Easy to find, just off the Gran Via (take the road next to Pans & Co). Super clean and the room was more than adequate size for two people. Requested a lower floor room with balcony and got exactly what we asked for. Other reviews said the street was noisy. We did not find this to be true AT ALL!!! The only noise came from the cleaner at around 10am moving furniture around in other rooms. Kind of annoying but tolerable. The air-con was a godsend. Staff were all friendly and helpful. WiFi was excellent (and free) and only dropped out occasionally during peak times. We walked everywhere in Madrid due to the great location of the hotel. The roads surrounding it (barco etc) have some lovely tabernas too. Would 100% recommend this hotel as well as stay here again.
