If you are looking to book a central Madrid hostal in the Sol area, Hostal El Pilar could be the right choice for you! This Madrid hostal offers free Wi-Fi, an elevator (lift) and laundry facilities. Knowledgeable staff are available at the front desk 24 hours-a-day and can provide tour/ticket assistance.
The rooms areally simple and clean. A stone's throw from the main Puerta de Sol square you are smack bang in the midst of things with a short walk to many Madrid attractions. Also the Metro is less than a minute away. The price also makes this an attractive options.
In terms of charm there is not much endearing to this hotel. The newly renovated reception and staircases are lovely but the rooms are simple and cramped for some people's tastes.
