Definitely the location is a great asset of this hotel. I love the decoration, inspired on the traditional construction materials used in the Canary Islands. The premises looked clean to me though I found a bug strolling over my bed.
- though the location is awesome, prostitutes wander within 100 feet from the hotel. Not a bad deal as it's a safe area but be aware of this if you have kids.
- several night clubs and bars are very close to the hotel and the noise is insane during the whole night, any day of the week. Drunk people yelling, fights, etc. I value a hotel where I can rest and unfortunately this wasn't the case for my whole stay (2 nights). My room faced the street, don't know if other options more quite are available.
I didn't take the breakfast at the hotel; I chose to take the traditional (and cheaper) Spanish breakfast (café con tostadas or churros) in any of the nearby cafes around. You have also a Starbucks in Gran Via, just around the corner.
Staff was very friendly and corteous but sometimes I saw them struggling with simple things or overwhelmed when more than 2 customers were in the lane waiting. Said this I prefer this way instead of the cold and false sympathy of the great hotels.
I don't think it's a bad hotel but I'd choose probably another one on my next visit to Madrid.
