Stayed in July 2016 a few weeks since the reopening of the hotel after a thorough renovation by the Gran Melia company. Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Madrid, but away from the hustle and bustle of the main central plazas. A quick 15 minute walk to most sites, and a stone throw away from the Royal Palace.... More

This hotel has just been opened and swimming pool and outdoor garden are not yet finished. We stayed a total of 6 nights spread over 2 stays and the staff were quick to learn our names and address us by name. Some staff struggle with English but overall all staff are very friendly. It was evident in the mornings that... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
