Hostal Rivera, Madrid, Spain
Tiny room, other than location, best avoided. It was difficult to find space in any other hotels

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.

Hostal Rivera, Madrid, Spain
Pros: Location was great and only 15 mins walk from central station. Loads of eating options available outside. Dominos was on opposite and McD was just 5 mins walk at the corner of street. Room was spacious and attached bathroom with tub (size was small though) Cons: Wifi was available but no range inside room. You have to be in the balcony to use the wifi. There was no kettle provided in the room for tea or coffee which was very sad. Single beds available in the room which were joined to make them double but splits very easily. Overall: Not bad if host improves the wifi signals and provide at least a kettle in room for making tea/coffee.

Nice Madrid hotel
The staff was very helpful and checked me in quickly. Only downside was both mornings the electricity was off when I woke up so I had to shower in the dark the first morning. The 2nd morning it was on & off a few times. I never found out why but staff was aware so maybe it's been fixed. Room was clean & basic.
