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

I was travelling with a tour group and our bus stopped at this hotel for 3 nights. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were just rock hard. The room, bathroom and shower were nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was another story. They had a nice variety but it took forever to fill the empty serving plates. They cook... 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. The neighborhood was nice and quiet but you aren't far from the city center. If you are someone who tries to exercise on vacation this hotel is very close to... More

Our tour bus stopped at this hotel for 2 nights. The beds were a bit hard for our liking. The room was a nice size. Bathroom and shower were good size as well.

Our tour group of 35 stayed at the hotel on June 23, 2014. It is a very nice looking hotel and near the center for many sighseeing places. However, several in our group reported that the shower stall/bath floors were very slick when wet. We agree and several of us put down towels to help with the footing. Nice hotel... More

We spent about 6 nights in this hotel. The hotel is OK, we got a nice Jr suite good for 2 adults and 2 children. I have to say the room was very convenient for our family. Overall the hotel is pretty aged, the type of hotel with dark corridors with no natural light at all, but the common areas... More

Stayed for just one night at the Ayre Gran Hotel. We found it excellent for what we needed: a decent place to pass the night and close to Madrid city center. Check-in was a breeze, staff was polite and helpful. We also had the breakfast and it was great for $10 EUR p/person. There is a metro station just 2... More

Stayed on the fifth floor in the Europa building (nearest the main road). We had a very warm welcome at reception and found all of the hotel staff were great and spoke good English. They were happy to change our room on request as we wanted one a bit higher in the building. We were told that all of the... More

This hotel was very clean and the front desk staff were helpful. Easy walk to the Metro and about 10-15 minute walk to Retiro Park. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice hotel. A few local taverns across the street were a nice way to end the night.
