“Great Hotel, Great City”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We recently stayed at this great hotel with friends on our first visit to Madrid.
The location of the hotel is excellent for all Madrid has to offer be it sightseeing, shopping or wining and dining.
The hotel was initially a little difficult to find on foot as it is located in a pedestrianised area and the taxi we took from the airport dropped us off on the main road, but once we arrived we received excellent service from all members of staff throughout our stay.
The room and bathroom were modern and very clean with all the facilities you would need.
We took the option to have breakfast included and were glad we did as it was exceptional with a good choice of locally made hot and cold dishes.
There was a nice bar overlooking the street which was great to waste an hour of so people watching.
The free in room mini bar was a nice touch too.
We all really enjoyed our 2 days here and would stay here next time we are in Madrid as two days is not enough to see this magnificent city.

Room Tip: The street view rooms are very quiet as they are secondary glazed

This Hotel is off of the beaten path enough to be calm and peaceful, but within a few minutes walk to the major attractions of Madrid (Gran Via, Puerta del Sol, shopping). The decor is very modern and new. The rooms are well furnished, but not as big as American rooms. Loved the bathroom. Has all the facilities needed. WiFi throughout he hotel and is fast and free.

The restaurant is not over priced, but very competitive for the location, except breakfast. There are a multitude of local eateries around the area, covering many tastes. The Chimi-Churri restaurant was great!

Watch the website for specials on rates.

My wife and I enjoyed this lovely hotel. Its location in the heart of the city is wonderful; most sites accessible by walking; and close to Metro.

Hotel staff are very aware of their Tripadvisor status and work hard on keeping patrons like me writing nice things about the hotel. Staff were extremely helpful; very professional and friendly.

Our room (701) was off to back with no streetview BUT very modern. We requested to be moved to a room with a streetview but decided to stay put in the up to date room -- great shower, fun lighting and very quiet. the frig had a few beverages which are free; but not over the top.

Very nice restaurant with the hotel; we ate breakfast there each morning; for 15 Euro they offer a full buffet with drinks etc. Found this to be a good value. Food was very good; service somewhat average.

All in all I highly recommend the hotel --- clean, friendly, great location!

Room Tip: look at 701 if available or ask for a renovated room

This was our first trip to Madrid and we're really happy we went with Hotel Preciados. Personally, I think the location is even better than the Ritz (which opens on an enormous and busy traffic circle). The Hotel Preciados was in a relatively quiet corner with the added benefit of double-paned windows. We requested the non-smoking floor which was two levels up from the ground floor and had no problem with noise at all. There were also built-in blinds that blocked all the light from the street.
The room was very comfortable, modern, and clean, with a good firm mattress (no sagging), and handheld shower head.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We especially loved the Cafe Verela staff.

Room Tip: Very satisfied with our smoke-free room on the second floor.

Wow! What a gem! All the sights were within walking distance from this precious hotel! Rooms were spacious and comfortable and the service was impeccable! Free mini bar was a bonus.

The Hotel is in the very heart of Madrid on the pedestrian Callao Preciados Street and is absolutely perfect for a visit to Madrid. We selected the Hotel based on ever reliable Trip Advisor reviews and were absolutely thrilled with our choice:
Arrival : We flew in from Munich and took a taxi from the Airport. The Taxi dropped us a few steps away from the main entrance which is supposedly pedestrian. I had read in one of the reviews that you can take the taxi to the doorstep of the Hotel but since you could see the Hotel entrance and it was a few steps only we did not want to break any rules so we got off with our luggage. The alert doorman of the Hotel noticed this and promptly came forward to assist us with the luggage and also seemed to admonish the Taxi driver for not dropping us at the entrance, which we presumed was permitted. Good start to our arrival in Madrid. We were promptly and efficiently checked in at the Reception and they gave us a Room on the 4th Floor with a balcony on the street as we had requested at the time of our direct Hotel web booking.
Room: Very well appointed Room (We had the standard Double with Breakfast included) with all amenities with comfortable double beds, not too large but just right size with a balcony on a side street. Adequate storage with electronic safe and LCD TV and even a Radio above the Bed. There were enough hangers in the cupboard to hang all our clothes. The Room also had electronic black out curtains for all windows and double glazed windows to ensure noise free stay. We slept like babies. It had a balcony but the balconies in Spain Hotels (we also observed this in the Casa Camper Hotel in Barcelona also after Madrid) are small and just enough for 2 people to stand and view the street. Not a place where you can spend a lot of time . The Bathroom was very spacious with bath tub and shower with temperature control settings, with excellent shower pressure. The bath amenities were fantastic with even toothbrush and comb and superior quality stuff. Everything you need was there. Truly 4 star stuff and they deserve the rating. Did I tell you about the free mini bar. They have soft drinks, juices, beer, lays and water which is replenished daily. Great to come back after a day of sightseeing and enjoy the free mini bar and beer . They also give you more water or juices if you ask them. Housekeeping did a perfect job of keeping the Room spick and span unobtrusively. Everything in the Room worked like clockwork during our 4 night stay and we did not have a single malfunction.
The Location: Located right in the heart of the City on a pedestrian street with Restaurants, Tapas Bars, Ice Cream Parlours, etc. All around and the hustle and bustle of the city all around the Hotel makes you feel vibrant and is sure to add a spring to your step .A one minute walk to the Callao metro station, 5 minutes walk to Puerto Sol and similar distance to the Gran Via main road you just cannot beat the central location. You can walk to almost everywhere if you want. The Prado Museum etc. Walk may be a bit too long. However, we took advantage of the Open topped Tourist Bus for a one day ticket arranged by the Hotel at a discount. You can take the bus at the 6th stop on the Gran Via main road (near McDonalds) and get off any number of times at the sights which you would like to see. This, we found to be the most economical way to see a city.You can also buy a 2 day ticket if you would like to do the sights at a leisurely pace and you do not have time constraints. The trick is to start early and try to complete as much as possible during the day. The Palace is nearby so you can do it separately if desired.
The Breakfast: Really Top Class and worth a special mention. We have travelled to many places all over the World and stayed at many 4/5 star Hotels but very rarely have we come across a Breakfast Spread as good as the Preciados. They have 4 types of egg preparations, besides meat and other usual dishes and cold cuts, assorted bread, fruits and even an excellent caramel custard and cheesecake. Also 2 types of Coffee i.e. American style and the other from Nespresso machine with the strength as per your choice.
Reception: Excellent, knowledgeable, courteous and responsive staff which itself is a plus of the Hotel. They booked a table at the Flamengo show at Cafe Chintos (i am not sure if the spelling is correct) which is a 5 minute walk from the Hotel. A good show and very convenient at fairly reasonable prices. They also booked our Toledo half day tour and gave us great tips on Tapas bars and not too expensive places to eat. However, having said that there is really no dearth of places to eat all around the Hotel and even the Hotels Restaurant Varela is pretty good.
In short, this Hotel is the perfect choice in a great Central location with easy access to the sights, modern, quiet , comfortable and very efficiently managed. What more can you want. I would wholeheartedly recommend this Hotel to all and if we visit Madrid again this would be our first choice without any doubt.

Room Tip: Standard Rooms are good enough for a Couple. Opt for higher floor rooms
