    The location was perfect and our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and polite but not super friendly, but tbh that seems the norm in Spain. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it!

    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
