Expert reviews of cheap hotels in Madrid
Welcome to EuroCheapo, a guide to cheap hotels in Madrid and throughout Europe.
Since 2002, our editors have been visiting, inspecting and photographing budget hotels in the best neighborhoods of Madrid. The places we've chosen as "Editor’s Picks" have certain qualities in common: They're all clean, central, cheap and, if we're lucky, have a touch of personality unique to the city.

Madrid is a feast for budget travelers, and not just because sightseeing, eating and drinking tend to be less expensive here than in other European capitals. Sleeping, too, comes affordably, as the city’s hotels, hostals, and hostels are cheaper than in many other popular Spanish destinations.
