Hello lawguy625! Welcome to our All Spain Message Board!
Most all hostels will accept reservations in English by email. Just keep it very simple like:
"Do you have a room available?"
Date of arrival: April 11th
Time of arrival: 3:00pm
Number of nights: 3
Number of people: 1
While the below three aren't the ONLY ones which are next to the Plaza Mayor they're the only ones which come to mind. They all have English-language versions and online English reservation request forms too: Hostal Residencia TIJCAL
gets good reviews and is UP AGAINST the Plaza Mayor. AHEM! 39-53 (gulp!) Euros for a single. Hostal La Perla Asturiana
is also right up against the Plaza Mayor. 33 Euros for a single. Hostal Cruz Sol
is across the small plaza outside the Plaza Mayor. 36 Euros for a single.
You can likely find previously posted reviews about all three by using the SEARCH link in the upper righthand corner. Use keywords like MADRID TIJCAL
or MADRID ASTURIANA
or MADRID CRUZ SOL
All those I have listed on MadridMan\'s Madrid Hostels
page are located in/around the old city center, most all of them are within walking distance from the Plaza Mayor.
Good luck and have a great time! Saludos, MadridMan
