Downtown Hotel


I will be traveling to Madrid in a month and am trying to locate a downtown hotel room. Since I will be traveling alone, I would like to in a safe area, but close to the tourist attractions. I have heard that the Plaza de Retiro is a great area but when I research, so many options come up. I could really use some help in narrowing down options. I would like to visit the "golden triangle" area and be located near the Red Madrid City Tour line and the nice shopping area. Please help me!!

Many people book hotels at Plaza Santa Ana or the Gran Via, close to sights.

Try Hotel Catalonia Las Cortes very near Plaza Santa Ana. Half way between the Prado and Plaza Mayor.
