- Built in 1966 and still going strong, the reasonably priced Ayre Gran Hotel Colón is west of Retiro Park in a relatively safe area of Madrid that's easily connected to the center by subway. It's well maintained and kept up-to-date, offering well-designed bedrooms with comfortably traditional furnishings.
- Ideally located in a popular tiny square close to the Plaza Mayor, the 19th-century Hostal Persal offers particularly good value, family-size rooms, and fine on-the-spot meals.
