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.

I couldn't fault this hotel - every communication with the staff prior to our arrival was dealt with efficiently and in a friendly manner, and this professionalism was apparent throughout our stay. Our room (a junior suite) and that of our daughter's (superior double) was...More

My wife and I stayed 6 nights in the Hotel Preciados, Madrid, in November, 2018. It's really a neat hotel, very nicely done, very clean, very good maid service, and fantastic location right in the heart of the city.
