Hi all,

I was hoping someone might suggest an area or hotel that would best accommodate me. I am traveling alone to Spain and am looking for a good hotel that will be no more than $125 a night. I have been to Madrid before (loved it) but I am looking for a place that is safe and central for a young woman on her own!

Hello Kells,

You don't say when you are arriving so the price of the hotel will vary depending if you're coming on the weekend, Summer or Winter. Off the top of my head, I would suggest looking at: Best Western Hotel Carlos, Hotel Liabeny, Petit Palace Londres, Petit Palace Posada del Peine.

Good luck. If you need more help don't hesitate to ask. This is the best site for all things Spain!

When I stayed in Madrid on my own, I was at the Hostal Persal. The location can't be beat and it was probably a little below your price range.

A friend of mine is also planning on spending 2 nights in Madrid before coming up to Santiago to visit me this summer, so I have been researching hotels for her as well. I came up with two hotels that seem good and centrally located for visiting some of the major sites.

Hotel Miau http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g187514-d599697-Reviews-Hotel_Miau-Madrid.html

hotel Liabeny

I would suggest my favorite Hostal in Madrid, Hostal Adriano, but for a woman alone it may not be the best choice considering the block where it is located has many prostitutes. The last time I was in Madrid, in March, as I was waiting outside the hostal for MM, I was solicited by some guy walking down the street. I just started laughing but now I would think twice about recommending it to a woman traveling alone, unfortunately.

Anyway, good luck searching out hotels. And enjoy your visit to Madrid!!

I can recommend a place I have stayed at three times already and will be there again for my upcoming trip to Madrid, Hostal Acapulco.

Why?Not what I would call central, past Atocha,not convenient to walk to anywhere of interest! Safe?
That's why are rarely make suggestion about hotels..........!

Hi Crisco! I'm not sure I understand what you mean. I prefer it was near Atocha, I am using the train on more than one occasion and I am good with the metro (I have been to Madrid before) but my primary concern is, is it safe.

never been in AC Carlton but part of Marriott so should be ok. the area is in typical Madrid away from most tourists. Better look into that area for inmersion. You are not far from embajadores so its ok area.And past Atocha is Prado,no worries.
cheers
