The standout for the hotel is its location - right across from the Prado, surrounded by great little cafes, 500m from the metro, but on a quiet side street so there's no noise. That was perfect.
And overall, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms were lovely, comfy bed, free wifi (thank you!), friendly staff, and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone on this basis.
There were just a few little things that niggled me. 1. The shampoo was terrible. I don't mean just ordinary. I mean I don't even think it was shampoo. My hair was destroyed afterwards. I've never had such an experience. 2. There was only BBC TV in English - unless you wanted to pay 15EU for more English language TV. 3. The strange bathroom design meant it was really impossible to have a shower without getting the whole room wet (although I note the showers were wheelchair friendly, perhaps these things are related). 4. The shower ran hot and cold meaning you had to keep stepping out of it to avoid being burned. All little things - but it's the little things that make the difference, sometimes. And which might make me look around next time.
Overall, though, it was brilliant and I probably would stay again. I'd just bring my own shampoo.
