The hotel is very handy for the airport bus and literally 2 minutes from the nearest metro station. This combined with a 10 minutes walk to the Guggenheim Museum makes for an excellent location albeit on a busy and noisy plaza. The hotel is full of character and history with some beautiful but slightly fading decor. What lets the hotel down is the non-too friendly front desk staff and almost non-existent concierge which you really wouldn't expect of a hotel of this standard. However the most troublesome point was the lack of appropriate sound proofing having been woken at 4.30 am by the person in the next room running a bath and then splashing around in it for the next 30 minutes.....
