This hotel is in a perfect location for Madrid sightseeing and close to the many restaurants and tapas bars of Plaza de Santa Ana. It had a complete renovation just over 6 months ago so the interior has a very fresh and modern appearance. The room we had wasn’t overly large but was well set out, the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower powerful. It overlooked the inner courtyard so was very quiet. The only problem was that the room was so dark, lit by a series of little spot lights that where impossible to apply my make-up under. There was a sort of dressing table, but the TV was positioned over this, the mirror was alongside the bed so to enable me to style my hair I had to unplug one of the valued bedside lights so I could plug in my straighteners and sit on the floor to style. Apart from this I would recommend this hotel.
All the staff we spoke to were extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival the receptionist gave us a map and highlighted places that he thought would be of interest. We arrived at 10 pm and asked if he could recommend a place to eat, the tapas bar/restaurant was perfect for first night fuelling –in fact we returned there again another night.
We didn’t have breakfast in the hotel as it seemed expensive; we didn’t need to as there was a fantastic bakery/café over the road that offered a breakfast deal of coffee, juice and a large pastry for €3.25, but other choices were endless and are making me hungry thinking about it now!
Another plus for this hotel is that, if possible, they offer a late room checkout; until 3pm for €30 and until 6pm for €40 – as our return flight was at 9.50pm we took advantage of this.
