Hostal Fuentesol2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Located in the very center of the city at the edge of the Puerta del Sol, almost all the main attractions of Madrid are in walk distances. At night could be noisy. You could easily reach the Grand Via or the Retiro Park and the main museums. There are all kind of restaurants in the neighbourhood. The rooms are small, the towels are not really clean but the hostal is a good option for a few nights stand.
Location is absolutely perfect in the center of Madrid. Good WiFi. Air Conditioning. Can be noisy especially by night. Old furniture. Basic amenities. Towels were changed after 2-3 days. You get 3 keys, one for the Building entrance door, one for the entrance in the Guesthouse and one for the room.
It is a fine place if you opt to stay at the Hostal only to sleep and wash. Location is the highlight of this place since is it very close to most of the main attractions. The place is very old and tends to be noisy especially on a Saturday night. However, the room was nicely heated and the staff tries its best to keep the place tidy. Considering the bargain price it is worth staying. The small bath inside the room is a bit awkward.
We were in this hostel for 5 nights, three of us. First of all, they were doing some major electricity maintenance and every day either the lights or A/C was off. As none of the staff speak English, it certainly wasn't easy dealing with problematic situations. Wi-fi worked at times. They only give you one set of keys which makes it hard to part ways, as you can't even buzz yourself in - you need one of the THREE keys for the main door. Beds uncomfortable and barely stayed together. Towels as old as my grandmother. Isolation non-existing, glad we had ear plugs. Very cheap hotel but for the first time, even if I really don't expect much from a bargain hotel, this was probably the worst ever. And we only needed place to sleep, get changed and have showers. Even that seemed like a lot of effort. So shame, as the location is absolutely perfect.
I read reviews regarding this place as clean, a good bargain. Unfortunately, I didn't know the signs of bed bugs and I closed the drapes and took a nap. A few hours later, I had a full-blown infestation of bed bugs. I moved hostels immediately, but brought them with me in my luggage. I have spent days trying to get rid of them but they are incredibly resistant. For the price, it was not worth any bit of the hassle or frustration.
This was one of the best hotel during my trip in Europe. The price is a real bargain, you get a clean room, enough space for 2 persons. you got a balcony, very close to Puerta Del Sol, you can easily find a place to eat here. one thing that you need to put attention is that the staffs speak no English. I would stay here again if I visit Madrid.
Inmejorable ubicación, cerca de la plaza mayor,a 3 cuadras de puerta de sol. Zona de restaurantes y bares, con mucho ruido en la calle. Muy buen trato el personal, sin dudas volvería. Cruzando la calle, en la esquina está el Museo del jamón, venden fiambres al peso para llevar, también hay barra donde se puede tomar una cerveza y picar algo, en el primer piso hay restorant para pedir a la carta.
Si vas sólo a dormir y a ducharte se puede salvar. Y ni eso si me apuras. Cuando estuve a las 7 a.m. Aprox empezaron a dar voces como una discusión en el pasillo. Claro... Lo mismo hay gente que madruga para trabajar pero muchos de los que nos alojamos ahí estamos de vacaciones y no queremos que nos despierten. Lo nunca visto. Salí del hostal con migraña y dando gracias de nunca más volver ahí. Uno asume que sea ruidoso por estar en el centro de Madrid, lo que uno no tiene que aceptar es que los que regentan este sitio sean unos maleducados. Sobre todo la señora de origen sudamericano habla que parece que tiene un altavoz en el estómago. Horrible. Jamás volveré. No merece la pena por barato que sea. Hostal biarritz mucho mejor que este. Al menos el personal es más educado.
Scelto in primis per la posizione e per il prezzo. La camera ed il bagno erano piuttosto piccoli, anche se sommariamente puliti. Fantastica la posizione, a due passi da Puerta del Sol. Consigliato per soggiorni brevi e senza troppe pretese.
Ubicación inmejorable, en pleno centro de la ciudad. Me alojé en una habitación interior por lo que el ruido era imperceptible, pero las habitaciones exteriores a la calle aparentaban ser bastante ruidosas. La habitación sencilla con todo lo necesario. Limpio y simple. Buena atención a la llegada, a pesar de que llegué muy tarde. Tienen wifi gratuita que funcionaba a la perfección. Si estás buscando un lugar de paso donde simplemente dormir es una gran opción ya que el precio para la localización del hotel no está mal.
