Hotel is stylish in the lobby area and rooms are decent but there was a weird smell in the loft landing. Our booking was made as couple and we were surprised when we got to our room that we had two separate beds which I thought was annoying and reception should have asked or given us the option at least....

Hotel Francisco I is located in an excellent location. Right in the center and all the places are nearby. Really strategic location especially for first time visitors who want to cover all the mainstream tourists places nearby. Room is simple and clean. Shower is good. Staffs are helpful. The car they booked for us to the airport is amazing.

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.
