Boutique hotel Posada del León de Oro – Review

The Posada del León de Oro is a small (just 17 rooms) boutique hotel placed at a XIXth century building. The boasts a superb traditional courtyard and is located in one of the areas most looked for in Madrid. 


Being located at a historical building does not mean comfort is lost. Rooms at the Posada del León de Oro are decorated in a contemporary, chic way, with a colour palette that changes from room to room. Some rooms offer a colourful atmosphere with pink or bright red accents, whereas in other rooms black and white are the main colours. 

Select rooms offer small balconies with great views. 

The rooms at the hotel are soundproof and are equipped with free WIFI, air conditioning, central heating, a minibar, a safe, flat-screen TV, and a private bathroom.

Bathrooms offer heated towel racks and offer only showers. Some of the rooms have tub-shower combos. 

In the Buhardilla rooms, the tubs are next to the bed. 

There are family rooms that can accommodate up to 4 people.


The hotel also features a traditional Castilian restaurant that serves a daily buffet-style breakfast. The hotel also has a bar that offers a wide selection of wine and tapas.


Hotel Posada del Leon de Oro is located in the La Latina neighborhood of Madrid, 100 meters from the Plaza Mayor.

La Posada del León de Oro is very close to the city´s top tourist attractions. It will take you 10 minutes to get from the hotel to the Royal Palace, The Almudena Cathedral or the famous Puerta del Sol.

Visitors will also find it easy to get to the Rastro market, Madrid´s most famous flea market. 

Overall Review

The Posada del León de Oro is a perfect hotel for you if you enjoy small hotels with character at superior locations.  If this is your case, we are convinced you will appreciate and enjoy the “Corrala” or traditional interior courtyard of this hotel (some of these corralas, like it is the case of the one at this hotel, have been carefully restored)

The hotel has family rooms, though it may not be the most suitable hotel for families unless you value staying at a traditional accomodation. 

What is for sure is that if you enjoy large hotels with lots of services (gym, spa, pool, etc) the Posada del León de Oro is most probably not for you!
