Hotel rooms in Madrid can be quite expensive. We found the Catalonia Goya reasonable with free wifi and breakfast included in our rate.
excellent front desk staff
good choice at breakfast: eggs, bacon, breads, ham, cheese, cereal, 3 juices, coffee, pastries, fruit (there were other items as well - anyone should be able to be satisfied.)
Room for improvement:
Tissues in room are in a little sealed plastic bag. I would prefer a box, easier to get out, and more plentiful.
At breakfast there is a staff member who will make you an omelette or makes pancakes. We came down one morning and the pancakes were already made, but cold, and getting stale. We asked for more and he said he didn't have any batter mixed. Hmm, we didn't make a fuss, it just seemed weird. Churros also are premade and cold. It's my opinion that if you can't make them at the time you wish to eat them, it's a wasted effort.
Would I stay here again? Maybe. For two people, it get's a bit tight because when one person is working at the desk, another cannot walk to that side of the room freely. Mattress are Very firm, but that seems to be the standard throughout Europe. However, for the money, I think it's a great place to stay and definitely very good value.
