This is a nice little, well-run hotel with a a few historic touches in the common areas and great staff that is very helpful and accommodating. It is near Plaza del Sol, Plaza de Santa Ana and (our favorite) Plaza Mayor. Walkable to Atocha train station. A coffee shop (opens at 8) is right across the street. Room was nice... More

After much research, I settled on Catalonia Puerta del Sol as the best place to stay for what I wanted to do during my brief first visit. I booked a suite (4th floor) that was clean and comfortable (with a separate lounge area) facing Atocha. With the double windows and great blackout curtains there was no discernible noise at night.... More

Some mentioned it is quiter than the street facing rooms - I agree but you still can't go to sleep with the windows... More

We stayed at this hotel during a city break to catch a Real Madrid home game. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and although the area isn't the greatest, it's in the city centre and has immediate access to the reliable metro and other transport links. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance, and is within... More

Having only been in Madrid once before, I knew I liked the area around del Sol and Plaza Mayor. I found this hotel, and took a chance over the internet. It was lovely, and Aida at the front desk was amazing, upgrading us to a suite, providing info on where to go and also hailing a taxi for us. We... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. It was very convenient - we could walk to practically everywhere we wanted to go, and on Sunday morning, it was only a 15 minute taxi ride to the airport. The room was a little bit on the small side, but it was comfortable and nicely decorated. I thought the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for three nights. The location is great, the hotel cozy, the staff is polite and helpful, but the rooms and the common area didn´t match out expectations. A **** hotel must have a pool and a gym, the bar can´t close at 23 o´clock, the breakfast is expensive (19 EUR/pers.) and... More

Perfect location, nice rooms, and good breakfast. Close to all the attractions as Plaza Mayor Square, Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral, the tourist buses. Also a lot of restaurants and bars in the streets behind the hotel. About 10 minutes walk to the train station, the botanic garden and Park the retiro.

Good hotel. Location excellent. Staff very good and helpful, especially Angela. Rooms have some early morning traffic noise. Unfortunately bar closes at 23:00 and we couldn't get a nightcap despite it not quite being 23:00 as bar was already closed.

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.
