Hotel Emporador is right across the Santo Domingo metro stop in Gran Via, just a few steps from Plaza del Callao and Plaza España. All the must see places in Madrid are close by or just a few stops away via the metro. The staff at the hotel was super attentive, and accommodating as we arrived early ...
Great location. Close to tons of restaurants almost everything walkable. Staff very helpful and professional. Rooms very nice--especially the bathrooms. City noise from front rooms but I actually like that. Construction out front on street but that's going on the whole street. Love the rooftop terrace ...
Excellent service at the reception. Clean and pleasant room. Hard to get to even with GPS. Parking was free although listed at 30 euros in Orbitz description. This may depend on how full the convention center was.
It was very centric hotel, near Plaza Mayor and Mercado San Miguel. You could walk to anywere without problem. Breakfast was ok and the staff very helpfull and nice.
Stay away from this hotel. Mean staff. Small rooms. Will not recommend to a friend.
Location is close to all the major attractions. Close to a few metro stops. Hotel staff was very helpful. Three options for eating and drinking within the hotel. Because its in the middle of the city, it gets loud at night. You can hear everything on the street level even though we were on the 4th floor, but it wasn't too bad.
We stayed 1 night to catch the plane next day. It was convenient and provided nice airport transfer.
