“Very central”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Stayed here for a few nights as part of a Riviera Tours holiday.Can't beat the location,you can walk to most of the main streets,plazas and museums within 15 mins.Many good restaurants and bars nearby.Our room was at the back looking on to another wall of the hotel but correspondingly it was very quiet, and clean.In any case,we only really slept there.Didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast which provided a good choice including tortilla which I just had to eat!Staff were very pleasant and although I can speak reasonable Spanish did not notice any problems with them talking English to other members of our party.Only down side(which didn't bother us)might be for those who expect to "swim"in the roof pool.It is actually a big bath.But I don't think many people go to Madrid to laze around a pool,

This 4 star hotel is centrally located facing the famous Gran Via street and at walking distance to bars, cafés and shopping. Friendly staff and clean rooms make it a good choice for your stay in Madrid. The triple room is spacious and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again.

This hotel has a great location, within walking distance to most shopping and tourist attractions. The bus back to the airport leaves from the end of Gran Via, a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

I have stayed in better 3 star hotels. The room was compact, dark and a bit musty smelling. The bed was large and comfortable though.

We didn't eat in the hotel and cannot comment on that. However, we had a drink in the lobby bar. Some work could be done to make it more inviting and atmospheric.

Overall the staff were friendly. If this hotel charged 3 star prices I would return. I just don't think that it's worth the rates.

a great weekend so much achieved in a short time but still left eating to return and continue to see the thing s didn't have time to do
A great location. Just a short walk and you are in the centre of Madrid - Puerto del Sol where shops and restaurants are plentiful .Rooms and Bathroom a little tired but functional and it wasn't a big problem Clean and service was fine Breakfast was varied in choice buffet style which enabled the very hungary to go back for more than one visit to the pastries but there was everything you could want Both hot and cold.
The city itself was just a short walk away. Plaza de Mayor offers a wonderful ambience and again variety of cafes to sit and sip wine , beer or martini rosso. Plenty to observe So much street theatre, people watching and everyone appeared to be enjoying the temperature . Nor far away San Miguel Mercado - a great place for an aperitif before going out for the evening a little tapas , some cava or beer all available before heading to wealth of restaurants or even nightclubs
A great place for a weekend

Room Tip: we went for a room at the back with a sun terrace it was supplemented but it was useful as there was...

To be fair you get what you pay for and maybe a bit more if the suns out and you can enjoy the top floor swimming pool.. If going in a winter month I would avoid, or at least check that the spa facilities are all available and have had recent maintenance work done on them as this was not the case last week (specifically, jacuzzi not working and paint peeling off the walls in the steam room).

First the good points. The room was excellent, overlooking the Grand Via and both spacious and clean. Good bathroom and efficient air conditioning.Secondly, the location is ideal and all the main Madrid sights are within easy walking distance. We had one evening meal which was very good and quite reasonably priced. However, breakfast was nothing short of a disaster on all four mornings. The food was consistently mediocre, the service poor, and the coffee making facilities were unbelievably bad. Of greater concern however, was the lack of hotel security. Three individuals walked in on one evening, sat down at a table for a few moments, and then disappeared with one of the guest's handbags. The hotel administration would accept no responsibility whatsoever. Potential guests should bare in mind that the hotel is less than a block away from a red light area. Definitely not four star.

Estimado Adian: Muchas gracias por tus comentarios en tripadvisor. Siento que nuestro servicio de desayunos no haya colmado tus expectativas, seguiremos trabajando para mejorar cada día. En referencia al robo que comenta ha de saber que es un caso aislado y que se denunció a la policía. Por parte del hotel se asistió a los clientes en todo momento y existen grabaciones que ya han sido entregadas a la policía. Le envío un cordial saludo.
