It's pretty centrally located, close to a couple of metro stations and right next to the Gran Via. Service at the front desk was very good. We got a room with 2 single beds and the next morning we asked for a single double bed for the remainder of our stay. This was arranged without any problems. Breakfast is ok,... More

We arrived early and front desk Jesus did its best to provide our 8 rooms before 11 am. Making sure Housekeeping was working hard. It's a blessing nowadays to deal with staff that understands the stress linked to travel and air travel in particular. Most long haul flights land in Madrid in the morning, being able to do check in... More

It is close to the main attractions and the rooms are ok. We got a room with a terrace. It has a nice view of the city where you can rest and spend some time. Breakfast has some variety but if you stay more than 3 days, you can feel you eat the same things over and over. This hotel... More

Was at this hotel for a weekend during the "Dia de la Musica" festival in Madrid. Staff was very helpful and friendly and the hotel is very well located, 5 minutes from Gran Via and close to Callao metro station so it great connected to other parts of the city. highly recommended!

I was looking for a hotel in Madrid which offers a guaranteed early check-in (since our flight was arriving at 7:30am), and Hotel Sterling seemed like the best option. On their website, it is possible to guarantee a 10am early check-in for only a 20 euro one-time fee, which is extremely reasonable. Moreover, for an extra 15 euros per night,... More

Very good location in the heart of Madrid. Excellent service from all the staff especially the reception desk. Breakfast was ok. Hotel is very clean and very quite considering the busy location. I would definitely recommend and go back

Hotel Sterling is in a great location in Madrid, close to everything and walking distance to the Prado and shopping. The breakfast is a European breakfast that is good enough to set you up for a day of sightseeing. I would stay here again.

The location of the hotel is great, and the staff is really helpful (specially Carlota she's in the afternoons). The rooms are an ok size but for us (3 people) it seemed as if our room couldn't fit the third bed, to be able to sit on a chair or open the closet you had to move the bed, every... More

Pleasant hotel, very conveniently located. The room was small but clean and had all you would expect. The air con wasn't working but opening the window worked, and didn't make it too noisy. Breakfast was fine. Not a huge selection but plenty of it - bread, toast, meat, cheese, fruit and pastries. Excellent value for money.

The location is great, walking distance from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran via. Large and clean bedroom. The buffet breakfast was just great and rich. Next time I'll visit Madrid, I'll definitely stay here again.
