One of two hotels we've visited in Madrid that claim to be the oldest in Spain, this three-star hotel is a classic choice that has managed to keep its rates low. Here's a bit of trivia: Spain's president Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero stayed here shortly before landing his current job.
The problem with older hotels is so often the question of maintenance. At the Inglés, hallways seem ignored and uninviting, though the hotel's 58 rooms are far more appealing. Comfy mattresses, tasteful artwork, and fresh paint jobs keep things looking attractive. In addition, flat-panel televisions, modern bathrooms fitted with the latest showerheads, and shaving mirrors are all special touches. The clean, attractive quilts on the matrimonial (twin) beds are new.
For an additional €20, guests can land a suite with its own salon and balcony overlooking a narrow street leading from Huertas. Bars, cafés, and other points of interests are just steps away. Breakfast is not included in the nightly rate, although the cafeteria serves breakfast in the morning for €5.

About the Hotel Ingles neighborhood
This tiny but central neighborhood with two names is is jam-packed with people, attractions and excitement. Also known as Barrio de las Letras (or "Neighborhood of the Letters"), it was a hot spot for literary gents of Madrid's Golden Age, and remnants of literary life still abound, including the Mueseo Cervantino, the Ateneo library and plenty of theaters and bars.
