This is a good hotel, with kind staff at the reception desk. The breakfast is very good and there is also a tea time/happy hour from 5 to 8 for free. The location is wonderful. You are only a few blocks from Plaza Mayor and one block from the Anton Martin metro station. At the same time it is not... More

Nice staff, cozy rooms, super tasty breakfast. Great location. Large shower - you can take it with football team. Shower accessories are good quality with calm smell. Intriguing lighting options in room. Close to nightlife, Prada Museum, key city plazas. Good for few days visits

Great location close to bars, restaurants and cafés. Staff friendly and helpful (especially given I am Australian so Spanish isn't my forte), daily breakfast offered much variety. The hotel room itself was very dark and didn't offer any natural light via the windows. Room quite small.

I had the opportunity to stay in two different rooms here in the span of 2 weeks and here is my experience Pros: 1. The breakfast is good but they sometimes take too long to replenish exhausted food. Eg. most of the times that i went there the omelettes were finished. 2. The rooms on the lower floor were spacious... More

We found this hotel to be expensive as a room with a window was a €15 a night upgrade. Whatever you do, don't get any laundry done. A small carrier bag that could be carried by a little finger ( I say this because normally washing is done by the kilo everywhere we've been) cost us €149 plus taxes. Yep... More

Not very easy to spot from the road, it's set in an old building; The location is ideal if you want to visit the main attractions of Madrid (5-10 minutes far from Sol station, 5 minutes from Anton Martin and 10 minutes from Plaza Mayor) and you will be free from the crowds of the Gran Via! Moreover, there are... More

This hotel is located just 2 mins walk from Anton Martin metro and 10 min walk from the Puerta De Sol. There are many pubs and restaurants located around this hotel which makes it a very good location. Also the Atocha Railway station is located close by.

Courteous, helpful staff; comfortable bed; great location; a super place to stay. Our visit was a very positive experience. The hotel is well appointed, and only 15 minutes walk from Atocha station. There was another Catalonia on fhe same street, but this one was very close to Puerta del Sol and Anton Martin metro station

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.
