Great location near Plaza Del Sol and the Metro. Stayed on three different occasions, in three different rooms, in September 2018. Tiny, tiny rooms and bathrooms. Air-conditioning good, beds comfy but small, very clean rooms and bathrooms, and quiet. No views from rooms.

Disgusting customer service and an awfully managed hotel. Lady at reception is rude, incapable and lazy. Definitely do not come here, would not advise. Boyfriend and I were given the wrong room, and were refused a refund or room change

"Room 201 looks out onto Calle Carretas but is immediately beside reception which was slightly noisy at times."
"Rooms at the back are quieter but appear to be smaller"
"Ask for a quiet room if important"
"Ask for street view. Better windows in these."
"don't expect roomy and big, but the rooms are clean, very functional and nothing beats the location! You can be steps away from everything and yet get a good night sleep in a quiet, clean place where everything works (AC, wifi etc) and the staff is really nice. "
