We stayed here for three nights and could not have been happier. We did stay in a room with a balcony overlooking the palace (which was definitely worth the extra expense). The view was wonderful. The location was prefect for walking and reaching the Metro at the Opera station. Very easy. The room was very clean and included a small... More

We had a large room with a view of the palace, small balcony and comfy bed. Bathroom was updated with a good shower. Reception area is one floor up from ground floor and there is no food service, but help from receptionist is super, and breakfast can be taken at cafe on ground floor, which is a classic. We loved...

The standout attribute of this hotel is the lovely Christina, who runs everything. She was very lovely and helpful to us throughout our stay, and even spoke English with us, which was lucky as I had hardly managed to learn enough Spanish to be travelling in Spain. The hotel itself seems to have been redecorated in recent times, and is... More

Discretely located in a 200 year old building facing the royal palace, this updated charmer has it all - location in the heart of the old city, super friendly and helpful staff, spacious and comfortable rooms. And the very fair rates complete the package! Each night we returned was like coming home, with stories of our adventures and mishaps shared... More

Per my normal style We stayed at the Hostal Central Palace for 7 days Before I detail my review the only reason I am not giving it an Excellent rating was the on the Saturday night there was a large party - not sure if it was within the building but it was extremely noisy. Also on the first night... More

This really is a terrific boutique hotel located just steps away from several exciting parts of Madrid. Christina and her staff really went out of their way to help make our great visit even more special.

Though our cab driver couldn't seem to find the hostal, once we arrived we realized how Central this lovely location was. Our room looked out over the Royal Palace and the Orient Square. Loved hearing the music and watching the dogs play outside. Superb location to many eateries and historic locations. Breakfast was slight but a good quick way to... More

My husband and I enjoyed our one-night stay at Central Palace Madrid. The view of the palace can't be beat. The bed was incredibly comfortable, shower was relaxing, and the staff was very helpful. I highly recommend.

Stayed for an overnight stop on our tour of Spain. Would highly recommend to anyone. It is worth paying the supplement for the palace view rooms. The receptionist was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. I would recommend booking early.

We would never ever exchange this cute, sweet, clean hostal with any luxury expensive hotel.The views are fantastic (Our room was facing a Royal Palace)!!! You could open the window doors and enjoy the views from our balcony! The room is big,... 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.
