Even during the heat wave, the room was nice and cool. Electric shades kept the room dark, so we slept until noon. We stayed in a duplex, which was great for two people coming from two different time zones. Quiet but minutes from Sol, Opera and Callao.

Hotel is located in the perfect spot for access to all things around Madrid. Great service, very clean, and great breakfast buffet. All of the attendants were very helpful, they even made our reservations for taxis. This is a hidden gem in the middle of Madrid.

Got upgraded to a Dupleix room and it was amazing. Friendly staff, great location, very central and easy to get anywhere from that hotel. Wasn't aware of the free breakfast, I should have been told when I checked in?! Overall, very good place. Would go back there.

We upgraded from the standard room, and got a loft with two bathrooms, which was a nice surprise. We were there for a week, so the additional room was welcome. While not luxurious, it was certainly nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. It even had enough aircon units to keep the room cool during a... More

It's a great choice for travelers who need space or have more than 2 people. Large accommodations, clean, helpful staff, lots of cute little touches (candy, lots of toiletries, ect). The room for 3 comes with a nice loft for privacy. It's trendy and in a great location for walking around central Madrid. The electric blackout curtains were awesome! The... 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.
