My friend had booked a hotel right at the beginning of plaza mayor and it was very very expensive and the rooms were not even clean enough, we arrived from barcelona and thought of moving around a bit leaving our luggage at the reception there and not checking in, we saw La Posada del Dragon and the location is lovely,...

Totally fantastic stay! The location is brilliant, staff are lovely, and their pork ribs are the best I've ever tasted - wish we had eaten in the bar more than once! Definitely worth the extra euros for a balcony room, such a nice view in the morning. Would definitely visit again.

We loved our stay at this hotel. Rooms are on the small side, but had very cool design and it was really all of the space you need. There's a cute little tapas bar at the base of the hotel with a great selection of wine and local tapas. Lovely area ideally located close to a number of outdoor cafes...

AMAZING location. Near the metro, great bars and restaurants all around. The street is known for it's food. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Great bar/restaurant. I appreciated the charm of the street mixed with the modern design of the hotel. My friend booked the hotel so I cannot comment on price but I would recommend this hotel!

Local rustic place. The room was smaller then we had expected but its Europe and not the USA so its expected. The lobby is a restaurant / bar which is cool for the space. The decor is nice. Warning: the lobby of the hotel has no roof so its like having a open space int eh middle of the hall....

We stayed in the Posada del Dragon for two nights in late November 2016 during a rainy city break in Madrid. The hotel has been refurbished making imaginative and stylish use of the traditional interior courtyard. The room was a bit small without a view, which was as well since we were hardly disturbed by the late-night revelries in the...

We had a long layover in Madrid on the way home and only stayed at La Posada Del Dragon for 1 night. This was perfectly located on the busy street of Cava Baja, right down the block from Plaza Mayor. Absolutely perfectly situated for a one-night tapas tour. The room was very clean and modern, and right above a restaurant/bar....

Hello Zombiebacons, Thank you for your warm feedback! Located on La Latina, one of the most popular, central, and historical street, it may happen that the noise level rises on the weekends. However, the rooms on the 3rd floor should be quiet and the noise has not disturbed any of our guests who stayed there. We are pleased that you...

This hotel is a great option to enjoy in Madrid center. I stayed 3 days in Madrid for business and Posada del Dragón was my sweet home, in the heart of the older part of Madrid. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the room was clean. Was also given the room type we requested, which was great although did not realise this was above the entrance, therefore was really noisy all night. There is also a restaurant and bar downstairs which contributed to the noise....

Hello Verity, Thank you for your kind feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! The rooms with the balconies provide our guests with a real feel of what it is like to live in Madrid overlooking a historical street. La Latina tends to be busy especially on the weekends.

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
