The hotel had an amazing central location for seeing all the sights and good access to the metro. It was clean and the staff were very helpful even though we needed to check in late, and the room was basic but comfortable.
Hostal Continental is located on the Gran Via, right in front of Plaza de Callao. From there it is only a short walk to the Plaza Mayor and the "Madrid de los Austrias" area, as well as to Puerta del Sol. If you are willing...More
Nice and clean hotel. The staf was very friendly and helpfull. Hotel was situated in the very central of Madrid with everything on walking distance. A lot of nice area's (shops, restaurants and cultural buildings) can be visited by foot.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
