After just finishing a review on the Urban Hotel I figured I'd also leave a review on Palacio where we stayed on the second leg of our Madrid trip.
We had the Superior room and was upgraded to a Suite. However after discovering that the Suite was a 2 flr plan with a bedroom upstairs and bathroom downstairs, we opted to go back to a Superior room. This was a decent sized livingroom area with a separate bedroom. We were on the 1st floor so not much of a view. We can see people walking around outside so didn't feel super private and at night it was pretty loud and rowdy. Nice to have a coffee maker with free coffee pods and a hot water maker. Heat didn't work great and took a while to heat the room.
Bathroom was tiny. Not a great deal of counter space or room around the toilet. Shower at least had good water pressure and heated up quickly.
I liked this location better than Hotel Urban. This was further away from the touristy Puerta del Sol and closer to the Mercado San Miguel. However it does get loud because there is a great deal of foot traffic around the hotel. Try and get a higher floor and it may be more quiet.
Rest of Hotel
There is a decent gym where you can grab free bottles of water. There is also a restaurant in the hotel Estado Puro. The restaurant had cool funky decor and was convenient but the food was only average.
If you are looking for a super luxury five star hotel, this is not the hotel to choose. This is more of a average 4 star hotel and is in need of a makeover.
