Well past its expiry date, the hotel is in a great location, close to shops and many great areas. The hotels is dated, clearly there is an opportunity to upgrade the hotel. The décor is nice 1960’s, all has the wear of time. The morning breakfast buffet requires that you arrive early as soon as it is set up, otherwise... More

Voy a escribir el resto de la reseña en ingles para que los del extranjero también puedan entender y espero que la dirección tome MUY EN SERIO mis comentarios. This hotel is located centrally and is surrounded by wonderful eateries. However, the hotel surely does not do justice to the name of the great Spanish artist. Neither the phone nor... More

Fantastic entrance referring to its former grandeur, lots of copper and marble , a gin-bar, a restaurant and a well stocked breakfast buffet. So depending on the room rate you might have a good deal (we paid 120 euros for 3 pax in appartment room). But not everything is functioning as it should. Airco did not work, very small elevators...

Staff fully absorbed by their own stuff, not helpful at all. Room service and restaurant personnel do not speak English: I had to match two menus myself to get what I want. Rubbish and old furniture , rather dirty. The only points I like: breakfast & location.

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
