Apart-Hotel Serrano Recoletos

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in this apartment hotel for 4 nights back in October 2017. When booking the room, we requested two single beds, but ended up having one double bed in our room instead. As we were both extremely tired after travelling, we couldn’t be bothered to complain about it. We probably should have informed the staff as neither of us slept well during our stay due to that (+also the mattress was very hard which I personally find uncomfortable). Now, few months later is way too late to complain about the bed issue as we did not say anything straight away, but thought I’d let people know about this anyway. This did not affect my rating. The room itself was modern, large and very tidy, spacious toilet/shower room with good shower. There was also a little kitchenette in the apartment room which included a fridge, hob and a sink + cupboard, but no cutlery, crockery or a kettle. Not sure if these items were available on request. The room was cleaned daily which was nice. There was also a laundry room available to use, so if any washing needed to be done, it was possible. Wi-Fi did not work in our room. The location of this apartment hotel was perfect for us. Not far from anywhere (within a walking distance) and most importantly it was in a quiet and safe street (near a big and busy road though!) There were couple of shops/supermarkets around and lots of restaurants, all within a walking distance from this place. Even with the language barrier, the housekeeping ladies were very friendly and helpful. The staff behind the reception also helpful, not the friendliest though. The price-quality ratio was good, we got what we paid for. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in a standard quality place, but who is not after any luxury.

Great sized bedroom and bathroom however I do not think they should be advertised as apartments. although supplied with a kitchen sink and 2 hobs there are no other cooking facilities such as a toaster/ microwave or kettle. There is also no equipment to cook with like pans or plates. Unsure if you request these things? Good location, easy to walk to the National Park and town centre. Good atmosphere, staff were helpful and friendly, bar is cheap.

Location is very good. Also hotel rooms and services are good. Hotel staff are supporting in nature. Rooms facility and cleaning services are also good. Other facilities of the hotel are also very good.

Great position and clean room with furnishings ok. However the bathroom was not up to it as water went all over the floor due to no wall around the shower. Towels and linen were old and soap and body wash was limited in supply.

Clean hotel but basic and it felt very impersonal. No cups or kettle initially available in the room, we had to request these, we were not charged but I am unsure if this is the norm. Air conditioning was poor, bed had plastic cover on which made for a sweaty nights' sleep. No BBC news channels available, only Spainish.

The hotel was well located for the price but the check in process too far too long, the room was not entirely clean (hair on the floor) and soap, toilet paper, etc. were not replenished. The requested coffee maker was provided. However, the coffee requested never arrived.

Very impressed with location of hotel. Good size rooms and bathroom. Close to stations (metro and Renfe services). About 15 to 20 min walk to nearest supermarket. Close to museums and the park down the road.

We stayed here in July 2017. Based on some of the previous reviews were weren't expecting much. However, it more than surpassed our expectations. The guy on the check in desk was polite and friendly. There was a slight language barrier as my Spanish skills are limited but we managed and he was very polite and helpful. Our room accommodated a family of four with two young children. The room was modern and has a good sized fridge freezer. There was also a microwave and hob. I recommend this apartment as a good place to stay if you are planning on getting out and about in Madrid and are looking for a comfortable place to rest on a night. Its location is excellent. Close to the Retiro park. The rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaners were very friendly and made a fuss of our children which was nice. I would definitely stay here again.

I've been in this hotel for less than 2 hours and it's been awful. Bathroom was dirty and they haven't been able to clean it in 40 minutes because "the reception desk is full", they clearly have different priorities. Bad wifi signal as well, hopefully this review can be uploaded. The location is good though, but not worth to stay here.

This hotel is in a really good location, close to the metro and a lot of restaurants and shops. That is about the only good thing about this hotel. The beds are terribly uncomfortable. The bathrooms are dirty. The rooms aren't very clean, we found an old booger on our wall. One bed in our room was made from an ottoman and when asked to switch to a real mattress, there was quite the fuss. Hotel staff is not very accommodating. Air conditioning doesn't seem to work either. Wifi is very slow. If you're coming for a quick, one night, budget stay than this is your place. Otherwise, book else where. I will definitely never come back to this hotel.
