We stayed with friends for four nights when my husband ran the marathon, and had a really lovely weekend. Great location - within walking distance of all the sites, but far enough out of the centre to be a bit quieter and more relaxed.
We arrived a couple of hours early for check-in but were given a room, our friends were asked to wait 15 mins until theirs would be ready. We were all given a complimentary glass of cava while we waited, and the guy on reception gave us a map and leaflets and talked us through the sites and public transport.
Room was lovely; we got a corner room so didn't have an issue with the glass door on the bathroom - the door did not face the bed. The room was spacious and clean and the double-glazing kept out the street noise, we did have a problem with the air-con, it seemed stuck on 24 degrees C which was far too hot, so we just turned it off.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but the food looked great, and very large portions. We did have a number of drinks in the bar and found it very enjoyable, if a little expensive - the bar prices were the same as the minibar.
Some very nice restaurants nearby - particularly loved Patagonia just up Gran Via, the steaks were amazing.
Would definitely recommend this hotel - the location is great, it's very welcoming and the staff are very helpful and accommodating.
