“Just wat I was looking for...”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We came very late, our welcome was very professional and also so attentive. The room was great,not be very spacy,but just what we needed. The view was unexpectedly charming. The hotel is situated just at the the corner of Plaza Mayor. The breakfast was delicious, nothing compares with spanish sausages and juices. I‘d love, love return again!

Room Tip: We had corner room with the view on the square

My son, daughter-in-law, and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Madrid. It was located within walking distance to many places of interest in Madrid, including public transportation. The staff was very helpful and very competent to communicate in both Spanish and English (perhaps more languages, but these were the 2 languages that we needed). We choose to share one room, and the staff accommodated this wish by bringing in an extra, full sized twin bed (not a cot) that was very comfortable (my bed!). I would definitely choose this hotel on a next visit to Madrid.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel. It is located just off Plaza Mayor. We walked to the Museo del Prado. There are many restaurants and cafes nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful and our room though small was comfortable and clean. And to top it all, it is very reasonably priced.

This little hotel is located in an excellent location, a few steps from Plaza Mayor and the Sol metro stop. Rooms are small, but as space is a premium, that's expected. We got one of the "deluxe" rooms, which had a single bed large enough for two people. The hotel also has an excellent breakfast for a few euros more. The coffee is outstanding! the hotel was comfortable and clean. The room had windows that overlooked the street below, and was a nice addition. Staff are courteous, attentive and speak excellent English. Rates were very reasonable. The hotel has a small but functional and reliable lift.

The central Madrid location of this hotel is ideal. I stayed 10 days and was able to walk to most of the Madrid sights or take Metro from the nearby Puerto del Sol station. Plaza Mayor and the main Madrid tourist information office is very close. There are lots of nearby restaurant and eatery options. The hotel staff was welcoming and helpful. My single room was small but had everything I needed and the AC worked well. I could hear people talking as they passed by in the hallway but it wasn't really a problem. The breakfast is good and offers many choices. They have a loaner hair dryer at the front desk so you don't need to bring one. My requests for an extra pillow and more hangers were accommodated.

As others have said, the Hotel Plaza Mayor is very centrally located - near the Plaza (but not on it), the Puerta del Sol (metro and trains), and other major sites. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. Given it's location, the price was very reasonable. I would definitely stay here again!
