We had a 3 night stay at the Hotel Carlos V and would definitely stay there again. The location is excellent and you can walk to all the main sights (including the Estadio Santiago Bernbeu, but be prepared for a long walk ... we got the metro back!). The hotel itself was spotless, excellent buffet breakfast and our triple room...

My wife and I have recently just returned from a 3 night stay at the Carlos V in Madrid and have no complaints whatsoever. Firstly the hotel itself is situated in a busy pedestrian area in between Callao on the Gran Via and Puerta del Sol so there are many shops and restaurants available as soon as you step foot...

Comfortable 3 star in ideal central location with minibus airport transfer. Had a triple room as mum with 2 children (9 and 10) for one week over new year. Triple room at the back clean and spacious (compared to Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam city centre 3 star hotels have visited). Quiet (even with new year celebrations) no view, bath and shower,...

For a long weekend and first visit to Madrid this was an ideal location. In the pedestrianised area, close to two Metro stations (Calao and Sol)giving good access to all the major sights/sites either by (cheap, efficient) Public Transport or on foot. Using the Metro we were in our room in about 70 minutes of touching down! The trip involves...

I found the location to be good for a first time stay in Madrid. The main department store was very close, and every hour on the hour, the music and the loud speakers blarred. The staff was friendly but not totally honest. I asked if the room was a non smoking room and they said yes. I smelled stale smoke...

My sister and I stayed at Carlos V when traveling in Madrid - it was such a deal. The staff was friendly and went out of the way to help us. The location was ideal and the rooms clean and comfortable. Much nicer than the four-star hotel we stayed in while in Barcelona!

Good location; very adequate room and amenities. Good buffet breakfast included in our rate. Careful as to room location; request a quiet room or risk noise from the street all night long (pedestrian mall with very early morning truck deliveries). Lots of nearby restaurant options, including a non-smoking vegetarian with solid food. Most Spanish hotels have very firm beds; this...

Spent 3 nights here and found it perfectly adequate. It's not much to look at from the outside, small reception area on street level. Room was typical, nothing special, certainly clean with a nice bathroom with good water pressure. With the windows closed and A/Con it was quiet at night. My husband prefers to sleep with open windows, but that's...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
