We only stayed here one night but really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are reasonably new, in good condition, with nice touches like a good powerful hairdryer. Aircon also worked well and didn't blow onto the bed.
Things that might not be to everyones taste are the shower & toilet were behind a glass partition (and door). It was frosted in all the right places, but it was unusual to be able to look out from the shower into the bedroom.
We particularly liked the mattress - we both had a very good nights sleep. So much so that on checkout the very nice person in charge gave us all the details of where they got it from.
The staff were all super helpful, but a special mention goes to person on duty in the morning (sadly I didn't get her name). She was very helpful to us, and also to other people staying (for example helping to print out flight boarding passes).
A note on parking - really the best thing is not to have a car in central Madrid - but for one reason or another we did. The best place to park is under the market near the hotel - it is EUR 29.50 for 24 hours, which is pretty much the going rate. There are cheaper places but more of a walk and more homework required to find them.
