This hotel is in a great location, down the block to puerta del sol which has a lot of restaurants and close to metro and train. The room is very modern, however it is pretty small and the elevator is slow. Luckily I eat a lot so I don't mind the extra exercise and use the stairs. With all that... More

This hotel is right in the heart of madrid in one of the main shopping streets. The rooms were large considering its location and nicely decorated. The rooms were clean overal, but as a small sidenote it could use an update since some things are broken etc. All in all, the perfect hotel for a city trip on a budget!

Came recently to Madrid for a weekend with friends and stayed in the Hotel. The best of it was its location, at walking distance from Sol which is right in the centre of Madrid. I was a bit scared though when arrived as it is right in front of a popular disco (Joy Eslava) so I was expecting a noisy... More

The hotel is situated in a pedestrian street very close to the Puerta del Sol subway station, making it extremely easy to get to all the landmarks, even by foot!! The rooms have very modern decor, with blackout curtains to sleep in until late and shower panels for a nice steamy shower. The breakfast was great, with a large selection... More

This hotel is so centrally located it would be difficult to find somewhere to match it for value and location. I's situated on Calle de Arenal, right between Sol and Opera metro stations. The service was efficient and friendly, and we had no issues at all. Our room was lovely: clean, comfortable and large enough, with a balcony right over... More

Only thing hi-tech was the steel and glass!!! Most uncomfortable bed ever slept in. My introduction to no box springs, which is common in Europe. Like sleeping on concrete floor. Lacked most of the usual room amenities most Americans hotel/motels furnish. Was clean that is the best I can say about it. Lot of outside or corridor noise. Would not... More

Came here for a long weekend with my wife and three children (8, 6 and 1) The location of the hotel is simply perfect for everything you need - bang in the middle of town opening on to the main street a short walk from the palace and a couple of squares. We had a family room with 2 single... More

The hotel is located at very busy location which can be overwhelming, especially during festive season (we were there for the new year and it was thoughtful of them to provide us with grapes for the countdown tradition and some goodies). The hotel looks very run down when one stepped in, but the room is alright. The lift is very... More

Comfy beds, clean etc. The room was kinda small (we could not open the wardrobe due to the bed being too close to the wardrobe door) but I don't really care. The price was fair, and the location was superb.
