 "Great Hotel"
We had a 3 night stay at the hotel and found it really good. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was good for all the sights of Madrid, which could be reached by walking. Excellent value.

 "Perfect Ballesta"
The Ballesta is perfect for travellers on a budget,it's location off The Gran Via is ideal,the rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful.There are many cafes nearby for breakfast and the nearest Metro station is a short walk away. Do not hesitate to book this hostal, there is no downside.

 "Conditioning is quite impressive"
Pros: Conditioning is quite impressive.

Cons: To whom is looking for prostitutes - this is the best hotel. i had to say it over and over: "russo turisto - obliko morale!"
no breakfast. poor english of the stuff.
the acoustic is that i heard like somebody was been sneezing in another room as it would be in my one.
