Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Fashionable location in the Salamanca neighborhood
  • Spacious, modern rooms with wood floors, flat-screen TVs, and minibars
  • Big bathrooms with modern fixtures, plush robes, and detachable showerheads
  • Appealing suites offer cozy living space and even bigger bathrooms
  • Comfortable lobby bar and affordable food served at Centro restaurant
  • Morning breakfast buffet with good variety
  • Free Wi-Fi and public computer for guest use

Cons

  • Slim amenities (no fitness center or spa)
  • King beds are two twin beds pushed together (typical in Madrid)
  • No alarm clocks in rooms
  • Daily fee to use in-room safes

Bottom Line

The Catalonia Goya Hotel is a surprisingly stylish value option in the Salamanca neighborhood. Rooms are modern and spacious (especially for the affordable price) with flat-screen TVs, nice lighting, wood floors, and dark wood furniture. Bathrooms are much larger and more contemporary than guests might expect for this price point. Upgrading to a suite gets not only extra living space, but also an even bigger bathroom with a rainforest showerhead. This hotel also has a comfortable lobby bar and Centro restaurant -- home to a morning breakfast buffet -- provides affordable meals. With free Wi-Fi and a fashionable location, this hotel is a good, affordable pick.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a vibrant shopping street in ritzy Salmanaca, close to a Metro station

The Catalonia Goya Hotel is on a wide, tree-lined street in the Salamanca district, arguably the most fashionable area of the city. It boasts top-notch boutiques, delicious restaurants, and some beautiful mansions. It is also home to traditional markets as well as the U.S. embassy and a small business district.

The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.
