I have stayed at this hotel twice, once on business and once with family. Simply put this is the best possible location for Madrid as a tourist. It is across the street from the Prado and the Thyssen Bornezema. 5 minutes to the Atocha train station in a taxi or metro. 12 minutes to the Puerta Del Sol, and 15 minutes to the Plaza Mayor and Mercado San Miguel. It is maybe 20 minutes to the heart of La Latina. It is a grand old hotel with fully updated rooms with great bathrooms and plasma tvs. Wifi works well here. The buffet breakfast is pricey but elegant and great for choice. The ballroom they have it in is spectacular and a great way to start the day. There are many great Bars and tapas joints within 5 minutes walk. There is even a Starbucks built into the front side of the building.
