The hotel is convenient, central, walking distance from any attraction. A pleasant staff, helping with any problem. Pleasant rooms of reasonable size. Good breakfast. And the coffee with the afternoon pastry is very cute

This was my 19th of 20 different hotels I stayed at, on travels around Morocco then Spain. I would rank this No.1 for Quietness and No.2 Overall. I loved the lady at the reception in the afternoon and evening - she was very friendly, helpful and chilled out. The man who helped me book a taxi to take me from...

We regret the bad feeling lived in the catalonia Atocha. From our hotel, Catalonia Plaza Mayor, we can understand that unpleasant feeling that in the first instance, that breaks its forecasts. For that reason, we try to compensate that experience so that in its memory only the fulfilled expectations of that trip remain. For your comments we believe we have...

Good central location. Clean, modern rooms - some might say soulless, but that was fine with me! No noise and slept very well. Bathroom doees not offer much privacy, but that did not bother me as I was visiting with my husband. Good value for money. The breakfast was excellent. Very good quality and a lot of choice. It even...

Review based on 130euro/night. Great Staff, very nice and helpful. perfect location MAD. The room was very clean and comfortable. I didn't try the breakfast - too expensive (20?). Will be back in June. Would suggest high floor room and internal view (less noisy).

Thank you for your ratings. We are waiting for you again in June. The interior rooms are very quiet indeed. Pear the others, also they are thanks to the great gram acoustic insulation of the windows. Believe me, all the rooms are very quiet. Rest is insured. See you soon!!!

I visited Madrid to catch the Champions League Semi Final between Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich. I chose this hotel because of its location and the good reviews. The hotel is situated within walking distance to the Plaza Mayor, which is a must go attraction in Madrid and not forgetting a shopping heaven. The hotel is also walking distance to...

We checked into the hotel yesterday. When asking for a room at a higher level to be a bit further away from the street noise, we were told all triple rooms were sold out. After dinner, we came to the front desk asking the same two girls the same question. The only thing is this time we were very persistent...

Madrid is probably My favourite city and I booked this hotel due to its location and great reviews, having never stayed there before. From the moment that I arrived, the staff were extremely welcoming and hospitable. Hotel is spotless and modern. Large bathroom and very comfortable bed. For location, this hotel cannot be beaten.

Travelled to Madrid for business and loved this hotel, great location close to everything (but quiet) and the service was genuinely brilliant. Only whinge would be the bed, make sure you book a room with a king bed rather than 2 singles pushed together (mine slid apart during the night). All n all a lovely hotel and I'll definitely be...

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.
