Madrid Accommodation Tips

A common type of guest accommodation in Spain is the so-called hostal which is not to be confused with the similar English word hostel. While a hostel usually has dormitory rooms with bunk beds, the Spanish hostal typically is a small basic hotel with double and single rooms, occupying one or two floors of a house.

Prices on this page indicate the approx. range throughout the year (per night and room for 1-2 people). During large events rates may be higher.
