Great for what you pay for

I had an 18 hour layover in Madrid, so booked a room at the Exe Coloso so I didn't have to sleep in the airport. The hotel is in the heart of Madrid and near numerous shops and sites. It was very easy to get to the hotel using the Metro (take the 8 line until you get to Nuevos Minesterios then get off and get on the 10 line south and get off at Plaza de Espana). It was about a 15 minute walk from there and there is a huge sign showing the name of the hotel. The price was great for the quality of the room. The room was very modern and clean, although I would not recommend that you opt for the breakfast as you can get a cheaper meal at one of the many restaurants and diners around the hotel. The afternoon reception staff could have been more polite, but we were taken care of very quickly. I would definitely come back if I ever come back.

Amazing Trip!

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 tip: Short walk from hotel

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!

Generally Good

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.

Modest but clean

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.

Central Hotel

The hotel is centrally located, close to Metro (Plaza de Espana), hop on/off bus; shops & restaurants. The staff was very friendly (thank you, Alberto and Juan Carlos). The rooms were big and comfortable. Each bed could accommodate 2 people each (if slim), so 4 people could stay in a room. Our rooms faced the street and it was quiet between 1a - 6:30a; otherwise a little noisy. The windows opened which was nice, but the shades did not pull down so you could see the people across the street in their apts, not to mention the beaming sun light in the am.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are tons of restaurants try them all, best deals are the daily specials which include first & second meals with a drink and dessert. We learned that tips are not expected in restaurants, therefore customer service varies (that explained why some waiters were rude and had to be reminded we were waiting for a menu, waiting for food or to get our check), others were pleasant and very happy to get a tip.
