As a couple, we stayed here for 2 nights in September and we really liked it a lot. The building is renovated beautifully at this very popular street filled with bars and restaurants in Madrid. The room was spacious, very well equipped and had a lot of features that made us think that somebody really put a lot of thought... More

This small hotel in the lively street of Cava Baja was a pleasant surprise. It was compact but the rooms are pretty adequate (the family size rooms are a good size). If you like a lot of space, get this room even if just for a couple as the extra bed is a murphy bed and is hidden in the... More

Great location in the renowned Calle Cava Baja. The hotel is very clean with modern facilities. The staff were extremely helpful, in particular given we don't speak Spanish. The restaurant is very good offering a range of choices including a sample of traditional dishes. The well appointed but small bar offers a welcome space to relax. The room was not... More

Pros: Great design, clean, well kept, professionally run. Restaurant is excellent. Cons: Noise can be loud from the street if you face that way, or from the restaurant till about midnight. The AC works, but the individual thermostats in the rooms are useless--it is one temp for the whole place, controlled at the main desk. It was too cold for... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the "Golden Lion Inn" for 3 nights in July. For our first visit to Madrid, we planned on staying in a quality hotel and based on the reviews we picked this one – our room was on the first floor and facing the street, Calle Cava Baja. First of all, the location and surroundings... More

A cute small hotel. Great location. We stayed in the Cava room which was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable and the view/balcony to the Cava Baja street was nice. The hotel was a bit noisy in the evening because of the bar downstairs but that was expected. The air conditioning device in the room didn't work and... More

My husband and I were fortunate to have this hotel recommended to us by a Madrilena colleague. We normally go for a Hilton, Hyatt, Radisson etc for a city break after an unfortunate "boutique" hotel experience in Amsterdam some years ago! However, we are now converts to 'the best things come in small packages' if the Posada del Leon de... More

We stayed here for four nights and were very happy with the friendly service, room and location. We arrived well before the posted check in time so there were no rooms available yet. The desk clerk let us leave our bags secured with him and we went off to have breakfast and explore the Sunday flea market, El Rastro. Our... More
