Perfect Location!

The hotel was located right a the center of the action in Madrid. Blocks from El Retiro, Cibeles and Neptune. Museums and Goya street. Transportation was perfect when you couldn`t walk to your destination. Bus stop to the Airport was a mere 200 m cost was just 5 euros per person. Good food and excellent cafeterias. great restaurants a few blocks from the hotel

Very convenient location

I was on a business trip in Madrid. The hotel is very well connected through metro with the main train station and airport. It is within walking distance to many administrative buildings. The location was great. It is not a brand new hotel, but it was clean and the attention of the staff was also very good.

Good for the price...

If your not worried about having a luxurious room and won't be spending much time in your hotel anyway, this is the place for you. The rooms are a little on the small side and the beds are somewhat stiff. The hotel is old fashioned but does have Wi-fi and a business center. Staff was nice and helpful. Location was good, about a 20 min walk downtown or a 5 min cab ride. Overall, if your spending a few days days in Madrid, check this hotel out. It won't burn a hole in your pocket.

Madrid under 100

Although with a window that offer close to zero natural light, the room is comfortable. The hotel is very well located (two blocks from subway, line 6 and six blocks from line 2, the one that connects directly to Sol). Internet is not free, you can have access to wifi after a fee close to the one charge in many american hotels. There is an internet place one block away in case you don't need constant access.

Good and Bad

Hotel located comfortably to everything. Madrid Metro system is fantastic; also, very disabled-person equipped: escalator or elevator at every station. Took Metro from airport to hotel. Hotel service people not very friendly, but that seems to be all over Madrid, with couple of exceptions. Had to call for towels and soap, but the room was very clean and the price was right. Had to pay BIG for Internet and then two hours after connection the whole floor's connection went out and had to ask for a refund.

Good price-value full service hotel

Conveniently located close to the subway and a wonderful park makes for a good business hotel. It feels like a hotel built in the 70s and not renovated since, although it must have been a top-notch place back then. Therefore it looks a little "tired", but everything works (including internet), the staff is helpful, the rooms are quiet and clean and the beds are comfortable. I had a room looking onto a tiny "light shaft", which did not make for a nice view but ensured quietness.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Can't remember the name of the place, but there is an excellent "Cerveceria" on the corner of Calle de O'Donnell and Calle de Maiquez, easily recognizable by all the legs of "Jamon Serrano" hanging in the window. Good for a sandwich or a whole meal if you like local food.
