to places of interest He was like family who helped in every matter. On arrival he even helped us to carry our luggage as there is no lift in this property
"the friendliest place"
06/29/13 PeterChonaDavidson Sydney, Australia
We enjoyed our stay here, especially our conversations with the friendly and attentive host. There are three flights of steps and no lift but he insisted on carryiong our bags, and gave us very good tips for local meals (including the wonderful cafe Madrid Madriz where we enjoyed very good three course lunches and wine for three people for 30 euros), laundries, and even advice for our son who was ill. The room was clean, modern and spacious and very good value. The location was fantastic; Madrid is a city of villages and this one (Tribunal area) had fine plazas with great meals at night, and every small imaginable.

This hostal is very well situated: a few steps away from lively Fuencarral and Malasana, very close to the heart of Madrid (Sol, Gran Via). It is easily reachable from the airport by metro (stop:tribunal). The owner of the place is really friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and spotless clean. There is free wifi access and even a computer in the room (ok, that kind of pc you have not seen for about 15 years but it works perfectly!). Flat screen tv in room too. The hotel is a little noisy mostly because of doors banging but i guess you'd have that kind of issue in any budget hotel, particularly in a city as lively as Madrid. And finally, the price: i guess it is impossible to find a better deal in Madrid! Would definetly come back!

A very comfortable room in a pleasant hostal just slightly out of the main central area of Madrid but only about 15 minute walk to Sol. No lift but the owner is more than happy to assist with luggage, order taxi and generally make you feel at home.
