Spacious, well decorated and pleasant,

Spacious, well decorated and pleasant, if rather dark rooms, including large bathroom with bath -- excellent value for money. Good location in easy walking distance from old town and tapas district.

Great base for city break

The hotel was located only 5-10 minute walk from plaza mayor, San Miguel market and 10-15 minutes fr puerta del sol. Lots of restaurants shops and bars were in walking distance. The rooms were very clean and the bed sheets tidied for us when we returned to the hotel at night the bathroom was spotless. The room was a perfect size for 2 people. The only downside was that we had two single beds pushed together but would have preferred a double bed. The staff are great and they let you leave your luggage in a secure room on your last day if check out is before your flight and you still have a few hours to go into the city.

lovely city break

Hotel was lovely, very central, only two minutes walk to the metro ,which took us everywhere. we got a ticket for 25€ which lasted us the five days. Only tried the breakast in the hotel on the last day which was lovely, 10€ for a buffet which kept us going up until dinner. very clean ,modern hotel, i could not fault the room, only that the walls very thin and you could hear everything in the room beside, however that wasnt a big problem. the chinese buffet next door is discusting. lovely trip overall, my boyfriend is already dying to go back.

Not bad

The room was pretty clean but the shower was weird. It only had a cover for half the tub so the water went everywhere. Had to walk 10-15 minutes to find some good cheap places to eat. The AC was really good. Overall, a very pleasant stay. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay, Ganivet is a good choice.

Bathroom smelled horrible

Hotel location is okay and easy walk to Plaza Mayor, but hotel is average in every way. My bathroom smelled horrible and the staff made no effort to be any nicer than they needed to be to check me into my room. If you want average, this is your hotel.

Hotel is near Toledo Metro, but be sure to walk up hill and that can be a pain with a lot of luggage. Latina is further but an easier walk IMO.

Good location, but...,

We enjoyed the location of this hotel, just off the Metro line and the folks at the hotel were very pleasant. But the beds were awful. Now, I actually prefer a firm mattress, but these beds were as hard as board. The walls are awful thin as well. Luckily the place wasn't that full but every time some one came down the hall we could hear them talking etc. The room was small but very clean. If you can get pass the awful beds, good value for the money.

Some other reviews I've read indicate that the hotel is between the La Latina and the Puerta Toledo Metro stop, which "is" true, but it is much closer to the latter rather than the former.
