Located in a better part of Madrid than others. Near subways and main streets.GreaT breakfast. The local restaurants are incredible. They serve the best Catalonian food and are located near the hotel. I had only 2 problems both of which warrant mentioning. Double check that the in room safe is firmly connected to the wall as mine was not..lastly, The... More

I came here three years ago and the gist of my impression was great hotel but surly staff. Pleased to say all traces of surliness have now gone resulting in a great hotel. Really comfortable rooms (no bath) but a decent shower and very quiet. Breakfast for 10 Euros was very fair for what was on offer. You are not... More

I was in Madrid with colleagues on a business trip to visit a local company which has its headquarters around 1 km from the hotel. The hotel is in actual fact two buildings separated by a walkway. We arrived in the morning and were allowed an early check in which really helped. The reception staff generally understand and speak some... More

Good location, near subway and Retiro park. Safe and quiet neighbourhood. Clean comfortable rooms. Friendly and professional staff. Good daily rates for a 4 stars hotel. I will definitely suggest it and it will be my choice whenever I visit Madrid again

The hotel is situated on Calle Dr.Esquerdo, one block away to the south east of Parque Del Retiro. It is within easy walking distance of most attractions. The hotel is well laid out with restaurant, bar and lounge on the ground floor. Breakfast is self service but the evening meal is waiter service. A good choice of food is available... More

Due to 2 major events I had a very expensive stay: 322 euro per night for one person in a room. OK for a good 5 star hotel but not at all for this. The prices in "low" season are +/- 1/3 of this, which comes to a correct price/quality level.

Dear Customer, First, thank you very much for your comment. Indeed, during the last week of September we have had the hotel at 100% occupancy, so the rates have been higher due to high demand. Look forward to having you on future occasions, Yours faithfully, Lucía López Social Media Manager More

Feels like a large hotel designed to accommodate hundreds or thousands for cheap conventions. Sort of clean, but steps, hallways, etc. are in need of repair, chipped plaster and concrete, stains on carpet, hallways very dingy. Everything looks and feels cheap. Mattress not very comfortable. Says it has feather pillows in rooms, but ours didn't have any. Mirror was broken,... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times before and always been generally satisfied with the accommodations. This time I stayed for one night in a room I never would have thought existed. The hotel actually spans two separate apartment buildings which are connected by a ground level walkway. Because of the topography, the lobby of one building is one... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights en route to Malaga. It was very close to the Metro so it was a breeze to get to from the airport.
