Previous reviews have said it all - well located, clean, good value, great breakfast. Plaza Mayor is about a 10 minute walk and the rest of central Madrid is fairly close. I would recommend the area around Plaza Mayor for eating as the places near the hotel are pretty unremarkable.

Well situated in the centre of Madrid, only ten minutes walk from the plaza Mayor and 30 minutes walk from the station. Good sized room with gratis wifi. Excellent buffet breakfast. Bar but no restaurant, understandable as there are enough places within a short walk from restaurant to tapas bar to sushi bar to suit every taste and wallet.

Great location for a citytrip. Close to an area with lots of (good) tapasbars and restaurants. Metro is nearby. Breakfast is a sumptuous buffet! The rooms are, though not specially charming, very clean.

My partner and I had a 3 night stay. The hotel was clean and the rooms spacious. We included breakfast in our package and that was well worth the money, a great way to start your day. The hotel being centrally located to the centre of Madrid was a brilliant base for a short city break. Would have no hesitation... More

I spent three nights on a business trip in this hotel. The room was o.k., clean and nothing special. As usual in Madrid there was no real heating in the room, but you can turn on the aircon to make hot air. The location of the hotel is really good, the historical centre is only at a few minutes walking... More

Hotel Ganivet is located in a great part of Madrid. We didn't really need to get the metro at all as it's only a 10 minute walk from the centre of the city. The rooms were comfortable and clean with TV, Wifi access and a safe. The hotel bar was reasonably priced and the waiters gave complimentary tapas with drinks.... More

Great hotel, staff friendly, rooms clean, bed comfortable, good selection of food for breakfast - everything you could ask for for a good comfortable stay. Also very reasonable room prices, although we stayed in February so possibly cheaper time of year. Best advantage to this hotel is the location. A few minutes walk from the metro, so easily reached from... More

Myself, husband and 12 year old son stayed here for 3 nights! We caught the metro from the airport really straightforward and then it was a 2 min walk from the metro to the hotel. Check in really quick and simple. Rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable! Had a bath with a shower over and the beds were... More

First of all i would like to say thanks to the hotel staff for being so nice, they were happy to help me (someone who had lots of questions). The room was of good size and great quality. Everything is in walking distance, and the things that aren't can be easily reached at the nearby Puerta de Toledo metro station.... More
