Good Location

Would have been great..but there is no internet in the rooms, the sauna was broken, and no one helped me with my bags. My room was very small and the room service staff unfriendly. Otherwise, great location and nice looking building.

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?

Lovely hotel in great location

Loved the hotel and its location, but found Madrid difficult to find our way around. One hotel we stayed at gave us a walking tour from the hotel showing us the best way to see the nearby sites and the best restaurants, bars etc. This would have been helpful.

Great central location

Very clean hotel, centrally located and ideal for exploring central Madrid. The breakfast was a little expensive at almost 15euros. However it was very good and with the room rate being low overall it was good value. Prices were not displayed anywhere

Centrally Located, Quiet, & Comfortable

We stayed at the hotel for five days at the start of our trip through Spain and liked it so well we finished our trip with another two-day stay there. It is close to Sol, Plaza Mayor, and a Metro stop. You can easily walk to any of the major tourist attractions from the hotel. Very nice staff as well. The bathroom is a bit small, but then all of the rest we saw in Spain were not any larger!

Try the chocolate and churros just around the corner from the hotel (walking towards Gran Via)! Much better than the bigger hyped chocolate restaurant in the Sol area.
