The room was very nice apart from the lack of a view and the small window overlooking the roof (room103) It is ideally located just off Grand Via. The breakfast was very good, served in a beautiful large room, as was the coffee/tea facilty in the lounge, the public areas were very well decorated. The lifts are tiny, so we... More

Seventh floor room was very clean and comfortable, huge double bed, with views across the city. The hotel does not have its own parking, but there is an underground car park almost next door which is discounted for hotel guests. Main attraction for us was the fact it was dog-friendly in a dog-unfriendly country. Charged 79 Euros for the night... More

This hotel is very close to Plaza Espana, the Gan Via, and next to the Royal Palace. Its is walking distance to the older part of Madrid and 30 mins on foot to the major art museums.

Highly recommend. Clean, great location (next to royal palace and public transport). Great price for what you get. Staff super friendly and helpful. No mini bar in room (so no where to chill drink bottles) but that's the only downside.

This hotel is across from The palace on a very busy street. The hotel I imagine would have been a 5 star at one point in time but the shabby carpets, the cracked wall And not great staff makes it less so.
