A great little place to stay.

The Hostal Persal is a well-kept property in a fantastic location in central Madrid. The major art museums, the Parque del Buen Retiro, the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, and more are all within a reasonable walking distance, and there is a major metro station (Sol) less than 10 minutes' walk away. Atoche Renfe station, where one can take the C-1 train to or from the airport, is also very close. The breakfast buffet features a number of options, but no hot food. Staff are very helpful and most speak English, and are quite encouraging if you want to try out your broken Spanish on them. We had a room facing the courtyard, which was nice and quiet.
