The hotel is a good solid choice of hotel in a good location, just a short walk from Atocha station from which you can get the metro to Sol and the centre of Madrid. The hotel itself is nicely furbished and clean. Upon check in at 10pm on a sunday night, I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who was very helpful and suggested I take a room on the first floor as it had access to the lobby free WIFI. Unfortunately, this was not the case as the signal was too weak to connect but it was a nice hint anyway. The room was nice with a huge bathroom, great shower and smaller bedroom but comfortable bed. The minibar is not free so please ignore reviews which state this. All in all the hotel was clean, comfortable and with some nice touches such as the large bathroom. On the downside though, do not use the hotel room phone as the charges are extortionate! There is also quite a lot of noise from the bathrooms of other guests. Also, the food in the hotel is overpriced for Madrid and whilst ok, isnt very satisfying for the price. I also had the buffet breakfast which had a good selection of bread and cold meats but not much hot food and for 17 euros felt this wasnt value for money. My only other negative is the front desk receptionist in the day time isnt very friendly. I asked if he could help me send a letter and he pointed me to a shop to buy stamps where they didnt speak english. most hotels will offer to post it for you.
