I found the Holiday Inn to be a decent hotel at a good price. The Holiday Inn has one of the lowest prices we found for2012 New Year's weekend in Madrid. It is listed as a 4 star hotel, but I think it is more like 3 stars. The front desk personnel were very pleasant, some speak more better english than others, but we were able to check in easily. The lobby is well decorated and looks very nice. The rooms are standard, but very clean. The room has most of the basics, but is missing some essential items, like a room safe, iron, ironing board and wash cloths. This was not a horrible problem, but is nice when these items are in the room. Our room faced the street and we did not have any problems with noise or not being able to sleep. The hotel has a wonderful Thai massage place next door, which I highly recommend. The hotel has a starbucks, TGI Friday's and Geno's restaurants right outside the main entrance. The mall is about 5 minutes walking distance away with lots of stores - Mango, El corte ingles, H&M, etc.... Around the corner is the stadium, about a 5 minute walk, where the Real Madrid plays and they do tours. The hotel is a bit of a distance from the major tourist attractions. It is about a 10 - 15 minute taxi ride, depending on traffic, to the Prado museum and cost 12 euro. It was pretty much the same time and price to reach Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. They have a very nice gym facility on the 10th floor, the jacuzzi was out of order, but have male and female sauna's in each changing room. There is not spectacular about the hotel and amenties, but it is a nice place to stay if you will be out of the room all day.
