Hotel is a large flat in old house. Very noisy and it is hard to sleep at night.
Even though I asked for non-smoking room, I got a room where somebody smoked heavily before me. They later explained that there isn't such a thing as a 'non-smoking' room. There are sometimes smells from the building kitchens since the window is looking at inner atrium (but only during afternoon hours, in evening it's really ok). And, the staff doesn't speak a word of english.
The location of the hotel is great close to the Gran Via metro station and the price is really good.
The staff does not speak much English and the rooms aren't very quiet.
Excellent location, only 50 m. from Gran Via and its Metro, but also quiet at night. All rooms recently modernised with colour TV/air-con, and shower and rooms spotlessly clean. Staff spoke limited English but I speak limited Spanish so we got on fine! No food, but plenty of breakfast options in the neighbourhood. Building consists of 5/6 different hostales, each with its own lift, and with a security guard looking after the public entrance through the night.
No refrigerator in room
Located in Madrid (Centro), Hostal Galaico is within a 15-minute walk of Plaza Mayor and Prado Museum.
