The title sums it up... This is quite a big hotel, and can be slightly confusing getting around (it has 2 entrances,and may have been 2 separate buildings in the past) But don't let it put you off... The rooms are big and neat, if a little tired. The breakfast is well laid out, with good variety, and the service... More

The location is great,right in the centre of Madrid, you can walk to the main tourist attractions and metro stations. 3 minutes walk to Gran Via where you find lots of shops. Breakfast was nice but could be better. The staff was really helpful.

Location was excellent-located around a 5 minute walk to the metro and gran via. We arrived at El Coloso 2 hours before checkin and were checked in straight away! The hotel room was spacious and clean and was equipped with mini bar, tv and a/c. Noise was never really an issue once the blinds were down. Rooms were serviced daily.... More

This hotel is just off the Main street - Gran Via and thus you have more silent environment. Just in the neighbor of local police-station:) The hotel has two entrances, because perhaps joining two premises. The lobby is spacious and nice. Breakfast is sufficient enough to feed you until you eat dinner at 9pm. (You should have coffee and snacks... More

Booked this hotel online for 3 nights. We would have left after first night but we had already paid for 3 thru booking.com . First night we were in a room that overlooked street. Room needed painting very bad. Room was extremely noisy from people partying in the street. Wifi was sketchy at best. Next day we asked to change... More

It's location is very good but this is a hotel out of some weird 60s film...very out of date. Dirty rooms, dirty fittings. The place could do with some major work to be 4 star... If this was a cheap budget hotel I would understand but it is not cheap

We chose this hotel for a last minute holiday because it was reasonably priced and in a good location. I read some comments on here and it seemed alright. The outside and reception area is well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was a really good size (one of the biggest I've stayed in) and... More

4 stars might be a bit of a stretch to some, but this is a very good hotel. Our rooms were impeccable (we stayed two separate nights, each in a different room). Bed was excellent, ar conditioning, bathroom was very nice and clean, the shower is excellent as well as the bath tub, even if it's not too big. The... More
