We stayed for a week in July. This hotel is perfectly located near many of the major museums and galleries that we wanted to visit. Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia are all within a few minutes walk. We didn't use the metro or take a taxi until our 6th day.
In keeping with the property, the staff are very pleasant, helpful and very well presented. David on the front desk, who gave us two outstanding restaurant referrals, deserves commendation.
We stayed in a standard single level room. They are small, but well appointed with high end finishes and beautiful marble bathrooms, suitable for a gay couple travelling together. Despite being a little cramped we still managed to be comfortable with two large and two small suitcases. The hotel room was equipped with a night light in the bathroom but was lacking a clock, this led to one missed breakfast, as the black-out blinds excelled at their role.
The roof terrace had a great view of the surrounding buildings. The pool was a little cold to swim and the gym facilities basic. However, each was clean and of a high standard, a perfect place to enjoy your complimentary glass of French champagne.
The breakfast buffet had a great selection of breads, cold cuts and cooked to order eggs. The coffee was decent also. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurants for any other meals, as there is a wonderful selection in the neighbourhood.
Definitely worth the spend for the position and friendliness of the staff.
