Visited with a friend for a weekend city break in September. Location is perfect to access most of Madrid, we didn't use the metro. Taxi from the airport was a little expensive but saved on the time and convenience. Now I know where it's based I will use the metro again.

Make use of the city tour bus - you'll get your bearings straight away !

Despite visiting during the violent protests in Madrid that weekend, my friend and I felt safe and had no worries wondering around the main parts. In fact we didn't see or hear any of the protests reported on the news the next day. Unlike Barcelona and it's annoying pick pockets I didn't notice anything as extreme as that city.

The only thing I would say is that the bathroom is a little exposed behind glass doors - you'll have to be good friends before or if not after your trip !

Room was cosy, but we weren't there to stay in the hotel but to see the sights of Madrid. We were supposed to be a party of 3 so may have been a little squashed but we would've survived. Like the bottle of wine on arrival - nice touch.

I would come back and stay in this hotel again.

GREAT LOCATION

This hotel, at one block of the “Gran Via” street, has a great location.
There is one hop-on hop-off stop at “Grand Via” one block from the intersection between the hotel street and “Grand Via”. Located a few meters from San Domingo metro station and there are many restaurants and snack bar´s nearby.
We can go to a supermarket at underground of the “El Corte Ingles” department store. There is a self laundry (named: ONDA) following the same street, crossing “Grand Via” and turn right on the second block.
We stay six nights and the rooms have a lap top connected to internet.
The hotel isn´t a 4 * but I recommend it for the gentility of the employees and location.
Trapsatur Travel Agency is beside the hotel, selling packages tours to Africa & Europe.

We were unsure of where to stay when we decided to book Madrid.

In the end we booked ourselves into the San Bernardo and overall we were very happy!

Firstly the negatives, we had booked the hotel back in May and had requested a King Bed when we arrived they said they didn't have any but only twin pushed together, I did explain we had booked a King, the lady at reception said have a look at the current room and if not happy then she would put us into a room that had a King. In the end we stayed in the room they gave us as just didn't see point of moving around as we were only there for 4 days and price we paid back in May was same price for double or King. However if you really want a King just make sure you email them before you arrive to make sure it is a King bed!

The rooms do not have any teas/coffee facilities - we weren't too bothered as out having this

The room could have been in better condition - part of the ceiling vent was falling off and it didn't look pretty, the shower water does get everywhere when showering and it also hits the ceiling so some of the paint on the ceiling is peeling off.

Now the Pros

Fab location! Was close to everything, Metro was a minutes walk to places further a field otherwise could just walk to most of Centro in 5-10mins

Room has a laptop and free internet which was great when researching on places to go.

Cafes, restaurants walking distances from hotel which offered Tapas and Paella at very good prices. Cheaper than town and in my opinion sometimes better quality!

Staff were helpful as needed help in booking flamenco and they did this for us over the phone. Got good seats too!

In all I would recommend the hotel, yes rooms are not quite 4 star but you are not in your rooms 24/7, for us location was more important and this hotel provided it.
If you are expecting a 4 star hotel then this isn't right for you.

Room Tip: Book away from the service lists and away from front of hotel as it can be noisy.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in September 2012. Do not think it should be classed as a 4*, a 3 at the most.

The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the location is excellent as you can walk everywhere and it is almost next to the Metro.

The rooms are very small, just room for the bed and not big enough for 2 adults to move around comfortably. Room also a bit shabby, neading a bit of a spruce up. The bathroom and shower were fine, but a lack of the toiletries one is usually offered in a 4* Hotel. The reception and seating area are very small also.

Overall OK, convenient, but not luxury

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend of 2-6 August. We found that the hotel was extremely clean, the rooms were quiet and the staff were really helpful and friendly. The breakfast was continental buffet style, but definitely worth getting up for. It was obviously the same every day, but there was a wide enough choice to have something different on all of the mornings that we ate (we missed one!). Can't understand why it was not worthy of a 4 star, there didn't seem to be anything missing. it is a 10 minute walk to the Gran Via and Sol square, a further 5 minutes walk to Plaza Mayor. There are plenty of good bars and restaurants close to the hotel, and it is approx 1 minute walk from the metro. We found it good value for money.

Room Tip: Our room was to the side of the hotel which was quiet at all times

The front desk clerk was very efficient and friendly. He went out of his way to make our stay there very comfortable. Our bathroom was very spacious and modern. The room was big and well kept. It's got a perfect location right off the Gran Via.
