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.

This hotel is very centrally located next to shopping streets and food places so it's never boring there. We never felt unsafe despite some sketchy characters walking nearby. The hotel's reception was ok, and they could improve with a bit more English and friendliness, I think.

Reception staff were friendly. The front of the reception desk and the keycard holder says 'welcome' in many languages, but unfortunately the room is not very welcoming, eg just 4 hangars, no bath plug, no bath mat, poor lighting making reading difficult, no minibar, generally

Get the metro. It costs €5 and takes about 40 minutes. There are 4 metro station near to the hotel Rex, the closest one is Callao, exit onto the Gran Via and turn left. The hotel is about 100m away.

"Best location"
"Away from lifts and lower floor - to save walking if lifts occupied all the time"
"Our room was behind lift. Room was best view also, But no WIFI as router was in another side of hotel."
"Twin rooms for the views and double rooms for a quieter night"
"The Higher The Better"
