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. Gaston and... More

We stayed four nights at this hotel. We could not fault the running (or operations) of the hotel in any way. The only thing I did not like about the hotel - this being purely a matter of personal preference - was its location.

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights staying in a suite. It was on the top floor (floor 6) with windows that open but are up high so there are no views. Upon entry of the room, you have about 6 shelves for clothes etc, a lounge area with a 2 seater couch, ottoman, coffee table, lamps, rug and an... More

Spent one night here on business. The location is excellent, close to the Hotel Me and an easy walk to the museums. The neighbourhood has numerous small places to eat and drink and there seems to be a lot of local nightlife. Check in was excellent: very efficient and very helpful with directions, maps etc. The breakfast was fine covering... More
