The Moderno Puerta del Sol is located on a newly pedestrian-ized street, just steps away from the Metro in Plaza Sol. The Opera house and Plaza Mayor are only a five minute walk down the street. The Royal Palace is beyond that. If it's action you're after in Madrid, this is the place to be.

Upstairs is old school class, with brass and red velvet carpet. The 97 rooms are sophisticated with wooden floors and black-leather headboards. Design magazines and flashy city guides are stacked on writing desks.

In the bathrooms, shaving mirrors, a bathroom stool, and toiletry baskets (with combs) are there for an old school treat. There are some hydro-massage bathtubs on offer.

Mind the kids! Hotel Moderno has a special agreement with an agency that organizes groups of youngsters, often times filling up the hotel weeks in advance. But don't let that discourage you from trying to book a room. It didn't discourage the Spanish businessmen we saw arrive at the hotel during our visit, who were on a first-name basis with the receptionists.

About the Moderno 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.
