Travelled here in May 2014 by myself and booked through BA Holidays.
I arrived just before a huge bus loads of tourists so was able to check in reasonably quick!
Was given a double/twin room, which was large, up to date decor wise and very clean throughout.
There was a tv in the room but only had one english channel and that was Disney! Not a deal clincher, but its the only hotel I have travelled to in the last 5 years that has had no english news channel! The hotel is located right next to a main and underground train station (Principe Pio) and is only a 10 minute walk to Plaza Espana and Gran Via, and looks across at the Royal Palace. This is a great hotel to base yourself.
Warning!! I looked at the reviews about this hotel which were favourable - but quite a few mentioned noise! Firstly the floors in all the rooms are wooden, so you hear everyone at the side of you and above walking around their rooms at all times. Additionally, for some reason the mass of tourists that congregate in the corridors outside room is incredible. I stayed 2 nights and got no more than an hours sleep each night. I spoke to a german couple at breakfast and they stated they had not slept in 5 nights! Breakfast by the way was reasonable but the scrambled eggs were freezing cold!
I try to be as honest as I can and do not like to give negative views, however I cam home exhausted as I could not get any sleep. Also be aware the amount of children running up and down the corridors at midnight!!
