It is a nice place, good location but a little bit old. I think they should renew it and change the furniture, specially the beds and mattress. It has a very good location on the Gran Via, butt a little bit noisy

Hotel is quite old, could use some refurnishment. Some rooms are quite cold, because the windows are single glass. After a complaint about the cold room I got a nicer and bigger room, which was not cold. Internet is really good. Breakfast is ok.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in November, very dated but it was the unhelpful reception staff that really let it down. Bar staff very slow, bar has no atmosphere- feel as if you're sitting in a lobby. Bedroom very hot, staff wouldn't put on aircon, room very clean.

The hotel is within walking distance to a great number of the city's main attractions, located in an old building on the extremely busy Gran Via. The hotel is ok and practical. The breakfast is good. It "does the job". It just doesn't have any tingle factor and is not particularly beautiful. But recommended as a well-located, reasonably priced option... More

Stayed twice and definitely would go back. Walking distance to the Prado Museum and the Madrid Hop-on-Hop-off bus. Plenty of good dining and a small grocery nearby. Rooms are fine although we chose an inside room the second stay because of street noise. Madrid is pretty much an all night city. The Wi-fi was great in the first room and... More

We did eat it the 3 mornings we were there, but it was slightly below average. It was, however, a full buffet, with eggs, toast and pastries, fruit and yogurt. Juice, bottled water and coffee. The...
