The Alicia is a nice hotel very central for all things in Madrid. It has a unique style, rather quirky perhaps, but enjoyable. It does not have many facilities, but the staff are all english speaking and very polite and helpful. The trademark of the Room-Mate hotel group is an apple by each bedside every day and they were very nice, too!
There is a small lobby with some seating and breakfast is served in the attached Tapas restaurant from 7-30am weekdays and 8-00am weekends and holidays. You literally step outside from one entrance to the very next. Breakfasts were an acceptable buffet and you can have as much as you want.
The hotel is equidistant to three metro stations, Anton Martin, Sol and Sevilla. Each is about 5 minutes walk - Sevilla is a slighly more direct route to the hotel than the other two.
The hotel is on the corner of Plaza Santa Ana, a pleasant and busy little square and almost next door to the Teatro Espanol which is also on the square.
The outer rooms overlooking the square can be a litle noisy with much coming and going into the early hours - this is likely to be the case with any room overlooking the street.
There is good shopping around the Sol metro station and the Plaza Puerto del Sol. A little further on is the theatre land of Grand Via. There are many restaurants and small grocery shops in the vicinity of the hotel. The main museums such as the Prada, Thyssen, Reina Sofia are all about ten minutes walk away - the Royal Palace is about the same distance in the opposite direction.
A nice hotel that we would readily recommend to anyone planning to visit Madrid.
