Our second visit to the Catalonia Puerta del Sol and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. We were a little worried that noise from the supporters of Real and Atletico outside on Champions' League Final night would disturb our sleep, but the fact that the hotel is built inside the thick walls of an old building made it blissfully quiet. Some people have complained that the rooms face into an inner courtyard and this makes the rooms dark, but we feel that this makes the hotel an oasis of calm on busy Calle Atocha, especially when the Madrid summer is scorching outside..
Breakfast was even better than on our last stay. This time we had a standard room rather than a superior, which was smaller but still perfectly comfortable - nice beds, plenty of hanging space and pleasant en-suite. Any little problems are swiftly sorted by the hotel staff, who are all very pleasant and efficient.
I think this hotel offers excellent value for a comfortable stay right in the heart of Madrid, within easy walking distance of the Prado, Retiro Park and my favourite Plaza, Santa Ana. Looking forward to our next visit.
