I paid almost 150 Euros per night at this hotel and had the worst experience in terms of noise, bad shower, old facilities and bad staff. My advice to you is NEVER to go there. You will see why in my long review below. I made a reservation at this hotel for 5 nights in June and paid for everything... More

The welcome and friendliness at the reception was just first class. The room was very tastefully decorated with a large bathroom. The rooms were very quiet and the breakfast buffet just fabulous. The central location in Madrid was perfect to visit the city.

We had a fine stay at the Hotel Catalonia Plaza Mayor. The hotel was clean, modern, and spacious. The hotel was within walking distance of all major Madrid sites. We stayed in a room with a courtyard view for the quiet, and we were rewarded with a peaceful night sleep despite the central location. I really appreciated that the bed... More

Stayed at this hotel with another couple in August 2014 for four nights. At check-in was greeted by Irene, who was a very pleasant, smiling face at the reception area. Check-in was easy and quick. The rooms, overlooking Atocha Street, were comfortable and clean. Iron and board were requested and delivered promptly. We were given Welcome Drink vouchers, as we... More

Chose this hotel due to excellent previous reviews and couldn't fault it. Very clean, modern, stylish rooms of a good size overlooking a lovely atrium central seating area. Excellent location for sightseeing in a good neighbourhood. Staff very helpful and accommodating. We didn't eat in due to the vast selection of excellent restaurants nearby. Rooms very well sound proofed too.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a stopover in Madrid. We found the hotel to be a stylish, very clean & comfortable hotel. Our room was spotlessly clean with an extremely comfortable bed and had quite possibly the best hotel shower we have ever used. Can't comment on hotel food as we didn't eat in, the breakfast was priced... More

Overall very good for money. In and out very clean. The extra cost for Atocha street view however was wasted, as there hardly is any view. Location is convenient but Atocha street itself is quite dull and slightly run down. Breakfast is up to its cost. Worth it.

The hotel is in a quiet side street backing on to the Plaza Mayor and right at the start of the old town. The room was clean and I had a double room with single occupancy. It was good for one but would have been a squash with two adults and two suitcases. I was cold the first night as... More
