Location is nice as you can see the Royal Palace and garden across the street. If you take one of those day trips and your company happened to start from nearby Plaza de Oriente, it is even better.

This hotel was very nice, centrally located right across the street from the Royal palace with plenty of nearby restaurants and tapas bars and sights. The reception people speak pretty good English and the room was very good and quiet even though it was on the road side of the hotel. There was a very nice restaurant in the hotel...

Clean and nice hotel. Good breakfast, great location and friendly staff. Only negative was thin walls and the fact that you had to explicitly ask for the room to be cleaned. Would definitelt consider staying again.

Older style hotel. Good value and great location relative to main tourist attractions in Madrid. Walking distance to Royal Palace, Plaza de Espana, Prada museum, Naval museum, Parque de el Retiro. Room was comfortable but facilities are outdated. Service was efficient.
