I enjoyed a lovely week staying at this hotel last March. El Coloso is in a very good location. Located in the heart of Madrid, between Gran Vía and Callao, the Hotel provides a comfortable atmosphere. It is close to some of the most famous attractions of the city, such as Palacio Real, Los Jardines de los Sabatini, el Teatro... More

Have broadly enjoyed our stay in this hotel which is in a very good location, five mins walk to two metro stations on different lines. Rooms are a good size and it is nice to have a bath as well as a shower. The breakfast is excellent and good value with many hot and cold options. The downsides however are... More

Enjoyed a lovely 3 nights staying at this hotel in a twin room with balcony. Very good facilities. Comfy beds. Nice decor. Breakfast for an additional £7, which was good value for money considering the vast array of food on offer at the buffet. Very helpful staff with a 24 hour reception and room service. Happy to help in any... More

We were rebooked at Coloso from their sister hotel Suites 33, which was overbooked. Supposedly Coloso is higher standard (4 stars). No way, Coloso is an old run-down hotel, where I'd never stay if it was my choice. Double bed size 140cm. Ugly smell all over the hotel. Extremely noisy from street below and because walls are like they are... More

We were allocated Room 316 upon arrival but I had already read that some of the rooms are at the front and and get noisy. This was the case as the police station is almost underneath as is a night club. The receptionist explained on checkin that she would try and find another room for us in the morning, which... More

El Coloso Hotel is in a great location to explore Madrid. As soon as I checked in the hotel front desk staff was very friendly. The room I was given was very clean. The only strange thing about this hotel is the elevator set up. You can either access it through the lobby , then get off on the first... More

Firstly in our opinion, based on comparative experiences of hotels in other countries both in Europe and North America, this hotel is most certainly not a 4 Star standard hotel. The one important positive in favour of the hotel is its' central location, situated within a couple of hundred meters of two Metro stations; Plaza De Espana and Santo Domingo.... More

We stayed at a big room with balcony. The room and bathroom were clean and comfy. Breakfast was good and selection was big. Staff helpfull and nice. Great location near the Gran via and plaza espana. 2 metro stations, 2 minutes walking distance. Will go back again.

Hotel is right in the centre, so perfect for seeing Madrid, but room was very small and dismal and the bed was the hardest I have ever slept on - it was like a board! And the pillows were rock hard too! Added to this, was the fact that they don't use duvet covers, but wrap the duvet in two... More
