This hotel was centrally positioned. That is the only compliment I can pay. It had a single reception up two flights of stairs with no access for disabled. It had a few seats but no lounge as such and no bar. Access to half of the hotel was either through a myriad of corridors or by leaving the front of... More

No air conditioning!!!!!!!!!!! The room temperature was always above 30oC. No lift from ground floor to 1 st floor, so it is a nightmare for luggage and baby strollers. To arrive to your room you need to walk through several corridors, take 2 different lifts. Our room window was facing other room windows, therefore no privacy at all. Beds and... More

When you arrive you will have a good chance to be surprised, mainly if you are designated for the rooms in the next building. It is not that easy to understand how to get there, it is sort of a maze and I met many others clients that got lost at least once. The corridors need some renovation but the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Exe Coloso in our visit to Madrid and we were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived late at night and were greeted by a very friendly gentleman at the reception desk who checked us in quickly and efficiently. All the members of staff were extremely helpful and were more than willing to do anything to make... More

I stayed here back in December on a personal vacation. The reception staff was very nice and everyone knew English. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the metro and in a very central location with a police station 2 buildings down. I would consider it a 3 star hotel but everything was clean and I can't complain in...

This hotel is supposed to be 4 stars but is not. The room was average for the price. We had to cross into another building and take another elavator to get up to our room. As far as we could tell there was no security. The location was good , but the hotel was gloomy and the sitting areas shabby... More

This hotel was in the perfect location, only a 2 minute walk from the metro and Grand Via. The room was cleaned to a high standard everyday & towels changed on a daily basis! The reception staff could have been more welcoming, they seemed like they didn't want to be there. Good hotel for a trip with friends.. Wouldn't stay... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
