As many other travelers have mentioned, the location is really wonderful. You can not beat the location and the value. The room was pretty small. The bathroom was enormous. The breakfast was very satisfactory. The service was mixed. The men at the desk were either...More
I found Hotel II Castillas and chose it because of Trip Advisor - what a great find! The location was excellent and the price couldn't be beat. There are pleanty of sights within walking distance - in fact, I took the Metro to and from...More
I booked to stay in this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Everyone mentioned how good the location is, and it really is superb. Calle de la Abada is a quiet side street off Gran Via, and you literally are in the middle...More
We went to Madrid for a weekend and stay at this hotel.
Its location is awesome!! We didn't use the Metro at all and just walked everywhere we want to. (Sol, Mayore, Retiro gardens, the palace etc.)
The double glazed windows are doing the work,...More
Incredibly central _and_ extremely quiet. Only breakfasts are a bit cramped, and if you're not doublequick there's a chance the waitress will take your food away while you're fetching something you'd forgotten! But otherwise this is an excellent choice, really great value for money!
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.

Catch the metro to Nuevo Ministerios where you will need to change trains The nearest stop is Callao which is just off Gran Via a five minute walk to the hotel. There is also a metro at Puerto del Sol which is also only five to ten minute walk from hotel. Taxis may get stuck in traffic so can be more expensive 30 to 40 euro. Exit Callao station onto Gran Via , take 2nd or 3rd turning right hotel is on the left, look up for hotel name. To try traditional tapas and a great evening try adventurous appetites tour, I can highly recommend it for a great night out.
