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

Located at center of Madrid and near metro station so you can go there easily from Barajas airport by metro subway followed by just 5 minutes walking. This hotel is a good choice if you like walking around because it is very close to major shopping area and other tourist hotspots. While I was there for business trip, I always... More

The title sums it up... This is quite a big hotel, and can be slightly confusing getting around (it has 2 entrances,and may have been 2 separate buildings in the past) But don't let it put you off... The rooms are big and neat, if a little tired. The breakfast is well laid out, with good variety, and the service... More

The location is great,right in the centre of Madrid, you can walk to the main tourist attractions and metro stations. 3 minutes walk to Gran Via where you find lots of shops. Breakfast was nice but could be better. The staff was really helpful.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
