a little problem with the lights' we couldn't torn of from the bad. the staff was wonderful.

This place is more of a hostel or budget hotel. Keeping that in mind, I would say they met expectations and offer a pleasant place to stay. No problems with the staff and the room, while small, was clean and comfortable. The in room safe costs 1 Euro for each use and you have to leave your key at the front desk when not in your room. Our window looked out onto a small courtyard where they were doing construction and didn't offer much privacy or any views (we mostly kept the blinds closed). Over all we thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. Location is good.

A very pleasant girl at reception checked me in. Hotel is very central - 5 mins from Gran Via Metro. The room was of an acceptable size and all the facilities were perfect. The internet worked well and it was a very comfortable bed. All was perfectly clean and in working order. No hesitation in recommending it.

I was traveling to 4 different cities in Spain, and thus stayed at various locations. Out of all the hotels that I stayed at, this place was absolutely the best value. If you're like me and am not too high maintenance, don't need marble floors, unnecessarily red and thick curtains, fancy breakfast buffets, this place is perfect for you. For Americans, a hostel makes it sound more budget friendly while perhaps a little lower in quality: that is certainly not the case here. From the entrance to the main lobby, the place looks very professional. The room was a little small, but I wasn't planning to do yoga in my hotel room anyways. Oh also: each room had a BALCONY, overlooking the streets. I've had other hotels in Spain charge me for Wifi, per hour or day. This place did NOT charge me for Wifi. The front desk personnel spoke good English (thank goodness as I do not speak a word of Spanish), and also: I forgot to pack my power converter for my american-electronic appliances, and the front desk personnel had one readily handy to lend me! All and all, absolutely love this place, and will definitely be staying here again if I return to Madrid,

The staff is very friendly. The location is near everything. The price is very excellent.

The hotel has a fantastic location. Everything in central Madrid is within 15 - 20 minutes walk at most. The staff is very friendly, gentle and helpful. The rooms are small but very clean and tidy. The bathroom has lots of hot water and is spotless.
