A hostal Torrente would be proud of

Looking for cheap accommodation in Madrid, I came upon the webpage for Hostal Tijcal, which informs us IN ALL CAPS that “FROM THE HOSTEL YO CAN VISIT ALL THE CENTER” and that it is close to “TYPICAL BARS TO GO ON TAPAS”. This useful webpage has a photo gallery which shows us that upon entering the magisterial interior of Hostal Tijcal, we will be bombarded with heroic displays of Spanish nationalism. There is also a clock at the bottom of the page which informs us of the time to the second, and that it is the year 109.
