The sleep quality was bad - as the room temperature was far too hot and the only way of getting it cooler was to open the window. Not often a problem - but outside my window was 8 lanes of traffic that only quietened down between midnight and 4am. Even with ear plugs 4 hours was the max that I... More

I chose this hotel because they offer double rooms for single use at a very reasonable rate. The rooms were lovely , my bathroom was big and had everything I needed. The metro is steps away and you are not too far from the centre of Madrid, on a Sunday you are beside Retiro for a walk. If I went... More

After reading the reviews and checking out the website I was a little disappointed with our hotel. I wasn't thrilled with the location but the metro is a few blocks away, so that was a big plus. The service was not the best, for example we requested an iron which only arrived an hour later after three phone calls and... More

This hotel hotel has been continually updated and revamped since its construction c 1970. The rooms are well appointed and I found the bed to be delightful, despite the previous reviewer's comments. It is a bit out of the city center, north of Retiro, but the Metro stop is quite close.
