I stayed one night in this hotel for a business trip. I found the room far to complicated for the limited time I had in it however had I been on holiday it would have been a completely different experience.
- Free Wifi
The staff was efficient. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. We did not eat in the restaurants. The location is outside the centre of Madrid, but there were plenty of reasonably priced cabs available at this location. The hotel is close to the metro and bus line.
If you don't mind exploring for yourself then this is a great option to stay in. If you want to be right in the centre of Madrid, so the tourist hotspots are on your doorstep then it's not, but expect the price of your holiday to rocket if you want this.
We stayed for three nights in this hotel and chose Floor 6. It was probably the most 'normal' of them all with enormous bed, tv, bath and shower, minibar and city view. If you are worried about your room being too quirky,stay on floor 6 for peace of mind. Room service was good, we called for an iron and a three pin plug adaptor which they happily bought.
Metro stop was about three minute walk along one road. It was safe and quiet. Metro was simple to understand, exactly like the London Underground and was a good way to see the city.
We walked to the Real Madrid Stadium from the hotel. It took a good hour and you need a map or you will get lost! Don't eat around the Bernabeu,worst food I have ever had (think tinned cold bolognese).
Food in Madrid was hit and miss, but there were some great dining places at plaza de mayor, although pricey.
Do email the hotel ahead of your holiday to ask for the free transfer from airport to hotel, well worth it!
Wouldn't visit Madrid again but perfectly happy with hotel choice!
It's difficult to rate this hotel. Some things are good, but it's got no soul. Whether that's because it's outside of the centre or just because of the austere decor I'm not sure. We've enjoyed our stay, the hotel being quite empty may have helped, I had the 13th floor pool, next to the nightclub, to myself each morning and evening! Also we got a good deal through Expedia so the cost meant it was good value, but if I'd have paid 5 star rates I may have been disappointed.
Waw ...what a fantastic new idea for a 5 star hotel with hilarious designs..i spent 5 days with my family and we all admired the change of the routine style of hotels.We were in the Japanese floor..staff very cheerful and helpful and most spoke english...Being 2 minutes walk to metro and 3 minutes to bus stations made it easier to be near the sightseeing events..some of the group complained that the shower was without a door or with a transparent one but could choose another room..Take the glass elevator and stop at each floor to enjoy its design..
Each floor has different design chosen on an Ipad while at the front desk. The room was very clean in an ice blue great architecture. Breakfast 20e was a bit expensive tough.
Metro station is 200 meters from the hotel and city center can be reached in 15 minutes.
Very good wifi connection, an hotel to stay in.
