Where to stay: Hotels in Madrid

Recommended hotel in Madrid:

We recommend staying in the city centre (Sol, Chueca or los Austrias) in order to be able to walk to most places (you'll save money and time on trips through Madrid). You can also find hostels for less than 50€, but we don't recommend them because of their poor quality. The best thing to do is stay in a hostel or B&B for 50-75€ or in a nice hotel for 85-140€. Rates very greatly depending on the time of year, but we let you when this is the case.

Smart Choice: Hotel Plaza Mayor.
  • Smart Link: Offers are better on their webpage than on search engines.
  • Price: 60-90€ double room, breakfast not included (approx. £50-75).
  • Address: c/ Atocha, 2, 28012, Madrid. Tel: (+34) 91 360 06 06.
  • How to get there: Take the metro from the airport to Nuevos Ministerios station. Here change to the L10 heading towards Puerta del Sur and get off 3 stops later at Tribunal. Change to the L1 towards Valdecarros and get off after 3 stops (45 minutes, 2€). The exit closest to the hotel is the one that leads to Calle Mayor. From this street, go up Calle Esparteros and you'll see the hotel ahead (3 minutes).
  • Description: We have selected this hotel because it is more than respectable but primarily for its location: just a few steps away is Plaza Mayor, from which you can walk to the most visited areas in Madrid: los Austrias, la Latina, Sol, La Gran Vía, Chueca...
