“5 out of 5 - stunning hotel!”
Reviewed 16 October 2009

After spending a week hotel-hopping in Madrid (see my previous reviews) I was keen to find a good solid hotel to stay at for my second week - and boy did I find a hidden gem.

Sure you come to Trip Advisor and it has four reviews, all glowing, and you think they can't all be real, but they honestly are. This hotel, opened on the 1st of September is absolutely stunning value for money, with the Executive room with additional work/lounge area currently 74 euros a night, that's 50% less than the best rate I could get at Hilton over the road.

So at that price I was cautious, but keen to get there and see what its like, the bus picked me up at 9pm from the Barajas airport, and I was checked in and in my room by 9:45. What a room it was too! On the 4th floor my room was an excutive room, with a full size 4 seater dining table for me to work at in the evenings.

The bed was large, comfortable (which is Spain is seemingly rare) and the sheets were crisp white and comforting. The lights all round the room were energy saving and well placed, the room was laminated throughout and there was very little noise coming from other rooms, mainly only the heavy weight doors which could close a little softer.

The bathroom was excellent, with plenty of additional packs of toiletries available in case you had left anything behind - the shower was a dual header unit in a large walk-in glass enclosure.

The room overall had plenty of space, nice, clean and comfortable - bigger than the one I stayed in at the Hilton a week previously. The Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, quite quick and very stable - it worked everywhere I went and was really nice to see this hotel avoiding the bandwagon of 10+ euros a day for internet access.

The hotel is quite traditional in the kitchen rules, with dinner, room service and bar food not being served till 8:30pm, but at least it was through till 12 midnight. The breakfast was 15 euros per person, with plenty of choice and fresh bakery products each day. Plenty of fresh fruit and plenty of staff around to help.

Highly recommended, I just hope the hotel keeps up the standards, its easily well ahead of the Hilton and with the taxi rank outside very useful for the business traveller.

Ok, I am in the hotel business and am not easily impressed but this new hotel ticked every box for me !
The design is amazing ! Just sit in the lounge and see lots of people taking pictures of it !
The staff service is very good, clearly well trained.
The rooms are large, funky and very very clean.
The car parking is on site and easy to access
The only fault I have is that the dining room is characterless, however the snacks are great !
Its pointless writing much more because in all honesty its a hotel that I can 100% recommend.
I suspect rates will rocket as its popularity increases

According to the assistant manager, this hotel just opened September 1, 2009. It has very modern & bright decor, and everything looks and smells new!
Its location close to Madrid's Barajas airport along with free transport provided on their new mini buses departing every half hour were deciding factors in giving this hotel a try.
The entry and lobby is very spacious with a parking garage below level. Three large elevators are available. Staff was friendly & check in was swift.
Our room was comfortable with good individual climate control. There is a refrigerator containing refreshments. The shower stall in the bathroom is extra large!
The cyber-room available to guests did not yet have the free internet accessable computers set up, but the hotel manager let me use his computer to access the internet from his office. Said he has received the cyber room equipment which should be set up in about a week. We did not try out the free wifi said to be accessable from our room.
Did not have a chance to try out their spa/exercise center.
The hot breakfast buffet had a wide variety of offerings and is located in a large dining room.
The trip to terminal T1 at the airport took about 10 minutes. They also offered free transport to the Convention Center.
Total price for the double was 69 euros, breakfast included. Cab fare to the hotel from the Renfe Chamartin train station was 18 euros.
