Deep in the heart of Madrid beats the Hostal La Macarena. This cozy, tastefully decorated two-star is the perfect place for those who don't want to travel very far from their room to be near the action: It's located directly across from the popular Plaza Mayor. You also won't have to go very far to find Spanish fare: La Macarena is surrounded by tapas bars and traditional restaurants.
Most of the Macarena's 25 comfortable, intimate rooms have wrought iron balconies facing the beautiful, windy medieval streets of Madrid's center. (Only five face the interior.) All rooms are kitted out with new furniture and a perfectly peachy-pink color scheme. (Think salmon-colored curtains and linens with peach painted walls.)
The bathrooms are clean—they're disinfected every day—and come with soap and even full-sized bathtubs! (You may be tempted to balk at our enthusiasm, but complimentary soap and lounge-worthy tubs are unusual in Madrid hostels. Trust us.)
José at the front desk will help with anything you want, even in English.
