Just visiting

Like many old and rather expensive hotels in Europe, this one also needs to upgrade its water & sewer systems, and its facilities. The staff is inatentive at best, and well below theircounterparts in terms of service in Europe and the US. They need to learn how others do it to back up its four star claim. I've gotten better service and quality from lots of roadside hotels and motels in North America for a fraction of the price. The front desk and lobby are rather uninviting; dark and cramped. The only good thing is its location if you want to stay near historic sights to visit.

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, not so great hotel

I must say we were taken aback when we arrived and realized that the hotel's entrance was flanked by homeless people who remained there during our 2-day stay. My wife and 2 daughters picked the Vinci Capitol because we enjoyed because we enjoyed their Seville hotel. If you're looking for a quiet night's sleep look elsewhere - this hotel is in a very boisterous part of Madrid. We were on the 8th floor and the sound of the street action was going pretty strong at 2:00 am, but it was a Saturday night in Madrid. Overall the room was well appointed and clean. Bathroom was modern and roomy. Toilet wasn't able to adequately flush, but when we notified the hotel they quickly fixed the problem.

recent stay - Oct 09

Great location across from Metro Callou on Grand Via. Despite a very busy, noisy street the windows effectively blocked the noise and we slept wonderfully on great mattresses with fresh, high quality sheets. The one frustration was the lack of WIFI in the rooms, although we eventually found out that we could get an ethernet cable from the front desk to use in our room. This worked, but it wasn't easy to find this out. The breakfast buffet is wonderful but expensive if not included in your room rate. Try to get it included. Staff were very helpful and spoke excellent english. Hotel easily accessible from airport by metro.

madrid hotel

The hotel added a spa charged that I didn't use. When I confronted the man at the desk, he became hostel and argued with me. He had my signed recipts for the breakfast that we had, but no signed recipt for the spa. He took off the charge and told me to leave - very rude. I had the feeling that this was a common occurance.

Madrid Experience

Great location in the heart of Gran Villa. Short walk to explore the neighborhood: Plaza Mayor, Shops, Eateries. Take a walk and explore the Spanish architecture surrounding the community, rich in tradition and history. Jamon or ham is what they are famous for, cannot miss this. Overall friendly community. Don't forget Botin, the oldest restaurant in the world: specialty is roast suckling pig and have a flan for dessert.

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.

Intelligence test in Madrid

The room was big, airy, clean, quiet but suffered from being refurbished and redesigned. In the bathroom, the counter beside the sink had a mirrortop which reflected the overhead lights and made the magnifying mirror unusable. The soap was soluable and pale and so disappeared if dropped in the tub. The clothes rack in the closet went from front to back (instead of side to side) which made it difficult of access. The light switches were bunched and incomprehensible though clearly marked. When one turned on the bright bedside reading lights, all other lights dimmed. The light in the bathroom often went off when other lights were turned on. The trick is to turn on all lights and then dim some to extinction--but it took us three days to find the dimmer. Frustrating, sometimes aggravating which should not be the effect a hotel room should have upon an occupant no matter how transient, and we were there for a week.
