This is a very nice hotel overall with ultramodern decor. Big plus with this hotel is that their check in and checkout time is 1 pm. The subway stop Ventura Rodriguez is right outside the hotel so it is convenient to just hop on the subway and get to pretty much anywhere in Madrid.
However it's not the nicest location if you don't want to hop on the subway. There was no place just to grab a cup of coffee and a croissant in the morning. The only options are to have the super expensive voluminous breakfast in the hotel, or walk to the Grand Via which is about a 10 minute walk, or hop on the subway. None of these options were that pleasing to me and when you just want a cup of coffee first thing in the morning without paying 10 euros for it (if you choose room service) it's a little annoying.
I wish they just had one of those coffee makers ubiquitous in every US hotel and I wouldn't be writing this.
Would I stay here again? I might. It really is a very nice hotel with very nice room and bathroom. Ill have to figure something out for morning coffee though...
