Location is perfect. Easy to walk to pretty much anything you'll want to see in Madrid, and 2-minute walk to the metro if you need it. Rooms are clean and pleasant. Ask for a balcony, several of the rooms have them. The people are extremely pleasant, but they'll leave you alone if that's what you want. Amazingly, they remembered our...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in January 2007.The location was great,step out of the hotel and you are in shopping heaven!-all pedestrianised. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the Palacio Real which is well worth a visit. The hotel is very clean and comfortable-nothing flash but perfectly adequate.

My wife and I stayed for 5 days in January 2007. We were happy with reception staff who were helpful. The 2nd floor room faced out to the street and was very noisy during the night due to loud revellers otherwise the room was very satisfactory. The bar/ dining room/ sitting room/ computer work station was very pleasant - the...

Stayed here on a mid-week break and chose the hotel because of it's central location. The hotel is a bit dated but perfectly adequate with a better than average bathroom for a budget hotel. We did not try the food here as being in the middle of Madrid, why bother? If you are intereested in the Art Galleries, they are...

Just returned home from a wonderful weekend in Madrid. The Hotel was fantastic for the price. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, good value breakfast. The location is perfect for sightseeing and shopping. Recommend the Madrid Vision tour bus at EUR 14.50.

Stayed at this hotel in Oct 2006, very happy with the choice. Location could hardly be more central. Prado, Royal Palace, Retiro Park all within walking distance. Reasonable sized room, bathroom very clean. Be careful with your booking - we found that breakfast wasn't included so that was quite a costly extra. However, the dining room is very nice, just...

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.
