Hostal Las Cortes2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location is incredibly convenient as it is in the city centre but expect no frills whatsoever. Having said that the room was clean, though a little 'tired'. The bed was clean and reasonably comfortable so it is a place to get your head down for a night or two but I wouldn't recommend a long stay. No security so take any valuables out with you!!!
First, as others have said, there is no sign on the street for this hostel. However the cab driver knew exactly where it was. The location is excellent, you can walk to almost everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The ac worked great, which was still needed in late September. The bathroom was small, even by European standards, and the towels were a bit threadbare. The beds were quite hard. Overall, I had a nice stay.
Expedia needs to remove this property from its inventory. Stayed 11 miserable nights from 5-12 thru 5-23. Bed needs to be thrown away, lots of black mold at the base of the shower, Towels are more like think napkins, was given a towel that was full of holes. No sign to this property (except for a label on the directory), no elevator, halls are dark, place is dingy, dated and noisy. I knew it was 2 star when I booked, but I at least expect clean and it wasn't.
I booked this location for three nights (double bedroom) because they had a good deal on booking.com. The location really can't be beat. I took the airport bus to Plaza de Cibeles and it was only a short walk from there. Fortunately, I had read the reviews on tripadvisor and knew to look for the Hostal Oporto sign, as there was no sign for Hostal Las Cortes except for on the doorbell, which isn't the first place most people look. My brother who had arrived before me had a difficult time finding it because of this. They also did not have the room ready when he arrived that evening. The pros: beds were comfortable, wifi worked well, we had a tv and microwave, and a small breakfast was provided in the room. The breakfast consisted of juice, milk, tea/hot chocolate, cereal, and cookies. It was good to have in the morning before our day started. We also had a window to let in fresh air. It is also situated on a quiet street. The cons: the shower curtain barely functioned as one and the shower didn't work too well, the toilet would make strange, loud noises, and there would be an odd smell in there occasionally. I think it needs an upgrade. Overall, the price can't be beat for what you get and how close it is to everything. They just need a better sign outside!
We took a quadruple room as we were 2 couples. This is located right about this vegetarian restaurant called Al Natural Vegetariano. The only signboard you can see is of Hostel Oporto. This BnB is on the second floor of the building and you could easily miss it without this piece of information. Pros : Affordable, centre of the city (walkable from Museo del Prado), packed breakfast (of milk, hot chocolate, coffee powder, muesli, jams, croissants) kept (included in the room cost) along with a microwave, maintained neatly. Cons : The room was a weird shape with one double bed and 2 single beds (in another attached smaller room). Bathroom was quite tiny too. And there was almost no extra space to keep our luggage. And biggest issue - no elevator. We had to carry our heavy bags up two flights of stairs which was quite painful.
The hostal is situated smack in the heart of Madrid. A little tricky to find, but once found, a little gem. Size of the room was plenty for what we needed. The bathroom was tiny, but hey, you're only in there to shower/wash and use the loo. The walls are a little thin, so heard a lot of high heels on tiled floors and doors banging. Breakfast was put in the room each day whilst you were out and about ready for the morning and there was plenty of it. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms cleaned daily. Overall a good stay.
Had a bit of difficulty finding it as the sign says hostel Oporto (which is the same reception) you have to look at the door buzzers to find the Cortes. Really clean room, not bad size, good shower. Really helpful staff - told us where the best bars were - be careful - rarely any prices up in tavernas and the price can vary from 1.50 for a beer to 7 euros from bars right next to each other...great stay - thank you guys
El hostal tiene una serie de aspectos muy positivos. Primeramente una ubicación increible. El precio es realmente bajo para lo que se ofrece, por lo que hay que valorar una buena relación calidad precio. La habitación no es pequeña, tiene aire acondicionado y la zona no es muy ruidosa. La atención por parte del personal no fue desagradable. También creo que hay que decir que la habitación estaba limpia y que se ofrecía cambio de toallas a dispoción del cliente. Ahora pasemos a valorar una serie de aspectos a mejorar que creo que la dirección del hostal debería mejorar. Primeramente, de vez en cuando se oyen ruidos muy fuertes que deben proceder de cañerías o cisternas. Un día me despertó uno de esos ruidos, algo que no es demasiado agradable. La conexión a internet no es la mejor, básicamente porque se cae de vez en cuando y no tiene una velocidad pasmosa. Aún así se agradece. La parte de abajo del armario empotrado estaba desconchada, parecía que algo de humedad había causado estragos en el armario, aunque el problema originario estaba solucionado no se habían solventado los desperfectos que había causado. En general he quedado bastante satisfecho con el servicio porque simplemente necesitaba una cama donde dormir unas cuantas noches, pero si se mejoraran algunos de los aspectos que he comentado el hostal podría merecerse perfectamente un 4/5 porque tiene grandes ventajas sobre otros alojamientos.
In de herfstvakantie van 2016 bezocht, het hotel was een stofnest met paardendekens op de bedden. De "badkamer" was zeer basic en de douche stroomde alleen door als je het toilet gelijktijdig doorspoelde. We hebben hier 1 nacht geslapen omdat we 's avonds laat uitgeput aan waren gekomen en hebben 's morgens meteen een ander hotel geboekt. Absoluut geen aanrader!
Ragazzi questo ostello è molto centrale vi permetterà di visitare tutte le attrazioni più importanti di Madrid, è accogliente, è pulito, gode di wifi e aria condizionata(un elica non condizionatore), la reception vende acqua e altre bevande a prezzo conveniente, unica pecca nel bagno non c'è il bidet.
