“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I too did the Cosmos 9 day trip and was in this place for the last two nights. The prior Cosmos travelers poor review weighed heavily because I too am a vegetarian.

But glad that the hotel wasn't as bad as I feared.

Pros: friendly staff, bus right in front (daytime to Sol - 20+ minutes depending on traffic), Metro a 10 minute walk, plenty of restaurants in the vicinity, supermarket and ATMs in same block, part of a residential area (which was safe even when my girlfriend and i returned around 1 am) and finally - affordable!

Cons:
1. taxis in front seem to show tourists around even when they dont ask for it (ride to Sol to Hotel Liabeny @ Sol, where I am currently staying for three days, cost euro 12 vs around 7. No traffic but the driver took us around Atocha and Prado museum, which are away from Sol. I didnt complain because i did want to see Madrid around)
2. thin walls and carpet
3. front facing rooms can hear traffic on street.

Last two are the main reasons I am giving it a 3 and not 4 star.

This was the last hotel on our 9 day Cosmos "jewels of Spain & Portugal tour and was very unsatisfactory! Although the rest of the room seemed clean, the carpet had multiple stains. Our view was a rear window overlooking hundreds of apartments and a rooftop. Our floor had multiple noisy high school tour groups. The restaurant had nothing without meat and when we declined having just salad the waiter summoned what appeared to be the restaurant manager who very bluntly told us "we don't have vegetarian food"! We left and attempted to find food in the area only to encounter a television crew video taping multiple police vehicles and an army of police who were handcuffing and taking away numerous men from a bar just a few doors away from the hotel. We didn't feel safe and went back to our room without eating. We were happy to leave the following morning and would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone. We will write to Cosmos Tours to express our dissatisfaction with their choice of Praga Hotel!

We went to Madrid to Watch Man United v Madrid and we decided to stay for a week.
The downside of this hotel is the location of it. We payed €50 from Barajas Airport to the hotel and its about 20km to centre aswel. We met a few local people and used bus just outside the hotel to town really cheap €1.5.

Very clean, good size rooms floor 1 and great wi-fi (free).

Overall good hotel apart from the location if you intend to go to places..

I was reprehensive when I saw a 4 star hotel offer rooms so cheaply, but the quality was very good.
The only downside to the rooms was the bad insulation which forced us to heat via AC which dried the air out completely.
The food in the cafeteria was of varied quality (hamburgers were good, pork chops were awful).
I have to stress that the value was amazing for the little money we paid.

We have just spent three nights in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms were lovely and everywhere was spotlessly clean, breakfast was buffet style with hot and cold choices, very good value for €10. All staff were very helpful, in a good location 10 minute walk from metro into the centre of Madrid €1,70. Would thoroughly recommend ! We all asked for an extra pillow and that was at our rooms within 10 mins.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front on the main road but because of the quality of the curtains we were oblivi...
