Thankfully ours was only a one night stay. The situation is good, the beds were quite comfortable and the breakfast was ok. But the hygiene left a lot to be desired ( when we arrived and needed to use the loo, there was some faeces on the toilet seat. It was disgusting. We immediately complained and they cleaned the bathroom... More

Good value for money but lacks atmosphere. Rooms very basic, it almost seems like some of the furniture was missing and that is coming from a gal who hates clutter. Luke warm water in the shower for the first five minutes, the staff at breakfast couldn't look more disinterested... That being said for a budget hotel it wasn't bad.

Breakfast is decent and tasty. No noise whatsoever. You can sleep safe and sound there. Internet is tremendous although it does not reach the rooms, just the lobby. The staff is competent and friendly. The receptionist can also speak english a bit. The bathrooms are shining with cleanliness. There's a vending machine also. Lobby is cozy at night.

I stayed for three nights while visiting Madrid with my mother. It is close to metro stops, restaurants, Corte Ingles, and coffee shops. The place is very clean and comfy, the staff is helpful and attentive. You'll get rest at night because there aren't any bars around.

I had cause to use this hotel as my normal apartment could not be used due to decoration. This hotel is on the upper floors of a residential building excellently situated close Madrid centre and various Metro and bus routes. Access to/from airport is relatively painless with one change. Rooms basically decorated and furnished but that is reflected in the... More

Went here with a group of students twice. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. Located in a nice area and close to public transportation. It's not a luxurious hotel by any means, but if you're looking for a place that is clean and reasonably priced, I'd recommend it. The only complaint I'd have... More

This place was clean and inexpensive. Location was good too. All in all a good value for the money and perfect for someone who likes a simple functional and clean room.

Sounds like a bit of a paradox, doesn't it? What I mean is that the hotel is located in a lovely business and upscale residential neighborhood. However, it is two blocks from a metro station which can get you to all tourist locations within minutes. We had the good fortune of recommendations of restaurants in the neighborhood, one of which... More

Excellent service by all staff we met. Room had everything that we needed for a 1 night stop and was clean and comfortable. Hot and cold drinks machine was also provided in the Salon area. The hotel was in a perfect position to be able to walk out to whatever we needed. Plenty to do and see in this area... More

Good location in Madrid. Staff very friendly and helpfully. Rooms are shoebox sized with very thin walls and small TV with no English channels. Fine if you only need a night and do not plan to stay in the room long.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
