Hostal Rober

Recent guest reviews

Just stayed there for one night but I loved it. First location- very close to Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Royal Palace. Place was spotlessly clean. My room was ready one hour before check in time. Front desk staff always kind and very helpful. WiFi was ok but not perfect.

Small room with a small balcony to the Calle Arenal and a quite new bathroom. It is perfect if you are not looking for luxury hotels: best location and very nice owners. The beds are comfortable. They do not offer breakfast, but there are plenty of places around the hostal.

Stayed here for 2 nights a few days ago. Location is perfect for central Madrid. Hostal is on 5th floor of old building on c/ Arenal (less than 5 mins walk from Sol). Staff are very pleasant, & value is reasonable. Decoration is bright/fresh, beds fine. Our room had a very small (but functional) en suite. Walls very thin but no noise at night as far as we were aware so slept fine. No complaints. I would give this a higher rating if the price was a bit lower (50 euros per night, in my opinion, is still slightly high for a hostal) but this is a minor quibble.

Great hostal, near every major sight, 1 min walk from Palace, Teatro Real & Opera Metro Station, 5 min walk from Puerta Del Sol & Gran Via, 20 min walk from the 3 museums (Retiro), shops, department stores, churches, street artists, cafes & restaurants all around (!), great outside noise insulation (!!!), TV, comfortable room, frindly & polite people (Mar & Eduardo, thank you! - I would definately stay here again!)

I only spent one nite, and new wasn't going to be much in the room. Otherwise would have asked for another. You can see the window, that was a joke. I know it's not always certain a room has a window, so guess I got lucky. (I do not sleep in such rooms by the way.) I suppose I got the worst room, so wouldn't know about the others. I don't like having to leave the key to the reception, so not my place in that detail either. The wifi seemed to be working, as did the shower. Soap and shampoo were included. The bed seemed VERY short, and I'm 173 cm. Bearable but will not go again. No recomiendo este hostal, pero supongo - no sé- que las habitaciones doble esten mejores q la mía. La cama era cortísima! Recepción 24h se tiene q dejar la llave cuando sales. Trato normal.

Located on 5th floor (lessons street noise). Good location near two different subway lines, and many good restaurants and sites. Good price for madrid downtown. Clean, safe. You have too look careful for sign to find it. We did get swan towels on bed! Bed was comfortable.

This was my second visit to this Hostal and what a fantastic little place it is.I booked via email direct with the hotel in October 2016 and before setting off to Madrid we exchanged emails a few times regarding the kind of room I would have liked.Each email was dealt with by the hotel in a very swift manner.I asked for a room at the front of the building with a small balcony and on arrival was given room 55 which was just as I asked for.What a great little room it was.Quite small but more than ample for just me.Storage wasnt a problem and the wardrobe had more hangers in it than pretty much any hotel I have been to in the world and a very comfortable bed.Every member of staff that I encountered made me feel welcome and the location was perfect.God willing I will be back again next year.The first time I booked this hotel back in 2015 I communicated with them via email again and said that i wanted somewhere which I could call my home in Madrid and I found it.

Hostal is right in the center of Madrid (between Opera & Sol metro station). It is very clean and has comfortable beds. Rooms are small, but include all you need. The nights are quite as it is located on 5th floor. There is no other facilities but I did not need anything else beside bed and private bathroom. I was traveling solo for a few days, but I would recommend it also for couples. Would stay again here when in Madrid.

It's one of the best hostal I ever stayed. The location is great, near to everything a tourist need. Including money exchange station, metro, a lot of tourist sight, and even some shopping store and great restaurants. It's close to open station and Sol station. The environment is super super super clean!! They clean your room everyday along ot just the same the day you moved in! Only with your luggage inside already. And the room also offer a safe box. The reception desk opens 24 hour and people there are friendly. They'll love to answer you any question. Really recommended!!

The reception is opened 24 hours. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to visit Madrid. All interesting places are in range few minutes (for example Plaza Mayor). Metro stations Sol or Opera are very close. You can find many bars in the neighborhood to eat tasty breakfast. The hostel is located on the 5th floor. There is a lift to reach the hostel. The room as well as bathroom were small. But I was alone therefore it was enough for me. I was in the winter time. The room was equipped with central heater and additionally there was a warm blanket. I spent here only 2 days (room 59) in January, 2017. The room was cleaned every day. The ratio quality to price is very good. I recommend this place for short visit in Madrid.
