I spent wonderful good time in this hotel. It is strategically located between 2 metro stations, and within a walking distance from many major Madrid's attractions.Staff members were both polite and knowledgeable, and made me feel at home.. Breakfast was definitely above of what I experienced in many other 4* hotels. I would not hesitate to stay there again if... More

This is more like a 3-star, mid-scale hotel, rather than 4-star. Overall, it's a good value due to its prime location (right behind Gran Via and just a quick walk over to Plaza de Espana, and other areas; a couple double-decker bus tour stops just a few mins away by foot, food market next door), the quality of the room,...

The hotel is well situated, in the center near Gran Via and Plaza Espana. Rooms are spacious, I had two small rooms (one with bed and one with sitting area). Bank was not clean and the door was difficult to close: once when the room was cleaned I came back and found the door to my room open. Cleaning is... More

We were on a bussines trip in may this year. Location is almost perfect for lurking around and shoping. Staff is Ok, rooms are spacy, cleaning is OK. Breakfast average. I think its not suitable for children.

This is a nicely kept hotel in a location perfect for sight-seeing. The front desk staff are very friendly and efficient. They are proficient in English and Spanish and very helpful, even when we moved rooms twice due to changes in the number of people in our party. The breakfast was varied and tasty. The only fuss is that they... More

The hotel is centrally located and the conditions of the room are of 4 stars. We had a beautiful room with view. The room was clean and spacious. The location is in downtown Madrid, near to Grand Via and Palacio Real. I will come back to this Hotel, next time I'll come to Madrid.

this hotel is of a very poor standard, definitely no way near 4 stars - our room was dirty and shabby. The staff, however, are very nice and the location is great, but you could get much better in the same area!!

The hotel is centrally located, near Gran Via. Very safe feeling in the neighborhood and actually most part of Madrid where tourists walk. You see a lot of policemen walking around. The room was clean and spacious (we got 3 beds for a double) and free wi-fi working very well. Although overlooking the street, it was not noisy. The staff... More

I looked at the pictures of the hotel at their webpage before the trip but the hotel looked much better on the picures then in real life. The room was ok but on my room there was no remote for the tv and the air condition did not work. The bed was really stiff.

I have stayed in this Hotel when I attend the FITUR fair, it is near the Gran Via, without the noise and bustling of that Avenue, and the rooms I have always received very roomy and with space to sit and work and another room as bedroom. Heating is always excellent, but now when I was in summer the AC... More
