Stayed here for 4 nights in Feb to celebrate my upcoming 60th. Fantastic hotel, right opposite the Opera House, and a very short walk from the Palace and other tourist sites. Staff could not have been more helpful. It has a great cafe where you can watch the world go by, serving tapas/pizza and a daily menu. The rooms were... More

We stayed at this hotel March 15-19, 2015, and enjoyed it very much. The room was excellent and the staff very professional, yet friendly. They did their best to offer suggestions on where to eat, shop, and relax. The restaurant next door was moderately priced and the food was first class. Highly recommend.

We only had a couple of nights in Madrid and were looking for somewhere central to stay. We picked the Hotel Opera for location and were pleasantly surprised with the quality. Walking distance to almost everywhere, and close to the metro for everything else. If you are struggling with a hotel stop looking and book.

Noisey hotel. We were on the top floor and could hear street noise. We could also hear neighbors at night. The room is small and the top floor feels like an attic. It is decorated in a Spartan way. There's a weird smell in the hallway that greets you as you enter. Only one mirror (full length) but in a... More

Hotel was booked as part of a tour package. We found it quite comfortable but nothing spectacular. Room was clean and comfortable. Street noise was quite significant and we were fairly high up in the building. Breakfast was included and very good. We aite one dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was terrible.

Stayed here for a long weekend. We were given the key to our room but when we got there it hadn't been made up. The staff could not have been more accommodating and eventually with no further exertion on our part we arrived at our allotted room. It was extremely clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and... More

A friendly hotel with extremely helpful staff and rooms (standard twin) which are nothing special but adequate for a long weekend. No bath (shower only) and the fact that the bathroom had opaque glass walls meant that you could get woken up if your partner went to the toilet in the middle of the night. We felt that the rooms...

Loved this hotel. It was central clean comfortable and the staff were brilliant. I read poor reviews of this hotel but my experience was great. I had a nice room on the second floor. It was plenty big as I was on my own. Everything was clean and comfortable. It had a good size bathroom . The staff were very... 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.
