And the good news is that there is no need to max out your credit cards or take out a second mortgage to book a nice place to spend your time in Madrid. In other words, there is an abundance of high-quality budget hotels across the city.
That is why I decided to conduct a through search to find my favorite mid-range hotels in Madrid based on comfort, amenities, and the overall atmosphere.
Have a look at my list below:
My favorite 5 mid-range hotels in Madrid
Hotel Cortezo: It has the bonus of being in a central location, just a couple of minutes away from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Tirso de Molina, on a relatively quiet street.
Decor tends toward the gentleman’s club boutique look with white linens, dark wooden headboards, and brushed stainless steel trim. The rooftop terrace is small but fitted with a few lounge chairs, teak strip decking, and an outdoor shower to cool off and wash off the tanning lotion.
The rooms have parquet flooring and are decorated in pleasant Mediterranean colors, giving them a comfortable feel.
Room Mate Mario: Conveniently located on a quiet, curving street near the Teatro Real opera house and the Royal Palace, this hotel is part of a stylish yet affordable chain that offers a youthful, playful design at a good price
The hotel occupies an elegant building and staying here gives you an idea of what it is like to live in the heart of Madrid.
All rooms have pops of bright blue, green, or red, along with modern furniture, and sleek track lighting. Bold floral and musical motifs drift across panels on the wall behind the beds and designer lamps provide a glamorous touch.
One Shot Prado 23: This stylish hotel located in the Barrio de las Letras, Madrid’s “Literary Quarter”, has a creative, design-forward vibe, from the funky lobby deer sculpture to the colorful, industrial-chic guest room decor complete with Hopper-inspired photography on the walls. Its central location means there are plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants, and nightlife options nearby.
A former antique shop back in the day, its déco features art installations in the foyer and graffitied walls in the underground car park.
The rooms are sophisticatedly decorated, with minimal decor, hardwood floors and subtle pops of color throughout. Soak up the history of Madrid by wandering through the grid of nearby streets.
B&B Hotel Fuencarral 52: The hotel occupies a building built in 1830, thanks to a comprehensive rehabilitation project conducted in 2015, and offers a stylish, modern and functional design. Do not miss the panoramic lift vertical garden overlooking the inner courtyard!
The emphasis here is on getting the important things right – beds, lighting, showers, soundproofing and coffee
Spacious, bright and perfectly soundproofed rooms with an elegant design and a great mix of light and color, are very well equipped.
Petit Palace Preciados: Located in Calle Preciados, this a great shopping area in Madrid’s city center. Though this district can be loud with late-night revelers, the hotel is located on a somewhat quiet pedestrian-only street. So it offers an unbeatable opportunity to enjoy the very best of the neighborhood – monuments, restaurants, shops and the cultural life with all the surrounding theaters!
This 76-room hotel has some nice perks, including stocked minibars, free bike rentals, and free breakfast served in a sunny room with city views and a nice terrace.
