Great Little Hotel in Excellent Location

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!!!

EXCELLENT CHOICE

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

Ideal location for Madrid adventures.

The hotel is conveniently located in an excellent part of Madrid; within walking distance of shopping, lite dining, and major attractions. There's a metro station very close to the hotel if you have to travel longer distances. The staff was kind and courteous. The double room was spacious, clean, and more than accommodates two persons. If you are a lite sleeper, you may want to skip this hotel because it's on a busy street. From the second floor, the street noise was not heard, unless party goers were quite loud. I traveled during the New Year holiday so there was a lot of police sirens; I'm not sure if this is the norm. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends, and stay at this hotel on future trips to Madrid.

Short stay in Madrid was perfect !

I only had to be in Madrid for a short stay, and when I arrived I was drained and needed to sleep. The staff accommodated my situation and made my stay INCREDIBLE. I would gladly come back.

Unbeatable location for the price

Good breakfast, great location. We were there during world cup so noise could have been due to timing. Right near the metro. Walking distance to lots.

Comfort in the heart of Madrid

This hotel is awesome for tourists wanting to be in the very heart of Madrid. It is easily accessible from Metro Callao or Gran Via and is in the very center of the city. Lots of great nightlife and tourist sites are within easy walking distance ... and the rooms are fantastic: spacious, comfortable, air-conditioned (!), and well-maintained. I would not recommend this hotel for travelers arriving by automobile.

Petit Palace Ducal Hotel Madrid

The Petit Palace is a small, clean hotel which offers free internet; which is an added plus. It is quite safe; but it is in a very congested area of Madrid. The hotel is right around the corner from Gran Via,which is a large avenue with many shops, restaurants and traffic. A car is not necessary because you can walk or take the metro to most places. The Metro makes going on day trips quite easy. The Metro in Spain is very clean and efficient. Because many of the rooms in the front of the hotel are right off Gran Via, it is quite noisy at night. Request a room in the back of the hotel if you are staying with children.

When buying a ticket for the metro, get the 10 ticket ride because you save money and you are bound to use the metro many times during your visit.
