This hotel offers a good compromise in between European and American standards, The rooms, although small, not as small as other European hotels, not as large as most American, great bathroom setup. The wifi was great, good speed and free. There is no food service (at leats not that I could see) there is an small bar, but the place... More

Hotel across from a metro line which had links to the Airport and to the city centre. In a quiet part of Mardrid so if you wnated some night time activity you had to go down town. Hotel adequate and good value, clean.and food was good. Would stay here again.

Welcoming staff, clean room with good beds and minibar with actual beverages inside. The only bit disappointing thing would be the breakfast. Stale bread and dried out scrambled eggs, dry and hard bacon and where's the cava? Fortunately there was plenty of other stuff to make up for it.

Location is brilliant. Metro station is just 1 min walk so that's really handy. In Madrid only metro if you want to go anywhere. Room was nice clean ( hot water :) Wifi is free so that's another box tick. Close to the airport. Nice staff.

The hotel is just at the metro station "Plaza de Castilla": Less than 30 minutes to downtown Madrid. The staff was polite, friendly but had difficulties giving us information about the interesting places in the area. Clean (but old) rooms, clean bathrooms. Air conditioning couldn't be regulated, our room was quite hot in december. Wifi is okay. No electric kettle... More

This is a pretty standard business hotel good access to Metro but it is in the financial area so you need to travel into the centre each evng which is either a quick metro trip or a €15. taxi ride. Hotel feels a bit dated but rooms are a decent size and were clean and air conditioning functioned well. Wifi... More

This hotel is conveniently located (don't you ever take a taxi from Barajas to it, take the metro. Trust me) rooms are quite nice and quiet. However, I've got a few beefs. I've been using the same tiny bar of soap since I've got here (three days now) and housekeeping can't seem to fathom the fact that you might need... More

I stayed here on a business trip which was arranged by a company. Its main asset is that it has a bus station and the Metro right outside, and it is only 6 stops on the Metro to the IFEMA conference centre which was my destination. Its also quite close the airport as highlighted by other reviewers. However, you are... More

Location is fine, not in the touristic area, but a step from subway, buses and close to the airport. Taxi is around eur 15 to Puerta del Sol. Our suite was big enough and the bed was huge and comfortable. Wifi was free, but not very fast. Breakfast was good, breakfast room is OK. Reception is really slow for check-in,... More
