Liked the size and comfort of the room which had great views over the river and the lovely Casa de Campo park.
The hotel staff were always very polite and helpful. Although we didn't have a cooked breakfast the buffet looked to cover most tastes. We had an evening meal just once but the choice was good and the food delicious and very, very reasonable.
We were lucky enough to be in Madrid when the Fringe Festival was on and one of the venues was almost directly across from our room. Although the stage was mostly hidden by the trees we could hear all of the music and enjoyed sitting on the balcony listening to it every night before retiring.
If going back to Madrid would definitely use this hotel again.
"Very nice hotel only 0.5 miles to plaza de espana"
Would have given 5/5 rating except that their wifi was not working during our stay.
Arrived at 9:30 AM AND THEY GAVE US THE ROOMS TIGHT AWAY. Very close to all major shopping and metro.
Only 30 Euros on taxi cab from Airport to hotel.
In the north part of the city, close to Metro stop Arguelles. Plenty of walking distance restaurants/bars. Room was clean and functional, although AC struggled from time to time. Decent breakfast. Overall it was a nice hotel for budget travel.
The hotel is in a great location and is good value for money. Our host was really helpful, speaking good English, and giving us lots of ideas of places to visit while in Madrid. The room was regularly cleaned with fresh towels provided each day. Toiletries provided were basic, and there was no holder for the shower head which made it a little bit awkward to use. Not all the rooms have balconies or patios as stated on the Expedia site, and as has been mentioned in previous reviews there is no lift. However, for the price paid this hotel was a good pick.
Nice hotel close to everything, staff is very helpful Fernando and the manager Oscar are very customer friendly.
On my second night an alarm went on at a neighbor's place for almost three hours during the night but I think it's part of the game to have noise if you want to stay near the Center.
Traveller from Montreal, Qc
Gallardo Hostal offers budget accomodation in the center of Madrid , at only a few steps from the popular Puerta del Sol …More
I really loved the place. The bathroom was small but i had of my own at the price i paid. The room was good enough for my stay. It is really close to the metro. Only there is no big sign to see where it is. Someone helped me find it . Overall it is a good place to stay.
In the east, overlooked by the retro-looking silver transmission tower, the restful Parque del Oeste contains fir trees and students relaxing on the grass (thanks to the nearby universities). Catch a cable car across the Manzanares river to the Casa de Campo, or watch sunset from a terrace on lively Paseo del Pintor Rosales or the Templo del Debod. The bus station is a major hub for the north-west.
