I was in Madrid for FITUR, so this hotel seemed relatively close to the Feria and also the airport...probably first mistake. The roads in Madrid are maze like, and not matter which way the (cowboy) taxi drivers went, it seemed to take quite some time! And it's certainly not close to town (we cabbed it over to Puerto del Sol, which took a while - traffic was horrendous though).
The hotel itself. On a bit of a shady stretch of road, it looks OK from the outside, with a nice entrance and reception area. Once checked in I headed up to the room - there was maintenance being done in the corridor (painting I think) and the guys looked annoyed that I was passing them by! The room was OKish, certainly not to a 4* standard. Twin beds, not very comfortable, with a thin sheet and itchy blanket. Bathroom was nice enough, with a good section of things to use: toothbrush, toothpaste, comb etc. The night's sleep was pretty poor. As mentioned, the bed wasn't the softest. I was also overlooking the main road, and there didn't seem to be any double glazing! Helicopters, sirens, rubbish/trash vehicles and traffic kept me awake from 5ish...I forgot that I read on here to ask for a room at the back of the hotel!
Breakfast had to be pre-booked, with a charge of €8...I have no idea why it has to be pre-booked...there was plenty of spare tables and it was a buffet!
Oh yeah - there's no iron or ironing board in the room. I had to get an iron from reception - I got the feeling it was the only iron in the place (no board offered) and had to give it back as soon as I was done.
Overall...nice enough on the eyes, not so nice on the sleeping eyes. Not a 4*, but we did get a good enough price on it.
