I've been checking both of these hostals out on various websites and was wondering if anyone had any feedback about either of these places.

Hostal Nuria & Hospedaje Dolce Vita are practically "equidistant" to Puerta del Sol/Plaza Mayor and both rather close to the Plaza de Chueca. I'm liking this area more and more. Very happening and MUCH improved in safety and "cleanliness" in the last 10-15 years.

Are you going this summer? If so, it seems that Hospedaje Dolce Vita DOES NOT have air conditioning but Hostal Nuria does in "most of its rooms". This should be a serious consideration when choose a room in the summer.

Have you conducted a SEARCH on this message board (and others). Make the search simple, using keywords like MADRID NURIA or MADRID DOLCE. If you do stay at one of these place (or other), we - and future travelers - would appreciate your own personal review. Thanks and good luck!

Saludos, MadridMan

I stayed at hostal Nuria the 1st time we went to Madrid, it was ok, not luxury by any means, in fact very basic, and the toilets/washing room was not very nice, but it was fine for what we wanted, i.e a place to leave our bags and to sleep in. two of our party wanted to leave as soon as we got there because it was so basic, but we managed to eprsuade them to stay. They wouldn't stay agin though, but they are used to hotels. We ate in the dining room, which was ok, but only had breakfast one morning and saw the pamplona bull run on TV there. The people there seemed friendly enough.
We had to be out of the room every day by about 10/11am I think so that the cleaner could come in. (Not great when you didn't get back until the early hours!!)
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.
