I was recommended this place for my needs. And it did just that. Yes reception is small, but the service was fantastic. The elevators are super tiny. Don't think you'll fit two people plus luggage. But I never waited for a ride. Air con worked. Bathroom was clean and functioning. Bed was very comfortable. TV was old and no tea/coffee... More

This was my third visit to the Arosa perfectly located on the Grand Via almost equidistant from everything. Check in has moved to the ground floor. Lounge and breakfast are upstairs. Two small elevators service the hotel, one oddly pie shaped, but they work well and I never waited. Rooms are basic but the beds are comfortable, the plumbing works,... More

This hotel is located overlooking the Gran Via and is just a few blocks from the Plaza del Sol. It was also within walking distance to the Prado and to the Royal Palace as wall as all the sights inbetween. It is definitely a little dated but is very clean and offers a decent breakfast in a spacious dining room... More

Very good Location - but otherwise nothing special at all. Rooms are transporting you back 20 years in time w/ CRT TV,... However rooms were really clean - which is not always the case w/ elder Hotels - so positive for sure. Staff was friendly and quick. Breakfast only starts at 7am, which was too late for my Business Meetings.

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.
