Sleeping in the historic centre of Madrid, in a baroque building in the most iconic square in the city. It’s an experience only possible at the Pestana Plaza Mayor, an exclusive hotel of the Pestana Collection brand that combines the baroque architecture of the 17th Century with a sophisticated decor and the amenities of the 21st century. Madrid is a city with a life of its own, where there is movement, noise and people. But if you want to relax for a moment, all you need to do is close the windows. The hotel is your refuge whenever you want, simultaneously at the centre of everything is the centre of tranquillity. With its spectacular Spa, an inner patio lit with natural light, its own library, a Rooftop bar with seasonal pool with views over the most genuine neighbourhood in the city, a terrace right on Plaza Mayor and rooms that prime for supreme comfort, this is the place to stay in the centre of Madrid. The Pestana Plaza Mayor Madrid is a unique and unrivalled luxury hotel, located a stone’s throw away from the main monuments and tourist attractions, such as Puerta del Sol square, the Royal Palace, Madrid Cathedral, Gran Vía, Plaza del Callao square, the Temple of Debod, or the iconic El Rastro flea market. The Paseo del Arte, where you’ll find the main museums such as the Prado, Reina Sofía, and Thyssen, is only a 20-minute walk away.

Perfect location, you can´t be more central in Madrid. A room towards Plaza Mayor is highly recommended. Roof top pool is amazing, indoor pool is marvelous. Service and staff are really great, and having dinner in the hotel restaurant at least once during your stay is a must.

We booked the hotel for a 6 night stay. The location is incredible and walking distance to nearly all the Madrid top attractions and of course, right on the Plaza Major square, which is stunning. The Hotel was fantastic. The staff could not be more helpful, and the welcome was wonderful, all the staff were warm and welcoming and great ambassadors for the hotel and Madrid. The room was also fantastic. The bed was probably the most comfortable I have slept on in years and the bedding also was lovely. The room was large (Superior Room) and well put together, the bathroom is the normal ‘open’ type to the room which most hotels now use but the shower and WC are behind obscure glass walls which was fine. People complain about he Nespresso capsules and two day’s we did have to ask for them as they were not replenished but they very quickly bought them to the room. The rooftop pool is lovely with the seating area and the Spa is also fab. The staff again are wonderful. I hope they keep the booking system in place (covid measure) as the facilities are small and its useful to ensure all guests get fair access and comfortable access, particularly the gym… they are all amazing facilities however. The breakfast is also superb, and I think great value. Spanish hotels are not normally good at breakfast, but here is an exception! Really superb. Looking forward to returning… I really thought the hotel was super and hard to find fault!

Very well located in the very center of Madrid (Plaza Mayor), this hotel is settled in a historic building but renovated with a sense of modern practicality. Everything exhales good taste, from the general decoration, the rooms and the spaces for amenities. Even with COVID restrictions, the restaurant and spa are a little jewel to enjoy. Pleasantly surprised, it became my favorite hotel in Madrid.

The Hotel is in a good location to move walking to the main points of the city. Unfortunately the reception is not consistent with the service they want to offer and the quality they want to have. Breakfast is ok, the eggs are ready and if they are cold, they are reheated, the rough way of responding of the young woman in the restaurant is quite clear on this, she is always in a hurry. The rooms are smaller than what can be seen in the photos as well as the shower, very small. The air conditioning does not work very well the room in the evenings was very hot. They must work on their Customer Service .... we will not return.
