Maybe my expectations were too high after reading all of the fantastic reviews here, but I am not sure why this is in the top 3 of all hotels in Madrid. The location is great and the service is very good - they were helpful with all requests and let me keep the room longer that the normal time on the check-out day. They also had free water and sodas in the minibar, which was a nive touch, and well funtioning Wi-Fi. Other than that - the breakfast was quite average, rooms nice but quite small and nothing special. If you are looking for a centrally located hotell for a weekend of tourism I see no reason not to choose this hotel. However, I am sure you will find other alternatives at the same price that are just as nice.
