“Very functional suite, great location and management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This is a great suite hotel in a great location. We have very few complaints and suggestions. The location is wonderful for walking, shopping, dining, and only 2 short blocks to metro station to take you straight to the scenic areas like the Prado. The street is quiet and the small balconies are wonderful for surveying the local scene. Air conditioning units are only in living room and master bedroom but worked well. If sleeping in second bedroom, it will be warmer and will need to open window (no screens) or borrow a fan. Air conditioning unit should really be installed in that room because Madrid can get very hot in the summer. Couch does not fold down like a sofa bed but is very comfortable for extra sleeping space. Wireless internet and hot water did not work initially which was a hassle but staff were very responsive in fixing them. The office is not manned 24 hours a day however. Bathtub/shower is very slippery and there are no hand holds, so a hand rail should be installed for safety. Management provided verbally and in a list restaurant recommendations. The Parallel which is only a few blocks away was superb for tapas, desserts, and patio dining. Addresses should be added to the restaurant list.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We highly recommend these apartments—you get so much more space for the same price as a regular hotel room with no need to worry about going out to find breakfast (you get a spacious kitchen with a full-size fridge, stove, dishwasher and washing machine), vacating the room so cleaners can get in, etc. And, if you want the room cleaned in the middle of your stay, you only have to pay about €30 (if I recall correctly). The apartment building is centrally located, but in a non-touristy area. That means that local shops, with the exception of the small Dia Supermarket, close at 2pm on the dot and don’t open till 5 or later. You are however no more than a 30 minute walk from most of the capital and there is much to see. It can get noisy outside on Friday and Saturday nights, but the main bedroom is at the back of the building and the apartments themselves have double or triple glazed windows and the front rooms have very thick shutters on the balcony doors and air conditioning, all of which blocks out the noise. Our bedroom faced an inner courtyard and so was also not noisy. The only downside could have been that there was no A/C in the bedroom, but it was cool enough with the bedroom window open (and not too noisy, though I’d still recommend earplugs no matter where you stay in Madrid—it’s a noisy place!). There are few Radio or TV channels in English, but this isn’t a place to stay in and watch TV. The other downside was that the wi-fi in the building was pretty sporadic, but we found this to be the case everywhere we stayed in Spain. The staff were very helpful in trying to sort this out, as well as with other things we asked for help with. Bruno in particular spent a considerable time marking up a map for us with details of things to do and tips on the best times to visit. He excelled himself when on realising we had bought a few items of out of date food from the above mentioned supermarket, he offered to come to the supermarket to explain on our behalf, although we bravely settled for him writing the appropriate phrases in Spanish that achieved the right result. Don’t even think about hiring a car. Parking is very difficult, roads are narrow and local drivers unforgiving, but this is a town to be walked anyway, day or night. One tip is buy a Metro ticket. €12 for 10 trips within the city, on the Underground Metro is tremendous value and the Central Suites are well connected via the Tribunal Station to all the main tourist areas and the University area. We will definitely stay here if we ever have the pleasure of coming to Madrid again.

Room Tip: If you think you need the sofabed, make sure you get help opening it or let the staff know in advanc...

Compaired with other accommodation available we thought this excellent value. The rooms were well equipped, clean and comfortable. We visited on the weekend of the Gay pride perade and the final of the European football cup final that Spain won; we thought there would be a great deal of noise from the street but once the shutters were closed there was no noise in the apartment. Shops and a good selection of restaurants are handy and the nearest metro station is only a few min walk away.

All in all very good, the position of the apartments is very good, off a main road so quieter but not out of the way. The staff that manage them all in all are very good, and give you a good tour of the apartments and low down of the area and where to eat etc!

The apartment was well furnished ( yes it is ikea but there is nothing wrong with that? Especially in the middle of a busy city) there was 5 of us and I was sleeping on the couch/bed which was very comfy, the other 2 bedrooms were good though the smaller did not have a/c ( the lounge and the main bedroom did) though as the apartments building is old the walls are thick so does not matter too much ( it was 30C) all the time we were there. Everything was very clean and well kept, not really find any faults, there are some good restaurants and bars close by.

As stated in other posts you are close to Triubunal / Sol metros though we walked around a lot as well as nothing is too far away and you miss so much in the metro compared to walking the streets! If you are flying in form the airport I suggest using the metro much cheaper and not too much hassle.

My only gripe and the reason it did not get 5 stars is that the broadband did not work for the first 2.5 days of out stay, a little petty I know but I had to ask 3 different people for help until it was fixed which was a shame and as I wanted to Skype with my partner who could not make the holiday so quite important to me!

All in all though I would thoroughly recommend staying there and will again next time we stay.

Room Tip: we stayed in 3C and could not fault it

We spent three days in Madrid and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found the appartment cool, fairly clean with easy to use amenities. The location is great with easy access to shops, supermarket and places of interests. We would surely recommend this place and would definitely stay there again. The staff were courteous and ready to help and advise. We take this opportunity to thank Bruno and Rafael. Well done Spain and congratulations on winning Euro 2012.

we stayed here 6 nights and as everybody had said the decore is basic in the Ikea style. But also very adequate and comfortable. The apartment was spacious and had all we needed.

The location is great, 10mins walk from Sol,. Surrounded by endless nightclubs and bars close by. But quiet in the street at night, and we were on the 1st floor. Market close by for great selection of produce if you want to stay in.
