We were on a tour and stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is modern and the room was stunning, and you felt like you were sleeping in the Prado Museum. The wall behind the bed was an image of the art that you see in the Museum. The entire hotel has this theme not only at reception, but all the...

We went there for a long weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. From the moment we were met out of the taxi and invited in by the doormen the service from the friendly and professional staff was exemplary. It's the small things that really stand out. Upon check in the receptionist noticed it was my wife's birthday and when we...

This hotel is fantastic. I normally don't pay more than €200 a night for a hotel but this was totally worth it. The rooms were clean, the service was excellent, and the concierge was very helpful. The location is also efficient and if I am in Madrid again I will definitely return.

From the moment we checked in at the red level lounge service was impeccable. Started with a champagne and nothing was too much trouble at all for the staff here. Very pleasant, friendly, service with a smile. The lounge is good here, the food is lovely and the location very convenient. Our room (a suite) was also one of the...

The hotel was one of the best 5* European city hotels we have stayed in. Location excellent. Rooms very modern. Comfort of beds excellent. Red Level is a must, you have access to unlimited branded drinks and Champers 11 to 11. The dedicated reception is also good.

Wonderful 4 day stay at this Hotel. The Red Level upgrade is worth it. The rooftop pool has a brilliant selection of cocktails. All the staff were lovely, but total respect to Lydia as she was superb and a true credit to the Hotel. Cannot wait to return to this place. Madrid is an ace city!

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
