Wanted to like this hotel...

I stayed for 4 nights at the Ayre Gran Colon early July. The hotel is rather large and split between two buildings (although they are connected). I unfortunately had gone to the wrong building and while I was able to check in, I was left to lug my luggage myself around to the other side. My bedroom walls badly needed a paint/wash. The wall was quite heavily marked. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been vaccumed (I was able to tell the previous guest had long, blonde, curly hair). The throw and cushions on the bed also looked like they needed a rinse in the washing machine. At breakfast the next morning I was seated at a table with a coffee stained table cloth, with my cutlery placed on top of hair. The receptionists were not warm and welcoming at this hotel. There was no warmth, friendliness or any sense of welcoming to any of the team. I am not used to walking past a reception in a hotel and being stared at, or not even acknowledged. The service in the cafe, bar was no better. Staff were hard to find to take a drinks order, pay your bill... I was also charged for breakfast even though I am sure my booking had breakfast included (I had deleted the email so could not prove this). Overall I was very disappointed. The hotel was revamped a few years ago - but it appears they have not bothered to maintain it. All you want in a hotel is for it to be clean and comfortable. The Ayre Grand Colon is neither. I would not recommend it and will not stay there again.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

I have two!! Not so much insider tips but things you should do in Madrid... 1) Círculo de Bellas Artes - has a roof top bar that is quite cool. Have a Heineken shandy and lay back and enjoy the sun and the view 2) Bike ride along the Manzanares river. You can hire a bike from Rio bikes (I think its called) and have a lovely cycle down the river for €4 an hour rental.

Excellent City Break Location

Myself, my 18 year old daughter and my mother stayed at Gran Colon for three nights. The hotel is beautiful, very modern with lovely garden area to sit and relax with a beer! Although outside of the city centre there were excellent local bus routes within 2 minutes walking distance of the hotel. It took just 15 minutes into the city, operating every 10 minutes and just EUR1.50 per person. The hotel bar and restaurant service was excellent, breakfast was exemplary with a huge choice and great value, set us up for the day's sightseeing. Staff very helpful with maps and information on tours. Great weekend had by all - no complaints!!!!

Wonderful family getaway

The entire stay was good and comfortable. The location of the hotel is a little away from the city however is manageable to travel around. The supermarket is 5 blocks away and a small cafe is across the street from the supermarket. Need to plan out ahead of time with bus route and metro. The metro will take you to the airport with one transfer. The bus number 20 stops two streets down on your left will take you to the center of the city. Enjoy your stay in Madrid it is nice city with a lot of options of food and drink.

It's very clean and comfort. May not be in the most popular area but public transportation accessible and easy to get to everywhere. Very quiet to get a good night sleep for the busy next day.

AMAZING.

This hotel is by-far one of the nicest hotels that I've stayed in while traveling. The rooms are immaculate and the one we had was very large (on the top floor, with a beautiful view of madrid and a balcony). The staff were incredibly helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay better. For example, a towel rack in the bathroom broke and when we called the front desk they said not to worry and it would be fixed before we returned from dinner. As promised, it was, no questions asked. The hotel is very close to a metro stop, which is nice for getting into the city. The bed was very comfortable and clean. While we didn't eat there, the hotel restaurant had a menu that looked very good and relatively (as far as hotel prices go) inexpensive. A nice touch on top of their service is a welcoming chocolate truffle and chocolate strawberries plate when you first check-in to the room. Honestly, I can't think of a downside or bad thing to say about this hotel. We booked early, too, which definitely kept the room price down (as I could imagine it might get a little pricey).
