We booked this hotel per reviews on Trip Advisor. As we arrived late at night we were not that excited. The old doorway to the hotel is chained off and there is a modern swing door that seemed to give off one of those dreadful hotel scents. Which funnily wsa not present in the morning. The room was a different layout to what we thought we were getting. I also thought that the rooms had a coffee machine - maybe it was a figment of my imagination. However, by morning we saw that the patio area was lovely and had it been summer would have been great to nip from there to the shower whilst sunbathing since all the windows opened out from the room to the terrace. We were on the 6th floor in 614. Btw great huge rainforest shower! Bath products were OK nothing amazing but there were slippers and a bathrobe which was nice. Pillows on the bed were not good - more like bolsters, they need to address these. There was a welcome bottle of water and some chocolate covered peanuts nicely packaged. It is a nice hotel and very clean. Very good location as it is 2 mins walk from Anton Martin metro and not far to Atocha station but I wouldn't do that walk with suitcases. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel when we arrived in Madrid but the metro from Atocha station to the airport on the way out, simply, as we had arrived in from Valencia. It is a bit of a trek on a few lines and we should have taken the overground or a taxi as once you get to the airport there is a mega amount of hiking to the check in desks. If you want to save money then the metro is fine but tricky to negotiate. We were offered a deal of 12 euro for breakfast each instead of 16 euro that was quoted when we booked the hotel. 16 euro is ridiculous for breakfast as you can get a whole meal at lunch for way less. 12 euro also a bit over the top but since we were in Madrid for such little time we skipped the hotel and had coffee and croissants out. Wifi was great in the room.
