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.

The hotel is absolutely stunning, the location is great and my room was lovely. The bed has to be the biggest bed I've ever seen in a hotel. First I will say I enjoyed my stay here. I do not have any complaints, but this hotel is not for everyone. It is a little stuffy.

Located on a pedestrianised shopping street and even though busy you do not hear street noise. Just minutes walk from Gran Via metro and so easy to get around the city. Even though the staff do not speak English, the odd basic hello, thank you, good night and smile goes a long

A good choice if good value and a central location is what you're after. Madrid is a very walkable city and I walked everywhere from here. It's buzzy - in the centre of things - and can get a bit noisy therefore. And the Spanish can be late night revellers. The facilities
