This hotel has a superb location for a visit to Madrid. It is within walking distance to many of the major tourist attractions and over a hundred bars and restaurants. It is right next door to the more expensive Westin Palace Hotel.
My wife and I had a junior suite which had a separate bedroom and a sunken living room area. The floors throughout the suite were laminated hardwood. There was a door that opened from the living room on to a tiny balcony. The bathroom was nice with two separate sinks. There was plenty of storage areas to unpack our suitcases. The air conditioning functioned very well. The hotel maid did a fine job and turned down the bed daily in the evening.
The concierge(s) did a wonderful job for us. They spoke perfect English and were very helpful recommending dinner spots, various attractions and train schedules. They were above my expectations.
The Prado Museum is about two blocks away. The Santa Ana Plaza is about two blocks down the side street of Prado.
We did not use the bar or restaurant facilities on site as there were so many excellent choices nearby and we greatly prefer dining and drinking at the numerous outside cafes, bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.
