Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 24, 2013

A brilliant combination of traditional and contemporary style, this small hotel offers you beautifully designed and very comfortable rooms in a perfect location, at the heart of the old Madrid. The staff are a true credit to the establishment and their level of customer service is excellent, making you feel most welcome from the minute you cross the front door, until you leave.

In "La Antoñita" the food is amazing!!! Really friendly atmosphere, great value for money, with some of the most delicious dishes I've ever tried and all wash down with beautiful wines and cavas at a very reasonable price. Brilliant for a romantic date or to come with a group of friends, although there were some families with kids who seemed to be having a great time too!!!

I you come to Madrid don't miss this place, even just to have a couple of drinks at the bar and to take a look around. I can't wait to come back there!!

A very lovely small design hotel. Located in Barrio Latino far away from the city traffic. The next door is a wine boutique rest Leod del Oro. 15 mins walk throung the narrow streets and you are ordering a fresh tapas at Mercado San Miguel.

The best place to spend a romantic weekend.

Posada Del Dragon is a great little hotel situated in the Latin Area of Madrid. Close to the tourist spots, Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor etc. the rooms are small but very trendy and exceptionally clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful with their advice about the area.

Room Tip: Rooms in back are much quieter than those in front although they are sound proofed but for super sen...

I stayed at the Posada del Dragon after reading some good reviews. It's also a reasonable price but that's one of the few positives.

It's fairly easy to find but not a lot of indication that it's actually a hotel. The street is a busy street of tapas bars and the hotel has its own which gets exceptionally busy.....

Unfortunately the bar area also doubles up as reception. If you can call it that. So arrive at the wrong time and you have to struggle into a packed bar and try and find the tiny reception desk at the end of the bar. Then wait until the staff realise that you are there.... Check in was quick when the guy finally came over but he gave no information about the hotel

I'd booked what was laughingly called a larger room. Massive lack of anywhere to store anything. Weird lights that I assume someone thought were trendy (but look like they came from the Habitat closing down sale). Nice little balcony but looked directly into busy restaurant opposite so had to keep shutters closed all the time.

Wifi signal pretty rubbish but at least it was free

Shower was big and nice range of toiletries

The rooms are all around an inner courtyard (standard rooms have no windows other than on to this) this is open to the elements so it can get really cold. I turned up the heating in the room only to get reception come up and tell me the control in my room controlled the whole floor so had to turn it down. This may not be a problem in the summer but it was exceptionally cold at the time.

Another drawback of the inner courtyard is its also used by the bar when its busy so a lot of noise travels up. Also smoking oddly seems to be permitted here even though the only place for the fumes to go and linger is the walkways to the rooms

Didn't have breakfast as it was on the pricey side and plenty of nearby places at a fraction of the cost

Staff I encountered didn't seem overly interested in the hotel or its guests. The bar and restaurant seemed most important to them. Only exception was the guy with loads of tattoos (crucifix on back?) ... Very nice guy and makes great coffee

To sum up.... If you want a noisy tiny room then this place is fine. Otherwise go elsewhere

Room Tip: They're all small.... But go for the balcony rooms which are less small. Also try and avoid roo...

I really don't have anything bad to say about this hotel, but upon arrival, my room smelled like pot. I had to prop the door open a little bit to air the room out. Bed was comfortable and shower was very good. Free wifi worked well, too.

This hotel was wonderful...great rooms with cunning layout, nice high ceilings, large french doors to have a view down to the street, etc. All the staff were amazing in my couple night stay. Cute little bar on ground level is a great place to start the evening early and has a nice breakfast as well. Great value for money in the center of it all in Madrid.

Room Tip: I liked the room facing the street, but of course it was the only one I saw!
