On arriving here I was slightly skeptical that I had chosen correctly. However, as my stay here was to be short and most of the time I would be out and about it served it's purpose very well. The room that I had was very...More
I think this as a good choice for those on a budget: the location is
quite close to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Major and within walking distance of the major museums. The bed was comfortable and all rooms are en suite.
Considering the price I paid, the hotel is OK. I must say that the rooms are quite small, and in the summer can be very hot considering that the air conditioner is additional. Is very close to the center, too bad there are prostitutes around...More

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.
