The location is great, just in front of Plaza Mayor. On the other hand the room was not that great with old matress. Bathroom so small that the door could not be completly open and shower same space issue. If you rather be well located than comfortable go for it.

We stayed our last night in Spain before going to the airport. It was a perfect location as we were able to walk to the plaza and buy some espadrilles on an offshoot street, plus the local cookie shop was fantastic! The room had a balcony looking to the gate to the plaza. The beds were comfortable, bathroom was great.... More

The room was clean and had a great view of what was going on in the street. The staff members were exceptionally kind and helped us find local attractions, restaurants, and clubs on several occasions. The WiFi did not work very well in the rooms during the evening hours, but the receptionist was very sweet and offered to reset it... More

We booked this hotel based on their location, which is excellent, and pictures of rooms on their website. Unfortunately, we were given a dark dreary hole of a room. The "window" looked out on a ventilation shaft. The security gate was broken. Curtains had to be kept closed anyway as opposite window was only a few feet away. We were... More

Right off the Plaza Mayor and easy walk to Puerta Del Sol. Our room was clean and fairly large by European standards. Bathroom was large and modern, very clean. We had the room with the window right behind the flags so we had a nice view of the square that leads to the Plaza Mayor. Hotel staff was so nice... More

There is nothing to rave about at this hotel per se, and that is probably part of its charm and the reason it remains affordable in such a fantastic location. It is simply a clean, well-maintained, affordable establishment with an accommodating staff in the city's perfect location. I opted for a superior room, and it was well worth a few... More

This is a must stay hotel. The location is excellent but the most important aspect of this business is the staff who try to make the stay as good as it can be. I had a wonderful stay for 3 days at the Hotel Plaza Mayor and would recommend it to any traveller.

Tiny room with double bed. Can barely get around the bed which kept sliding around. The biggest problem with my room, and i suspect most others, is that the only heat in the room comes from the a/c conduit near the ceiling! No matter how high the heat, you create a cool draft around bed level where one spends most... More

Very central and within walking distance to most places, lot's of restaurants in the area. It's situated in a quite area just off plaza mayor. We found it to be quite cosy and comfy, The hotel rooms were clean and we had a street view. Very nice friendly staff. The breakfast was also very good.

The hotel is very centrally located, and we could walk to most attraction places - gran via, puerta del sol, San Miguel etc. it's close proximity to puerta del sol and plaza mayor makes it really convenient and shops close much later so there is no problem in getting a late dinner. There is a small Chinese provision shop along... More
