Catalonia Puerta del Sol (formerly Catalonia Moratín) has outstanding personality and is located in the centre of Madrid, a few metres from Puerta del Sol. Built around an interior courtyard, the rooms are furnished with all the complements and services required for our clients’ satisfaction. Its unbeatable situation makes the hotel a safe bet for enjoying the wide range of cultural and commercial options on offer in the city. It also has a restaurant, foyer bar and hall.
The building dates from the 18th century and the hotel is set around an interior courtyard that is typical of the period. The entire hotel is very bright and the refurbished building conserves the original entrance and main staircase.
The construction is one of the first that was to be built in the area. It is listed as a historical building of the town of Madrid and has been designated as one of the City’s Artistic Heritage sites. During the refurbishment work, particular importance was placed on the entrance, the former entrance hall that was originally built to enable the entrance of horse-drawn carriages and whose original structure has been conserved.
The refurbishment work on the main entrance was the most complicated part. The floor comprises stones weighing 200 kg each and had to be given special treatment owing to the complications. The interest in the entrance lies in the 2 doors of a height of 3.5 m, which conserve the original hinges and fittings. The main staircase is unique in the area and one of great beauty: the steps and wooden banisters with plasterwork mouldings have been fully recovered. Inside the hotel, the typical courtyard of the period has been conserved and, according to the local residents, it was originally used as a meeting place for the local chulapos to get together, smoke cigarettes and speak with the women.
The hotel is located in the Letras quarter in the heart of the traditional part of Madrid. In recent years, the streets have been turned into the city’s fashionable area. The district is worthy of special mention since it is particularly busy and reflects the spirit of this bohemian quarter. Small restaurants, modest art galleries and enjoyable bars have chosen these streets of Madrid as their point of reference.
