Generally positive but also negatives depending on what's important to your comfort. Good: Wonderful and friendly reception; most staff speak good English; lots of suggestions and advice provided; Location is great if you're needing to access Plaza Espana to join the daily tours with Julia Travel or the Royal Palace. On the other hand: Need to walk uphill (steep) if wanting to go to Gran Via where the shops are; Cleanliness on check in was ok on the surface; closer look, the chairs and dining table and the shelves at the kitchenette and fridge could have done with a more through cleaning, the cleaning of the rooms on subsequent days is hit and miss; The street outside hotel is seedy as others have mentioned with nothing much going on except a few shops that you really don't want to shop from; The convenience store near hotel do not stock really quality fresh items; Missing utensils in the kitchenette, had to ask for wine glasses, did not bother requesting for others since did not plan to cook; The complimentary tea is not replenished daily. The studio apartment we had for three persons came with a sofa bed, unfortunately the sofa bed is narrow against most normal standard making for a very straight style of sleeping! Easy to fall out if you turn. Also, the elevator is not directly at lobby level. So, if you have really heavy bags you will need help. Luckily, the staff is good about this if they see you have difficulty and helped to carry it up to elevator level. I'm not convinced that it is a short walk to other sights further than the royal palace as first you have to walk uphill. It's another 15 mins easily to the San Miguel markets and plaza mayor. Actually, we caught a cab each time to get to those places. And it was around 4-8 euro one way depending on traffic. Saves time and energy better spent on actually walking the sights.
