My husband and I have both traveled through Europe before, so when we checked into Dos Castillas for a few nights' stay in Madrid, we were expecting a tiny room with minimal amenities and lots of street noise. Boy, were we amazed and incredibly pleased!...More

Stayed at Hotel Castillas with my husband from Apr 12th to 16th.Made our decision to stay here based on good reviews. Bit surprised to see it has dropped in the ratings recently but then I would agree that its initial rating was perhaps too high....More

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.

Catch the metro to Nuevo Ministerios where you will need to change trains The nearest stop is Callao which is just off Gran Via a five minute walk to the hotel. There is also a metro at Puerto del Sol which is also only five to ten minute walk from hotel. Taxis may get stuck in traffic so can be more expensive 30 to 40 euro. Exit Callao station onto Gran Via , take 2nd or 3rd turning right hotel is on the left, look up for hotel name. To try traditional tapas and a great evening try adventurous appetites tour, I can highly recommend it for a great night out.
