The best part of Hotel Preciados was its location, right in the middle of everything and everywhere. Plus subway stations really close made access to sites extremely easy. El Cortes Ingles (the superstore) is also close, as are a number of restaurants and cafes (though the top floor of E.C.I. was good enough for me--with a number of gourmet cafes and an excellent view).
The hotel itself was very clear and neat. Rooms were quiet, even on the day of a soccer tournament final! The minibar (included) is wonderful. I enjoyed the terrific shower (no bath in my room). The balcony was nice as well. Wifi was speedy ... and free.
I did the breakfast for just one day and concluded the Euro 16 price was just not worth it. So I canceled; a good decision. There are a number of other places where one can get cheaper fare. (I didn't try the restaurant hotel, either).
Did a bus tour to Escorial and Valley of the Dead through the hotel. Decent enough and saved me a lot of time and taxi-negotiation.
Staff were fine, though they could be a bit friendlier and, in terms of customer service, they could be a bit more interested in their clients (or at least act like they were).
I think the price is right and it is well worth it. Made for a great stay in a terrific city!
