We spent 8 nights at this wonderful little hotel right off Gran Via, in the heart of Madrid. Everything is within walking distance from here, and the subway is less than a block away (Gran Via station).
We had a room on the 6th floor, with our
own large balcony, so we could sit outside and sip wine after coming back from our excursions. The room was great, even a bit larger than normal for European standards, with a little fridge and a safe. WiFi worked the whole time. Noise was not an issue. The only problem was that is was unseasonably hot for the year, so we left one of our room key cards in the slot whenever we went out to let the air conditioning run continuously, which worked well.
The hotel has a sumptious two-for-one breakfast bar with a large selection of hot and cold items. Of course, coffee bars and little restaurants are everywhere in the area, with a small discount grocery store close by.
The staff is extremely friendly and very responsive, whether it be printing off tickets and boarding passes or giving advice for a place to eat.
Finally, the hthoteles chain has hotels in other cities in Spain, so arrangements can be made to stay in Barcelona or Sevilla for a night or two.
We will stay in this hotel again next time we return to Madrid! Olé!!!

Review of Petit Palace Ducal Chueca

The hotel is conveniently located in the center of Chueca and a block away from La Gran Via...the room was spotless and the decoration was modern and very tasteful. I will definitely go back
