As a young couple from Canada, Kelowna, B.C., travelling thru Spain,this Hostel was well located close to Puerta Del Sol - making it easy to move around the city. one thing - we arrived late and we were very confused on how to get into the hotel. WHen we were dropped off we couldnt figure out how to get into the Lobby and what to do to reach the lobby (which is actually on the 2nd floor so take the stairs up to the 2nd floor to check in). Otherwise great location and excellent room - very modern but there was a Glass door on the hotel washroom...not the most private.

Cheap and with a perfect position just in the middle of the city. It's not a 5 stars hotel and is just an Hostel. But in a general view everything is good. A useful space to leave the bags near the reception. Attention, noise all the night from the street, but this is part of Madrid. I will retourn..

We really enjoyed our stay at Marlasca. The location was perfect, if busy. We walked to all the major attractions and there were plenty of places to relax and eat nearby. It is noisy, but it seems that this is the norm in this part of town. We were not overly bothered. When the windows were closed it wasn't too bad. Great place!

This was a lot better than I expected for a Hostel. Very clean rooms, friendly staff and comfy beds. We had a triple room and had our own bathroom. Very central location and although it is in a lively ish cafe area, we heard some noise outside but it didn't stop us from sleeping at all. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a base for a short trip to Madrid.

For a capital city the hotel was really good value at 35euros. I only stayed one night but the hotel was close to a pedestrian area of cafes and bars and close to the subway and buses. My room was absolutely fine for the price, 2 beds, with a nice modern bathroom. The hotel is quiet, a little dark but really no complaints for the price in August.

In the very heart of the city, Puerta del Sol, Marlasca offers a very good relationship between price and quality. Clean and really quiet, just to avoid inner rooms, as they have windows onto a restaurant. Complete bathrooms in all the rooms. Breakfast not included, but it is not necessary to have it in the hotel in Madrid: better to go out and have a magnificent desayuno!

We stayed 8 nights but our room was bare and lacked seating for 2. Upon looking at other rooms I was disapointed with ours because the other rooms were decorated and had seating for 2. We had an outside room so the street noise woke us up quite often. We were happy with the location. It is located in the heart of Madrid just a short walk from Plaza del Sol and attractions are easily accessable with a short stroll or quick Metro ride. We used the train and Metro quite often because it was conviently located at Sol. An internet cafe and laundry were just a 2 minute walk away and for the crafter, it is close to awesome fabric and linen shops. Check out Borca. We love Madrid. We recommend this hotel but don't take room 451...or any outside room if you are easily disturbed. Madrid never sleeps.

Il mio pernottamente presso l'Hostal Marlasca è stato, in fin dei conti, soddisfacente. Forse soprattutto perchè in camera ci sono stato pochissimo. Nulla da eccepire sulla pulizia della camera: nemmeno un granello di polvere. Ma la mobilia era abbastanza decadente (letto inclinato, tipo Torre di Pisa)ed il bagno estremamente piccolo, anche per una persona di media statura. Le camere al primo piano sono in pratica accanto alla reception, quindi si sentono in continuazione citofoni, turisti che chiedono informazioni o telefoni che squillano. Un punto forte, almeno dal mio punto di vista, è la presenza del wi-fi a disposizione dei clienti con un proprio pc portatile.

We stayed here twice, first time were given a smallish quiet room at the back (photo of room on their card)Is is very central, in the heart of the tapas area. On the second stay on the way home we had a normal sized room divided in half with a very thin wall and could hear everything going on next door. We faced the street and it was horribly noisy all night, every night. The window wouldn't close properly, nor the shutters and the shower didn't work properly. Left the hotel tired and ratty and the end of a lovely holiday.

Good location, warm staff by Spanish standards. For an economy lodging I would stay here again. Downside was being directed to use the 1-900 'easy calling' number provided by the payphone as it was posted here and at other Spanish hotels. A 12 minute call to Canada cost $90., ..more than one night's accomodation her. I suspect there is a kick-back to the hotel owner.

Really important to ask for room in back, away from street. The place is rockin until all hours and the rush hour traffic starts up the noise again early. We slept fine in the front, however, with earplugs. Andres at the front desk, in particular, was exceptionally friendly, helpful, and he spoke English. Side street Calle Victoria had a wonderful selection of old-time tascas, two or three handy locutorios were nearby on Cruz and San Jeronimo (the best one, first (i.e. second) floor, .08 E/minute to the states, .50 E/15 minutes internet, on Jeronimo btwn Victoria and Pl. Canalejas, which is at end of C. Cruz).

The Hostel is in a perfect location, next to Sol, so right in the centre within walking distance from Plaza Mayor and other central attractions. The air conditioning was very useful as we had quite a warm weather in Madrid. The TV set was really small and old, only with Spanish channels, but enough for us. We would recommend it for people who don't expect a high luxury for this money and for the location. We'd stay there again without any doubt.

Posizione centralissima (a metà strada tra puerta del sol e plaza santa ana) nel pieno centro della movida. Stanze abbastanza ampie con arredamento a metà tra il molto vecchio (letto, divano) e il nuovissimo (armadio, bagno). La pensione è al secondo piano ma ha anche stanze al quarto (dove prima c'era l'hostal los angeles di cui sono ancora visibili le insegne all'esterno). Alcune stanze al quarto piano al momento sono in completa ristrutturazione per cui c'è un rumore infernale fin dalle prime ore del mattino.

The room was centrally located but faced the street and was loud! The character of the room had potential but the furniture looked like it was picked up odds and ends. We couldn't get a spare towel as the cleaning service holds onto them. Toilet ran all night. If I were out of college and backpacking thru Europe I wouldn't these things. However, I stayed in rooms about the same rate with a much better experience. It was OK but I would not recommend unless on a budget and you don't mind noise. Oh yes, the lobby area and the workers were so loud - very rude for the guests.

The biggest problem is that, at first, we were given a room which is actually in the lobby. On the other side, the street, we is terrible at night, full of drunk people shouting. Therefore, the first night we didn't sleep at all. We ask for to change room for the second night and they gave us another one, upstairs (the stair seems to be falling at any time). The room was smaller, but at least we could not hear the noise of the lobby, we were not so lucky regarding the noise from the street. At all, rooms are ok, but don't plan on sleeping.

Io e mia moglie siamo arrivati in hotel alle 10.00 di sera, con una bimba di 7 mesi e quindi avevamo bisogno di acqua bollente per il latte in polvere, il signore ch'era alla ricezione è stato molto disponibile, in una mezz'ora ci ha procurato l'acqua calda, fin qui tutto bene, tranne che il giorno dopo chiediamo ancora acqua calda per il termos, ma la signora ch'è in portineria c'informa che non è un servizio che offre l'hotel e che dobbiamo andarcela a cercare da un'altra parte. Stiamo parlando di acqua bollente, non mi sembra un servizio eccezionale, no? Le lenzuola delle camere vengono cambiate ogni due o tre giorni, e vabbè, diciamo che uno si può anche adattare, ma l'apice lo tocchiamo l'ultimo giorno. Non avendo una sveglia e dovendo prendere un aereo al mattino presto chiediamo se ci possono chiamare alle 5.30, cosa normalissima in qualsiasi hotel: evidentemente non al Marlasca. Quello che mi fa arrabbiare è che preferivo che mi dicevano ch'era un altro servizio che non avevano ed invece mi sono svegliato per caso alle 6.15, e abbiamo dovuto fare una corsa per raggiungere l'aereoporto. Ma non è finita, perchè al Marlasca hanno un bel cagnone di taglia che vaga per i corridoi e che ci troviamo nella hall prima di andare via? Nientemeno (e questa è una cosa che non mi è mai successa da nessuna parte) che una bella collezione di escrementi di cane. Potete andare in questo hotel, almeno consapevoli di quello che potreste incontrare. Buon viaggio.

rapporto prezzo/qualità/ubicazione perfetto. Le camere non sono grandissime ma sono pulite. appena si entra nel palazzo c'è odore di fritto ma poi nelle camere non arriva.

Beautiful room, excellent service, and helpful staff. The room was extremely clean and spacious. The washroom was surprisingly spacious as well and well maintained. Location is in central Madrid with the subway station very close to the location of the Hostal.

This is the third time i stay at his little hotel, because it´s location is excellent. My only sugestion is about the stairs to the second floor is in wood and the construction does not appear to be solid. I think that could be improved since there is enough space.

Very nice hotel although the rooms are small and noisy. If I return to Madrid I would choose the same hotel because the location is perfect.

I stayed at Marlasca for the last way of November so I am not sure if they have A/C. The location is very central if you like that. Management is very friendly as it is a family business. My only problem was that I did prefer not to use the blankets as they don't seem to be washed between guests... but the sheets are quite clean and since the heater kept the room warm I did not need them. The room floor could use better sweeping, but let's remember this is a budget hotel... I recommend it.

We found the rooms to be noisy at night when the reception phone rang or guests would come and go. We could easily hear their conversations because the walls seemed to be very thin. However, we still had a pleasant stay. The hotel was very close to a "Museum of Ham" bar, which we loved because of their cheap and yummy food!

This was a fantastic hostel, with really nice staff. It was right in the heart of sol, with a lovely bar opposite. The only problem was it took us ages to find the street it was on as the map was awful. If you look for Calle Victoria (or something similar, just of the puerto del sol, the calle cruz comes off that.

I found the staff friendly but I thought it was a shame that although I paid only a few Euros less I was in a very small single room compared to the double rooms. As I was at the front of the hostal it was really noisy all night but I couldn't blame the hostal for that, the area is just really busy with all the bars and construction work nearby. It is convenient to get to the museums etc from the hostal.

Our stay there was wonderful. It is very well located. The staff is friendly and helpful. it was a little loud, but that is the price you pay to be in the heart of everything. We walked everywhere saving lots of money on tranportation. Next time I would not allow myself to be placed in room 105. it is in the lobby, therefore very loud. Not suitable for light sleepers like me, but my husband had no problem sleeping. Great place! I would definitely stay again.

Las habitaciones son espaciosas y limpias, se nota que han sido renovadas hace poco tiempo. El hostal está muy cerca de la Puerta del Sol y de la Plaza Mayor, lo que provoca que haya movimiento todo el día. La ubicación es ideal para quienes disfrutan de la vida nocturna tradicional de Madrid, pues en la zona hay muchos bares, pubs y cafés. Sin embargo, en las noches de fin de semana el ruido alcanza niveles bastante molestos, especialmente si uno pretende descansar. Otro inconveniente es que no hay servicio de desayuno, lo que implica que se tiene que salir del hostal temprano para poder tomar algo en los cafes cercanos, solo se cuenta con una máquiena dispensadora de bebidas. Creo que a pesar de todo, por la localización, la comodidad de las habitaciones y el precio que tiene, volveria a hospedarme ahí.

The hostal is in a very central and "touristy" location, and it is only a minute's walk from Sol. Out of all of the hotels on my lastest trip, this was the best deal for the price. The room was very spacious, clean, and quiet, and the staff was friendly.

Out there on a hen do so noise wasn't ever a problem!! Perfect location, near to everything. Had 3 rooms, 2x3bed and 1x4bed. 2 were crowded, 1 fantastic with little balcony. Decor a little tired but beds clean and made every day. Air con worked perfectly and bathrooms big and brand new with towels etc. Safe available for 50cents in room. Staff very helpful and spoke good english. Recommended.
