Editorial review:

Catalonia Plaza Mayor, located in an ideal location just across from the Plaza Mayor, has a hip décor combined with original elements of this 150-year old building. With helpful staff, the rooms are nice, some in light colors and wrought iron furniture. The attic rooms have dark wood and designer lamps, with nice little terraces with lovely rooftop views of central Madrid.

        • Family with children

          We were a family with two older kids booked a double room, through Booked.net we requested an extra bed and received a confirmation for our request but when we arrived to hotel they mentioned that there's no request as such and the room can't take an extra bed, so Rosa (the Receptionist) suggested we upgrade our room to a suite for an extra €60 a night, luckily there was an available one. Rosa saved us though my boys wished to have their TV as the connection was ready but no Tv fixed and our friends who were with us took the other suite which had 2 TVs and their suite was much bigger and paid exactly like us, plus the suite was offering breakfast for only 2 people.

          Though the staff were not speaking Good English but they were friendly and very helpful unlike other Spanish who think it's your problem you can't speak Spanish.

          Nice room. Quiet hotel. Very gooв location.

          Air conditioner is tricky to operate. During the night you have to switch it on and off as the cold air flows directly to your bed and you can't regulate the temperature (room number 212). Sometimes you can feel some smells from the kitchen.

          Clean, cool with good curtains/ blinds to keep it dark. Functional and pleasant, given the location I thought it was good value for money and the shower was excellent.

          Nothing special in decor etc which meant we had no desire to eat or drink there - not a complaint just an observation

          Hotel was fabulous, room was big and very clean, modern design and the bathroom was very modern style with a massive shower. The hotel suited us perfectly because it was close to Plaza Santa Ana where there are fantastic tapas and a great atmosphere at night. We managed to walk everywhere from the Egyptian temple to the Retiro Park and everywhere in between in 3 days. The hotel staff were excellent, giving us guidance when we arrived on where to go and what to see, Javier was brilliant - thank you! We will definately come back again and to this hotel. Breakfast was also on offer at 10 euros pp and was fabulous, fresh fruit, a fresh fruit salad, all the meats, cheese, breads, pastries, cereals, hot food, variety of eggs, fresh orange juice!!! Really was worth it and a good start to our busy days!

          New modern hotel, good-sized rooms (not always a given in Spain) with fantastic bathrooms. Fairly good location right on calle Atocha, a block or so from Huertas/Plaza Santa Ana, & the interior room was very quiet (overlooking the dining courtyard). There is a small gym with cardio equipment & a jacuzzi.

          For what bills itself as a four-star hotel, there really should be more & better quality toiletries.
