We really enjoyed our stay at the Catalonia Gran Via, until we got the bill. The room was nice and the breakfast was decent. Then my husband had to make a phone call because his debit card was eaten by an ATM machine and we asked if we could call from the front desk and they said no, we had... More

I really enjoyed staying here. The location is perfect--very easy to walk to most attractions in central Madrid and near shopping and restaurants. The room was a good size. I was able to get a comfortable double bed instead of 2 singles. The room had everything I needed (fridge, safe) and was relatively quiet. The bathroom (toilet area) was a... More

I am surprised that this hotel is currently showing only 69% as we found it just what we were looking for. The room and the bathroom were both a good size and was well equipped. (The bed was incredibly comfortable). Both were kept spotless throughout our weeks stay. Although we heard some noise from occasional visitors passing in the corridor,... More

This hotel is ideally located. You can walk to Fuencarral shopping area, Sol, Plaza Espana and great eateries. I travel to Madrid a lot, and this was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The separate stone shower was to die for. The only unsatisfactory thing about the room was the lack of a window. Hotel is reasonably... More

Great location right in the heart of Madrid on Gran Via one of the citys busiest streets, perfect location with most of Madrids tourist spots within a 10 to 15 minute walk, and the tour bus rout runs past the front door. We travelled with another couple and booked two rooms with outside terraces on the top floor which offererd... More

Location of this hotel is really good in terms of distance from city centre. Rooms aren't spacious though. Stayed here in Jan 2013 and my experience was an average one. Got a good deal and hence opted for this place. Recommended for someone who likes to be around Madrid's city centre

Catalonia Gran Via is centrally located and offers a great chance to walk around the old quarter of Madrid. The rooms are well appointed and allow for great privacy but there are a lot of rooms and it can be a bit like a maze when trying to find your room.

Great location, close to Gran Via. Large rooms, issue with the smell. But it seems that all hotels in the area have the same issue. Easy to move around from there. Close the the underground. Everything is okay... specially with rates under 80 euros it makes sense.
