great location

Central location for enjoying all the activities including shopping, strolling in Plaza Mayor and Plaza Del Sol late in the evening. Mcdonalds across the street for free WiFi and breakfast. Theaters, bus tour stops, metro and restaurants close by.

Average attention to Detail.

The Hotel has been refurbished in a clean modern manner but the designer has replaced practicality with trendy fixtures and fittings. The shower head looked good but was useless, the water would stop at peak hour when too many rooms were showering, the plugs were broken as was the shower mixer. The lighting was poor so good luck in the bathroom when your shaving )))but sometimes its better not to see too many details! The reception was understaffed so getting information was a chore. I don't think the designers have stayed in too many hotels as there was little space for suitcases. On a positive note the location was great, the design was slick and modern, the rooms were clean and the internal rooms adjacent to the light well were really quiet.

great location in the middle of madrid

Great location and surprisingly quiet given it is on a major street. Air conditioning so good we needed a blanket at night in August. Renovation has left it will a very contemporary almost boutique feel. Good internet connections when we finally got to a room that had a working cable. Would stay there again for the price and the location

metro is super fast and easy to use once you have a map. Airport is 3 changes away but only 2 euros compared to 20 plus for a cab. There are escalators and elevators to make doing it with a bag possible and the stop is literally round the corner from the hotel

Great Location

This hotel was in the perfect location, it was in the center of Madrid, close to five metro stations which made getting around easy. Various restaurants and shops along the street of the hotel. Great for people who want to see the lively city of Madrid, especially at night. Walking distance to major tourist attractions, such as Palacio Real, Plaza Oriental, Plaza Mayor, Plaza de Espana, and much more.

great location

great location to almost everything: walking distance to Plaza Mayor, shopping, plaza espana, and the other major plazas. easy access for the bus that will take you to Prado museum, and if you like the real Madrid stadium.

Excellent hotel in the heart of Madrid

A perfect base to discover Madrid from. The rooms are ideal - comfortable beds and bathroom with bath and shower. If there was one improvement that could be made, it would be that the internet service offered would be wifi rather than a crude/clumsy and expensive (9 euro/day) internet by TV; though there is an ethernet cable offered for laptops, this is not wireless for smartphones.. but then Madrid has free wifi in the squares outside. It has a nice bar, friendly staff, 24hr reception where English is fairly understood and excellent 360 views of Madrid from the open patios on the 7th and 9th floor. There are too many great places close by, to have only hotel breakfasts.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

For eating can recommend anywhere in Plaza Mayor as a good starting point. For a treat eating with flamenco, goto Las Carboneras as it's well worth the money. Also, if you get a chance, see Carmen (Teatro Nuevo Apolo June/July 2010)

Good experience

We only stayed in this hotel for a night in Madrid, but I was pleased. It was around $150 USD, which I thought was a good price. The prepaid checkin process was seamless. The rooms, while not large at all, were comfortable, clean and modern. Same with the bathroom. There is a nice lookout on the 9th floor where you have a great view of the city and the Gran Via. The location is fantastic, very short walk to Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, etc. Wakeup call came when we requested. Overall pleased. Oh, there is no wifi, but they can provide ethernet cable which worked fine. It was long enough to sit on bed comfortably.

great location, nicely appointed

We found the hotel to be well maintained and perfectly located (walking distance to Puerto del Sol, the Plaza Mayor. Metro stop right next to hotel at Place Callao allowed easy travel and connection to sites inside and outside Madrid (we used bullet train to get to Sevilla and Toledo, local train to El Escorial and bus to Segovia. All easy connections from Metro.) Desk staff had good English skills and were generally friendly and helpful. The rooms were modern, clean, and well sized for the two of us (went with my 15 year old son.) We did not use the on property restaurant. Seemed a little expensive and there were so many great options in close walking distance. All in all a very good experience. I highly recommend!

Do the evening Paseo from 9 pm on to see the people of Madrid. Drop in for tapas and drinks at any of the many restaurants and bars. Enjoy the ambience!
