This hotel was centrally located for all major attractions in Madrid, close to a bus stop for the sight seeing bus tour, and a few minutes from the metro.
Though it was a 4 star hotel, I agree with former reviewers that it was very dated but it was an old building and not claiming to be a modern hotel. We found the rooms very clean, just a bit old fashioned in decor, which didn't bother us at all. The walls were very thin though and you could indeed hear your neighbour's general conversation. A previous reviewer says there were no tea and coffee facilities but the guide in each room clearly stated that you could request a hospitality tray. We did this and a tray with kettle, tea, coffee, milk and sugar was delivered up to our room. This was replenished daily or on request throughout our stay.
The breakfast selection was varied if very basic and poor quality but adequate enough for the price we paid. The tv was a waste of time as there were no English speaking channels and very poor reception but we didn't go to Spain to sit in the hotel watching tv all weekend! It would have been nice to have had at least 1 English news channel though that we could occasionally watch.
Staff were always very friendly and helpful at all times, waiting staff in the breakfast room very quick and efficient. One or 2 had difficulty in understanding English but all tried their best. The piano bar in the evening was a very relaxing place to have a drink with friends who we travelled with and they served very appetising snacks and sandwiches.
