"Main attractions are in the city centre, so you might choose to stay near Puerta del Sol, the livest square of Madrid."
"I'd recommend Placa Santa Anna, it's a lovely are within walking distance of everywhere and there is a few really nice bars and places to eat along the square."
"If you like shopping you can stay at Salamanca quarter. If you want more autentic places try La Latina neighborhood or Chueca district."
Hotel Villa Magna: "If you want nice modern rooms, a pretty good location, and a feeling that you are at the best hotel in town, then stay here. The Villa Magna is a little farther away from the main tourist locations, but it is right next to the best shopping streets in the city and the nicest neighborhood."
Grand Melia Fenix: "I loved this hotel. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend this to anyone looking for a luxurious hotel in Madrid. The location is really great - right near the Metro, Prado and Park, and about a 10-15 minute walk to all other main attractions."
Hotel Orfila: "The Orfila is ideally located for access to central Madrid yet it is on a very quiet street. I highly recommend this hotel, is the place you should stay when you are in Madrid."

Hotel Preciados: "This hotel is literally in the center of everything. Within walking distance of major sites, metro stations, parks, shopping and more. We found the hotel a good value convenient in central Madrid."
Catalonia Las Cortes: "Gorgeous hotel, excellent staff, perfect location in the middle of everything yet on a quiet street, decent price for Madrid, can't say enough good things about it. We will not stay anywhere else in Madrid!"
Hotel Liabeny: "On a quiet side street between the Gran Via and Plaza del Sol, the hotel manages to be in the center of things but still tranquil. An early morning walk to the Prado, or the Royal Palace, is reasonable, very pleasant and shows just how close you are to many of the places you'd want to see."
Intur Palacio San Martin: "Location is excellent for all sights and we only used the Metro to get out for the bull fight. We slept well there and felt comfortable walking in the surrounding area. I would stay there again while in Madrid!"
The Westin Palace Madrid: "It is one of the best hotels in Madrid location-wise. A quick walk to all the museums, shopping, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, tapas restaurants etc. In fact, it was so well located we didn't take the metro/taxi once!"
Sercotel Suites Viena: "If you are looking for a place that is well located, reasonably priced, spotless clean, quiet and air conditioned, this is the place. I will definately be staying here again when I go back to Madrid."

Hotel Room Mate Alicia: "The Plaza de Santa Ana area can be very pricey but Room Mate Alicia was a pleaseant surprise in the area. It is a boutique hotel in almost every way, minimal lobby, no food/room service but attached to a cafe that offers breakfast to hotel guests only, and small modern rooms."
