We really enjoyed this hotel. The location could not have been better. The entrance to the hotel is in the middle of a pedestrian plaza with all types of stores and restaurants right outside the door. The Plaza del Sol is just down the street and everything we wanted to see in Madrid was within walking distance. And there is a metro stop very nearby, so getting to the hotel from the Attocha train station was extremely quick and easy. Getting to the airport was a bit trickier, but the hotel staff told us what we need to do. The hotel staff spoke English and were friendly and helpful in general.
The rooms were comfortable and clean, though a bit worn. The rooms were tight by our American standards, but certainly spacious by European standards. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and had plenty of space. There was occasionally a bit of noise from other guests coming and going in the halls, but it was not too disturbing.
There was one problem though. We had two rooms and neither one had working air conditioning. It was a bit toasty at night, but both rooms faced an interior courtyard, so we were able to sleep with the windows open without letting in the street noise. In all fairness, we did not contact the front desk about the lack of air conditioning.
All in all, we felt this hotel was a tremendous value and we would definitely stay here again.
