Overall good, the devil's in the detail

Would recommend Mon, Sep 3, 2012
not amazing, good location, good room, but no disco tickets, no breakfast info which was paid for. Bed's were terribly uncomfortable and only 1 English channel on tv, annoying.

Nightlife hint

If gay clubbing aim for the area called Chueca (there's a metro there also) as we spent a full evening googling for places, and it turned out alot had closed but if you get the Metro to Cheuca you'll walk onto the "gay square" which was really nice and chilled...7 days a week places are open til 2am...excellent :)

Good location!!

Would recommend Mon, Mar 8, 2010
Place to stay in a low budget plan. For the price I paid it was quite good. The first day I had Wi-Fi internet, but the rest of my stay I didn't. I was told I didn't have connection because I have a Mac, but that's insane because I DID HAVE INTERNET ACCESS the first day. So, do not expect to have Wi-Fi anyway. The computers they have are old and slow. Repeat yourself: "for the price it's not bad". The building is old, which I loved. The room was clean and quite and even though I have the bathroom for myself, the shower needs to be fixed. They have a couple of cameras at the doors, which gave me peaceful dreams at night. :)

Nightlife hint

Do not drink too much. Do not accept drinks from strangers and DO NOT go to stranger's homes [*]. Madrid, as in any big city can be a dangerous place to be, and more if you are a tourist.

Best central location

Would recommend Fri, Aug 7, 2009
I really like the centrality and the secururity of the hotel. It really has all the commodities that a frugal traveler needs. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Perhaps it could be a little cheaper, but once again, the location makes up for everything that it may lack. The hotel is so central that I did not have to use public transportation. I could go walking to the best museums, shopping, nightlife, etc in central Madrid.

Entertainment hint

You can walk to Palacio Real, El Prado, Museo Reina Sofia, Chueca, etc.
