First off, let's settle the name issue. In Spanish, "TIJCAL" stands for "Work, Equality, Justice, Culture, Friendliness, and Liberty." Move over Best Western—this place promises an ideology!
We stayed at the Hostal Tijcal I in spring 2002, and then revisited almost exactly two years later. The room we had stayed in before, along with most of the hostal, had been given a makeover. The floor was freshly tiled floor, the bathroom had been renovated, and there was a pleasing new paint job. All renovated rooms had air-conditioning units installed. They even hung a Van Gogh print on the wall. (Well, somebody got fancy on us!)
Owners Gabriel, Marcelo, and Ramon have put a lot of time, hard work, and fresh paint into their endeavor. The Tijcal's 31 rooms are painted in bright, happy hues and equipped with private facilities. Fourteen of these have views, and, possibly, balconies (make sure to ask ahead). Best of all, the hostal is located just steps from Madrid's famous Plaza Mayor, making it one of the most convenient hostals on our site.
