We stayed one night at Eurostars Plaza Mayor during a stopover in Madrid. The hotel is very centrally located in a one-way street close to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The latter is only around a 5 minute walk away. Walking to Callao takes around 20 minutes. The hotel is brand new and housed in a traditional building although only the façade is left to testify of this. Inside the old building has been totally gutted and everything has been renovated. The result is pleasingly contemporary and very agreeable to the eye. After passing through the reception area you walk through the lobby and bar area all of which are tastefully decorated. The lifts are at the back of the bar. We got a room overlooking an inner court. If you want sweeping views then you will most likely be disappointed in this hotel but then this probably goes for most of the hotels in central Madrid. The room was very quiet and pleasant albeit on the smallish side. This was however offset by a very nice ample bathroom with excellent rain shower. All expected amenities were available. A partially stocked mini-bar was available as well (no alcohol). The beds were extremely comfortable and so was the bed linen. The same went for the bath linen. The windows were large affording plenty of natural light. They can however only be set ajar. Wifi was available at no cost and functioned well. Only minor incident on check out: no warm water which made it impossible to take a full normal shower. I found this rather annoying as a bed and a (functioning) bathroom are after all the minimum expectations in a hotel. The hotel compensated in giving us the consumptions from the mini-bar for free. I found this rather avariciously stingy as a compensation. A ten percent discount on the bill would have been a nicer gesture. Would I stay in this hotel again ? Yes probably on the assumption that the warm water incident is not a recurring issue in this hotel. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, contemporary hotel at walking distance from most tourist sites and you don’t expect big rooms and impressive views then this might be a good option.
