Stayed here June 7th - 15th. Initial reaction was slight dissapointment to smaller than expected room. However the hotel had honoured our request for a quiet inner room so maybe this was the reason for the smaller room. We only heard the monastery bells once...More
We loved this hotel! Great location. Easy walk to the Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, the Puerta del Sol (which was taken over at the time by a messy group of tent people making a political statemnt--a shame). There are all kinds of cafes and...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.
