Stayed here before the Madrid Marathon and had a really great experience because of the willingness of the hotel staff to give us information on the city, the cleanliness of the room, and the proximity to the metro. We chose the hotel because of the price and were very surprised for what we got out of it in comparison to what we've paid in similar amounts with many less amenities. Would recommend this hotel to someone who wants a good value, and who isn't afraid of using the metro or walking to get around town rather than being in the heart of town. Also liked the absolutely free airport shuttle, which we've found some hotels advertise an airport shuttle, but still charge a high fee for the service.

This is a good hotel not too far from the airport.
The hotel has a small gym. If you like running there is a running track 5 minutes from the hotel.
The hotel has a bar and is next to Vips restaurant if you want something quick to eat.
Price is good and the hotel is clean with good service.

Have stayed here numerous times on business. Service is pretty good and the rooms and hotel in general are spotlessly clean. It just lacks a bit of soul and any uniqueness and the rooms are pretty dreary for hanging out in. Very near to the airport but a little way from the city centre. I would not stay here for pleasure.

The rooms are relatively spacious and well-maintained. The hotel is in a bland industrial/business district, but close to 2 metro stops (same line). Breakfast is average, and the hotel "cafeteria" has a very limited menu. Not many good restaurants within walking distance.

This hotel is well appointed, with quiet, clean, spacious bedrooms. The shower in our room (143) was good and we also had a jacuzzi bath. The free wireless internet worked well and was easy to connect to. The breakfast buffet catered for every taste and offered a wide range of options but is perhaps a little overpriced at 15 euros. We didn't try out any of the channels on the TV, but I was surprised that it wasnt a flat screen. The big advantage for us was the free shuttle bus which took us to Madrid Barajas airport within 15-20 minutes. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
