Hotel was in a great location, very near to Puerta de Toledo station. (Also near to La Latina Station but its a walk uphill, 5-10 mins). For a 3-star hotel it exceeded our expectations. Room was big and spacious, clean and so was the bathroom. Hotel decor was so-so but it didn't bother us much. Could do with more international channels on the TV. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay.

- Friendly and helpful service (thank you Sonia)
- Easy to find with secure parking available
- Convenient ~15min walk to Plaza Mayor
- ~5-10min walk to restaurant area near theatre
- Decor slightly dated on first impression - lose the bedspread and throw on a white doona and our thoughts would change - it would lift the whole room
- Good value for money on balance of location and parking
- Air conditioned
- Cheap breakfast available in bar area which is just enough to get you going, but very convenient

Stayed two nights at this fantastic hotel, the bedrooms were excellent, lovely clean white sheets, and the bathroom en-suite facilities were really good. The food at this hotel Breakfast and evening meal was a buffet type and was very, very good, with a lot of choice, the bar facilities were also excellent with a free tapas served with the drinks, and all the staff were very helpful and cheerfull. It was also easy walking distance to the centre of Madrid.
I would not hesitate to stay at this Hotel again.

Great place to stay and good value for money although the rooms at the rear of the building are a little dark. Breakfasts varied and enjoyable. Only a short walk from the buzzing old town area, metro, city tour bus stop and the Athletico Madrid Stadium. Staff friendly, polite and very helpful.

Recently stayed here with some friends for 3 nights,although standards of rooms are generally good they are let down by the bathrooms which are small,no fan and windows that open into shower very iffy therefore bathrooms become very wet and slippery. The breakfasts are very good and the staff friendly and helpful, as a hotel to stay in would not put at the top choice if visiting Madrid again.

Stayed there for 8 nights in the end of decembar 2013. Hotel is near two metro lines (maybe 2minuts walk), This hotel is really close to city center (maybe 10-15 minuts walk from Plaza Mayor and Puerta de Sol). Near hotel on sundays there is a market El Rastro (maybe 2 minuts walk). There are also small shops near hotel (food, bars, supermarkets).

Rooms are good and clean. I guess this hotel should get 4th star. They are really doing great job.

The breakfast was really good (huge selection of food). Staff is really good. I must mention in the lobby there is a small restorant and bar. Prices are really good. We enjoyed every night.
If we go back to Madrid we will pick this hotel.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights ,at end of March , and I was really happy that I have choose it for our mini holiday . The hotel has a good location , closed to Puerta Toledo Metro and aprox 1 km from Plaza Mayor. Rooms and the bathroom are big enough and very clean and comfortable.The breakfast is very good , a lot of dishes from you can pick your favorite : fruits, cereals,dry fruits ,different cheese ,vegetables,etc . Very good pastry and spanish coffee . The staff from hotel is very helpful . It was nice that we had the possibility to leave our luggage in a room near reception after we check out in the last day , till we had the flight back home. I recomand this hotel if you plan a holiday in Madrid, I will pick it again when I will turn back :)
