Hotel was OK - kind of in a "commercial" area so not much around. The mattress in Room 103 is "toast" and should be replaced. Staff OK. Our roon was noisy til about 0100 due to children running around in the hallways and upstairs.

Stayed here to attend a wedding locally, it was close to where we needed to be, and others were there as well, budget, clean, very limited facilities. Probably would not choose to stay there again, apart from location.

Stayed for one night on our way out of Spain, as it was not to far from the airport. I requested an upper floor, given a first floor room. No air conditioning - in none of the rooms! The room was hot in April, I can't imagine how it must be during the summer. The window opened fully but had... More

Visited Madrid to attend a wedding in the north, so chose hotel based on its access to motorways. It was also quite close to the Warner Park which we visited and there were a few families staying there for that reason. The staff were helpful and friendly, hotel was clean and as depicted in photographs. My only criticism is that... More

Stayed at this hotel during our 3 days stay in Madrid. Hotel is quite far away from downtown, but transit connections are good and you only have to take a bus and then the tube to get downtown. Commute is easy and convenient, and not being in the middle of the city makes the area a bit quieter. Checkin was... More

We stayed overnight here on our way down to Southern Spain. We were greeted cordially in English by Mercedes, who gave us lots of information about where to eat as the hotel had no restaurant. Yes our room may have been a little on the small side but who needs a huge room for an overnight stay? The room was... More

LOCATION & ATTRACTIONS NEARBY *** Just near busy highway, few kilometres from central Madrid, close to many shopping centres, restaurants, petrol stations and other shops. There is a secured, closed complimentary car park in front of the hotel (spacious enough for many cars and also few coaches). HOTEL OVERVIEW *** Quite standard HIE stop-over hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean hotel.... More

Pardon the rhyme but this was not my favorite HIE. Some of the rooms smelled like smoke so we had to get to a third room. The carpet was old and looked dirty. The bathrooms had few amenities (though this seemed to be standard in Spain/Portugal). The staff, though, were VERY friendly and the eating area had a great view... More
