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.

Map of Catalonia Goya

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.
