The location is great. Several minutes walk to reach everywhere. The rooms are old and not refurbished. Was with a stroller for my baby, very difficult access to the hotel and rooms. Pricy for the product, the staff seem to always be busy and be short of time. The breakfast is decent.

Stayed for 3 nights on our Leger tour. Other than the absence of a bar we couldn't really find too much to complain about. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with lots to choose from and not too busy. We had a dinner package and all our meals were nice. The brown marks on the marble floor... More

Booked this hotel as it was a very affordable rate in Central Madrid. - Location is excellent. Next to Callao, Gran Via or Plaza de España. Quiet street. - Wifi works very well. - Despite the 4 stars, the hotel is a bit oldish (not to the same standards as most modern four stars in Spain) yet very clean. It... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Good hotel with friendly staff and a GREAT location. My main concern is security. Anyone can go in and out of the hotel without any filters. Fortunenatly, i did not experience or feel any threats but i would recomend to the hotel to take a serious look at this. My other issue was wifi. Had a... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a Leger trip. The hotel is very well located for walking to the main points of interest in Madrid. However it does not cater for lunch or evening meals, except for parties. Also it does not have a bar! The room we had was ok, perfectly clean but with the most... More

This hotel's only feature is the fact that it's in a decent area. We had booked 4 bedrooms and in two, if not more, of them the floorboards were lifted. The reception is the only area that's nice. The rooms are nothing like the photos. The hotel is an old apartment building and I'm pretty sure people still live there.... More

Walking distance to the city centre. But, i should tell that you have to carry your baggage about 10 stairs to talk to the reception. They have taken long time to give me room though it was booked two weeks before. I could not go to my room (421) through lift directly (some portion of stair i had to walk... More

The location is fantastic. You are walking distance for all the main attractions in Madrid city center. The staff try to be nice but need more training. The rooms are clean and decent. Everything is decent and average, including breakfast.

The hotel I would rate at best as decent for the price. What is important (and might be interesting) is a very good location and close to the metro station. Neither the equipment nor the service can not be described as excellent - just decent. Despite this, I would recommend this hotel with a clear conscience.

Except for the location, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. We were 3 people and got 3 completely different rooms One was really small with a big terrace, one had a small balcony and one had no balcony and the view was ... the inside walls. Towels smelled like vinegar. There was rust and cracks in the bathroom.... 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.
