Recent guest reviews

Nice small hotel with 17 rooms and a nice and lively restaurant and bar right at the entrance. We stayed in two larger rooms and due to some noise in one room we where swiftly relocated to another room. Stayed for a weekend in early February with family.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March and were very pleasantly surprised. Our room was very spacious (huge bed, large tv, nice bathroom, balcony) and spotlessly clean. Staff are great and the bar downstairs is really nice. Location is also excellent - we walked everywhere!

We decided last minute to take a long weekend in Madrid, this hotel was an excellent choice in price, location, atmosphere, and service. Its worth noting if you want to stay in a quiet place, this might not be the place for you, the rooms are on levels surrounding a restaurant courtyard, and this restaurant is VERY popular! We were only on the second floor, so I dare say if you were at the top (4 floors I think) then it would be less noticeable, not that it kept us up, we were so exhausted from walking eating and drinking that we slept like babies! The staff were above and beyond, what I mean by this is, they were happy and smiling! It's so nice to be in a place where people seem genuinely happy in their job! The bar area in this hotel is very small, but the measures a large, the food scrumptious and again it has a wonderful atmosphere. We did have an issue with our air conditioning, but a word to reception and it was sorted same day. The breakfast was delicious, lots of fresh farmhouse style bread, with jams and preserves, yoghurts and plenty of cold meats *The ham is amazing) They also cook to order from a small menu. All in all I have to say I would definitely seek out this hotel again, it is perfectly situated for the food market *One of the best places to eat!!* There are lots of bars and shops close by, it was a very lovely trip .

Our room with a balcony overlooking Cava Baja was stylish, spacious and comfortable. The location is excellent and we could walk to everything we wanted to see . Trip Advisor is asking me to add more detail but I think I’ve got it in a nutshell and I’m just padding this out so my review can be posted.

This hotel is well located in easy access to Madrid's main tourist attractions, there are some issues like the rooms at night are very noisy since the restaurant downstairs is directly connected to the rooms, fridays and Saturdays are very loud. Breakfast is very basic, I recommend eating breakfast in one of the many restaurants nearby.

The beautiful restaurant is tucked away in the end of the reception and behind the bar. One of the speciality is the cocido which is served in 2 or 3 services (soup, vegetables and meat). The price for the cocido including an excellent wine is 14,90€ per person. As an aperitif, we had some houmous and toast, the the first course of the cocido, an succulent broth with vermicelli followed by a very well garnished cocido. Second helping was also offered and so we did. That was our best meal in Madrid! Highly recommended...

Cool little place on a side street near Plaza Mayor. Four stories high over a medieval inn with the original building exposed under a glass floor. Small rooms and bathrooms, but clean with nice bedding. Delicious breakfasts and café con leche. Helpful staff. Street the Inn is on can get crowded, noisy and littered. Easy walk to Palace and Cathedral.

The hotel is okey, but does live up to its cost/price. For instance, have the staff forgotten that I am their guest or even their customer..... its a basic clean hotel, but for 180 euros...nope. The location is fine, just no its irritating that the waiter has left the building. Food is prepared before hand. No sorry...

No window to the outside and terribly noisy since the sounds from the restaurant echoes right into your room. I have never stayed in a hotel that doesn't get any natural light. also said it was a 4 star hotel when in fact it is a 3 start hotel.

I have not stayed here yet but a friend who lives not far took me, she said it serves the best G&T's in Madrid and it does, you can have tapas or just a drink, got a great wine selection and Gin of course, friendly bar staff and great location, will stay the next time I am in Madrid. Cant recommend a room but the Gins are superb ;)
