In a great location in central Madrid
Hotel Liabeny's location is pretty central, being less than a 10-minute walk from Plaza de Santa Ana. The square, lined with restaurants and tapas bars, is one of the most popular places in Madrid. It's a hot spot Thursday through Sunday as young Madrileños flock here to sit in one of the terraces or go bar hopping. The hotel is also just a few blocks from Puerta del Sol and within walking distance of Plaza Mayor, Madrid's main square. Guests can easily explore Madrid on foot, including the historic neighborhood of the Austrias (with beautiful cobblestone streets and 17th-century architecture) and Gran Via, one of the two major thoroughfares in Madrid and an important shopping hub. The subway, train, and buses are just a few blocks away.
Hotel Liabeny is an aging upper-middle-range hotel with 220 rooms in central Madrid. The highlight is definitely its location, within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, and numerous sights. Simple rooms offer a mix of modern updates (small flat-screen TVs, minibars, comfy beds) with a slightly dated feel (bedspreads and curtains are thin). Though the marble bathrooms look slightly dated due to poor color choices, they are actually quite modern and clean. Hotel features include the fitness center -- complete with cardio machines, free weights, and a sauna -- and free Wi-Fi.
