The hotel is located right in city center and less than 1 minute walk to Sol metro. I booked a single room for 1 night. The room rate was reasonable and comparable to other hotels in the area. The hotel is located on the 3rd level. A small elevator is available. The lobby is sizable. The single room is quite...

Great location, just 50 mts from Plaza Puerta del Sol. The place is very clean and has everything an easy-traveler need. Perfect if you just need a place to sleep since it doesn't offer a lot of facilities. The staff is available for help and comfort. The room is small, and the bed is fairly comfortable. TV has limited channels.

And all this for a super...

I was apprehensive about staying in a hostel. The Pretoria changed my perception. Super location right at the Plaza del Sol. Felt very safe. Very nice hosts. Rooms were extremely clean. Good windows. Quiet. Only negative--hair dryer did not work. Must pay 1 euro to use room safe. I would definitely stay here again when in Madrid. Note that all...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

“If you want a quiet room, ask for a room to the innerd yard. Not a nice view but away from the street noise.”

“Upper rooms are better since the street could be a little noisy”

“All rooms are different. If you don't like your room you may ask to see other available rooms. I especially liked the 4 th floor bc the elevator does not stop there.”
