My husband and I stayed here for five nights last month and were very disappointed by both the room and the staff. During our trip we visited Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Granada - every other hotel and its staff outshone the Carlos. Both the men on reception was unhelpful - even when paying and booking out! I had asked for...

Just returned from a 4 day break at the Carlos V. We had a triple room on the 4th floor at the front of the hotel. Although the room was spacious and clean with excellent air con, comfortable beds (3 x singles) and sufficient wardrobe/drawer space, the bathroom was on the small size. Noise from the street was not a...

i can't tell you how convenient the location was. it's so close to every major attraction and tapa bars and yet it's couple blocks away from the puerta del sol(the center) where there's a huge construction is going on right now. (Please be adviced and book your hotel away from the puerta del sol area) and yes the rooms located...

Wonderful location. Close to subway and able to walk to Plaza Major. Furnishings a bit tired but clean and had everything needed. Breakfast buffet was included and was very good. Staff was helpful when needed. Our balcony opened onto street and could see El Cortez Ingles which had entertainment. A nice touch. However, garbage trucks start very early and people...

After a conference I caught the train from Lisbon to Madrid and spent 6 happy nights at this hotel. (Overnight train also great) I was travelling alone and the staff made me feel very welcome. The complimentary "Coffee Pack" allowed me to enjoy the comfort of a cup of tea in my room after a long day exploring the nearby...

We spent 4 nights at Hotel Carlos V at the end of June with our 2 daughters. I chose it because of all the positive reviews & we were NOT dissapointed! We had 2 rooms on the 4th floor, on the back side, & noise was not a problem for us. Our bathroom was nice, but a little small, however...

I had heard many nice things about this hotel, but when I actually got there, I was disappointed. The hotel is in a central area, which is good. However, there is much noise from the adjoining streets, and I was on one of the higher floors. Also, the "queen sized" bed that we paid extra for was old and groaned...

We stayed 6 nights at the Carlos V at the beginning of May 2006, it was clean and convenient to the city centre and galleries in Madrid. I thought 9 euro was expensive for the breakfast considering what was served but the best English help we had was from the staff serving breakfast. We requested a quiet room in the...

Very happy with our stay at the Carlos V. Hotel Staff very friendly and helpful. Only two blocks from Metro and 3 blocks from Plaza Mayor. Lots of little Tapateria's and cafe's for everything from wine with breakfast to a couple of tapa's before heading out. I'd also recommend the "Easymap Walking Guide" for Madrid, everything you want to see...

Be forewarned -- no airport shuttle! We found that out the hard way when no bus showed up after a half-hour of waiting at the airport. We ended up in a taxi and our driver, too, had trouble finding the place. The trip cost about 30 euros, which we figured was about right for airport-to-downtown in a major city. And...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
