Ayre Gran Hotel Colon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall not that great and I wouldn't recommend to anyone traveling to Madrid where there are so many other places to stay. The pictures were misleading and not at all where we stayed. Room smelled, the bathroom was gross, bed sheets were incredibly old. Just don't stay here.

We were very happy with out stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It is close to the public transportation line and an easy ride to Old Madrid. We would stay here again.

One of the best hotels I have been able to obtain via Orbitz for sure, it offered a lot more tha what it was depicted on their profile. Staff is super helpful, location is very convenient (two blocks from metro Sainz de Baranda) with many restaurants, grocery stores and tapas bars around. Rooms are top class and I LOVED the bathroom facilities.

Hotel is close to metro station and be aware there is a parking fee of €23.

I wouldn't stay in this hotel if I got it for free. Terrible service unpleasant and arrogant staff. I would fire most of the staff there, what happened guest first...

Nice hotel but wifi was poor. Also pillows were like rocks.

I requested a non-smoking room and this wish was granted except for the fact that room had a strong smoke odor. Staff was as expected for Europe standar (acceptable service). Bar did no have too much choices and for some reason you need to pay every time something is served. My card was charged multiple times (my bank have several fees for this transactions, beware ). About location, is is near train and metro stations, but probably too far from almost anything important in the city...except for retiro park

The location was a little further out from the center of the city. This made for a quiet afternoon. The WiFi at this hotel was the best we had all week. There was 3 restaurants attached to hotel that were convenient. Although we didn't eat at them they seemed busy and food smelled good. Hotel was very clean and fairly quiet. Made for a nice retreat. Close enough to metro and bus stations to make for easy transport.

The hotel was very clea, good location, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Very friendly staff, nice rooms, location was fine. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Great stay. Good comfortable room and helpful staff.

It's very clean and comfort. May not be in the most popular area but public transportation accessible and easy to get to everywhere. Very quiet to get a good night sleep for the busy next day.

This hotel is by-far one of the nicest hotels that I've stayed in while traveling. The rooms are immaculate and the one we had was very large (on the top floor, with a beautiful view of madrid and a balcony). The staff were incredibly helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay better. For example, a towel rack in the bathroom broke and when we called the front desk they said not to worry and it would be fixed before we returned from dinner. As promised, it was, no questions asked. The hotel is very close to a metro stop, which is nice for getting into the city. The bed was very comfortable and clean. While we didn't eat there, the hotel restaurant had a menu that looked very good and relatively (as far as hotel prices go) inexpensive. A nice touch on top of their service is a welcoming chocolate truffle and chocolate strawberries plate when you first check-in to the room. Honestly, I can't think of a downside or bad thing to say about this hotel. We booked early, too, which definitely kept the room price down (as I could imagine it might get a little pricey).

I enjoyed being in Spain a lot. It was lots of fun:)

Positive: Very good hotel good location with the highway and principal street, beautiful decoration, good space in the room, very conform crib for my baby, good lobby decoration. Negative: In the American Building not have bar area to obtain service we need to cross to the another building Europa and wait for other people to up my child car by the stair.
