Imagine the lights of Madrid's Gran Vía avenue, the plates of trendy Chueca's popular restaurants, the grandeur of historic Salamanca palaces... If you're an urban creature attracted to the hustle and bustle of the city and love to feel like you're in the center of it all, then head downtown with your suitcases to one of Madrid's best central hotels. When you walk out the door, all of Madrid will be at your fingertips.
Overlooking Vázquez de Mella square, Hotel Room Mate Mario is centrally located amidst restaurants and bars in the trendy Chueca neighborhood and a block from Madrid's main drag, the Gran Vía. The hotel is design oriented, modern looking, and bathed in bright colors. But bring your earplugs.
The Ritz in Madrid is located in the heart of the museum district, set a few feet back from the pleasant and leafy Paseo del Prado but facing Spain's Stock Exchange and the Prado Museum. An historic hotel, it is synonymous with old school glamour and luxury in the Spanish capital and most of the major sights are within walking distance.
Not as expensive as some of the neighboring hotels, the Suite Prado Hotel is still quite central. It's located next to Madrid's cultural Ateneo as well as the Parliament building and is near the Golden Triangle of Art, the Huertas area, and Sol.
