The hotel is patronized by many tour groups so at times it can be quite noisy, the front desk busy and the small lobby congested with guests and their luggage.
It is just out of the city centre. However bus to Plaza Mayor is at the door. Metro station is about 5 to10 minutes away. Be very vigilant however. There are many pickpockets in buses, metros and all crowded places in Madrid and other big cities. Local people warned us many times that their pickpockets are among the best of the best (in their profession). We were almost robbed when in a queue going through the turnstide of a metro station.
There are many shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and ATM machines on the street in front of the hotel. We were told that some of the ATM machines near the hotel were tempered with and consequently some travellers had their bank accounts raided recently. So as a precaution use those machines that are further away from the hotel.
The hotel is dated. There is no outstanding features to say about the hotel. Room conditions and services are just average, acceptable.
What we don't like is that it charges for the wifi service. These days we can get such service for free in many bars, restaurants and public places. Hope that some future reviewers will report that the hotel follows the practice of their competitors and makes such service free for the convenience of their guests.
