The Hostal is in a great location close to Plaza Mayor, Plaza Del Sol, and the Royal Palace. Use the call button on the right side of the front door doorframe - Hostal Luz is not easily identified. The elevator is only about 18 inches wide, but will accommodate most luggage. The Hostal is on the fourth floor (American way of counting floors, but the third floor in the European system - punch the button for "3" for the elevator). Once you get into the Hostal itself, the atmosphere is bright and cheerful with pale yellow walls and light colored floor tiles. The bathroom in my private room was large with a shower although the bedroom is not large and there is little room to place your luggage if not on one of the two beds. Rooms are cleaned well each day and the refrigerator is great if you are trying to eat from the grocery store. Negatives are that no one speaks more than bare minimum English, unclear voices can be heard through the walls, and my room could use a fresh coat of paint. All said, this is the second time I have stayed there, each time for a week and recommend it.
