Hostal López

The Hostel López Madrid is housed in an XIX century building at the heart of historic and artistic Madrid. The location in the historic center could not be better. The Prado Art Museum, the most important museum in Spain, is only one block away. The Thyssen Art Collection and the Reina Sofía Modern Art Museum are easily reached by foot. These three museums are closely located in what is called the Avenue of Art; the hostel is in the center of this special district.
