What an incredible hotel - the central location (the bus from the airport virtually dropped us outside) to the fact that every member of staff we met spoke perfect English - everything was perfect. We arrived early (about 11am), but our room was ready & we were shown up. A very opulent foyer, and the corridor to our room was made up of beautiful mahogany doors. The room itself was spacious, with possibly the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Well equipped with TV (with several English TV channels), safe, hairdryer, mini-bar & everything else you could want. The bathroom was equally well equipped with a great rain shower (over the bath) & high quality toiletries (always a good sign!), robes etc.
Our only gripe was the absence of free wifi in the bedrooms (it was in the foyer)... & the only way to get wifi in the room was to buy a package including TV movies, which we did not need.
But the highlight was possibly the breakfast buffet - I am not sure I have ever seen a more extensive array of cereals, juices, cold meats, cheeses, warm food, pancakes, omelette bar, Asian selections, churros, muffins, fruit and juice. Truly amazing.
The bar was very expensive, so we didn't try it, but looked nice.
If you can afford it, this is the place to stay in Madrid!
