Stayed here with my wife in July. This is a great hotel, the staff were uniformly friendly (and thankfully spoke good English). The hotel is beautiful; our room was really comfortable and while it wasn't large (although the bed was) it came with a nice balcony area. The shower was also amazingly powerful. The hotel provides free snacks every day - pasta salads, salads, desserts and drinks etc - the alcoholic drinks, like most places in Madrid- were very reasonable. The location is great- an easy 5 min stroll from the Prada museum, the Plaza Mayor and the nearest Metro station. The hotel is surrounded by great places to eat and drink and we really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay here again; great value stay all round.
