Great option for Madrid

My husband and I were in Madrid over the new year holiday. The rooms were spacious - the largest we'd been in throughout our Spain vacation - the staff was friendly and knowledgable and put up with my poor attempts at Spanish. The breakfast spread was amazing. I recommend getting the breakfast included in the cost of the hotel stay if you can. The only thing that made me pause was that most of the hotel could use a paint job and the carpet needs to be replaced. That had zero impact on the pleasant nature of our stay there, though.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

El Mollete Taverna is a short distance from the hotel. It's very quaint and the waiter, whom I assumed was also the owner because his picture was all over the wall with his arms around customers, was sweet and made thoughtful recommendations. Do yourself a favor and have the goat cheese. Reasonably priced, good tapas.

Very Noisy

Nice hotel in a very good location close to many bars and so very noisy at night, at least the room I was in. Very noisy air conditioner also. Expensive for what it is.

great location

After staying in 3 star hotels along the coast of Spain which were very modern we were disappointed with this four star rating basically because the hotel seemed a bit worn. That being said, the room was quiet, clean, the shower was wonderful and the location was prime. It was close to shopping, restaurants, and most of the sights you would want to visit. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. I would probably stay there again because it suited our needs.

Great Break

We had a great stay in the Tryp Ambassador. Hotel spotless through out and the attention to detail was second to none, flowers in reception just one example. Hotel is close to centre but away form the busy streets so it has the best of both. Breakfast in the hotel was beautiful. Staff very helpful and obliging. Madrid is a beautiful place to visit and this hotel made our stay excellent. 5 nights away felt like 10.

Perfect in everyway!,

This hotel is everything it says it is. From entering when you arrive, to the personnel at the desk, who are so willing to help. The "standard" room was awesome, so imagine how the upgrades are. They upsold us the breakfast the following day for a discount. Breakfast was Awesome, we couldn't have eaten anywhere else for the price. Location was perfect. Thank you for a fabulous stay. :) we will see you again.

Staff trying to upsell you

The staff is pushy, trying to upsell you to a bigger room. The trick was they were charging $20 Euros per person for breakfast and they could "lower" the price of breakfast ONLY if you choose a "nicer" room that the one you had reserved! At the end you will end up paying more! Very dishonest front desk. I observed how they worked their upselling trick with everybody that arrrived! The hotel wasn't worth the price we paid. They are nicer hotels in the area for a lesser price and with honest staff.

Great Place, Perfect location

If you are looking for a clean, safe, reasonably priced, comfortable hotel in a perfect location to see Madrid than this is the place for you. The hotel is less than a five minute walk from two metro stations (Opera & Santa Domingo). It is situated in the historic section of "Old Madrid." Many major sites are less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel. My family found the hotel room to be very comfortable. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel because it was so expensive, but there were three McDonalds, a Starbucks, and many cafe's within a short walk. I would stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The hotel has several day trip options they can help you book with very short notice. We booked at 2100 for a trip that left at 0900 the next day. No issues. Go to Toledo. It is amazing. We did the half day trip. I would recommend the full day trip.
