This is a very clean well run hotel where all the staff work hard and try very much to please. The lady in the dining room never stops working, replenishing the buffet food, clearing and resetting tables making sure breakfast runs smoothly.

First let me comment how lovely the staff are. I caught a Madrid bus which came in at 5 ( I thought 6). I didn't approach the hotel until 7 ( I thought 8), so they could hold my bags. Now they went above the call of duty and let me have a room so I could have a shower...

Positives: lovely, helpful staff. Spacious, clean rooms. Secure parking in the basement of the hotel. Good value. Things to consider: it's a 2-star hotel. So not fancy, and breakfast is fairly simple. It's a short metro ride to the centre of town, but rather few restaurants and places to eat within walking distance.

It was very nice hotel. Very friendly staff and very good service. It's relatively close to the historic area of the city as well. It is also very easily accessed through public transportation which is a blessing.
