We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Emperador in Madrid. This is a great hotel if you wish to combine sightseeing with relaxation as the location is great and the rooftop pool and sun terrace provide a welcome treat after busy days visiting nearby attractions and bargain hunting in the surrounding shops. The hotel is...

We stayed in the emperador for three nights in a triple room and although I would agree the room was not 4 star but it was lovely. It was clean and spacious enough. The linen and towels etc were changed daily it was only the wall paper that was a little worn. The hotel was very quiet even though it...

Having read loads of horror stories about this hotel, I have to say they should have stayed in a club room. We only paid a little extra each night for this and it was excellent. Very large room looking out on to the Gran Via main street (we even watched the Gay Pride parade go past from our room!). The...

Stayed for 4 nights and had a pleasant experience. The room was clean but small and I wouldn't consider it 4* standard. Had a view of a brick wall and as the room was joined to another we could hear voices/TV through the wooden door. Toiletries provided weren't great (would have liked some conditioner!) there is a hairdryer. There is...

My girlfriend and I booked a Club Room in the Emperador for 3 nights. On check-in (after getting ripped off by that nice taxi driver) we discovered our room simply stank of cigarettes. Bizarrely, the hotel's website does not allow guest to specify a non-smoking room when booking. My partner rang reception to complain and was told in no uncertain...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on 17th June and whilst it was a nice looking hotel and a good location the rooms were small and basic. There are other hotels in the area which are much cheaper . A good point about the hotel is its roof top pool which is pretty but be warned it is...

I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Emperador during my stay in Madrid in May 2008. This classic beauty is in the heart of Madrid located on the Gran Via.

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.
