“A great location for Madrid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

TRYP Ambassador was clean and comfortable a minutes walk to the Opera house, 2 mins to the Palace and 5 mins from everywhere. We'd stay there again for the convenience. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Book a taxi back to the airport through them so you don't get ripped off like we did. Taxis from the airport add about 14euros surcharge, then an extra 7 or 8 per bag. so 30 turned into 50euros!
I also thoroughly recommend the Tapas tour and the Segway tour but book those online before you go. Do the segway tour as soon as possible so you can see the area you'd like to visit after. We went everywhere :-) Take gloves as your hands get chilly.

In general the hotel is OK. Good location, large rooms, friendly staff. However the hotel is becoming old and more important it becomes a bit "tired". Old funiture, carpets, otdated bathrooms and so on. Make sure not to book a room at the front (street) side of the hotel. It is noisy and the window isolation is also.... old!

Nice hotel, good location. Thou hotel is old but they were pretty well maintained. The room had good ventilation and within walking distance to shopping, attractions and restaurants.
Bathrooms not very big but of decent size with all the amenities.

Room Tip: Recommend visitors to stay there for convenience. Buffet breakfast spread is good too

Old time Europe, piped in music, ambiance and grace. OK, so the rooms and bathrooms may disappoint those seeking the latest and greatest in high tech amenities but this is a charming hotel, albeit a bit noisy. It's a step back in time located in a perfect location, well within walking range of the sites of Madrid.

Just came back from five great days in Madrid. This hotel is within walking distance of of Madrid Center. We loved our Madrid visit and will come back. Palacio Real, Opera, Plaza Mayor, Mercado San Miguel, Callao, Sol, Plaza de Espana, Gran Via, and much more within a short walk. Metro is closed by, and we used Metro often when we visited other parts of the city. Loved going to Paseo del Prado, and to see a Futbol game at Rayo Vallecano. Check out tours at Julia travel and visit Avila and Segovia. This is not a luxary Hotel , however it is a luxary location with all you need.

This room at the streetside was a little bit noisy at times the surrounded restaurants were supplied at night. Several cafe's around for breakfast.

Stayed four days at the Tryp Madrid while attending a business meeting in Madrid. Had a fabulous time and would like to thank the management for the showed hospitality. The Hotel is from the last century and you can tell that this building has history. Had a room at the top floor with view to the courtyard. The room was spacious and had everything I needed. Breakfast was great and lunch at the spotless. The lobby lounge area is chic and inviting, with daylight and well-decorated.

What I've liked most:: the very human touch of the reception staff that was always very keen to give information and help whenever needed and that really left an impression and the choice of music over the internal audio system in the room.

Overall, great location, great and welcoming service, very recommended.
