Older style hotel. Good value and great location relative to main tourist attractions in Madrid. Walking distance to Royal Palace, Plaza de Espana, Prada museum, Naval museum, Parque de el Retiro. Room was comfortable but facilities are outdated. Service was efficient.

Great hotel, great location. Its a quit walk to either Plaza Espana or Plaza Orient. Right across from the Royal Palace which is a great place to stroll about the gardens in the a.m. The Grand Via is also very close. Coffee is free and they have a restaurant that we did not try. The room was on the small...

We had a pair of double rooms with connecting door on the 5th floor with a view of the royal palace. Overall this was a very good 3 star hotel, almost worth 5/5 for its class. Positives: - Easy walking distance to all the sights to the west side of central Madrid - Rooms very clean - Staff very friendly...

The Hotel is close to most sites in Madrid. Sabitini Gardens is literally across the street. There are a few nearby restaurants and night clubs in walking distance. Very comfortable beds, the room was sufficiently spacious. Breakfast was of good value. Front desk staff were quite helpful as well.

We had 2 adjoining rooms, booked for 2 adults and 2 young children. The hotel is aging, but the the beds were comfortable, the room (on the third floor) was quiet despite being on a very busy road. Yes, we could hear cars passing, but it wasn't disruptive. It was central enough for us to see most things by foot,...

Clean rooms, friendly staff, outstanding location with nearby access to the metro. My one complaint was that our room was too hot. We tried reporting the problem but all to no avail. We ended up sleeping with the window open (December). We still had a wonderful experience but the heat issue was annoying.

The hotel is lovely with an old fashion atmosphere to it. We asked for a quite room and were lodged on the 6th floor where we could not hear any noise from the busy road outside. Very comfortable beds too so we slept very well. We did not have the breakfast on this occasion but tried the complimentary coffee machine...

This was the right location for the right price. Rooms were lovely and were a relaxing base after a day of sightseeing. Staff were friendly. Can't fault this hotel from the cleanliness and the decor to the general ambience.

CONS: -room is massively overheated & you have no control over room temp. They advertise air conditioning (falsely) because it is disabled on a certain date. Heat cannot be turned down or off. Even opening the window does not help because the room is that hot, and it's simply not cold enough outside. Be prepared to sweat through the night,...
