I just heard from Alberto at Hostal Adriano/Adria that the city has approved the elevator, which was the last hurdle. The work will start in September.

I just heard from Enrique that construction has begun on the elevator! I have a reservation in early December and I will update then.

I was just in Madrid for four wonderful days (got back yesterday) and I stayed in a youth hostel just off of Atocha not far from Huertas. I loved it and I felt completely safe. As a single female traveler, I always have my guard up and I have never felt unsafe in this part of town. Having said that, I lived in Madrid several years ago and noticed a lot more police around this time. Maybe crime is up but I certainly didn't feel it -- I just sat back and enjoyed Madrid.

Hi Chinch! Welcome to our message board!

Did you, by chance, intend to reply to the " Madrid HUERTAS good for solo (sola) traveler? " thread?

Mongo, I'm HAPPY to hear the great news about construction on the elevator.

Saludos, MadridMan

A rumor has reached my ears that actual work has resumed on the elevator at Hostal Adriano . Not to jinx it, but hope may be on the way!

Cross your fingers that it'll actually happen this time. They've/We've been waiting SUCH a long time. ¡Tocar Madera!

Saludos, MadridMan

I stayed at the Hostal Adriano last week and can happily report that the framing for the elevator is in place and construction is in progress! Though I have no idea when it will be completed.

While comfirming my fall reservtions at The Adriano, Alberto informed me that the elevator was actually operating until a part malfunctioned. They are waiting for the part (August vacation has delayed it) and expect to have it done in a week or two.

Cross your fingers, this is the closest we have been! smile
