We booked the Catalonia Las Cortes. When we arrived, there was construction in the street and they offered to transfer us to the Catalonia Gaudi for the same rate and they threw in the breakfast. When the hotel hired taxi took us to the Gaudi, we checked in and told them we would be staying tor 4 nights. They told us they only had a room for one night. I told the receptionist that I was not about to move to another hotel. She proceeded to call the Catalonia Las Cortes and gave us a room for the 4 nights. The rooms were large but outdated and dark. No AC and it was warm in Madrid. No help with our luggage. Bathroom was modern and clean. Good breakfast but expensive. Location was great for exploring Madrid. We were able to walk to all the sights of interest and did not have to take the metro. The staff was not very pleasant and seemed bothered when we asked for information or assistance. Maybe it is a Madrid thing, but hotel personnel in Andalusia were much more pleasant than the folks we encountered in Madrid hotel. By the way, we speak fluent Spanish. Bottom line, I would pick another hotel for my next trip to Madrid. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Two stars at best.
