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...

I booked a bargain 3 night stay bed and breakfast. On arrival could not have been happier. Clean modern hotel, perfect location. Only 45min metro ride from the airport. Moderate sized room overlooking the royal opera house, square and could even see the palace through a gap between buildings. Central location was perfect, good walking distance to all the places...

Hotel was lovely and clean, also nice and quiet when we went. Only slight negative is lack of tea/coffee making facilities in room, however,... More

I booked the Hotel Opera as part of a British Airways flight & hotel deal - terrific value for money. Hotel Opera is situated just off the Plaza de Isabel II and is only 170 metres from the Opera Metro station. The location is fantastic for exploring the centre of Madrid - which is a very easy city to walk... More

I stayed for 2 nights and would recommend this hotel for its cleanliness and its location. The single room isn't large, but the bed is good size and comfortable. The bathroom is very large. The location is fantastic. You can walk every where very easily and the metro is 1 minute away. For a city break where you aren't going... More

Rooms are a good size, bathroom is huge, bed is comfy, wifi is fast, the heating/ac unit works well and quietly, the hot water was hot, it... More

Everything very central, many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars etc.to choose from. The hotel itself was very clean and the staff very helpful, they were all English speaking. The room and bed were clean and comfortable.... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
