We stayed two nights in catalonia plaza to start our road trip in Spain. Hotel's location is ideal for exploring the popular tourist attractions and the old Madrid by foot. It's close enough but not too close to attract loud revellers on the street. The hotel staff is polite, courteous and very helpful with advise and guidance. The hotel facilities... More

Big and clean rooms with not so nice view unless your windows are faceing street. It would be perfect to have at least little swimingpool after long... More

Brilliant hotel within walking distance of all sites, although would suggest metro might be an idea, which was simple to use. Didn't use facilities of hotel other than our room on floor 5, but that was first class, staff on reception very helpful

A great hotel! Perfect spot for sightseeing and dining in a relatively quiet area with a local feel! The afternoon treats at the hotel were a brilliant bonus and the staff were superb! The main sights are within easy walking distance and the restaurants, tapas bars and cafes around nearby Plaza Santa Ana and Anton Martin offered lovely local dining... More

The Catalonia Plaza Mayor is in an excellent location on a busy street filled with shops and restaurants. I felt safe there as a female traveling alone; the staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. The room was comfortable and met all of my requirements. The bathroom was spacious and there were plenty of towels. I walked easily to the Museo... More

Its a decent hotel, budget friendly and nicely located. A good comparison would be a Novotel hotel...pretty much the same standards. Pros: -Budget friendly -Great location, all the sites at walking distance. Atocha train station is near (12 mns walk) which is convenient for aiport transfers. -Great breakfast buffet - Free drinks (sparkling wine) and snacks at the bar between... More

This really was a nice "hidden gem" on Atocha...a street that on first view can be very daunting. It is close to the main Plaza and to many other restaurants. If you are looking to use Madrid as a springboard for other day trips, the train station is a short 15 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms were large,... More

The hotel is very centrally located, the staff were cordial rather than friendly, amenities worked fine. Over 50 channels on the TV but only 4 in English, 2 news channels and 2 entertainment, no Sky or HBO. The room overlooked the hotel courtyard which was a little noisey. Definitely a nice & modern hotel but a little pricey!

Located on a main street, halfway between the main train station (Atocha) and Plaza Mayor both which are an easy walk! Friendly service and very helpful staff! Rooms are well kept and the wifi was very good too!

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.
