We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at the Unico towards the end of June 2012.
I was initially concerned about the location, but needn’t have worried as it’s very pleasant 20 minute walk to Grand Via, or just 5 minutes to the nearest metro (Madrid’s metro is clean, efficient and relatively cheap). It’s also very close to the Park Del Retiro.
The hotel is in Salamanca neighbourhood, which is a nice upmarket area with lots of high end shops and a decent selection of restaurants. We had absolutely no noise issues (we’d booked a garden room, but were upgraded to a junior suite at check-in which overlooked the (quiet) road outside).
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was huge. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, but a very quick and efficient room service provided tea and coffee for us each morning (free of charge – or at least I don’t recall seeing a charge for it on the bill).
Our suite had a large bathroom. Twin sinks, large walk-in shower, separate Jacuzzi bathtub and separate toilet/bidet area.
Plenty of towels. Good dressing gowns provided.
Nice turn-down service with bottles of water.
We didn’t have breakfast at the hotel or go to the hotel’s 2 Michelin starred restaurant.
We did have drinks in the hotel’s garden on a couple of occasions though. A lovely setting and a fantastic place to have a drink before going out for the evening (or when returning after a meal).
I would highly recommend this hotel – perfect location, fantastic service and superb rooms – definitely 5 star.
