No surprises

Would recommend Fri, Oct 19, 2012
We got this hotel for our first night in Madrid. We were very pleased with value and cleanliness. Close enough to evrything, only problem was we had to get another hotel as they were filled for the next night, our mistake not theirs.

Bad service, bad room

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 17, 2012
Be aware: 1- The only have 14 parking spaces and they are always full, they will request to go to a public parking to pay over 20 euros / night. 2- Even was autumm and temperature was cool, some hours of the day, I want air conditioning but they disconect the on/off switch of the A/C. 3- Breakfast was very good.

Modest but clean

Would recommend Mon, Mar 26, 2012
Our room was comfortable and clean. The area were the hotel is located is good, the metro is very close. The neighborhood is not fancy, but the police station is just a few houses away from the hotel. It is an old neighborhood. The hotel staff was WONDERFUL! The hotel is a good place is you have a set budget for your trip and do not expect an ultra modern facility. Economic, Clean, comfortable, old , and modest. The room had wood flooring instead of carpet. That was a plus! The metro is just a few steps away. Very close to the Royal Palace and La Plaza Espana.

Dining

Viva la vida! a good vegan buffet restaurant opened until midnight.

If using UK credit card beware. They convert to sterling at your disadvantage without seeking your permission first which can cost you 2% extra on your payment.

Would recommend Thu, May 26, 2011
Hotel had a great location. Staff was very hospitable and they helped us plan our trip thought the major cities of Spain (we were backpacking). Rooms are clean, hot water, comfy bed... Will definitely go back.

Not Bad

Would recommend Fri, May 14, 2010
The hotel was nicely decorated and in a good location. The staff were very helpful and instructed us on the best way to get to the airport. The room was expectedly small and without a good view, but we only needed a place to stay for one night.

Central Location

Location was great. Breakfast room is nice and has fresh food. No internet in room. Very little sound proofing, so lots of noise.

Dining

Great places not very far away.

hotel was fine, breakfast was a rip-off

Would not recommend Thu, Apr 1, 2010
Location was fine, room was clean, double bed turned out to be two singles put together -- not very comfortable for a couple. Staff was very friendly until we got ready to check out and found out that the breakfast buffet, which was not advertised as costing anything, cost 30 euros for my husband and myself -- for a roll and a cup of coffee!!!!! Outrageous!

Amazing Trip!

Would recommend Tue, Aug 4, 2009
Hotel el Coloso is an amazingly good deal. Great hotel, with superior employees (they call each other colleagues). [...] is our favorite at the hotel, although all of the staff is amazing - he will definitely keep you entertained and see that you know all of the best places in the city to go. Didn´t go to the hotel´s restaurant because on a tight budget but looked amazing. On a tiny street next to the police station, but surprisingly very few sirens. Air conditioning keeps the rooms cool. Definitely coming back our next trip to Madrid!!

Entertainment hint

At night, walk to Plaza Espana and get an ice cream or a soda. Locals and tourists enjoy the evening together, with the fountain noise in the background. Additionally, the largest park in the city - I forget what it´s called - is a lovely stroll (but about 2+ miles to get there). Enjoy!
