“A brilliant Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

A truly wonderful hotel with warm and welcoming staff who could not do enough for you. We stayed here in early September in a beautiful suite on the top floor.

As this was part of our tour of Spanish cities, we had been very careful in our choice of hotels, yet this hotel was still the best we stayed in by some distance.

If you are looking for a small 5* + hotel this is the place to go in Madrid. We shall return!

If only for the excellent chilled glass of champagne on arrival

Very hip, wonderful mod furnishings. Incredibly kind and helpful staff that figured out how to accommodate our family of four by giving us the room with the fold-out sofa (surprisingly comfy). Very close to the Retiro Park and two great playgrounds within it. Was a great balance of hipster for mom and dad and close to playground for kids.

The only negative is that the pool was very, very small and located in a very tight space in the basement so you couldn't even really hang out by it. It was also pretty warm, so not good for children or much use at all.

Modern, efficient, beautiful old building on the outside. Excellent position opposite the Retiro park an a smart, clean area of Madrid. Had a deluxe room, the design of which was a little "quirky" - very large room but no drawer units for clothes; open plan wardrobe; no desk or obvious place to use/charge laptops etc. However, very comfortable. Breakfast somewhat pricey/ lovely outside terrace.

Great hotel in a fantastic location - very convenient for both metro and walking to nearby locations.

Excellent breakfast (well worth upgrading your room to include this if it isn't already included) and complimentary drinks on arrival were a nice touch. Very courteous and knowledgable staff. Room was very luxurious and bed exceptionnaly comfy.

Only downside was that food in hotel was very expensive (although excellent quality). However there were plenty of nearby places to eat if you didn't want to pay hotel prices.

Loved it and will go back. The room was smallish but had a big open plan bathroom so the overall size was fine. Staff are great and very attentive. The breakfast was nice too but the restaurant is half underground which is a little odd and you can't have it outside on the roadside which would be really nice.

What a jewel. From the friendly and knowledgeable staff to the fun and convenient location (everything walking distance - or 2 stops on the subway) to the cloud of a bed and the combination classic with modern design of the room - WE LOVED THIS PLACE. We cannot recommend it higher.

A pleasant 15 minute walk to the center of everything - and Retiro Park across the street - and Prado a 7 minute direct walk. Also - right next door to a fun restaurant and club (sound proof windows keep the noise out when it is time for sleep). The hotel also has great food and a really fun bar as well.

All in all - this was a fun a city-hotel as you can find. While it might not be a "resort" - it is perfect for Madrid. Comfortable bed, well appointed room and bathroom, free and fast WiFi, everything was just how it should be. We will return to this hotel whenever we are in Madrid - which hopefully will be often.
