A nice and very very convenient hotel. Location is tops, almost everything within walking distance, side quiet street a few metres from Gran Via - next to a police station , absolutely safe day and night. Our room was in the rear facing a wall falling apart, but room was spacious, clean, recently renovated and quiet. Flat wide screen 32" tv and mini bar. Breakfast was very generous at a cost of 8 euros (and not 15 as mentioned by reviewers) which was good value for money. Corridors look tired and need repairs. Excellent service at the reception by Ms Sara who went to great lengths to help us, though some others are slow and speak very little english.
Negative? yes, the first 24 hours internet (free) was awful and non existing. Repaired next day. Phone was dead and repaired upon our request. Paper thin walls and noisy housemaids. Worst of all , despite many requests this hotel did not operate ANY AIRCONDITIONING though Madrid was boiling hot at over 30C. Some Israelis advised reception they would move elsewhere and were promised air conditioning as of 11/5/2012 !!!
In general this is a very good hotel, close to everything and we would stay here again.
