Say “Hola!” to a great variety of budget hotels in Madrid.
Hostal La Perla Asturiana is a clean, low-cost hotel with small but comfortable rooms. Surrounded by many cheap restaurants, also nearby is Medina Mayrit, an Arabic spa, where you can have a massage or a dip in one of the baths. Perfumed and peaceful, the spa is equipped with a marble steam room and a tea room.
Hostal Asunción is another well-located, low-cost hotel, minutes away from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Colón. Take in the view from the terrace while using the free Wi-Fi Internet. The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, arguably the top site to see in Madrid.
Hostal La Vera prides itself in being a former residence of the Dukes of Santoña. But you don’t need a nobleman’s budget to stay here; this friendly Madrid hotel treats the budget traveller as a special guest. The hotel is located near Casa Patas, Flamenco en Vivo, so you can enjoy the nightlife while witnessing the 'Queen of Flamenco', Sara Bara, dance the night away.
For a basic, fuss-free stay, Hostal Arti I is the place, located on Gran Vía 76. The rooms are cosy and colourful, and facilities include heating, an elevator, and an in-house restaurant. It even has an allergy-free room! For a glass of sherry and a plate of tapas, go to nearby La Venecia, a hole-in-the-wall which has delighted customers for decades. Hostal Arti II is another low-cost hotel nearby, with the Cathedral of the Almudena and the Temple of Debod a short walk away.
