“Ended Up Here By Mistake”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had 4 nights booked in Madrid to finish our vacation. Marriott booked us into a hotel that was supposed to be near the old town area. This is where we ended up based upon their suggestion. It is no where near the old town. The hotel is rated a 4 star hotel but is more like a 2.5 - 3 star. Old rooms in a dodgy area. The "views" are not desirable. The saving grace is that the hotel manager help fix the situation and get us into the right Marriott.

If you are on vacation, I would not suggest this hotel

I like AC hotels in general and this one in particular. In the Marriott universe the AC hotels (which joined the group a year ago or so) are no-nonsense hotels with modern designed rooms (dark wood furniture, wooden floors) approximately at the level of a Courtyard, but in my view preferable.

In my few trips I had no issues with the rooms, I received status-driven upgrades to rooms, which did not have any noise issues.

The bed is good, a bit firmer than usually with Marriotts, but comfortable. Bathroom is reasonably sized and nice.

The minibar is (other than last year) not free any more, but priced fairly.

Breakfast was included in my rate. It is good, but a bit basic. I recommend to avoid the "industrial" scrambled eggs. Coffee is powered by Nespresso. A nice touch.

Overall I clearly recommend the hotel. It's not glitzy, it is actually very utilitarian. But it is in a charming way.

Room Tip: rooms in the numbers area of x02 to x18 should not have noise issues.

I use this hotel when I am on business trip in Madrid. It is not in the center, but it is well connected, the subway station of Cartagena is practically out of the door, and the Avenida de America station, cross-way to all the main lines, is just a few meters away. The hotel is well maintained with nice and clean rooms. Personnel is friendly. Unlike other Marriott hotels, there is no lounge.

Room Tip: Although it is not on the the main road, a front room can be noisy. You better ask for a side or bac...

I stayed in this hotel for three nights. The breakfast was average, little hot food. The service was ok. The bed was excellent. I had a room above the reception facing the street. Lots of noise from street cleaners, cars, garbage-cans ++. The room was clean. Lots of hot water and a good standard. No safe in the room.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the streets.

Stayed here for a Business trip. It started well, Reception were very helpful and friendly and the rooms were clean, however if you are looking for a good night sleep, don't stay here! The roads surrounding the hotel are so noisy throughout the night that none of our group slept well the entire stay. The windows unfortunately do not block out any noise so cars, car horns, bin men and people can all be heard even on the fourth floor!! The room service was also shocking, my salad was so bad I actually left the entire thing (how can you muck up a salad)?? and it remains the only hotel where I was seated for breakfast at a dirty table with no attempt to clear it before I sat down. For such a beautiful city, there are many other hotels - do not stay here and be left with disappointing memories of beautiful Madrid!

Business Hotel with No business center to even print or make copies or even a PC. So its a good stop over hotel. Used this hotel as a stop over when flying out of Madrid to US. Good location near the end of highway to airport, Walking distance to Subway if you need to go to city. But tough to locate when driving and the hotel parking is really tight/narrow to drive down and park. Breakfast was really good. Rooms were excellent, good beds for a best night sleep and shower a large size hardwood floor room, sofa and a work center. No noise from outside. The room I had stayed even had a private balcony. Wireless issues existed when i stayed, maybe from for my room - but other than that was a great hotel. Reception staff speak English.

Room Tip: Ones back of the hotel facing the small no traffic street.

This is a very nice hotel, but it is rather far away from the central tourist district. There is a bus a half block from the hotel that goes there though, so it is fine. The hotel is clean, modern, and quiet. It does not feel like a standard Marriott. The staff is helpful. Overall I'm glad I stayed there.
