“"Clean, Comfortable, Contemporary and Conveniently Located"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Just 10 minutes walk away from Plaza Mayor and from the Plaza del Dol and 12 minutes walk away from the Prado and the Thyssen Museum this hotel is a highly recommended one for any trip to Madrid. A recently renovated one, it has a very modern feel and iambiance to it. The breakfast buffet is generous.
You can't go wrong with this hotel in terms of value for money.

The hotel is in a great locaton close to all sites, shops, bars etc. We booked a room direct with the hotel as they had an offer of a free cocktail on arrival (which we did not receive) and early check in and late check out (which we did receive).

The staff were welcoming and spoke good english, we received a room at the front of the hotel, looking over C/Atocha which we thought would have been noisy but to our suprise it was extremely quiet.

The room was large, clean and comfortable, with modern fixtures & fittings, the bathroom had both a bath and power shower.

We did not use any of the hotels facilities, but had a little look at the gym, bar etc and all looked ok, the restuarant seemed pricey so we ate at Sibarix restaurant opposite the hotel, which is well worth a visit.

If visiting Madrid again, would definately stay at this hotel.

Just everything one would want for a romantic get a way. The room was large and well appointed. The staff went out of its way to accommodate every request. Each morning was a delight to wake to.The continental breakfast was sufficient , and a bakery was across the street. Plaza Mayor is at the end of the street. The restaurant next door serves typical Spanish fare.

Tip: If you book directly with the hotel through their website you get free late checkout till 3PM, a small bottle of cava and bottles of water.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived at midnight and were upgraded to a premier room as the hotel was fully booked. We chose a room facing the courtyard which was nice and peacefully quiet. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Nice lobby with a few couches.
Bathroom was lovely with a very powerful rain shower as well as a telephone handheld shower.
Heated towel rail and a powerful hairdryer were nice touches.
WIFI worked perfectly. Just had to log back into it everytime you locked your smart phone.
Our PREMIER room was spacious for european standards and had lots of doors and windows that opened into mini spanish style balconies. Location was very central within 5-10 mins walking distance. Plaza santa Anna was just around the corner which is the hub of restaurants.
We had breakfast at the bakery across the street.
Highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice, clean, modern, pleasant stay with friendly staff in Madrid.

Nice modern and clean hotel, there is free Wi Fi and the reception was friendly and helpful.The pleasant think is that the hotel is situated close to several interesting sites that someone can visit and that makes the hotel more attractive.Rooms was ok and big enough with nice furniture.

We visited Hotel Catalonia Plaza Mayor last weekend. From the moment you enter the staff is very friendly and helpful. The decor is contemporary. The price is right and the location is central. We were able to walk and explore for hours from this location. There is also public transportation readily available. The rooms are very quiet and cozy. The space is huge in comparison to other "Typical European hotels". I used the gym and it does have cardio machines but no weights. The gym also had Flat screen tvs with many channels available in English.

Tips, if you don't want the maid to come in then place the do not disturb sign on your door. Internet connection is not strong nor is the cell phone signal inside the room and we were on the first floor.

Room Tip: Internet and cellphone signal in the room is not strong.
