Hotel Catalonia Plaza Mayor – Review

This elegant hotel is located in the heart of Madrid, 10 minutes from the Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums, and features a full gym and hot tub.


The rooms are spacious, sleek, and modern, with minimalist decoration. All rooms are equipped with free WIFI, flat-screen TV, and a private bathroom with rain showers and modern fixtures.


The Catalonia Plaza Mayor serves a buffet-style breakfast every morning. The hotel also has a bar where guests can enjoy a drink and some tapas. Additionally, every day from 17:00 to 20:00 complimentary tea, drinks, and aperitifs are served.


The hotel is just 200 m from the popular Santa Ana square in the Huertas district, known for its excellent bars and tapas. The Antón Martín metro station is 300 meters away, and the Atocha train station is 1km away. Retiro Park is 15 minutes away on foot. This is the same distance to get to the Prado Museum or the Thyssen-Bornemiza, while the Reina Sofia art gallery is at no more than 5 minutes walk. The location of this hotel is perfect to enjoy Madrid´s top highlights on foot.

Overall review

The Catalonia Plaza Mayor hotel is a good option for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel is perfect if you plan to use the high-speed train to travel to Barcelona or Seville.

The hotel offers all you can expect from a high-quality 4-star hotel. We especially like the size of the rooms and the variety of choices for breakfast.

The hotel is also perfect for art lovers since it is located very close to the most important art galleries in Madrid.

Overall good value for money and a good choice unless you expect lots of charm or a hotel with lots of local character.
