Fantastic, welcoming staff for naughty tourists (us) who haven't learned enough Spanish. Room is tiny, but clean. And I mean tiny. Double bed against the wall and not much room otherwise. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room either. Upsides are that they have a gym. A bit hot in the gym, but better than no gym. Also... More

We stayed in Hotel Opera for two nights in late-July on our first visit to Spain. The temperatures were high-30s but the air-con had no trouble keeping the room cool. We ate at the Hotel Restaurant for lunch and found it pretty good. Rooms - Rooms were pretty reasonable in size. Clean and modern with good fixtures. The bed was... More

This hotel is in a great location. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and well air conditioned It can be noisy the lower you are so ask for a high floor The breakfasts are good and the wifi was a decent speed. It is right off the metro and at the end of Puerta del Sol.

This is an unpretentious hotel about 200m from Opera metro station. It is well situated to take a stroll for shopping, eating or simply watching. Supposedly the district is safe given the usual constraints of being sensible, and I experienced no problems. Service in the hotel reception was helpful and accommodating. The roo was a little small to move easily... More

Near to the Royal Palace this hotel could not be better situated. We stayed for three faultless nights. The nearby restaurants are good and you can sit in the oavement cafes and watch the opera goers arriving in the finest outfits, some attracting large numbers of paparazzi. If we go to Madrid again, we will definately stay here.

This hotel was very nice because it was clean and spacious. The receptionists were helpful and kind. Plus, the location was more than excellent since all of the main attractions were a couple of steps away. We could even see the palace from our window! The only downside was that we could here every move and conversation that was taking... More

I stayed at the Opera Hotel in Madrid for 3 nights in mid-July. The hotel is in a good location but it is in desperate need of a cleaning and renovation. This was our last stop in Spain and I was excited about the hotel based on the reviews I had read. I was very disappointed. The hotel hallways were... 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.
