Beautiful hotel in an old building. King size bed is a treat (if you travel much in Europe, you know this) and the room was large. Nice bathroom with all amenities. We even had a small balcony - couldn't do anything more than stand there, but it was a nice touch. Be sure and go to the rooftop - stunning... More

Great location and friendly staff. Just check in. Beds are on wheels and move all over the place. Very uncomfortable. They're like bed in a camp. Shame cause everything else is ok. I asked staff to change the room hoping that other room types might have real bed but I was told all rooms have same beds. Even an upgrade... More

Las Letras is ideally located in the centre of Madrid. From there, you can join any of the diversified parts of the city with a taxi, at a minimal cost, or by foot providing a minimum of endurance. Rooms are rather large in an old building which was renovated. Some have large terraces on floors 5 and 6. The furniture... More

We stayed two days in Madrid on our way back home. We selected Hotel de las Letras based on its good location right on Gran Via and on its Small Leading Hotels (SLH) of the World membership. We had a large superior room on the top floor (6th), with great views. The bathroom and dressing area were downstairs and the... More

Javier was terrific. In fact everyone at the front desk made things easy for me and were very pleasant. Room nice, bathtub excellent and mattress a bit hard but that is not very important. Thank you for being so nice. Finally I wish more places were open for breakfast early but that apparently is not customary in Spain. Love the... More

A beautifully renovated historic property in the heart of Madrid, Hotel De las Letras is a boutique hotel located right on majestic Gran Via, perfectly located for museums along Paseo del Prado, shopping in Salamanca, restaurants and nightlife in Chueca, and other significant sights and landmarks in the Old City. We did not require taxis or the subway, as we... More

Hotel de las Letras, housed in a beautiful building, is situated in an excellent location on the busy Gran Via main artery through Madrid. Our room was very clean, well appointed and it also benefited from a very nice balcony overlooking the Gran Via. We had no issues with noise from the road or other guests, even at the weekend....

very good hotel with a nice service, clean big rooms, superior rooms are very good and also if you go with your partner and its a nice weather its worth to pay more for a room with jazcuzzi. Room service is quiet, walls are thick, very nice bathrooms. Location is also amazing in the center of everything.

Everything was over the expectations. the receptionists always ready to help, rooms are so clean and have all the amenities you can imagine. But the star is breakfast for sure! Various and rich, the nespresso machines at disposal, fruit, sandwiches, cold cuts and juices in a pure wood and natural forniture ambience.
