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.
