On our arrival in Madrid via the AVE from Malaga, we took the metro Chueca, where we entered a square from the station and found a few cafe's. After a little confusion about which way to go, we found the hotel in an area which looked at first sight a little run down, but not so far from the Metro.
Two large blue china vases adorned the front entrance and we entered the hotel through automatic doors into a whole new world............
We were greeted by a friendly and polite doorman and were shown to the reception, where we had a warm welcome and smiles. After the normal admission procedures we were shown to the elevator disguised as part of a tile look wall.
We arrived in our room, where the decor was equally unusual and pleasing, a large double bed in a good sized room and bathroom. One thing that impressed me was the extremely high standard of cleanliness, white sheets and bedding and not one bit of dust anywhere. The aircon was really efficient and we were there in a heat wave, there was a stocked mini bar, phone, docking station, wifi, dressing gowns, safe, jewellery box, hairdryer and straighteners, with all of the normal toiletries.
Downstairs, there was a bar and lounge area with very unusual and pleasing, bright and light, decor . We had a really nice tapas and cocktails in the bar and a wide range menu for breakfast.
We found that the area was quite central for many restaurants and bars and we felt safe and was not as bad as we first thought when we arrived.
To conclude, all of the staff were very friendly and polite, the hotel was exceptionally clean, with unusual decor and had all of the amenities that we required. It was central for dining out, although there was a restaurant and bar in the hotel and was in easy reach of the Metro.
