Sleeping in Madrid

Tons of hotels, air bnbs…all that you would expect from a major European city.

We stayed at the Hostal Central Palace Madrid.

Don’t let the word “Hostal” throw you..this isn’t your backpacker’s hostel by any means.  The hotel is discreetly set into a building that borders the massive and stunning Royal Palace of Madrid. 

It’s one of those buildings with a huge door, that would require multiple manservants to open, but it also has a human size door  for your everyday use. Inside the little courtyard are lovely crystal chandeliers, and at the rear, up a few steps, the elevator (or “lift” if you prefer.)

There is a tiny reception area, with genuinely warm and friendly people working at the desk. Our greeter gave us accurate city information, good restaurants, recommendations where to walk, and where not to walk.

We were given Room #502 because we aren’t afraid of walking up stairs, and that’s a good thing.  Room 502 has an amazing private roof top terrace where the whole city lays at your feet.  The room was spotless, comfortable, adequate closet space, big bathroom, very quiet and charming. Also great sheets on the bed.

Highly recommend, but a bit pricey.
