“Great location. Modern. Perfect!”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

This hotel is in a great location close to the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, and Puerta del Sol. The metro stop Opera is a 3 minute walk. There is a 24 hr shop nearby to get fruits, snacks, bottled water, etc.

The room was clean, super modern, we had a balcony in room 219. Bathroom size was excellent, very spacious.

Love it.

Why it does not get a 5 then? Because the room was a bit small and it had no view (you could only see a wall nearby). But, the room is very beautiful, modern with all the necessary amenities and extremely clean. The staff have been very helpful and they even made a booking for us at the Hard Rock, which from my experience, in other countries this is imposible. But the best of all is the location. It is located next to the "opera" underground station and is only 2 minutes walk from the palace, plaza de Mayor and another market I cannot recall that is not open, with amazing food. I definitely recommend this hotel!!!

Don't be fooled by the small exterior - a nice size hotel with funky decor, good size rooms and the staff are friendly and give good local advice

We stayed here for 3 nights end of June 2011 and we were really pleased with the hotel. For the web price we got for booking early, we were a little nervous that it was going to be too budget but we were very pleasantly surprised. The trendy interior was fun. Our bathroom was large and modern. We had no exterior windows but our room felt spacious and light. We did wonder if it was going to be noisy at night as we heard a few noises from the corridor during the day but we had fantastic sleeps there each night and didn't wake up one morning til 10am! It is on a charming street, very near to the Opera Metro station, and just a short 2 minute walk to Plaza de Oriente etc. We walked everywhere in Madrid and even to the art galleries and Plaza St Ana are it was only a 15 - 20 min pleasant stroll. There was a lovely wine bar and restaurant a few doors up from Mario which we went to a few times... good menu of the day at lunch time.

I was slightly dubious given it's 2 star rating (yes I'm a snob) but that was completely unfounded. The hotel is really cool, has clean, funky rooms (albeit small) and is in a brilliant location. We didn't have a view from our room - but that wasn't overly important since we don't spend much time looking out of hotel windows.

I love the design of the hotel, staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was good value for 6 euros each. Also there is free wifi which came in handy when researching sights and things to do in Madrid. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Madrid.

Good value for money.

Outstanding hotel, only bettered by the staff- astonished it's only 2 stars- I've stayed in 4 star places that are hugely inferior.
Fantastic
Location only- makes Madrid seem like a small town as everything is close by
Would definitely use again
