My mum and myself stayed here for two nights. Our flight was delayed into Madrid so with a quick email we were able to organise our check in for the early hours of the next morning. The room was huge and the staff were lovely. Breakfast was a good range each morning and the coffee was great. The apartments are... More

Stayed in Room 12 which was on the 3rd floor of the building next door - Number 6. It was huge and comfortably had room for 3 of us. The breakfast was lovely, the receptionist was friendly, the wifi worked, the hotel couldn't be any more central. Totally recommend it!!

I had to cancel my booking 2.5 days in advance and the Apartamentos En Busca del Tiempo didn't accept this and still charged me, although their cancellation policy said just 2 days (48hours before check-in time). They refused any dialogue and refund, claiming they are right and I broke the terms. I e-mailed the hotel again a month later, hoping... More

Ten minute walk to the Palace and the main department stores and fifteen minute walk to the Prado. Restaurants, cafés and bars all around. The room I occupied was an inside one and... More

We were really pleased with the location of this apartment. It's a basic room with basic kitchen equipment. As other reviews have mentioned before it is a dark room(dark paint) but nothing a few lights couldn't improve. The breakfast is ok. The housekeeping staff were the most helpful and lovely girls i have every come across. You are surrounded by... More

Stayed there for a weekend in mid November. Girl at the desk was helpful and willing to arrange, upon request, a second day switch to a brighter room, facing a narrow pedestrian street. Location seems safe and quiet, regarding its central lcation. Excellent for sightseeing, as most of the places of interest can be reached on foot. Metro station Puerta... More

Great location in a very lively area of the city. Easy walk from Sol and transport links. We booked an upgraded room which was windowless and airless with no kitchenette facilities save a fridge. The rooms are called apartments a misnomer in the first room we were given. The room was however clean and very quiet. The walls are a... More

We were a family of three (parents, teen son) and found our triple room spacious enough, clean, comfortable, with a small balcony overlooking the lively alley with cafes/tapas bars. Minimal noise from the street, thanks to the coated glass door. Air conditioning stood up well to the hot July weather. Bathroom was clean, stocked with thick towels, soap, shampoo, lotion,... More

I went to Madrid to celebrate a special event with my wife and I decided for this hotel as it is exactly in the center!! I confirm the position is perfect!! Close to everything! The courtesy of hotel assistant also very cosy. The only sadness is the room! They have few rooms with front view and all the little rest... More
