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. It is more of a service apartment instead of a hotel. • Includes a small kitchen complete with utensils, cutlery, electric stove, electric kettle,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Espahotel, located on the Plaza de Espana for our first visit to Madrid.

There are several reasons to recommend the Espahotel Plaza de Espana to the traveller Primary: location ... it does not get much better with the plaza at your front door, a subway line a block away and the Gran Via just past that ... walk past the plaza and you find Templo de Debod, or turn in the opposite direction...

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.
