We stayed in the Mercure Madrid Plaza de Espana for 3 nights recently.
The hotel is old style but maintained quite well.
Old style, how so?
- Old fashioned elevators (2)
- Lobby is a bit on the darker side
- Cool antique looking fixtures in the bathroom
What we liked:
- Room bed: was super comfortable with premium linens and great pillows
- Room sound proofness: Very quiet. Heavy door with innner hallway and second inner door. We never heard anyone.
- Room security: Excellent secure lock on door. The safe was the largest I've ever seen and I could fit my laptop in it easily.
- Cleanliness: Very clean
- Heating / AirCon / Water temp and pressure: All good
- Breakfast: Excellent variety of food choices including fresh cut fruit, yoghurts, whole wheat bread, capuccinos. Best part, staff kept restocking the food....even asking us if we wanted anything else at 11am when the breakfast ends.
- Location: excellent
- Breakfast: oddly they charge extra (2 Euro) for eggs - suggest they could include eggs in the price, as the baccon and other hot items are included.
- Front desk staff: Sometimes seemed to look a bit surly, but once you engaged them in conversation, they seemed to warm up and then they seemed friendly.
- When a renovation is planned, lighter color choices in the lobby would help.
- Excellent value while satisfying our most important considerations
1) Excellent sleep quality in a super quiet room
2) Great breakfast
Note: They stored (for free) a considerable amount of our luggage while we hiked the Camino de Santiago.
