Cons

Bottom Line

The 67-room Petit Palace Posada Del Peine is located in a historic building in Madrid, dating back to 1610. While the building has a real sense of history, the decor is quite modern. Spacious rooms have flat-screen TVs, contemporary furniture, and artistic flowering branches painted right onto the walls. Additional highlights include laptops in each room, French doors that open onto little Juliette balconies, and hydro-massage showers. Family rooms equipped with bunk beds offer good value to people traveling with kids. The lobby is on the small side, but hallways and stairwells are filled with natural light. Breakfast is served in a great historic space in the exposed brick basement. With free bike rentals, free Wi-Fi, and a location near Plaza Mayor, this hotel is a good pick for value and convenience.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Sol, the heart of Madrid, near top attractions, shopping, and nightlife

The location of the Petit Palace Posada Del Peine is in the middle of the action. Plaza Mayor is around the corner and Puerta del Sol, the Royal Palace, La Almudena Cathedral, the Royal Theater, and Sabatini Gardens are all within a five-minute walk of the property. Arenal is a pedestrian street running from Puerta del Sol to Opera, where the Royal Theater is located. The central location brings hordes of tourists and locals alike, day and night. There's a popular nightclub and concert hall across the street from the hotel that can be noisy.

Great shopping around Sol and Gran Via are an easy walk away, as is young nightlife in the Huertas neighborhood. La Latina, a tapas and al fresco dining and drinking hot spot is a quick stroll away (cross beautiful Plaza Mayor to get there), and the Austrias area, with lovely 17th-century architecture and cobblestone streets is just a few blocks down Arenal Street.

Sol is the heart of Madrid, both geographically speaking and in a figurative sense. "Kilometer Zero" (where all roads in Spain are said to start), shopping, dining, nightlife, and major tourist attractions are all here. This means many tourists in Madrid never leave the neighborhood. Its central location is ideal for those who like to explore the city on foot, but for those who prefer taking public transportation, Sol is one of the major transportation hubs.
