Modern Hotel in Central Madrid

We arrived early to Madrid but had contacted them before regarding an early check-in. They had a room when we arrived, but it was a smoking room that smelled quite bad. To the staff's credit, they did location us a non-smoking room that was great. The big negative about our stay at the hotel was my wife had her purse stolen while we were in the hotel restaurant. In the staff's defense, the thieves were quite professional, the staff was extremely helpful with our contacting the police and made efforts looking at their security cameras to identify the culprits.

excellent hotel in Madrid

This hotel is in a great location, has a very nice lobby and cafe with reasonable prices. We walked everywhere from his location including the Prado. Loved hanging out at Mayor. Don't miss the botanical garden when you are there. Highly recommend this place.

Excellent room...

Close to Metro and Plaza Mayor. Large, modern room compared to other European hotel standards at this rate. Staff was business-like but not very friendly. Unless you speak and read Spanish, you'll find this hotels' staff can be difficult to communicate with. We survived, however, and would stay again because of its' location and price. Avoid the cafeteria unless you read Spanish...no English or other language translations! We ordered something and, well, let's just say we were suprised at what we were served!
