I stayed here for four nights in August 2015. Admittedly, the check-in process lasted a bit too long but the multi-lingual staff were very attentive and as the hotel was not full, I was upgraded to a room with a balcony on the top floor at no extra cost! Although quite small, the room was very clean and had every... More

Everything OK really - nice for my business trip but not for a holiday. The staff were patient and showed me three rooms before I was satisfied. It was just my taste really and it was brilliant cooling off in the plunge pool after a long work day. Great views from the plunge pool terrace. Would have used the spa... More

I'm sorry to inform you that the ONLY night I spent in this hotel with my girlfriend, I found a bad surprise in the bed. All the pillows were dirty and not clean, as you can see in the photo in attachment. Moreover, I informed the Receptionist about the fact, showing her the photos you can see here: NOTHING was...

I visited this hotel with my boyfriend at the end of August. Our first night didn't go as planned, the hotel receptionist seemed to appear to be struggling to place us in our pre booked double room and in the end took us to a very small room at the back of the building with two beds pushed together. It... More

This is the place to stay in Madrid.Its central position means that most of the main tourist attractions are within easy reach- no need for taxis or buses. The hotel is clean and modern. Our room was quite large and well furnished. Although it was overlooking the Gran Via, it was not too noisy at all. The air con was... More

This hotel is in a great location and is well priced considering it is on Gran Via and just a short walk from Plaza del Sol. However, our room, although internal, was really noisy at night with what was essentially a wind trap sounding like a constant mini hurricane. And then first thing in the morning, the builders worked outside... More

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel and overall my experience was positive. The hotels location is really excellent, close to everything by foot and easily accessible by public transportation. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. The only thing that would be nice would be a miniature bottle of body cream in the bathroom. The hotel has a swimming... More

We just stayed at the Catalonia Gran Via two weeks ago. We stayed for 7 nights. It was our first visit to Madrid. The room was very nice and clean. The only thing missing in the bathroom was body lotion, but other than that, our experience was very pleasant. The restaurant offers a very nice breakfast buffet with high quality... More

Great location, We were only 2 stops on the subway from our daughter. We can walk everywhere from here. We ordered drinks and snacks, we never ate at the restaurant at the hotel. We would stay again. Rooms are modern, not bad in size for Europe. Pool was tiny, we didn't use it was still was a little chilly in... More

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.
