    I'm just being picky but there was no hairdryer in the room so you need to bring your own. Bathroom facilities are quite compact but the shower is great and there is everything you need.

    Although the room was small and basic, it was spotlessly clean. The bed very comfortable and the location was fantastic. Many of the places of interest to visit were all within walking distance. This hostal is perfect if you just need somewhere clean and comfortable to sleep and you don't need a lot of space.

    No hot drinks equipment or minibar inside the room - but that’s normal for a Hostal rated establishment. The shower temperature seemed to be influenced by other guests’ hot water usage as much as the actual setting chosen.

    Intelligently refurbished - if bijou sized -rooms on the 3rd floor of a rather grand fin-de-siecle building. Good security and adequate lifts. Comfortable mattress and good pillows.

    The room was a bit too small and didn't have a view overlooking the street. The room didn't have insulation between the walls.

    I have been at Hostal Montecarlo for two nights. It is located in the middle of Gran Via and close to the metro station (5 minutes by walk), restaurants and shops. The single room was simple, clean, cosy, with air conditioning, TV, wifi, private bathroom and safe box. The staff was really kind and friendly. It was a pleasure to stay there! I definitely recommend it!

    Lots of rooms' windows has no view to outside. I mean there is an air condition area between rooms when you open the window you'll see dark area, it is bad. Also after 23pm you can enter the building only by doorman. You ring the doorbell and the stuff comes down and opens the door. It is a little bit silly I think, sometimes you have to wait so much outside the building.

    The room is too small of 3 people and luggages. The bathroom is also very small. The door is too thin so the noise from the corridor comes into the room.

    - The location is very convenient to city center. - The lady is helpful.

    Very cramped bathroom facility, but sufficient. Not good for very large people.

    Little "balcony" room nice for breakfast. Not far to walk to Airport express bus, runs frequently.
