Great hotel, value for money, clean, great staff, big rooms, very clean rooms, great location. Didn't try the breakfast, thought it was too expensive..(19 euro per person) Pay attention- they have smoking rooms and non smoking rooms - the smoking rooms smells .. So if u don't smoke sat for a non smoking room Other than that - great hotel!

The hotel had everything we needed for a city break. Staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel was clean, our standard room had good storage space with modern furniture and a good sized bathroom.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and were absolutely pleased with everything. In terms of location, although it was our first stay in Madrid, it was easily accessible from the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport by metro. Just take the Line 8 train and get off after four stops at Nuevos Ministerios. From there, switch to the Line 10... More

Hotel Catalonia is perfectly located in Madrid. Many attractions are at walking distance. Room itself is spacious, clean and has nice bath :) Staff. Is friendly and can provide with some extra info what to do, just in case. Definitely a place to book to be sure you are in the "centre" of Madrid.

Loved this hotel withing walking distance of the Plaza Mayor and Plaza Santa Anna both enjoyable for strolling late at night - especially Santa Anna - for hot cocoa with "churros" tapas and all the traditional dishes of Spain. Clean, modern and quiet. Good shopping nearby and even a Catholic church for those who want to hear mass while on... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
