We have just spent a long weekend at the Espahotel and could not fault it efficient and helpful staff, spotlessly clean large rooms with kitchenettes and ideally situated, We could walk to all the main sites from the hotel. Lots of eating places within a 5 minute walk.

We stayed three nights here and were delighted with the hotel. Our room was very comfortable with a view over the square, quiet and spotlessly clean. The kitchenette had plenty of crockery and cutlery as well as a fridge and hot rings to make breakfast, hot drinks and sandwiches (enough to make a hot meal too if you wanted). There... More

This trip was with my mother, the hotel was clean but dated. The staff were friendly and booked us onto a flamenco night which was amazing (Tablaolas Carboneras) The Palace was a short walk away, and Tour bus stops near by (25 euros for 2 days) We did walk everywhere as it was a great location.

I traveled to Madrid with my son and granddaughter. We stayed at the Espahotel Plaza de Espana for 5 days, then went on to Zaragoza, coming back to Madrid after 2 days away. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. I speak (limited) Spanish, so I had no problem having any question answered. The staff speaks English,... More

When we arrived they gave us a room which smelled like cigarettes. The smell was unbearable. We first thought that maybe this was just an incident and we opened the window and hoped it would go away. As we were tired we fell asleep but the next day we complained to the receptionist. He simply said it was not possible... More

Room: • Room cannot be locked from the inside! There is no way you can lock your room when you are inside! • I had the Studio room which was too big for a single pax.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood 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.
