The great plus of this hotel is the location.
Everything else you dont mind because location makes up for it. 3 minute walk from metro station, makes it very very extremely convenient. Everything, or most of it, is as of walking distance which makes moving in the city very easy. We even arrived from the airport on the metro and that was piece of cake.
When you leave the hotel, If you turn right on gran via you are of walking distance to Neptuno, Cibeles, Prado and if you go left a more commercial district arises on the gran via. If you want to go further the metro is half a block away.
Besides location breakfast was very good, they even leave small packed snacks for your mid morning cravings. Elevators are small, one of them specially, which makes waiting in the hall a bit annoying. Even for european standards this elevator could take more than 2 people sliding sideways to fit!
Rooms are spacious, although we had to change due the street noise on weekends, so ask for an inner room (we originally had a beautiful room with balcony and view, but sleep quality after long walking days was mandatory). Its not a modern hotel, decor is outdated, but it offers wifi (although you have to ask for a special code for each device you use and if the device forgets the code you have to do this process each and everytime you want to log in), I didnt mind the TV as there is so much to do in Madrid I didnt even have the time to try it, minibar was convenient, and didnt have any issues. Bathroom was spacious considering you are in europe and the building is old, although it seems Best Western provides now with a shower gel that works as shampoo, conditioner, soap etc which was something hard to get used to. (not only in Madrid's BW but in europe in general as we stayed in a few) Works for the environment but not sure if just one gel works for all.
Madrid is a city full of night life, so we appreciated how close the hotel was from all squares where the night life is. Personnel from the hotel was polite and keen to solve most issues at hand. They are not extremely friendly nor are most folks from Madrid but nothing that would ruin your vacation.
I would definitely go there again because surrounding hotels are more expensive and this hotel's location is unbeatable.
