    It is very central.

    I did not have hot water in the morning and there were some prostitutes in the surrounding streets.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Clean, well furnished hotel, friendly helpful staff.

    Good Value Hotel but definitely not in a family-friendly location. Tacky red light district.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Very affable personnel, settling probably round the clock. In numbers there is an Internet.

    There is refrigerator or a minibar, and as no conditioner (only the fan). Nearby to hotel there are prostitutes, the truth it not so confused us.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The location of Hostal Ballesta was great. We were very central and the staff was very helpful. As this was our last stop in Spain, it was also great that we could utilize the printers and wifi at the hotel. Lastly, there was very good value for this hotel.

    there was a lot of construction going on and could be noisy at times. Luckily, the construction took place during working hours.

    We spend there 6 instead of 3 nights because of the bad ash cloud in Europe. They helped us with calling the airline, the use of the free internet computers and the possibility of booking each day for another day. The nice lounge was a good meeting place now and then to have a chat with other guests. Compliments to all the boys at the frontdesk!!!

    The room was small, a little dark but good value for money. Exactly what we were looking for.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Good location, close to metro Gran Via and Callao. Nice and clean room but not good view. Free internet and wi-fi.

  • Single
    8.2

    Nice new modern hostal, very clean rooms and new furniture. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location very central and great place to stay to explore the city.

    Room was quite small and i could hear if someone was having a shower or running water in the next rooms bathroom. It wasn't too bad and you couldn't hear anything but can be bit noisy.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Great location, good price. However, the room is a little bit tight.

  • Couple
    9.2

    It was pleasant. Had free internet and printing station. Big room. 24Hour reception. Wi Fi

    On redlight district. A bit noisey at night.

  • Single
    7.8

    Quite cheap, comfortable enough beds, enough room/bathroom space, a desk, and in a silent location.

    The rooms are a bit sound communicant between them and corridors, but if no noisy neighbors no problem. Air conditioning flows strait to the head of the bed.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good facilities. Very central location. Nice rooms.

    A 'double' room was just two single (very firm) beds pushed together (each with single covers). Other reviews mention prostitutes on the street but I hardly noticed them and they were totally harmless.

  • Single
    9.4

    That it is close to Prado Museum. The Aircondition.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Its modern look!

    Actually it is not the hotel itself but its location. Although very central it is found in a red light district.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The staff were very helpful. Overall, it was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay at the Hostal Ballesta again.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Centrally located, comfortable

    24 - 7 prostitutes in the street
