Dated hotel, wi-fi does not work at all in the even if they have it advertised as free. When i notified them that the password is not working, the receptionist seemed to already know that it is not working but said that I can sit...More
Very basic hotel, very central location. Two stars feels too low, but three feels too high. Tatty lobby, pleasant front desk service, "Super 8" quality room. Comfortable bed (two twins pushed together), good sheets. AC was acceptable.
Location is good if you want to swim...More
This hotel is in a fantastic location for tourists to explore. Although it's 40 mins to the airport its very accessible by the Metro. Within minutes you can be on Gran Via or in one of the many Plazas that Madrid has to offer. Furthest...More
is centrally placed between SOL and Gran Via. Walking distances to a lot of famous sights. Cons- terribly noisy at night if room faces street specially in late march when AC is not run and you have to open balcony door. Expensive but basic breakfast....More
The hotel is located on a road just off the Puerta del Sol, so is really convenient for travel and touristy stuff in the city. My single room was at the back of the hotel, so was pretty quiet (apart from the bin lorries in...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.

I stayed there recently and did not find about the shuttle service. As previously mentioned, the taxi service is not unreasonable and it is quite fast (25-30 minutes). Metro is an option as well if you are not carrying a lot of luggage (50 to 60 minutes).
Enjoy your visit to Madrid, it is a great city!
