“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had a fantastic long weekend here. The hotel is located 3 mins from Sol and 10 min from many other places of interest. It is perfect for evenings with restaurants in all directions very close.
I recommend paying to upgrade to a terrace on the top floor, we had two hours sunbathing each day after sight seeing, not many city centre hotels you can do that!
Many people have complained of noise but by having the top floor terrace overlooking the street we experienced no noise at all and slept right through!
The room was spacious and a decent bathroom.
The breakfast was fine with both cooked and cereals and croissants etc.
Staff all polite and helpful.
Overall, for a good city centre hotel at a decent price you would struggle to do better.

Room Tip: Top floor terrace was worth the upgrade.

Just returned from 5 night stay at Carlos V. Hotel has a perfect location close to all tourist attractions as well as restaurants, cafes and shops. Requested a quiet room so was situated on back side of hotel - view was not good but room was quiet and not much time spent in room anyway. Room and bathroom were small but neat and clean. The only negative thing was very uncomfortable beds. Comfortable lounge area on 1st floor and very friendly, accommodating staff. Would stay there again.

Carlos V, is perfectly located, with friendly staff and clean neat rooms.
The Hotel is extremly close to many famous sightseeing experiences, Royal Palace, Retiro Park, SOL, Plaza Espanol and many more.....

Metro train station stop are only steps away, and the Area is extremly exciting, I would recommend the Carlos V to everybody, one minor drawback is the street noise, but we enjoyed it as part of the experience

Room Tip: If you are Madrid, Carlos V is the place to stay, very close and exciting place. We had a room with...

Just back from 4 nights staying at Carlos V. If you want a centrally located hotel you could not have better, however beware the noise. We were at the front on the 4th floor and noise all night long from pedestrians, shop deliveries. Hotel was very clean and offered a good breakfast. Rooms are basic with very small bathrooms (room 406) but then you get what you pay for

We stayed here on the first leg of our Spain trip. The hotel was in a great location, near and within walking distance to great shopping, tourist attractions and public transportation. The hotel was clean and had wifi which enabled us to check information from our smartphones. Even though it was centrally located it was off the beaten track and we did not hear any noise from the street.

Great location the hotel has a pick up service by mini bus to and from the Airport for 10 euros phone the hotel direct to organize .We really enjoyed our 3 night break.Location by Cortes Ingais dept store and Sol Metro the metro is safe and clean high security .Great cheap Tapas y Canas bar at the bottom of the street.Although the wall paper in the room was a bit tired looking but extremely clean ,the lovely dinning room and service make up for the less glamorous room decor.The staff ware really helpful. Good value for money ...please visit the Bar los Angeles in Calle Costanilla los Angeles a five minute walk from Calle Arenal turn right follow the road about 4 streets down free tapa with every drink and free peanuts in a big wooden basket ,everyone throws the shells on the floor ,wonderful place and so cheap .

Location, Location, Location .... absolutely brilliant location slap bang in the hustle and bustle of Madrid, therefore a short walk to almost anything or anywhere that you would want to go. Not the most cleanest/modern hotel in the world but it is good value for money and i assume that you will not be staying in the hotel all day and night anyway ;-). Madrid is excellent for a weekend away, even in Oct weather is warm so ideal for strolling around. Lots of nice places to eat, go off the main square onto side streets for best food places for authentic food and much cheaper food too. enjoy you will have a great time !!!!
