Sometimes you're just not in the mood to take chances ... And that's OK. When this happens, go ahead and jump on the chain hotel train. All aboard! Next stop, the Hotel Best Western Carlos V.
This centrally situated, reliable hotel is a dream come true for risk-averse travelers: You can get shuttle service to and from the airport, and it's located in a popular shopping area, just off the pedestrian-only Preciados. Sixty-seven quality rooms are packed with three-star amenities, and first-rate service is the norm. In fact, everything about the Carlos V is right on track, predictably pleasant, and professional.
The lobby, first floor lounge, and breakfast area are decorated ala Classical mode, with rich royal colors, antique-style furniture, chandeliers, and hardwood floors. There's even a knight's shining armor!
Thankfully, this style is toned down a bit in the rooms, which have wall-to-wall carpeting and all the standard amenities. The furnishings and fabrics (in yellows and blues) are well coordinated and new. And the bathrooms are large by European standards, with huge mirrors, tubs, and brand new tiles.
About half of the Carlos V's rooms have balconies that face the street. Though the rooms are soundproofed, you might prefer a room on the quiet courtyard.

About the Best Western Hotel Carlos V neighborhood
The Puerta del Sol is the geographic and historic center of old Madrid, within walking distance of most of central Madrid's tourist offerings. Calle Mayor, a major commercial and business street, runs to the west of Puerta del Sol, and to the south are tiny, dense streets packed with tapas bars, restaurants and cafés. Many of Madrid's best hotels are on the Puerta del Sol, while pensions can be found along the side streets.
