“Nice holiday in Madrid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

It is a very friendly place to stay in.The location is excellent, everything is very close to the hotel. Besides, we suggest to go up to the terrace even in winter time. The lobby is very friendly, too

Stayed here for a weekend break. Hotel was perfect for what we wanted - the area in front of reception was comfortable but a small bar would have made it complete. Have no worries that you are staying in the red light district - no one will bother you and it's quite safe

I stayed at the Praktik Metropole for 1 night in March 2012. It's on Gran Via and next to a Metro station so basically centrally located. You can walk to places like Sol and Plaza Mayor. The price was very reasonable and the room was clean. The building houses different hotels, and reception is on the second floor.

The only problem was that the bathroom smelled like sewer. I opened the windows to let the air out and the odor was gone when I returned a few hours later. Aside from that, the hotel was a good value for the money. I would stay here again.

The location is absolutely spot on! shopping, cafes, metro, sight seeing... everything! very central. We had the Gran Via conner room. Loved it! The staff are fantastic ...so helpful and friendly.
The only thing is that in the room they didn't have luggage racks and they didn't refill our shampoo and shower gel.
All in all a great place to stay ...would definitely recommend this hotel and if I go back to Madrid I will be staying here again!

Room Tip: Gran Via corner room is great. Bigger than the other rooms and much spacious. Good views and balcony

This could have been much higher rated but for the bad experience leaving. When asking for a wake up call was asked if I wanted a cab called to go to the airport. I accepted. Luggage was loaded quickly and only then did I see the cab was unmetered. Thought there was no time to unload and find another cab. Cost $40 to airport. Getting there from airport in metered cab cost $32 and on Columbus Day making us take many detours at closed roads. Also before we left cabbie went to talk to reception-odd. I suspect some kind of connection.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for taking some time to share your experience with us.
We are at the same time a little bit surprised after reading these comments, because you did not say anything about the hotel, room, your stay...
On the other hand because the normal rate from/to the airport is around $40-45, which is 30-35€. I include a text taken from our website: ((TAXI:The drive from the airport to the city centre takes about 30 minutes.It cost around 30-40€ (Depending on traffic) The Radio Taxi Madrid cab company accepts all credit cards and takes reservations.))
An also if you book a taxi, the metter starts to count before arriving to the hotel, and this has a cost of 2-3€.
And finally just to let our guests to know it, we work always with the same taxi company, we know the taxi drivers, and often the same driver come to transfer different guest during the day. Then you are right!! We have a connection. But a safety connection to avoid that taxi drivers charge more to our guest. But always we give the clients the chance to choose. You can book a taxi, or you can take it in the street.

Please contact me personally as I think you should take off this review, because always is better to book a taxi at front desk to avoid any kind of problem. And do not consider these comments as a good suggestion for other guests.

We hope that apart from this you enjoyed during your stay.
Kindest regards

Hotel Praktik is centrally located ( at the end of a pedestrian street -- ask taxi to drop you near Gran Via Subway which is adjacent to entrance of hotel - that way you do not have to walk up the street with your luggage). Clean, comfortable hotel - simple and functional rooms - the location is perfect. If you want a large room - this is not the hotel for you. Wonderful front office staff - cheerful and very helpful. They have computers available in the lobby

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony - even though it faces the street - not noisy since pedestrian street

We loved the hotel and will stay again. The staff was always helpful and the room well appointed. The rooftop lounge was great for relaxing and enjoying the Spanish sun. The location is great and very close to the subway and restaurants all around. The door to the bathroom in the room was a little odd since it's not a solid door.
