Stayed at this hotel with another couple in August 2014 for four nights. At check-in was greeted by Irene, who was a very pleasant, smiling face at the reception area. Check-in was easy and quick. The rooms, overlooking Atocha Street, were comfortable and clean. Iron and board were requested and delivered promptly. We were given Welcome Drink vouchers, as we... More

Chose this hotel due to excellent previous reviews and couldn't fault it. Very clean, modern, stylish rooms of a good size overlooking a lovely atrium central seating area. Excellent location for sightseeing in a good neighbourhood. Staff very helpful and accommodating. We didn't eat in due to the vast selection of excellent restaurants nearby. Rooms very well sound proofed too.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a stopover in Madrid. We found the hotel to be a stylish, very clean & comfortable hotel. Our room was spotlessly clean with an extremely comfortable bed and had quite possibly the best hotel shower we have ever used. Can't comment on hotel food as we didn't eat in, the breakfast was priced... More

Overall very good for money. In and out very clean. The extra cost for Atocha street view however was wasted, as there hardly is any view. Location is convenient but Atocha street itself is quite dull and slightly run down. Breakfast is up to its cost. Worth it.

The hotel is in a quiet side street backing on to the Plaza Mayor and right at the start of the old town. The room was clean and I had a double room with single occupancy. It was good for one but would have been a squash with two adults and two suitcases. I was cold the first night as... More

The location of the hotel is a very good.I have a room over a busy road but the noise proofing was excellent.I stayed in a room with three beds (two adults,one child) so the space was limited.The breakfast was very good (included in price). The negative is that the hotel is very expensive for what is offer.

I didn't know where I wanted to be since I was traveling through Madrid to Morroco. I wanted a decent price, decent hotel and decent location. All were great. Location was best, walking to a lot of options and short taxi to others. Really great option!

Been here for 5 days, location is perfect, very close to some major attractions and great restaurants. Check-in was ok. During the stay I was very sick, the lady at the reception was so rude, she did not want to help us find a hospital where they speak english, she was busy with her other things I suppose.
