“Dated Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stayed here because it was the recommended hotel for the Rock-n-Rock Madrid Marathon. It was ok and comfortable, but the whole property was quite dated. The location is close to the Retiro Park, but it is not very convenient to most tourist sites we wanted to visit.

The staff was very professional and friendly.

We loved the small coffee shop and cafe in front of the hotel. The ladies that work there are very friendly, and the deserts are delicious.

Good location with easy access from the airport. Walking distance from galleries and supermarket. Free wifi for half hour each day is helpful. Attentive staff, dated but clean and classic decor.

Visited here again mid-July '12 when it was very hot. The room was functional and the staff attentive as usual. Not over-impressed with the AC though, once I had found the controls (hidden behind the door into bedroom), I set them to the coolest setting but even then the room temperature did not drop below warm. The lobby is bright and airy and there are plenty of lifts so I was never waiting long for one.

Two things to note, the currency exchange in reception cannot process debit/credit cards it is cash only (though there are ATM's nearby), also if ordering a Pizza from the Telepizza in-room menu, it may be worth you while taking the 5 minute walk to collect it yourself and save 60%!

Room Tip: There does not appear to be much to differentiate the rooms I have stayed in on the previous two occ...

A fantastic hotel with great service! Also very clean.
It's not too far away from the centre. The best way to get there is by taking either the underground or the bus, walking would take about 30 minutes.
For food, you can either eat at the hotel or at a restaurant nearby. There are many places with reasonable prices and great food.
You also get half an hour per day of free internet in the Lobby, otherwise it's paying and it's quite expensive.
When I went there last year with my boyfriend in August the prices were 25 euros a night per person.

If you want to see what your really going to get. ( or at least what we got) look at the photos on this site and the green bedrooms. Also the location is poor with a decent walk to the metro. Luckily we spent 80% of our time in the city

I will recommend this hotel to friends visiting Madrid. It was superb value for money, perfectly placed in a friendly " medical" neighbourhood with its own restaurants and cafes but within one short bus trip to the centre of Madrid. It is also very close to the bus stop of the cheap and frequent airport shuttle bus
Reception and security staff were always helpful with information about sights, transport etc. And there is an El Corte Ingles very nearbye!

Stayed at the Hotel from 20th June to 22nd June (check out date). The Hotel is nice & neat. It is also located in a nice quite area. Walking distance from the Airport Bus Stop. Very Conv to goto Gran Via & other tourist attractions.Was surprised to find a nice Shopping street close by while on my walking sprees.
Vegetarian additions to their menu would be welcome.
Some of the Hotel Staff are warm & friendly but some do need to be friendlier rather than rude !!
All in all a nice Hotel but a bit of Room(splly the Bathroom) upkeep would be welcome as maintanence is required even though the Housekeeping staff do seem very good as they keep the Room & Bathrooms very clean !!

Room Tip: Ask them for a Room with a view
