And they all thank me for the tip because the relation price/quality is excelllent.This time I stayed for a weekend and I got an upgrade for a very small amount of money although I already had a promotion that included breakfast.

If there is one overriding factor, above all else, that determines whether a hotel is worth it's weight... It's the quality of sleep. At this hotel I didn't sleep. Dragging tables, chairs, other items of furniture over solid floors at 4am is unfair and unfriendly, especially when it's the staff who are doing it. The whole place reminded me of... More

This is a place where you are likely to bump into celebrities, politicians and stars even if you stop by for a great haircut or your favorite drink. The property itself needs maintenance as it is an old building but the wonderful staff more than makes up for that. The Reception people, the bar staff, waiters et al are just... More

We broke up our trip from Germany to Andalucia with a 2-day stay in Madrid. We tried this hotel for the first time and were really impressed. The staff were really friendly to us and even let our daughter play the piano! (unthinkable in Germany). We had a triple room which was really quiet as it faced the inner courtyard... More

We spent a few nights at the Wellington Hotel in Madrid beginning of July and thought we might try the Gran Velazquez on the same street on our way back through Madrid end of July. Big mistake. The 2 rooms I had reserved in this supposed 4 star hotel in the elegant Salamanca district were the shabbiest I have seen... More

Rooms are great, clean and tidy. Lifts are one flight up but hey get a life the concierge helps overcome that obstacle. Reception staff greet you with a smile which lasted the whole time I was there. The first of three nights, room service was great. Second morning I did not receive room service breakfast. Found the order hanging from... More

Stayed here for a business meeting in June 2013. Very nice hotel...lovely rooms...clean and quiet. Nicely located near Retiro park, and the Castlelano area is classy. Good/expensive shopping, and restaurants. The elevator is located up a flight of stairs, which is inconvenient with luggage. Also, there are single steps up/down in the hotel which are easy to miss.

I have read some damning reviews but I cannot agree. There are a couple of obvious problems, however. First, the elevator begins one flight up, up a narrow staircase, so you must be in good shape or have some help dragging bags up to the elevator. Second, it looks like there are few rooms with outside views, and these cost... More

First of all it was the first and last time I make a reservation through booking.com. The site proposed an exceptional offer. After making the booking, in the evening I went on the hotel website and I saw a lower price for the room I booked. I contacted both, hotel and booking, which, instead of answering with a justification, changed... More

If you not very choosy and do not like spend all the time in the hotel room but like your hotel in walking distance from the most attractive places in Madrid, you would better choose this hotel. It is only 10 minutes walking distance from great park and Prado Museum, and about 30 minutes from Real Palace. Moreover there is... More
