Lovely clean hotel. Good size room and helpful staff. Nothing to complain about. Near everything. Breakfast was perfectly ok. We only really slept and had breakfast here. Nice big shower and lots of hot water.

Walking distance to museums, parks, Palacio Real, and San Miguel Marketplace. Hotel lobby is 21st. century ultra modern. There is a lounge with some sofas at foot of first floor. Room is adequate size….double bed, closet,...

This hotel is in a wonderful location. It has also recently been refurbished. When considering to book this hotel I read the reviews on trip advisor and noticed that readers had said there were refurbishments taking place - I rang the hotel to find out the situation and was informed that the interior was complete but the exterior was still...

Great location, right btween the Puerta del Sol and Opera metro stops. Easy access to all of the central locations. Hotel was nice and clean and staff was very helpful. Due to the location, it can be noisy throughout the night.

The only disappointment was that there is still work going on outside on the exterior of the hotel and we were only had a view of the scaffolding/ plastic...

This hotel has a perfect location for everything in central Madrid. It is decorated in a contemporary style and is very comfortable. Service was generally good. Unfortunately, there is work going on there at the moment and much of the hotel is shrouded in scaffolding but it did not affect the enjoyment of our stay. I would happily stay there...

Hotel Francisco I was a beautiful boutique hotel , the room had a great view of Arenal , the street in front of the hotel is bustling with action all night long which can make it hard to sleep but overall a great place to stay

Challenge from first day to last... As I was arriving at 9:30pm and traveling alone I made arrangements with the hotel to be picked up versus dealing with a taxi. I was told driver would be there with a sign with my name on it. Driver was not there - I called hotel after 30 minutes and they couldn't contact...

This hotel has excellent location, just a few blocks from Puerta del Sol. It has modern decoration and rooms are clean and comfortable. Restrooms are tiny but that is not unusual in Europe, however these in particular have glass sliding doors. The staff is very friendly and they can keep your luggage after check out. Breakfast 9 euro. Overall it...

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.
