The most striking feature of Hotel Catalonia Puerta del Sol is the majestic building in which it is housed. It was one of the first properties in the area, built in the late 18th century, which has since been completely refurbished and modernized.
Everything has been restored and maintained as it was originally: the hallway, which is the former access road; the magnificent entrance doors, still showcasing their original ironwork; the grand staircase, featuring its wood steps and balustrade with plaster mouldings and the courtyard, typical in Madrid in those times, where it is said that the local chulapos from the neighbourhood would come to smoke and talk to the women. This hotel blends in perfectly with the Literary Quarter. The rest has been completely renovated to achieve the desired modern and elegant image and the necessary facilities to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay.
