Rooms are very clean modern decorated. Breakfast... More

The hotel is in great position- on the la gran via.the room was very good- comfortable and clean.the breakfast was a bit difficult to the ones who eats kosher only and it was better to eat outside (there are a lot of nice breakfast resturants around - such as dunkin coffee or a resturant that looked from the 50's.

hotel is situated right in the center of Madrid in one of the most important streets named Gran Via; perfect for those who want to go to all the theatres to watch the various shows.

Pro: location; everything is almost within walking distance Con: very noisy, dark room; bathroom is outdated as well as the towels; wifi connection extremely poor; reception is on -1 and you have to carry your luggage all the way down by using the stairs. You can get to your room only by using the lift which is on -1.

The location couldnt be better. You can choose at least 03 subways stations pretty new to the hotel. It is new to the main turistic points in the downtown. The breaskfast is also very good with different options of breads, cheeses, with tortilla de patatas!

This hotel offers air conditioning in all rooms. I was there in April and there was no air/cond. (a/a) available. There is no lift from the entrance to the reception in the cellar and there is no personal to help you carry your bags up & down the stairs. I was charged 45 EUR for using the telephone to call...

Excellent location in the center, everything can be reached on foot, noisy however although at the 7th floor. Very nice breakfast, great variety, clean rooms but old and poor in supplies (no trash bin in the bathroom..) Needs restoration but again the location is all you go for.

I really enjoyed my staying at Rex hotel. Its location is perfect, the room was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent. I definitely recommend it. It is a good choice for solo travelers, families or couples.
