If what you want is to be right in the heart of old Madrid, this is the place! Just meters away from the Plaza Mayor and two minutes walk from Puerta del Sol. The hotel is located in a charming pedestrian area and close to lots of outdoor cafes/restaurants where to enjoy a good breakfast, meal, or drink. The hotel, although rated four stars, is nothing special. The rooms are pretty small (kind of expected for an hotel in the old part of the city) and if you are traveling with a big suitcase, you'll be challenged to find a place for it.
One thing that I didn't enjoy much was how the bathroom was separated from the room. It was with a wall of glass, and even though it was translucent, you could still see the silhouette from the other side of the wall. If I wouldn't have been with my husband, that would have been a great inhibitor for me to use the bathroom, so I would definitively not recommend it for couples who are just getting to know each other.
I can't review breakfast since I didn't dine at the hotel. The people at the front desk were very nice, accommodating, and very helpful. There was a mistake with the reservation and they worked with us to provide us what we needed.
