I recently had a very enjoyable stayed the Catalonia Puerta del Sol. The Rooms were very nice and the beds comfortable. The Bar area downstairs was great and perfect for a drink before you head out. I would recommend this hotel as it's within walking distance of a lot of attractions and also there is a subway stop 2 mins... More

When we first arrived at Catalonia Puerta deal Sol, we were simply hoping for an early check-in. When we arrived, not on we're we able to check-in, but they were kind enough to upgrade our room to a suite in recognition of our 10 year anniversary. That helped set the stage for a good trip. From that moment the staff... More

This hotel was a great find and definitely underrated. The rooms were extremely clean and modern, with cute little balconies overlooking the courtyard within the hotel. The staff here were extremely friendly and always looking for another way to improve our stay.

Great location near the Puerta del Sol and centrally located between major tourist attractions. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean with a nice, large bathroom. The breakfast buffet was quite good and is nice way to start the day.

Great hotel, perfect central location, and best of all - amazing staff! AIDA at the front desk was particularly helpful, and so happy to offer assistance and advice- a great asset to the hotel! A 'must-stay'for Madrid.

I stayed at this hotel while visiting Madrid with a friend. The best feature is its location, close to all the attractions and shopping area. The staff was very friendly and they could organize tickets to a corrida for us, always there to answer your questions. You can use the swimming pool facilities to a nearby hotel. We were happy...

The bed was very large and comfortable. The room was spacious. The staff was very friendly - they all knew our son's name by the end. Great location, close to metro and old town. We had a great trip! One downside is they allowed smoking in the atrium, which you had to walk through to get to the elevators. Also... More

Had a few hours between flights. Two changes on the metro and around 35 minutes to puerto del sol. Nice big shopping area. Outside between many big cjain stores and some coffee shops. Not far on foot to the local market which is good for a quick bite and some atmosphere. Also a short from main plaza called plaza mayor.... More

the hotel benefits from a good location close to many of the main sites to see in Madrid. the rooms are average. the staff was nice enough to add an extra bed in the room (with charge). the relatively low price makes up for the room but I believe you can get better options in Madrid.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
