Hostal Aranzazu, Madrid
For those looking to take advantage of everything Madrid has to offer, from historical buildings, to art, to tapas, to nightlife, the Hostal Aranzazu could not be in a better location. Literally wedged between the modern art museum, the Reina Sofia (the collection is most famous for Picasso’s Guernica) and one of the city’s biggest night clubs, Kapital, you really do have it all, at crawling distance (if need be). The Puerta del Sol is also very close to this area, just a few minutes walk or a short metro ride.
Stroll up the tree lined Paseo del Prado (just around the corner) past the Botanical Gardens and you’re soon at the touted Prado Museum, chock full of works by the great Spanish masters and some others such as Goya, Velazquez and Bosch. The Lavapies area offers great tapas bars and lots of cheap eats, not to mention some of the best nightlife in the city. Atocha train station is a stone’s throw away, and you can also easily take day trips to Toledo, Aranjuez, or even Cordoba or Sevilla in the AVE (bullet train). The hostel offers singles, doubles, triples and quadruples. Some of the rooms have a full en suite bathroom with bathtub or shower, others have a bathroom with bathtub or shower and a sink (shared WC outside the room), and there are also rooms with a sink inside and a full shared bathroom outside in the corridor. There is a heating, a fan and TV in all of the rooms. The hostel has a 24 hour reception. A fantastic location near art, culture and the best clubs in the city!
