Hi all. I don't post much here anymore, but felt I had to return a favour. I found Hostal Cervantes for a recent trip to Madrid through looking on the main accommodation page. It's the best place I've ever stayed at in Madrid - the prices were good (from 40Euros a room), the use of the internet on a common pc was free, and everything seemed well maintained. I also liked the location - a long way from the main madness and very quiet at night, yet close to Huertas and Sol centres. The only drawback was some building work daytime next door, which was not in the hostal's power to affect. Even so the price/value factor was exceptionally high. Highly recommended.

filbert,

In 1999 I stayed in Hostal Dulcinea across the street and I believe it has the same owners. Everything you've said about Hostal Cervantes applies to Hostal Dulcinea. A real bargain and fairly quiet, as far as street noise goes. Sometimes it was noisy in the middle of the night when other occupants of the building decided to celebrate late. I reciprocated though by making as much noise as possible when I woke up early in the morning to catch a train to Cordoba.

I stayed in the Hostal Cervantes for 2 weeks when I first arrived in Madrid ... I loved the location . The rooms were cheap and clean . The owner is a very nica and helpful guy . I would say that I had a room at the back ... Not overlooking the street and it DID get quite noisy sometimes . But overall it´s a great budget option for staying in Madrid ! Steve

Samuel,

Nothing could be simpler. Click on the hotel link above. The rate for a double is 50 euros per weekday and 55 euros per weekend. The address is Calle Cervantes 34, Madrid 28014. The email address and telephone number are on this website as well.

Just one warning. Although the location appears quiet, I was a victim of crime on Calle Cervantes. Just be careful when it appears too quiet. If no one else is out on the streets, try to leave the area immediately.
