We actually stayed here twice … once at the beginning of our trip (tour with Insight Vacations) and also at the end for a couple more days in Madrid. Service & quality was exceptional both times! The courteous & friendly staff were amazing, anticipating things we might need & then making them happen. Because our final morning departure was early, they prepared “picnic” bags with amazing breakfast items. The room was very comfortable & the location was really convenient.

Hotel's Favorite
This is situated in a great place (especially if you need to go to the US embassy). Staff are very helpful and friendly. Valet service for the car is excellent - when the vehicle was delayed don the last day we were offered complementary drinks at the bar while waiting. Welcome cocktail is a nice touch (standard Barcelo I believe we had it elsewhere also). If there is a negative it was room size or perhaps that the bathroom is larger than it needs to be (bathtub is a waste of space ) leaving the bedroom feeling a bit tight.(Yes we could have booked a larger room). Also, odd for Spain, no bidet in the large bathroom.

The hotel is very well located, with nice, clean and quiet rooms. The staff is very helpful and kind. But the a/c in the room was not working properly and we couldn't adjust the temperature. During the day it was ok, but no for sleeping. That surprised us because the last time we stay there, before the pandemic, we had no problems with the a/c. We had dinner and breakfast at the roof top and had a good time there. The Covid protocols were excellent, we felt safe all the time!
