An exquisite hotel with ambiance and con

Very conveniently located in an elegant neighborhood. Rooms very spacious, spotless housekeeping, and beds very comfortable. Superb insulation, no street noise. Elegant restaurant on 1st floor. Easy access to public transportation for sightseeing. Great breakfast, extremely friendly staff. Appeared this hotel catered to conferences, not aware of amenities for exercising or children. Only service missing was a porter to help with luggage into the room. Had to carry luggage up 8 stairs before reaching the extremely tiny elevator. Great place to stay. The best 4 Star hotel we stayed in during our 3 week vacation to Europe!

Unbeatable location for the price

We like it very much is a nice hotel with very good service and well located near the finest shopping area in Madrid, there´s a metro station two blocks away so you can move easily to downtown or the prime museums without using taxi. They serve a complete buffet cold breakfast with a good variety of fruits, cereals, breads and european deli.

I would like to explain cleanliness:

I would like to explain cleanliness: People smoke in the hotel restaurant area and the smell is everywhere! Other than that the place was need and orderly. The level of which the people speak English is challenging. They all believe they speak English and understand English.... however, most comprehend very little beyond city directions.

Great location!

I chose to stay here because of the hotel's location to shops and museums, as well as its accesibilty to Barajas Airport, which is twenty minutes away. My previous stay here was in July, 2005. The hotel is well above its three star standing. The room was very tastefully done, clean, comfortable. I ordered room service for dinner and it was prompt, hot and quite good. I walked easily to Plaza de Colon and its visitor center for a map of the city. The service was impeccable, friendly and super efficient. It is my choice for my stays in Madrid.

no se preocuparon del aire

increíble,,,que un hotel como el Velazquez, tan agradable y tan bien ubicado, pueda estar dos días reclamando que el aire acondicionado del cuarto no servia y no se preocuparan, de reparralo, cambiar de habitacion o por lo menos pedir disculpas,,, ,mas aun cuando estamos a 36 grados de calor.

Bueno pero con un fallo

El Hotel muy bueno, pero a pesar de haber elegido la oferta de desayuno incluido, me dijeron que no estaba incluido por ser una reserva que se podia cancelar. Un detalle muy feo por su parte.
