In happening Huertas, within walking distance of Puerta de Sol, Plaza Mayor, and lots of other popular spots
The Catalonia Plaza Mayor is located on an active street near Puerta de Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hotel is very close to the action without being right on top of it, so there's less street noise at night. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops in Huertas: The area is considered by many to have the best nightlife and culinary scene in the city. It's also close to Puerta de Atocha station, which is the city's hub for high speed trains.
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.
The spacious rooms at the Catalonia Plaza Mayor have a fresh, uncluttered feel, with minimalist furnishings, few adornments, and flat-screen TVs mounted on the walls. Bathrooms are outstanding -- highlights include the huge rain showers and streamlined modern fixtures. The public areas of the hotel are just as sleekly designed: The lobby, cafe, and fitness area (though it's small and a little dark) all have a hip vibe. If you're exploring Madrid on foot for the first time, this hotel -- located in happening Huertas -- is a great place to stay.
