I got this hotel on priceline, and for the price, it was a good value. The location really can't be beat. You are within a fifteen minute walk from the Prado and the Reina Sofia art museums, and about the same to the Royal Palace. And if you are into feeling the pulse of the city, you are also really close to the Puerta Del Sol plaza. I was there during the big rallies going on there, so that was definitely worth a stroll.
As for the room itself, well, it was small. The bed took up most of the room, but there was also a small desk right beneath the TV that you could have done a bit of work on I suppose. The bathroom was pretty small, but well equipped, with nice fixtures. Considering I was alone, it wasn't bad. You might get a bit sick of your travel partner if sharing, though.
I had a room on the 5th floor, which I think is the top, looking out onto what I think was a skylight from the restaurant. Not much of a view, but it was more quiet than a room that looked out onto the street. But to be honest, I didn't really feel the street was crazy loud or anything, just a typical urban street. Cars only go in one direction around there, so there isn't a lot of honking.
I would stay here again if I got a good rate. The wifi was free, and the service polite if not outstanding. If you're looking for a convenient option on a quick trip to Madrid, you should at least consider this one.
