I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in late September and we were both pleasantly surprised and pleased with it. First of all it's in the best location - near Plaza Mayor, Santa Ana, Puerta del Sol, so everything was within less than 10 minutes walking distance and no time or money was wasted. Museums, restaurants, bars, shopping are all easily accessible from the hotel as is the metro which was about a block or two away. Great cafes nearby including a fantastic pastry shop directly across from the hotel. Rooms were spotless, spacious, bright and clean with nice modern touch as were the bathrooms. We were given a smokers room as there were no nonsmoking rooms available but you wouldn't have known it walking in to our room as the hotel is fairly new. Staff was super nice, accommodating and helpful as we regularly inquired about directions, restaurants, sites, etc. Rooms had wifi but no business center or computer access at the hotel but they did direct me to a great internet cafe 2 blocks away. Highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.
