We stayed at this hotel for our recent break in Madrid. The hotel was very clean, with friendly, polite staff and centrally located. We included breakfast in our hotel package which had something for everyone. We would stay at this hotel again as it's ideal for location and value for money. We

Service was great and the room was VERY spacious, my wife and I and our 15 year old daughter. The buffet breakfast was delicious and good service considering it was buffet. Any issues we had they bent over backwards to help you resolve the issues. Their location is close for all the tourist attractions for downtown to walk to.

Last minute change of hotel due to issues with another larger chain (tryp) Great location close to the metro and easy walk to some of the major sights and all for a decent price. Rooms seemed very spacious for such a central location and clean if a little worn around the edges. Related to this one of the major issues... More

It wasn't so we waited until almost 1pm but it was still earlier than the posted check in time. The front desk staff were very helpful and there... More

Good breakfast with fresh fruit, juice, muesli, selection of cheese and meat, scrambled eggs, bacon and mushrooms,.. more or less everything for a quick breakfast. Rooms are big but during nights too much noise from the street.

The hotel is totally worn out. The staff upon arrival seemed to have been working 24 hours and kind of blamed people coming to the hotel. We were there as a group, dinner was just to eat something, but the girl working as a waitress was very nice - confident and fine, unlike her colleague at the reception! The location... More

We stayed at the Coloso for 4 days in September then returned for 2 days after spending 4 days in Valencia. The reason for the return is that we were flying from Madrid back to Edinburgh.

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.
