Am I alone in being shunted into a small over-priced single in this hotel? No, because there were other guests complaining at reception as well.. Breakfast is the only redeeming feature. Reception being at sub-street level and requiring a lift to descend or schlepping a heavy bag is not great.. hall carpets with stains... understaffed main desk at checkout times..

The hotel is in a very good location, but the rooms are outdated, poor decoration and the madeup services are not so good. When you arrive at the hotel and see the Reception, you stay with a perception of the hotel but when you to the room is a completely deception.

I found the hotel very well located in the city with the use of Madrid underground being near to Calleo. However it could be a bit noisy for families. The bed(single) was clean and very presentable. Reception staff were very helpful. The breakfast was very good.All in all worth the money.

Breakfast is o.k. for its value. The locker in the room is not free - one use (open/close) costs 1 euro. The location - perfect for walking in city's center and night life. Not convenient location of reception - in base ground floor. The hotel is old and needs some amendments, but the room value is adequate. Very close to... More

The hotel is located in the well known street gran via, few minutes walking to puerta del sol and cibeles, the staff are not very helpful and friendly, the room is small, the cleanliness is good, and the breakfast is fine.

Clean rooms, not so friendly (men) staff, the ladies were very pleasant. Steps go downstairs to the reception, nobody comes to help with cases. Lifts goes only to room floor levels. Very good breakfast. Many restaurants nearby.

Rex Hotel is on Gran Via, next to everything really.. The price of the room given the location is unbeatable. I don't think the room was any less good than the room of another hotel we had booked 2 years ago on Gran Via where the price was double or more.. The room was spacious and clean, with a flat...

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