Among other things, bathroom mirror was broken and the trash can needs a repalcement because it was also broken. The staff as always excellent, specially Javier at the front desk who always is truly a plus to... More

One of the important reasons we chose this hotel is its proximity to tapas bars/restaurants. Whichever direction you go, there's a tapas bar nearby. Madrid is a lovely place. My friends and I visited Madrid last October 3; we took the fixed-rate taxi (30 Euros -- note: 6 luggages 3 passengers) to the hotel and the driver, though not english-speaking,... More

Stayed their for 3 nights over the weekend in September. Location is really good; right in the centre with many of the attractions within easy walking distance. It is on Cava Baja - one of the busiest tapas / bar streets - so expect lots of people around and the hotel bar / restaurant was always busy at night. It... More

Centrally located and a stones throw away from Marcado de San Miguel ( also something not to miss!)Upon arrival we received a very warm friendly welcome along with a glass of Sangria! Lobby is beautifully decorated with old beams ,... More

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.

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
