Well designed hotel with modern fit out. Family rooms using contemporary tiles in bathrooms - retro striped wallpaper - dark grey heavy stage curtains which looked great and assisted with sound - simple contemporary light fittings - double bunk bed with well placed stairs and large queen sized beds (bed mattress was a little hard). Staff at reception were quick with the paperwork and were able to assist with early check-in. There is a breakfast cafe - but if you walk a couple minutes towards downtown there is a few authentic local cafes for breakfast and lunch with coffee, tea, cake, tortilla (and beer). Outside door there is many bars and restaurants - but for dinner and beyond it is only 5 minute walk to the alternate area into the Tribunal area (if you leave Calle Fuencarral which has the known brand shops - there is some good second hand shops interspersed with young designers, delicatessen, plaza etc) with great bars and restaurants. The Metro is easy in Madrid and Alonso Martinez Metro is only 1 minute walk from the entrance which will get you to wherever you want in downtown (Opera, Palacio Real), or to Calle Serrano (Shopping), Atocha (Reina Sofia - Picasso 'Guernica' + Real Jardin Botainco). But if you are tourist + have the time - you can walk to all these area's as well.
