The hotel is very nice. Clean, updated and surprisingly roomy. The cafe that's attached is perfect for breakfast or evening espresso. We could walk to the Prado, shopping, great restaurants from the hotel. But be aware that the plaza will be crowded and noisy pretty much all the time.

This hotel has reasonably good sized rooms, is modern and clean, and has a supportive, helpful and friendly staff. The location in Madrid is perfect for getting around. The hotel is in the middle of a shopping area and Madrid gathering place. Subway and taxi are also extremely convenient. We loved this hotel and highly recommend it for anyone considering a holiday in Madrid.

As in December 2010, we flew to Spain for Christmas vacations on December 27 from de. After few days in La Coruna, in the northwest part of Spain, we arrived in Madrid for the New Year's Eve and stayed again in Hotel Europa (we stayed from December 28, 2011 to January 3, 2012). This hotel is the best one if you decide to celebrate in Puerta del Sol Square. Most of the rooms are just in front of this place so you and your family or friends can spend the night in the balcony of your room looking the TV (the celebration is transmitted by TVE1, one of the television channel in Spain) and the crowded people in the Square. Really it is very excited! The room, as usual, very clean. The Staff are excellent, specially Raul, Javier and the other personnel who attend the Front Desk.

The hotel has Wifi and two computers in the Lobby, available for customers free of charge. As always be aware that the room rate rises considerably from December 29, 30 and 31. In addition, the security box should be requested and the charge is approximately 2 euros per day.
This hotel is centrally located so you have a lot of shops, restaurants and cafeterias around. The hotel has his own Restaurant-Cafeteria which opens very early in the morning and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and also room service to the customers.

Just in front of the hotel you have the Sol Metro Station, which is very useful for your transfer to the Airport or to the AVE train to Sevilla, Valencia or Barcelona (you can take the Sol Metro to Atocha Station to connect with the AVE train). In addition, you can take the Sol Metro to Chamartin, another Rail Station in Madrid. Definitely, we recommend this hotel, specially for Christmas.

Room Tip: If you want the Puerta del Sol view, you have to request it in your reservation. Be aware that the hotels have limited rooms with this view and are more expensive. The reservation should be made with more than six months in advance.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Europa at the beginning of our European trip, so we asked for and got the same room at the end of our trip. Best features of the hotel were the great bathroom, room size, comfort, price, location and helpful staff. The large corner room had two balconies, both opening to the Plaza Sol – heart of Madrid, and a lively place to be with many choices of shops and restaurants and within walking distance to all the main attractions. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and best quality for the price of any hotel we stayed on our 6 week trip. The hotel was only steps away from the Sol Metro Station, which has excellent connections to the Airport. The Sol station is confusing for a first-time user, but the locals were very helpful. In fact, one lady was so worried that we would find the right train to get us to the airport, that she rode with us on the entire 30 min trip even though she spoke no English and was obviously needing to go in a different direction. Madrid was a lovely city. We saw no pick-pockets and the people were friendly, helpful and fabulous.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room overlooking the Plaza.

What a great hotel in a great location. Clean, friendly staff, great restaurant attached, quiet despite being in the middle of the action. Rooms are not heavily decorated so don't expect an old style European Hotel, but everything is clean, bathrooms are modern, elevators are accessible. We booked four rooms and had a mix of locations... one with a balcony overlooking Puerta Del Sol (great for the party crowd), one overlooking the side streets (good people wathcing) and two on the interior (quiet and relaxing).

Metro and High Speed Rail lines are literally steps away...you are a 10-15 minute walk from every major attraction in Madrid and within steps to unbelievable restaurants, nightclubs, shoping...etc!

Room Tip: Request rooms facing Puerta Del Sol for the most excitement and energy. Request those facing the courtyard for quiet and relaxation
