Cool hotel, Cool location

We thought this was a great hotel. We didnt want to break the bank but we didnt want something too cheap either. This was the perfect fit: room and bathroom were nice sizes, very clean, great A/C, offered a computer with internet for free. Great breakfast buffet. Great location where we walked to EVERYTHING. The Metro was right outside of the hotel. The hotel made our trip very comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

If you web search "madrid walking tours" or something similar (forgot what we did) you can find a great self-guided walking tour of the major sights in downtown Madrid (starting right outside of the hotel). It took us about 3 hours to complete and it was a great start to our vacation as soon as we arrived.

3 days in Madrid

We rented this hotel because of the central location and free bikes. This location was really in the center of shopping district , which is very noisy and after 10- 11 pm you cannot find any good restaurants except pizza places. Bikes weren't in the good condition for rent( that's what we got from the frontdesk staff) , but the old Madrid is not good for biking anyway too much traffic and a lot of people on the streets. We could walk or take a train from Puerta del Sol, which is not even 1 min walk from the hotel. There is a big supermarket Conde Igleas across the street from hotel in which you can get fresh fruits. Breakfast in the hotel was not that great.

central location

The hotel was clean, fairly quiet, and acceptable in all categories. It wasn't special in any particular way, but it was a comfortable size (for one), good lighting, and very clean. The bathroom was the most spacious part. I had intermittent trouble getting connected to the WiFi with my own computer, and the computer in the room wasn't able to get on the internet at all (probably a bad cable), but the front desk was not able to supply me with another cable. All staff at the front desk seemed to speak English well. Breakfast was not included. You could buy it but it was expensive. It's very easy to pick up breakfast for a few euros in the neighborhood. The location is very good. A short walk to lots of restaurants, a short walk to the museum area, and a short walk up to the Gran Via and to the Palacio Real side of town. It's right next to a Metro stop too.

Located in the center of Madrid

The location of the hotel is superb, right next to Plaza del Sol, which has a train station as well as a subway station. It is not noisy at night as it is in the shopping area rather than the going out area. There are many restaurants and bar areas nearby, like the latina neighborhood and the Plaza Mayor. Also, walking south from el Sol, there is a cinema with movies in original version.

Couldn't ask for more perfect location

Although there are many Petit Palaces sprinkled through historical Madrid, after walking around, this was by far the most conveniently located - to affordable shopping (including the supermercato in the basement of the dept store El Corte Ingles), most visited sights (less than 20 min walk East to museums, South to Plaza Mayor, West a little further to Palace) and to great affordable restaurants. Convenient to have free high speed laptop in room. Only one other comment about room - lights and shower doors are delicately constructed.

Great Location!

We had a wonderful time at this really perfectly located hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly, even allowing us to stay in our room an extra evening at the same cost. When we got there was a computer with internet access in the room, two bottles of Spanish champagne compliments of the house and we had three balconies that looked out over one of the most lively streets in town (right off of the Puerto del Sol). It was less than a minute walk from the Sol metro stop and in walking distance to Plaza Mayor and Palacio Real.

Nice Features

We were only there for one night. We booked a 4-person room but only 2 of us stayed there. I'm glad the other 2 weren't with us because it would have been a really tight squeeze. There were two bunk beds available for the other two. The hotel is located on a busy pedestrian shopping street, with Zara's downstairs. It's really close to a lot of things including the Palace, the main square, and tons of restaurants and shopping. Outside our balcony, there was a guy who would come by and serenade from time to time. Don't worry, even on a Friday night, it wasn't too noisy when it came time to go to sleep to catch our early morning flight.

Unbeatable location for the price

Couldn't ask for a better location. Staff responded promptly when we pointed out that top bunk bed was not clean...It would be helpful if there is a list of recommended good restaurants at reasonable prices... The one thing we didn't like is the cigarette smoke smell in the lobby and everywhere in Spain.
