“Hotel ok. Don't expect much unless you wanna be disapointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I've stayed with a 3 year old boy and they put me in a smoking floor and apartment. It took me a while for the front desk to understand the situation. Nice breakfast (what saves the overall aspects). Room very simple. The air seems to not be working in its full capacity. At the end good deal for the buck, nothing more.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a stripped down hotel but very usefully located and excellent value for money. They have clean rooms and beds - not hugely comfortable - and the air conditioning on a very hot day in Madrid doesn't cool very well, but you can't beat less than 100 Euros a night. They also serve a decent breakfast. The staff are spectacular. Friendly, kind and opened the breakfast for me a half an hour early because I had an early flight. WiFi is OK and a bit fiddly but again, can't beat the value for money and it's my go to hotel in Madrid.

I go there from time to time for business reasons. It is not a fancy hotel. Room are minimalist as forniture. But it is confortable, personnel very kind and very good quality breakfast. Gym very poor.

In my last review i rated 4/5. But i visited again and was not real pleased with the small, interior, dark room. Location is great. Nearby Roblenos market on Diego de Leon - for wine, cheese, bread, etc (ask for Javier).

I now stay at NH Vergara. Much nicer hotel in same area.

Poor hotel with good location: rooms are tiny, the AC did not work for a couple of days, wifi is extremely slow and most of the gym machines did not work out.
Do not come for business, only worthy if you are a tourist and you are planning to be most of the time out of the hotel.

Room Tip: The restaurants around are really good!

(+) Small but clean rooms, comfortable beds, nicely located (10 min walk to IE business school), free wifi, breakfast included, cheap for the area, nice restaurants around, coffee/tea available in the room

(-) Room smelling smoke when arrived (might be just bad luck), poor breakfast choice and quality (don't take it if not included, nice breakfast available 5 min walk for about 5 EUR), staff polite but not really helpful, wifi very very low bandwidth (Skype / Facetime can be difficult to use), prohibitive prices for the minibar (more than usual...)

Room Tip: I was in 414. The room is at the end of the corridor, far away from lift and quiet.
