A really decent hotel in a great location in Madrid. The hotel is right between the the Plaza Espania and Santa Domingo Metro stations. It does seem to be catered more towards business stays, but was perfectly decent as a base to explore Madrid.
There are a couple downsides to the hotel:
If your room faces the street, then it will be rather loud in the mornings and evenings if you are trying to sleep.
There are some cleaning issues with the bathroom, there seems to be a moldy substance in the bathrooms and you will have to get used to the constant air freshner smell that is rather overpowring at times.
On the plus side, the air-con works wonderfully and the breakfasts are really good value at EUR8 per person, with a really good spread of meats and cheeses.
