Posada del León de Oro

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is well located in easy access to Madrid's main tourist attractions, there are some issues like the rooms at night are very noisy since the restaurant downstairs is directly connected to the rooms, fridays and Saturdays are very loud. Breakfast is very basic, I recommend eating breakfast in one of the many restaurants nearby.

The beautiful restaurant is tucked away in the end of the reception and behind the bar. One of the speciality is the cocido which is served in 2 or 3 services (soup, vegetables and meat). The price for the cocido including an excellent wine is 14,90€ per person. As an aperitif, we had some houmous and toast, the the first course of the cocido, an succulent broth with vermicelli followed by a very well garnished cocido. Second helping was also offered and so we did. That was our best meal in Madrid! Highly recommended...

Cool little place on a side street near Plaza Mayor. Four stories high over a medieval inn with the original building exposed under a glass floor. Small rooms and bathrooms, but clean with nice bedding. Delicious breakfasts and café con leche. Helpful staff. Street the Inn is on can get crowded, noisy and littered. Easy walk to Palace and Cathedral.

The hotel is okey, but does live up to its cost/price. For instance, have the staff forgotten that I am their guest or even their customer..... its a basic clean hotel, but for 180 euros...nope. The location is fine, just no its irritating that the waiter has left the building. Food is prepared before hand. No sorry...

No window to the outside and terribly noisy since the sounds from the restaurant echoes right into your room. I have never stayed in a hotel that doesn't get any natural light. also said it was a 4 star hotel when in fact it is a 3 start hotel.

I have not stayed here yet but a friend who lives not far took me, she said it serves the best G&T's in Madrid and it does, you can have tapas or just a drink, got a great wine selection and Gin of course, friendly bar staff and great location, will stay the next time I am in Madrid. Cant recommend a room but the Gins are superb ;)

Absolutely beautiful hotel room in a very good location. Free drink upon arrival was a nice touch! We were upgraded to a bigger room which was fantastic too. Very clean and quiet! Could not recommend enough

Lovely boutique hotel in a good location within walking distance to all the central features like the Palace, Cathedral and Prado Art Galley. Very helpful and friendly staff. We had breakfast which was very good. Our room was very comfortable with a good bed. Downstairs was a bar and restaurant with a see through glass floor to the cellar below - an interesting talking point. Only improvement we could see was the need for some comfy seating to relax in - perhaps the central area downstairs could be turned into more of a lounge? Thanks for a nice stay. We would come again.

Lovely comfy room. We looked out into Cava Baja, so right in the middle some fantastic bars and restaurants. We were given a welcome drink at the bar, which offers great tapas and fabulous wines and beers. You are in the a lively part of Madrid, so it can be noisy till the early hours. The room had good double glazing and aircon so you can block a lot out. Such a great location, Plaza Mayor is a short distance away.

While traveling through Spain and Portugal we chose this hotel for our one night in Madrid. It was a very cute room, and fit 4 adults comfortably. The inside of the hotel was very neat, and had a restaurant on the first floor that unfortunately we did not try. It was walking distance to everything, we only had to Uber to one spot. We would definitely stay here again!
