This Hotel is very well located, offers a nice breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. It has restaurant in the first floor. It offers brochures of all the important things in Madrid, which is very useful. Loved it. Amazing experience!

Great location just by the royal palace, 10 minute walk to Sol, Plaza Mayor and surrounded by traditional Spanish squares full of restaurants and bars. With Grand Via and Plaza Espanya also minutes away. It's right next to Opera subway station too so handy. Especially to and from the airport (although you have to change twice). Reception very polite at... More

The hotel is conveniently located to the Metro, tour companies, and Madrid attractions. Breakfast is included and the hotel is economically priced. We stayed in exactly the same room we had in 2011, but were saddened to see that the hotel is not being well maintained: the chair in our room was badly ripped, the bathroom needed some deep cleaning,...

I must confess, we found this hotel through a Rick Steve's recommendation. I guess there is a reason he is well known for travel. This is a first rate hotel.

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.
