This hotel is located just minutes from shops, restaurants, etc. Everything you could want to do is located all around this place. The hotel itself was fantastic. The rooms were BIG. Not just by European standards. They were just BIG in general. Immaculately clean as well. I loved the fact that the drinks in the mini bar were included in the price of the room. That way at the end of a day's worth of site seeing when you finally slowed down to realize you might be parched, you weren't paying 7$ (well, actually Euro) for a 2Euro bottle of water. It was one of the small touches that made this place amazing. The staff was friendly and very helpful. It was such a joy to stay here that we will make sure to book a room here if we are ever in Madrid again.
