“Comfortable & Very nice-looking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

My four-day stay was really pleasant. Though not so near downtown Madrid, it's just one block far from Saínz de Baranda subway station (line 9). The room was clean and comfortable, and the decoration was really nice-looking. The staff was kind and helpful. As far as breakfast is concerned, there was a good variety of food, including the famous churros. The only negative thing was the internet, which is quite slow (unless you're willing to pay some extra Euros)!

This is a pleasant enough Hotel within easy reach of transport to most of Madrid. The room we had was well equipped. The problem though is that although this is a four star Hotel, the WiFi touted as free is not open. The requirement to obtain a 24 hour access card from reception is not up to standard expected. In addition, the service, provided by Kubi, is quite slow. Simple email messages failed to upload.
In this day and age, I feel this was a major fault for the claimed standard of Hotel

Room was small but comfortable , very clean . Staff was very helpful and friendly. Decor was really nice. The hotel is located in a residential area but really close to train station and bus stop. I used the bus to go everywhere I need it to go. Walking distance to nice shops and restaurants. I like it a lot .

Good location, kind staff, tasty breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated not far from the center. Metro station is 5 minutes walk away. Retiro park is 15 minutes walk away. Good hotel at a good price.

This is a modern and nice hotel well located close to the biggest park of Madrid (El Retiro).
Rooms are big and confortable. The staff is friendly and efficient. There are 2 metro stations close to the hotel and a taxi stand just in front. Only 2 minor things that I did not like: you need to ask at the reception for opening the windows and the toilet has one of this modern glass doors.

we booked this hotel bcz of the trip advisor reviews and we were thrilled! the room was small but very comfortable. very modern, immaculate, very quiet. free wi-fi. staff was helpful and kind. they have 2 buildings- europa and usa. we stayed in the usa bcz it was newer but i don't think there is much of a difference. we first checked in at the europa bldng and it was a v short walk to the other bldng. there were a few steps involved but the staff was so helpful it was really effortless. it is situated in a v nice residential area so we were never nervous to come back late at nite. we got there easily from the airport by metro; it took less than an hour for sure. the metro is literally a 3 minute walk from the hotel. there are shops and an atm right near by as well, there are also buses right around the corner, including the #20 which took us right into town. we stayed for 2 nights and were sad to leave. i would recommend it to everyone and would def go back. enjoy!!!!

Room Tip: we were in a corner room on the 6th floor. was really quiet, which is exactly what we asked for. we...
