We chose this hotel based solely on TripAdviser comments. Wow, did we make the right choice. It's hard to imagine a better stay had we booked the most expensive 5-star hotel in Madrid. Our room was beautiful with a nice view of the terra cotta roofs and towers of adjacent buidlings. Our room's modern bathroom had a separate shower and bath. The staff was super and conversant in English. The public spaces on each floor in this converted aristocratic mansion are gorgeous. Most important is the location. The Catalonia sits just off Plaza Santa Ana, a small, charming square surrounded by nice restaurants. The hotel is also a 10-minute downhill walk to the "museum triangle" featuring the Museo del Prado housing one of the most magnificent art collections in the world. The hotel serves a great breakfast, but it's worth noting that there is a wonderful little "Cuban" restaurant just opposite the hotel that is worth checking out for a wonderful and economical "desayuno."
One suggestion to the hotel management. The best ways to get to the airport and train station are common travelers' concerns. A handout at the front desk would be helpful. We were dismayed to learn at the last minute that cab fare on Sundays included a significant surcharge.
