I stayed at this hotel for a few days with friends ( 12 of us) and was a bit concerned from the reviews and photographs that we were in for a rough few days, however we were pleasantly surprised on arrival. The hotel is very basic and budget, but with the wonders of Madrid to explore and the plethera of bars and restaurants in the area to visit, you are basically just wanting somewhere relatively clean and comfortable to use as a base to sleep and shower in. The rooms were very small and the bathroom you couldnt swing a cat in, however they were clean and well attended. The bed itself was not the best and slightly on the small side, but as I said, after a long day of exploring Madrid all you need is somewhere to put your head down at the end of the night.The location was definitely the Highlight, just off Gran Via, far enough away from all the tourists, but close enough if you want to go for a shop. The area is full of bars and cafes and piazzas you would need weeks to attend them all there were so many. The staff wre as helpful as they could be, as my spanish and their english was not the best, but we seemed to be able to muddle our way through any requests. This wouldnt suit everyone as it is quite budget, and at times the street noise was a bit out of control, but if you are an explorer and adventurer who would rather spend money on shopping, eating, drinking etc then I can definitely recommend this hotel.
