5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is centrally located and a 20 minute walk in any direction takes you everywhere. The airport bus stops 200 yards away at place de Ciebles and the tour bus stops opposite. We were on the 5th floor at the front and road noise did not bother us. Breakfast was hot and cold and should suit everyone. The reception... More

My room had a horrible smell of cigarette smoke all the time since we arrived.I don't smoke at all and this was definitely very uncomfortable. Well situated though, good breakfast, metro station Gran via is less than 5 mins walking, this is a positive point.

We stayed for 4 nights and was originally booked into smoking standard room. The room was spacious but the shower was bad because water flowing is inconsistently hot, very hot then cold so had to jump away from the shower when that happens. To get to your room is Iike going through a maze and it can be complicated at... More

Traditional large hotel. Traditional style and furniture in the rooms. Good for families. Good and free wi-connection. Very good position to Prado, Museums area, Puerta del Sol and many other city spots.

We stayed two nights in this very central hotel. It's clean and has free and fast wireless internet (no gadget limits). Safety box, normal toiletries including hair dryer etc is included as well as tv (we didn't open it). Bonus points that is was warm inside even though outside it was not. I'd stay again.

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

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. There are 4 machines in the " gym", of which one is not working. the gym... More

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.
