Clean but very dated
This would be an amazing place to stay if they updated and replaced linens with holes. Otherwise, no faults.

Quiet hotel in the busy street.
The hotel itself is located in the busy street in the center of the city. The location is great, close to everything - the train station, museums, parks. I stayed in a very clean room. The windows faced the inner yard, so it was very quiet all night. There was no coffee maker, nor fridge in the room, the furniture was not too new, but for the price I paid, it was more than acceptable. It's OK to stay for one night. Might use it again.

Nice smallish room with balcony
Excellent location, walking distance from Atocha station and Sol, and just a few steps to metro station Anton Martin. Room not big but quite cozy has everything to meet a traveller's basic needs. My room had a small balcony to take in sunshine and views of Calle Atocha. Friendly host. It was nice for my overnight stay in Madrid.

Good 6.0
Arrived 30mins before check-in time and left luggage with owner. Returned 40mins later and my bag was open! Owner couldn't understand English when I was questioning him about it. Room itself was clean and basic but the owner/service was appalling. Spent one night and couldn't wait to get out of there. Changed accommodation for the rest of my Madrid stay.

It's ok but not great
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was not very comfortable. Wifi only available in common area. Lift/Elevator extremely small. Online it states rooms available as of noon but it's not the case. Because checkout is noon, the rooms are available for checkin closer to 1-2pm. The cleaning lady was really nice and got started on our room right away but she wasn't happy about it. Wish the check in time was updated for future travelers.

Great option close to Atocha train station
This place was just what I needed for my one night stay in Madrid: very close to the Atocha train station and to Madrid center, simple buy cozy room, very clean, allowed me to check in at 1pm, which I really needed. If you need something simple, affordable and well located, this is the place.
