2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Situated close to the Royal Palace this hotel is in a good position in the city centre to go sightseeing. However the hotel itself was disappointing. Our room was very basic with twin beds pushed together instead of a double bed. Interesting window blinds which we could not close and even when one of the staff came up to sort... More

Great location close to palace and other attractions. We walked to all the history and shopping from there. Room was somewhat loud - they were doing road work on the street, could hear cars etc. If some noise bothers you (like it does me), suggest that you bring a set of earplugs (which I always do when traveling anyway).

For us, this hotel ticked all the right boxes. Some have complained of the noise in the area where this hotel is located but the level of noise was more than acceptable considering we're staying in a city. The hotel is not central to everything but is in walking distance to Gran Via. There were plenty of bars and restaurants... More

Family owned bussiness. The owner and most of the staff are very helpful, even the people from the cafeteria. Location is great and great value for money. They´ve got another hotel around the corner in an even quieter street. Walking distance to the city´s centre. Paid 85 € for a double room with a single use. Great value for money.

The Hotel Opera is in a great location. Rooms are quite small but we had a large bathroom with an opaque wall into the bedroom so if you got up in the night and switched on the light (as there was no window to let in some light) the bedroom then also lit up waking your partner or companion. We... More

This hotel is close to the metro stop, Plaza Sol and Plaza Mayor. We were a party of 3 and had a family room on the sixth floor. The room was large and had a large bathroom with a shower and a shower/tub but very little counter space. We stayed Saturday through Tuesday. Saturday night was the worse as we... More

Hotel Opera is located two minutes walk from the nearest Metro and ten minutes walk from the most popular areas of the city. The rooms are clean, spacious and well lit. The hotel staff were very knowledgeable and helpful too.

The Teatro Real (Royal Theater) is right across the street. Hotel guests could walk to the theater fully dressed for their favorite opera or concert in a few minutes. Then there is the El Cafe de La Opera in the hotel which has two floors. You may dine at the restaurant (below street level) serving Spanish cuisine before the performance.... More

We spent a long weekend in Madrid, and chose this hotel for its central location. Ours was a standard room with two twin beds; we were across the hall from the lift but did not experience any excessive noise. The room was of average size for Europe, and with seating (not counting the bed) for just one person. The beds... 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.
