We've stayed 4 nights at Arenal apartments: clean, well maintained, heated with nice kitchenette, tv, good wifi connection and not overpriced. Location is great - right in the city center, close to Sol and Opera metro station as well as bus stations. The only minus (obviously not that important) was that after booking and paying via booking.com we were given...

The cleanliness of this place is quite doubtful. I encountered another guest´s hair on the sheets, floors, towels and bathroom tiles. I reported it to the front desk and they told me that no cleaning lady was available until the next day. The manager ended up changing the towels and sheets and cleaned the room a bit more which made...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
