My family and I stayed at this location in early July. The staff was very helpful, our flights from Canada were cancelled which meant we weren't going to arrive on our booked arrival day, they kindly changed our reservation to extend it. As everyone has mentioned it is on top of the subway, which was helpful since the day we arrived the taxi's were on strike. It was easy to take the bus/subway, except for the stairs with all our luggage. We took the subway every where if it wasn't within walking distance. There is a grocery store across the street and a bakery for fresh bread. We cooked several dinners in our room which was a huge cost savings. Coming from Canada we found eating out quite costly compared to home, especially for the size of the meals. Added on that we are used to eating dinner by 6pm, not 8 or 9pm.
The only downside, which I realize is no fault of the hotel is the noise. We were on the 4th floor but I found the locals to be extremely loud from the restaurants/bar/cafe below. Children that are allowed to scream at the top of their lungs until mid-night, people talking/yelling in very loud voices. The hotel provides ear plugs but I cannot use earplugs in my ears. Even the traffic noise was less at night. So I really did not get a good solid nights sleep the entire vacation. I have stayed in other cities in Europe and this hasn't been a problem. Like I said, this is not the fault of the hotel.
Overall I would definitely recommend the hotel, however, something needs to be done to soundproof the rooms better. I did notice that several other travelers had similar comments. Thank you for a fantastic holiday in Spain for our family!
