Have you ever wondered if the hotel reviews you read are really from travellers stayed at the hotel? If somebody writes "no WiFi" and you actually find when you are there that the hotel offers a highspeed WiFi service for all your devices (laptop, smartphone etc.) was the review really from a hotel guest or a competitor hotel that tries to ruin the other hotel?
Well I am currently at the High Tech Hotel in Madrid and enjoying my stay. I pay 69.99 EUR per night including breakfast and WiFi (room 402).
What I like
+ Free shuttle from the Madrid airport (just call and they pick you up)
+ Free WiFi for all your devices (not limited to one device as in other hotels)
+ Clean rooms with a king size bed
+ Nice spacious bathrooms with a fancy shower, bidet and toilet
+ Quiet setup in a residential neighborhood with no major roads around it
+ Free home trainer provided in the room (see pictures)
+ Very friendly service people going up and beyond
+ Read drinking glasses (not the cheap plastic cups you find in other budget hotels)
+ Flatscreen TV with many Spanish and some international channels
+ Two fast elevators
+ Pool and relaxation area outside (in summer)
+ Air conditioning in the rooms (not standard in cheaper hotels)
+ Free Dell laptop in the room for Internet (!)
+ Free hot breakfast and yummi
What I don't like that much
- the shower is "high tech" but if a German engineer cannot figure out how to turn it on there is something wrong :)
- Dinner really is mediocre at the hotel - small portions and what I ate was never ever a Sirloin steak (though paid 19 EUR)
