We stayed for six nights on the front and back end of our trip. It was ideally located and very quiet. It is a very short walk from the Cercanias stop (Recoletos) from the airport (2.50 E), not too far from attractions and near many nice restaurants. In particular, the restaurant El Borbollon on Calle Recolletos just north of the hotel was outstanding. We went twice. La Cesta at #10 nearby is also nice, as was (oddly enough) the New York Burger virtually next door. There are several other places to eat on the same street and many places near the Porte Alcala just south of the hotel. Mallorca on Calle de Serrano is perfect for pastries, an early dinner, or people-watching. It is somewhat like a smaller version of Fauchon in Paris.
The hotel is modern, extremely quiet in the rooms, and had a very helpful front desk staff. The one major oddity is that the bathroom is actually more of an opaque glass box. So, one must be very familiar with one's roommate or it would be awkward. We had a small issue with the temporary staff in the bar and the desk resolved this immediately. There is live music in the lobby almost once a week, which we enjoyed immensely.
We walked to most major attractions or used taxis when the temperature was high. There are numerous taxis that pass by the hotel. I almost selected the 4 star property across from Retiro and am pleased that I selected this hotel instead. The location was vastly superior. We stayed on the third and first floors(108 and 309) and had no problem with noise. Colleagues staying at the same time stayed on the fifth floor and remarked that it was quiet as well.
