When i arrived, the woman at the desk was great. I had a few problems with the owners, but they were basically resolved. The place is in its final stages of being redecorated and is very attractive. Everything was fine. The location was perfect The elevator went directly from the lobby to the 6th floor with no steps to climb. The elevators in most of the hostels in the area stop between floors and people must walk up or down a half flight of stairs. This building was really good.. . .
The hotel is on a very busy road but any where you want to go is easy to get to. The hotel is actually on the 6th floor but there are lifts. The staff are all friendly and the rooms are clean if on the small side. The room was cleaned every day. The noise at night from the traffic made sleeping really difficult.
Location is very good .. near to Premark .. and staff was really very helpful .. the room size was moderate and clean ... There are many places to visit just walking from the hotel ... Would go there again ...
I think I would stay here again, if the price was right. I received this placement through a Priceline deal, and I wasn't altogether unhappy or happy. My disabled father and I booked two rooms. Our taxi found the hotel with ease, but getting to the front entrance of the hotel took some work each time we returned. The Grand Via is one way, and it was sometimes difficult to cross my Father. When we were exhausted from touristing, we requested the extra time/fare for the taxi to put us on the correct side for exiting to the hotel. The front entrance is fine, and the doorman was exceedingly friendly. We took the elevator to the sixth floor, and checked in. I was extremely happy that we were checked in early. THANK YOU! My first issue was accessibility. My father was unable to take a shower for the two nights we stayed. My room had a large step up into the bathroom. His room, where it was flat to get into the bathroom, they only had a tub arrangement, which posed a problem for Dad. The hallways are a bit dated, as are the rooms, but the beds ended up being quite comfortable. I slept very well. The noise outside wasn't too loud with the windows closed. Breakfast, which was expensive, was served in the lovely enclosed atrium. I appreciated having breakfast for my Dad, while I slept a little longer. I did feel uncomfortable disturbing the man at the front desk. I think he lives in the apartment behind the desk. I also didn't want to disturb the doorman with multiple trips upstairs after hours. They somewhat made it seem that it was a chore. For $64/night/room, I think this was a good deal. I would recommend it at this price.
Good location rooms need a little more update but overall good. Not an 24 hours hostel. Could use some renovations.
If I go back to Madrid I would stay here again. Its a mix between a hostel and a hotel. Its on the 6th floor but there are three elevators. At night a security guard will walk you up, you need to be sure to have your key and a slip of paper saying your a guest. The walls or thin but the set up is splendid. No one bothers you and the rooms have much of what one needs. There is a television, a safe that costs 1 euro a day and your own bathroom. Its small but cozy. My wife and I put two beds together to form a queen size bed. The side tables fold into the wall which gives you the ability to rearrange the room. I would recommended this place. Its in the heart of Madrid and is easy to access.
The hostal was simple, clean and staff members friendly; the location (on Gran Via) perfect. Nearby all shopping, subways, restaurants and historical sites. The room and bathroom was small, but clean, and the price is great for the location.
Booked the hotel directly. Pleasant to deal with via email however thats where it ended. The require you to pay on checking in. I assume this would be because people have left during their booking. Rooms are incredibly small and I have stayed in some small hotels. Rooms have double glazing (internal and external window and blackout shutters in beween that you can lower at night. However it does not block any of the noise and Grand Via is noisy. They have a small terrace - assume this is where breakfast was served as we had a room backing on to it and were woken every morning to people talking loudly at 8.30am (great when you have been out till 4). Bathroom - very tiny! Rooms however were cleaned well each day. Building is secure at night after 11. You have to ring the doorbell and be escorted to the hotel by the night guard. The building contains about 10 hotels of sorts. Owner is more than happy to help you get to the airport as long as you want a taxi. Will not help call the AeroBus, in fact actively discourages you to get the metro, bus, etc. I had asked him to book me a taxi for 6.45am to take me to the train station (while leaving my friend to sleep on before checking out later). Was picked up obviously by some "mate of his" who wanted to charge me 17 euro to drive me the 5 minutes to the train station. He actively discourages my friend to get the aerobus (17-20 euro) pushed my friend to get a taxi telling her it would be "no more than 28 euro" - maybe a 6am but certainly not 3pm with Madrid traffic. I stayed a few weeks later at another hotel in the same building and had such a different visit. Recommend you stay somewhere else.
Lo unico rescatable es la ubicacion y la limpieza, despues todo malo, te cobran el desayuno carisimo como si fuera ostentoso y son 2 tostadas x persona y cafe y leche justo no se repite. El lugar para desayunar es una mesa redonda en un espacio muy reducido, donde estas rodeado de plantas , si desayunan 4 personas no entran. Horrible el baño, para ingresar a la bañera hay que levantar el pie unos 50 cm del piso. Para una persona con problemas de movilidad imposible ingresar a bañarse.
Está en plena gran vía, pero la habitación es bastante normalucha, le hace falta una buena reforma, eso si, esta limpio y se agradece. La habitación es bastante pequeña y se oye todo lo que pasa en el pasillo y las habitaciones contiguas. Si fuese más económico sería perfecto, pero por 90€ la noche me parece caro y muy deficiente en relación calidad-precio.
