Stayed 3 nights and I loved it. The room is small but comfortable, clean and functional (all I was looking for). Bed (firm) and pillows extremely comfortable to me. Since room was facing an internal patio, it wasn’t noisy at all. Great breakfast (bread, cheese, ham, juices, apples, oranges) with expresso coffee (Nespresso machine) – self-service and available 24hs. Also,...

I stayed for five nights at the Santa Ana Colors and in the end I must say I love this place - with the BIG caveat of asking for rooms away from the street side. I switched in the middle of my stay and it made a world of difference. Why? The hostal is located in my favourite Madrid barrio....

Located right in the heart of Madrid's old quarter, this Hostal is only minutes walk from the Plaza De Mayor, Prado Museum, Royal Palace, Cathedral and the city shopping precinct. The stairs were a bit daunting initially but we did have a lot of luggage. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was tiny but hey we were...

If you're on a budget but want to stay in the heart of Madrid, Chic and Basic Colors fits the bill perfectly. As the name implies, it's both chic and basic. The color-themed rooms were a treat and my only complaints were that the bathrooms were small and the hotel is pretty difficult to find (especially after a night of...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
