If you are yearning for English fare, there is a great Irish Pub a short walk from the hotel called Moore's, near the Plaza Mayor, they make a mean burger and wonderful chips...

Good description of the Hotel

The photo of the hotel front does not do it justice. It is right smack dab in the middle of everything in Madrid. We walked to literally half of the sites we wanted to visit. It's near some great food and shops. One of the best locations in this city that I could think of. I would and probably WILL stay here again.

Great hotel!

The hotel was lovely. The rooms were spacious and sunny and overlook a small square. The location couldn't have been better. It was a block from Grand Via, a 15 minute walk from the Prado and other museums and a 20 minute walk from the Atocha Train station. Although breakfast was not included in the price, we did purchase the great breakfast buffet. The staff was courteous, the room was clean and well appointed. There is a wide range of dining options within a 1-2 block area from small tapas bars, casual sidewalk cafes to grander dining options. I would stay there again when I return to Madrid.

Check out the Tapas bars on the side streets to the right and left of the hotel. Look for one that has a lot of Customers. In most cases, you will be offered a small tapas with each drink ordered.

One of the best hotels

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel during the last night of our recent Europe trip, during which we had stayed at altogether 5 hotels in 4 cities. We rank this hotel the best in terms of everything: price, service, hotel facilities, the location, and etc. We will definitely recommend it to our friends. And if we will return to Madrid for another visit, we will surely stay at this hotel.

The Place to Stay in Old Madrid!

Wonderful location and pleasant staff; good internet access and lobby services, however why in the world do guests have to go begging for soap, towels and toilet paper?
