Built in a building dating back to 1871 which preserves its original structure, Hostal Persal is located in Barrio de las Letras, in the very heart of the historical and tourist centre of Madrid, 100 metres away from Puerta del Sol, beside Plaza de Santa Ana and very close to Plaza Mayor and Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofía museums…Hostal Persal is located in a pedestrian area with access for taxis and private vehicles to its doorstep. There are two public car parks just 50 metres away from our establishment (Plaza Santa Ana and Plaza Jacinto Benavente). Plaza de Santa Ana is famous for being an area for tapas and nightlife.

This Hostal is located near the Puerta del Sol square. The service is great, all employees give you a smile and are ready to help you. The rooms are clean, air conditioned. It is hard to believe that there can be cheap and perfect.

This is a good Clean 3 Star Hotel; it is in the Perfect Location. Walking distance to Plaza Mayer, Prado Museum, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Puerta del Sol, etc etc. We walked to Cardamomo, the Flamenco tablao (Flamingo Dance) it was great. Next door to the Hotel is Ginger Restaurant (open 1:30 to 4:00) excellent food & atmosphere at a reasonable prices. Multiple places to eat or drink coffee We took Uber from the Airport, 18 Euros (Don't use Cabify)

Treated ‘Royally’ during COVID lockdown. The staff could not have done more for us. From wonderful breakfasts to tips on how to get a supertime meal (during COVID lockdown)...they catered to us as if ‘family’. We have been there three times now, and will NOT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE when in Madrid. They are in the PEOPLE business and know how to make you feel at hime in their Hotel. Best of luck to all the staff & families. You are in our thoughts at this time❤️❤️❤️ Patti & Johannes🇨🇦😷

Our stay was very good. The room was spacious and confortable. The bathroom was clean, we only had some trouble adjusting the water temperature. Breakfast was REALLY good :) it had plenty of options and it was delicious. Plus, the location is excellent and very well connected. Overall, it is a very nice place to stay.
