My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Francisco 1 for three nights at the end of March 2017. The hotel is in a great location close to everything which is why we chose it. It was undergoing renovation in parts at the time of our visit but it did not cause any concern. The hotel is modern with tiles...

We booked a superior room with balcony. To our disappointment the balcony was covered in scaffolding and plastic. Our superior room turned into a windowless room with no view out. In addition we never got the air conditioning to work. We slept with the plastic covered door open. The street below is pedestrian only. You can hear the noise of...

It was in a good location. we could walk to almost everything.Linens were first class. Breakfast was good, however the same eggs everyday. Coffee could have been better. They need to keep the cold food cold and the hot food hot....

My first stay in Madrid as a solo traveller! The most amazing thing about this hotel is the location - you could not ask for a better setting to explore the city! On a busy street there are plenty of places to eat and drink. The rooms are well decorated and modern and the bathroom has a good powerful shower....

Sorry in advance for the long review, this experience was way more than we expected in all the wrong ways. SHORT VERSION: I would not stay at this hotel again, especially not in the near future as the construction continues. Some of the interior features are beautiful, but there are so many amazing places to stay in Madrid that you...

Needed to add a day to our stay and hotel was able to accommodate our last minute request. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Love the location - close to many site seeing locations, on a pedestrian only street so no traffic to contend with and lots of shopping around the hotel.

We had a room facing the main street, so there was a ton of noise due to construction just outside our window. There was a layer of tarp or some kind of material blocking off the view due to the construction, which was fine. There were a couple of problems with this: (1) there was no air flow and the...

We stayed for six days and we had a great time. Stuff was very helpful and friendly while everything was well explained. Rooms were very comfortable and extremely clean. Location was just perfect. We cant wait until we get back to Madrid and especially to that hotel.

Hotel arranged our transfer from the airport 30 euro's each way. We stayed 3 nights in a twin room. The hotel is undergoing a refurbishment we stayed in one of the older rooms which was a disappointment especially as there was scaffolding outside our window. Having said that the room was fine, clean and met all our needs if a...

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.
