We stayed at Hotel Lope de Vega in early April, 2012. We first stayed for four nights while we toured Madrid, then we bounced back for a quick overnight before we left Spain. The room was good, with a comfortable king sized bed and a pull out couch. There was a pocket door that separated the bedroom from the living room area. We also had a lovely patio (a 7th floor balcony) that had a lounge chair and a table and two chairs.
The hotel offers free wifi, apples and mints in a bowl in the hallway, writing paper and amenity packages with toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shaving cream, comb, tissues, and a sewing kit. There was also shower gel and shampoo. Very convenient!
We did not eat breakfast here as it was very expensive. There was a great bakery around the corner and a cute organic cafe up the street where we were able to eat. I'd also recommend tapas and cervezas at La Delores, which is locted on the corner of Lope de Vega as you proceed up the hill.
We liked this location. The Prado and Botanical Gardens were about a block away and we were able to walk to Reina Sofia, Puerta del Sol and the Royal Palace. We found that our tourbook maps were somewhat deceptive in that things were much closer than they seemed to be.
