This is a very good hotel with excellent price compared to other hotels in the same category. Location is excellent if you want to go the museums (Prado and Reina Sofia) because it's just across Prado museum and within 10 min of Reina Sofia. It's also within a 15 min walk from Atocha train station. If you're coming from the airport, take the Express yellow bus and get off in Plaza de las Cibeles. Just walk 5 min in Paseo del Prado and you get to the hotel in Plaza Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo (or Neptune Plaza).
But despite being close to this places, it's not in the middle of Gran Via with all the shops. Nevertheless, you can easily walk to Gran Via, Puerta Del Sol and Plaza Mayor, I had no problem with that.
The room was comfortable but small. Bathorooms are clean, good size, but kind of dark with all that green marble on the walls and floor. Very nice beds. I asked for a quiet room and I got one facing the internal part of the building, so I can't say much about the noise in the street. I didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but I sthink I should have because there was nothing good in the near the hotel... the only complain I have is that they offered free wifi only in the lobby...if you want internet in the room, you have to pay for it.
Be aware of the pickpockets in the nearest Starbucks...My friend had his iphone stollen in the very first day of our trip.
Two good tips for Madrid: we took the hop-in hop-off bus for 20 Euros. It's ok, but I had seen everything on foot the day before. Nevertheless, you can use the same ticket to get the last bus of the day and see Madrid at night. This was very nice!
The other good tip is to have lunch at Mercado San Miguel next to Plaza mayor.
