“Good value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

A very nice hotel located in the city centre. I can really recommend this hotel. Friendly staff, very nice rooms (I stayed at the fourth floor and my room was HUGE) with everything you need for a pleasant stay such as a very nice bathroom, nice interior, a big and comfortable bed and clean and fresh. The breakfast was very nice with a high standard. A funny thing happened when I went down for breakfast at around 0900 and came back 40 mins later the maid had already made my room, brilliant!
Only negative thing I can come up with was the poor standard of the free wifi. When the wifi occasionally worked it was very slow (but it worked).

Booked a double room. Staff are fantastic especially Esther, Caqui & Ricardo (Not sure of the spelling of the names). They are lovely and went out of their way to make us feel welcome, answer numerous questions, indulge my fledgling Spanish and be generally helpful.

Please note that only the superior rooms (much more costly) and above have extra facilities.
This hotel would have been perfect if they had just put coffee and tea making facilities in all the rooms not just the more expensive ones, all the others extras like bath robes etc we could do without 8-). I couldn´t understand why they don´t supply this basic service as the outlay for them is minimal. Perhaps they want people to upgrade to the next level?

We didn´t have the hotel breakfast as found a bakery round the corner selling freshly squeezed juice, coffee, toast etc for under 4 euros, a fraction of the price of the hotels.
The location is excellent. We ate at the reasonably priced La Parilla Argentine restaurant twice. Viva Madrid restaurent was overpriced for what it was. Great fruit grocery round the corner too and a Spa supermarket further past the square open 7 days a week.

The beds were way too hard though this could just be the way Spanish like their beds?

Well placed for all the museums. Just remember that most museums shut on a Monday, we did´t and this was no one´s but our own fault. :-p

Would consider returning if in Madrid.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room as Spanish merrymaking can go on into the wee hours especially over the weekend...

On Calle del Prado near Puerta del Sol. The location is perfect for Madrid. What was more surprising was the hotel itself. The rooms are gigantic and decorated with a chic traditional style. The staff speak fluent English and go far out of their way to help you out with meals, bags, etc. The price point was surprisingly modest for Madrid. I have stayed here twice, and would repeat everytime I go to Madrid.

We had a great stay at the Catalonia Las Cortes Hotel. The staff were friendly throughout our stay. The hotel does a great job with combining historical elements of the building with modern amenities. Although our room featured a balcony with a street view, the double-doors kept any noise from entering our room. The great location is an easy walk to the Prado, the Reina Sofia, Puerta del Sol, and all of the great bars and restaurants in between.

We stayed here for three nights with our seven year old daughter. As other reviews mention, it is very well located within walking distance of Prado, Retiro park (good for children) and right beside Plaza St Ana which is fun and lively. We had booked an ordinary double room but when we arrived, we felt it was a little small by the time the foldaway bed was put up for our daughter. We asked if they had a bigger room, which luckily they did although we had to upgrade (approx 50 euros a night), however it was well worth it as the extra room made all the difference. The staff were very helpful and always cheerful and although our room was on the street side, you don't hear any noise because of the double glazing. Would thoroughly recommend and would stay again although as some other reviews have mentioned, we also did not have the all you can eat breakfast in the hotel @ 19 euros each, choosing to go and find a cafe nearby.
