Thyssen museum is in a class of it's own. The unique chronological ordering of art makes innovators stand out amongst there peers. Oh yeah Reina Sofia and Pardo is nothing to sneeze at either. Amazing collection of art in this city!

Senator Gran Vía 21 Hotel Very good 8.2 the staff was very kind. The location is great. it was my second time in this hotel.
Preciados Wonderful 9 I like the central location of the hotel, you can enjoy a very good selection of breakfast (I almost tasted all and they are all excellent!), go for a stroll in the city, lunch, then go back to the hotel easily for a siesta. We were at the 4th floor at the back so it was quiet enough. For our last evening, we booked at the restaurant in the Hotel and it is true they have the Best Paella around! The service was also excellent!
Silken Puerta America Very good 8.2 The rooms were interesting,different, clean and worth the experience.
Wellington Madrid Excellent 8.7 Staff all very efficient and nothing was too much trouble.
Hotel Regina Excellent 8.6 Very close to the centre, attractions, restaurants etc.Staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely Would go again if I ever visit madrid. Recommended to all who read this review.
Ayre Gran Hotel Colón Very good 8.3 Perfection from A-Z, Gran Ayre Hotel Colon exceeded my high expectations. Situated in a very secured and calm neighbourhood, the staff (especially the young guy at the reception!) greeted us with warm welcome. I will 100% return to this place that feels just like home.
Emperador Very good 8.2 My friends and I came here for a hen do in July and it was fabulous. Lush hotel, the rooftop bar/pool were great, the staff were so friendly and accommodating. The location is very central - right in the heart of everything you'd want to do/eat/see in Madrid. Would definitely stay here again.

Vincci Vía - 66 Very good 8.3 The best part Was the staff And level of cleanliness
Regente Hotel Good 7.6 Good Location.. Nice attitude...
Room Mate Oscar Very good 8.5 Perfect location. Glad to reccommend to others
Catalonia Atocha Excellent 8.7 I arrived early in the morning with the night train from Barcelona. I asked the lady on the reception to drop my luggage there. Instead they answered me there is a free room, so if I want I can check-in, which was very nice. The staff was friendly all the time. The hotel itself is very stylish, marble floors, minimalistic design, has very nice decking terrace on the roof with view to the city. It is situated on 100-200 meters from Anton Martin metro station, and on 5-10 mins walking from the ideal center. Behind the hotel is area of tiny streets full with small restaurants that makes the atmosphere very romantic.

    The Spanish Soul of Art and Entertainment

    The modern Madrid is one of the greenest cities in Europe and the most popular destination in Spain. Whether you want to experience its legendary nightlife or a flamenco show, this is the place to be.

    The renowned Prado Museum holds one of the world’s finest art collections with iconic paintings by El Greco, Velázquez and Goya. For a more modern touch, the Museo Reina Sofia houses works by Picasso and Dali.

    Start your evening at Puerta del Sol, one of the city’s busiest spots. Make some room in your stomach for great tapas and sangria in La Latina district, south of the city’s most famous plaza, Plaza Mayor.

    Real Madrid plays at Santiago Bernabeu and Atlético Madrid competes at Vicente Calderón Stadium, two opportunities that no sports fan will want to miss. The popular Salamanca district is a great place to look for boutique gifts and unique shops.

    Thanks to great public transportation system, getting to the city center from Madrid Barajas International Airport is very easy. Whether you’re looking for luxury hotels, budget hostels or comfy apartments, has a perfect place to stay for your Madrid holiday.

    Hotels that guests love in Madrid

    • Everything. There was nothing to dislike about this hotel. Location was great for all the sights and close to Sol Square. Large room, great facilities. This was our last stay-over on a 22 night tour off northern Spain including staying at 6 hotels, in terms of value for money (given that we were in Madrid) this had to be the best.

    • We were traveling in Spain and Portugal for three weeks. We stayed in six different hotels during that time. This was the largest, best room that we had. The bathroom had two sinks, was large & very modern. Very close to the airport with shuttle service. All-in-all a great place. Good restaurant, excellent professional staff.

    • The free shuttle showed up just as we turned in the rental, taxi would have cost 30euro. The hotel was ultra modern, 8min. from the airport,would have enjoyed a longer stay.We stayed 22 places all over Spain and Portugal,Axor was one of the best.

    • The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I am traveling throughout Spain and coming back to Madrid two more times. The hotel has been kind enough to store the extra luggage I don't need to carry around. Metro is right outside the door. The best grilled vegetable dish I have ever had was made in the restaurant next to the hotel.

    • great value for the money. Close proximity to get back to the airport. staff very helpful and food there was surprisingly great and an excellent value. quiet hotel. didnt eat the breakfast but it looked best of all we had had/seen in spain
