This is a bright and comfortable hotel that is well positioned. We came by bus from the airport and the end of the line is Atocha station - the hotel is a 10 minute walk from here - although beware that it is up hill! After booking I received a welcome email from the hotel with detailed instructions on how... More

Place is very impersonal and you notice it right when you walk in. Asking for an iron literally took 3 calls/1 hour and the end result was no iron. My wife and I traveled to different regions in Spain during this vacation and we have stayed in many hotels, with this being the absolute worst. If your looking for poor... More

Dear guest, We are very sorry the hotel did not fulfilled your expectations. It is quite obvious you were expecting something absolutely different. No complaints, unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the tastes of everyone. Regarding the iron, and even if we have a laundry service (it is an exterior service) we bought five of them, just in the case someone wanted... More

Stayed at the hotel for a 1 week, the breakfast was the same day in and day out. Service at the dining hall was a bit slow, if you come late you'll have to wait for a clean table. The hotel is fresh though in the sense that the design is contemporary unlike it's classical counterparts. Security may be an... More

Fantastic rooms and a roof-top veranda with a jacuzzi and waiter service. Very close to Plaza Mayor and other great places with great nightlife. Also close to central bus station. Would highly recommend.

Was here with a tour group and the staff handled a large number of people quickly and efficiently. The location is great within walking distance of many of the key attraction of Madrid. The rooms are clean and attractively furnished. The showers are simply great. The breakfast buffet was abundant and very good. I would certainly come here again.

This hotel is well suited to tourists exploring Madrid. It is close to the major tourist attractions, with most within walking distance. Local tapas bars and restaurants are of good quality. The staff at the hotel are friendly and obliging. They were very helpful with advice concerning transport and restaurants. When we booked we were not aware that smoking is... More

Loved the layout and space thus provided in this hotel. We had interior room, so no view but very quiet which allowed for a much needed siesta. Location good for the price. Walking distance to all museums and Atocha train station. Fantastic shower (no tub) with two shower heads! Pillows need improvement. TV selection great and learned easily how to... More

I hope you will enjoy them in your next trip to Madrid. Best regards from... More
