pleasant, clean, simple rooms. Unfortunately, an older construction with relatively poor soundproofing - and Spaniards stay up late! (but they don't get up very early so there are opportunities for revenge :) ) Located about 5 minutes from 2
Metro stations. Right across the street from the high retaining wall around the Gardens of the Royal Palace. A nice walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor with a lot of interesting sights along the way.
I travel to Madrid just about every year and my experience at Principe Pio was really good. The room was comfortable and very clean. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, just a couple of blocks from the metro
station, across the street from the Royal Palace, and a walking distance from the Gran Vía. I would definitely stay there again!
