This is a fresh and well equipped hotel. Rooms are comfortable and there is free wifi. It is walking distance to all the key sites but Calle de Atocha is a very busy and unattractive road. We looked out onto two very run down hostels opposite. Rooms are triple glazed so not noisy. There are much prettier squares in the immediate vicinity such as Santa Anna where most of the local restaurants are.
For good quality shopping don't bother with the area north of Sol up to Gran Via, better to go to Calle de Goya in Salamanca area.
Breakfast at hotel was excellent and there is a small gym with cardio equipment and a jacuzzi. Service and people very pleasant. When we arrived they gave us an offer on the breakfast.
