I didn't know where I wanted to be since I was traveling through Madrid to Morroco. I wanted a decent price, decent hotel and decent location. All were great. Location was best, walking to a lot of options and short taxi to others. Really great option!

Been here for 5 days, location is perfect, very close to some major attractions and great restaurants. Check-in was ok. During the stay I was very sick, the lady at the reception was so rude, she did not want to help us find a hospital where they speak english, she was busy with her other things I suppose.

We stayed four nights at this hotel. We could not fault the running (or operations) of the hotel in any way. The only thing I did not like about the hotel - this being purely a matter of personal preference - was its location.

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights staying in a suite. It was on the top floor (floor 6) with windows that open but are up high so there are no views. Upon entry of the room, you have about 6 shelves for clothes etc, a lounge area with a 2 seater couch, ottoman, coffee table, lamps, rug and an... More

Spent one night here on business. The location is excellent, close to the Hotel Me and an easy walk to the museums. The neighbourhood has numerous small places to eat and drink and there seems to be a lot of local nightlife. Check in was excellent: very efficient and very helpful with directions, maps etc. The breakfast was fine covering... More

Stayed here for one week. Room was very nice, the free Wi-Fi worked great and the complimentary breakfast was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and the location for walking in the center of Madrid could not have been better. The price was very reasonable for what you get. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Catalonia Plaza Mayor is a member of Hotels Catalonia family, and that may be a reason why it seems to lack personal style. However, if you're looking for a fine hotel in the center of Madrid, it's a clever choice. 1) Location - central, close to the Atocha railway station, Sol, Plaza Mayor (more to Sol, actually), the royal...

This hotel is located in a lovely part of Madrid. Lots of small places to drink and eat. Small streets and lots of local life. This is not a fancy hotel, but you get what you need and the room we had was very quiet and quite large. The breakfast is nothing but fantastic, a bit expensive though.
