Great three days in Madrid
The stay was nice and pleasant. Great location just two blocks away from Gran Vía. The only inconvenience was the lack of an elevator, the stairs were a bit uncomfortable. Not a big deal for me but it was for my 67 years old mother. Aside from that, I would recommend it. It’s right for the price.

8/10 Very good

Well, I liked the quaint element of the hostal. Its like being in a piece of history or a reminder of it. Not a modern, plush place but classic with a few, modern touches. NO bedbugs, mice or any other crawlers. I'm thrilled with that. No Air Conditioning Unit but a high ceiling fan was in the room and working if needed. They serve basic foods for a free, continental breakfast. I like that the small, dining room is set for all the guests who eat, dine together. Its like a community of sorts. The downside is that there are no elevators so one would have to walk to the hotel's 4th floor location but I was fine with that. Overall, im satisfied with my stay. The price was right. I felt at home and would stay there again.

Arty party trip topper!
La Dolce Vita is a lovely place to stay - vibrant, funky and great location. Tasty self-serve breakfast with rocket fuel coffee. Lovely secret roof terrace away from the bustle and steps from Plaza Paulo Zerolo with cafes and bars, performers from breakfast to late night cocktails - but all closes at 130am to aid a restful sleep! Highly recommend!!
