Great value, great location

Much better than we'd expected. Our room, 101, had been recently and thoughtfully redecorated and had a lovely compact shower room. Initially we were disappointed that we didn't have a balcony, but being at the rear of the hotel meant that it was very quiet at night. Bed was comfortable. Flat screen TV on the wall. Good wifi. Location is right by Opera metro station - very handy for travel around the city (Galleries, Bernabeu), and a stone's throw from major sights like the palace. Also easily walkable to La Latina and the Plaza Mayor and all the central districts. We thought the price was great for what we got and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Great location

Great location. My single room was extremely small for the price. However, the location makes this "hostal" worthy.

Hostal Oriente Madrid

The hotel is in a great location. The staff was very friendly and room always clean. The wifi worked great and was surprisingly fast for Spain, we were traveling for business so this was a great plus.

A Brief but Exquisite Interlude from Hectic Daily Life

The hotel is small but very clean and comfortable, and the staff were all so helpful that I just relaxed as I have not in a long while. The location could not have been better, as the hotel is set in the heart of Madrid's main tourist spots, an easy walk to the cathedral, the palace, and the Prado, etc., etc.; and this is a closed pedestrian street full of eateries and shopping. The Spaniards were all so nice and friendly. I had been told all of these things but was still shocked at how very wonderful the experience was. Wish that my trip had been for a longer period of time.

Great location

The location and proximity to Puerta del Sol was great. Room facing the street can only be described as noisy; we were tired and able to sleep with earplugs. Staff was helpful and took pride in their establishment.

Just walk outside and several promoters will offer you free drinks just to check out their bars or clubs. Also check our Plaza Major for awesome tapas.

PERFECT!

I was my first time at a hostel and I have to say it was great! It's seriously close to everything you want to see! It's right in the center of the city! Only problem is that the check in time is at noon and my flight got in around 9 so I was there at 10 and had to leave my bags and go out to lunch and walk around so I was scared of leaving them there (I dont know why, just was) but it's cool. the lights and power in the room are operated by your key card to the room so you can't charge anything while you are out. Only problem: thin walls, you can hear muffled conversations and intimate moments haha

Great location

Hostal is minutes away from major attractions and it's located right across the Metro station. The room is very clean and staff is friendly. My single room is a bit small but for the price I can't complain much.
