Today I have received my telephone bill and remembered the story. We flew from Cuba back home and decided to stay one night in Madrid. My husband asked the hotel to send us the taxi (in writing). Nobody was bothered to do this. So after 10 hour flight and finding our way to the hotel we "landed" at the reception.... More

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

We have now stayed in this hotel on two occasions overnight as part of railway trips (well, we all have our foibles!). It is absolutely ideal for an overnight stay when you want to be right in the middle of Madrid. Our room was modern, clean and well equipped, reception was first class and the breakfast first class (one sight... 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
