We stayed at the Coloso for 4 days in September then returned for 2 days after spending 4 days in Valencia. The reason for the return is that we were flying from Madrid back to Edinburgh. Just a few words on that - we travelled to Valencia and back on the fast TVG train - a great way to travel... More

I have booked this hotel because it is close to the hotel I usually stay in Madrid (that was fully booked) as it is easy to get to my clients offices in town. I arrived in reception and have been asked to go to the building next door. They gave me a room in the first floor, really dark, had... More

The beds were very firm. After one night both of us had sore backs and did not sleep well. The customer service amongst the hotel staff varied in response to this issue. One person was not willing to transfer rooms but gradually would show us rooms after some persuading. This person rolled her eyes when we asked to see another... More

This hotel is in a great location and the room is very good value for money. The room was basic but clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Only downside is the hotel only serves breakfast and there is no bar. It would have been nice to be able to grab a drink in the hotel.

Having a metro stop at either end of the street 2 minutes walk away made El Coloso a great hotel from which to explore the whole of Madrid. Plaza de Espana via Ministerios straight to aiport took about an hour. Modern Hotel with very clean spacious rooms. Good breakfast buffet with hot and cold dishes, pastries, fruit and cereals.

Stayed for 3 nights for my first trip to Madrid. The hotel was clean, presentable, well staffed and in a prime location. The breakfast was very good and the staff even allowed us to eat at short notice before checking out at 0630am which I found very helpful. That's pretty much all the amenities the hotel offers. We got put... More

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

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.
