Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The location is truly wonderful!! Literally a 30 second walk through an arch to the plaza mayor, and 2 mins to my favourite place in Madrid mercado San Miguel. We had booked a superior room, however I'm not sure what was superior about it?? Hard pillows the floor was terribly uneven, it felt...

Nice hotel, easy to get to, our room on the ground floor was clean, lots of room with large flat screen TV. A great central hotel, just off the main plaza, perfect for a short break with everything you need

Stayed here with my sister, both in our 20s. Was pleasantly surprised by the room. Clean, big with nice big windowed doors overlooking the road and the little square outside. Beds were uncomfortable but there was lots of extra bedding and pillows in the cupboard I used to pad it out a bit. It was extremely noisy as we were...

Just off the Plaza Mayor square, this is a super location for a weekend city break. Room was small, but clean , and the bathroom was well appointed. Comfy beds, surprisingly quiet location, with very short walk to Sol train station for link to airport ( only €2.60 single to airport.) Lots of great places to eat and drink, and...

The room was fab. Definately get the Superior doubles - they are worth the extra. Three juliette balconies on a corner overloooking the square in room 403 was just great. Staff were very, very friendly, jolly and extremely helpful Breakfast? - if you're an English chap then relax; scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon all unlimited from chaffing dishes is available.

We travelled to Spain at least a dozen of times in the past ten years and, anytime we are in Madrid, we stay at Hotel Plaza Mayor. We loved the location and, until recently, we liked the service. For our upcoming trip to Madrid, we booked this hotel via Hotels.com. We made an honest mistake of selecting February instead of...

I stayed three nights in a single room. The bathroom/shower is tiny and tight. The room faced Plaza Mayor. At night it could get noisy with pedestrians/shoppers, or drunk people screaming on their way to a bar. The location is amazing. There is so much to do near the Hotel. It is near a metro station. Some of their staff...

Hotel Plaza Mayor is in the perfect location, and for less than $100 per night, you can't beat it. The staff are professional and courteous and the room was spotlessly clean. The room was teeny-tiny and pretty basic, but I wasn't planning to spend a lot of time in it. It worked perfectly for me.

We stayed for a couple of nights before our tour and then again at the end. It is PERFECTLY situated to get anywhere. You literally look out the window to the Plaza Major. You can walk almost anywhere from this location. We took several walking tours from here. It is a pretty basic hotel but the front desk was helpful,...

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.
