Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

Room clean and spacious, with good storage, comfortable bed and TV that worked. Staff helpful and friendly. Good buffet spread for breakfast. Location ideal for Madrid visit, both for eateries and for travel, as Metro just round the corner.

I travelled to Madrid on business and decided to stay in the hotel due to good location. Room was a disappointment, the bathroom even more. Breakfast (charged 12 EUR) is served rather late i.e. at 7.30 a.m.

Cason del Tormes' great feature is its location - 5 minutes walking from the Royal Palace and also 5 from the Plaza Espana (including metro). Also, it is located on a very quiet street, which helps a lot, especially in Madrid
Staff is very polite...More
This hotel is unfortunately totally overpriced. We stayed over one night and that was enough. Corridors were dirty so you didn't feel very welcome. Our room was really small, toilet rinsig didn't work, the tiles were out of the floor and the bed was like...More
