This is a good centrally located medium-price hotel. The hotel is within a five-minute stroll of the Plaza Mayor. Museums like the Prado are a healthful 20-minute walk down Calle Atocha. The staff knows their city well, and they can guide you to your favorite destination, such as the barrio Ginés, where you can sip the best chocolate in the...

Nice hotel, easy to get to, our room on the ground floor was clean, lots of room with large flat screen TV. A great central hotel, just off the main plaza, perfect for a short break with everything you need

Stayed here with my sister, both in our 20s. Was pleasantly surprised by the room. Clean, big with nice big windowed doors overlooking the road and the little square outside. Beds were uncomfortable but there was lots of extra bedding and pillows in the cupboard I used to pad it out a bit. It was extremely noisy as we were...

Just off the Plaza Mayor square, this is a super location for a weekend city break. Room was small, but clean , and the bathroom was well appointed. Comfy beds, surprisingly quiet location, with very short walk to Sol train station for link to airport ( only €2.60 single to airport.) Lots of great places to eat and drink, and...

The room was fab. Definately get the Superior doubles - they are worth the extra. Three juliette balconies on a corner overloooking the square in room 403 was just great. Staff were very, very friendly, jolly and extremely helpful Breakfast? - if you're an English chap then relax; scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon all unlimited from chaffing dishes is available.

We travelled to Spain at least a dozen of times in the past ten years and, anytime we are in Madrid, we stay at Hotel Plaza Mayor. We loved the location and, until recently, we liked the service. For our upcoming trip to Madrid, we booked this hotel via Hotels.com. We made an honest mistake of selecting February instead of...

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.
