Excellent location and very warm and helpful front desk staff. Room and bathroom large and well appointed. Certainly a good place to stay whenever you are in Madrid. We certainly will the next time we visit.

Room Tip: Good place for breakfast is a couple of doors to the right, between the hotel and the close metro st...

Hotel rooms were amazing. Large ceilings, lots of space and modern. Good location in Madrid. Staff were professional and courteous. I did not eat here but it looked like a nice space. Hotel more suited to a base for exploring city rather than a place to hang out or relax.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with friends

Stayed for 3 nights in January with friends on a City Break. It's firstly an excellent location, just round the corner from Plaza Santa Anna which is a great place for tapas bars and restaraunts! Mercado de San Miguel is also just 5 mins walk away, with other places like Prado and Royal Palace just 10 mins walk away. All round a super location. Pleasant and courteous staff too. Rooms were all very clean and tidy with good sized bathroom and power shower. Comfy beds. Hotel also has gym n jacuzzi but didn't utilise these facilities. I would recommend and would stay here again Just need better weather next time!

this is my 3 time around in Madrid, i stayed before at westin palace and Hesperia Madrid, and this hotel is by far my favorite!!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
thuis hotel is 5 min from Plaza mayor and puerta del sol so you will be walking distance to many bars, restaurants and shops, is also very close to atocha station we tooked a taxi beacuse is was rainign and it was 5 euros.
the area is very nice and pretty! we loved it! is across the street to plaza de santa ana! great nigth spot and very nice bars and hotels around as well.
the rooms:
we had a triple room with a little balcony facing atocha street, is was very quite at night and the beds where GREAT!!!!
the bathroom was big and very comfy, great shower! after a day of walking in the cold....
service was very good: Irene at front desk was very nice and always ready to awser our questions and needs, osmany at the bar was also GREAT!!!
you cant go wrong with this hotel, great rooms, great service, great location!!
im a very picky hotel person, and this one meet all my expectations and more, i will go back to this hotel anytime!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony and atocha view, worth the $25 more for the upgrade.

It's firstly an excellent location, just round the corner from Plaza Santa Anna which is a great place for tapas bars and restaraunts! Mercado de San Miguel is also just 5 mins walk away, with other places like Prado and Royal Palace just 10 mins walk away. All round a super location. The staff were all very pleasant and courteous too. Rooms were all very clean and tidy and recently renovated. Beds very comfy too. The bar wasn't too inviting but then again there are plenty on your doorstep. I would definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

Good hotel very close to Party Place Santa Ana. Also very close to Atocha train station. Walking distance to Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Thai restaurants.

The bar is not so nice, very standard, not coisy.

The reception is good and fast.

The gym is very good too, they have a threadmill of LifeFitness, good quality. The TV in the gym had some problem...

Room Tip: I had room on first floor that overlooked the Patio...

Had a last minute business trip to Madrid and found this hotel based on other reviewers.
Ground-floor room when I checked in, so thought it may be very loud especially since you pass through the "bar" area on the way to the room. Happily surprised that it was absolutely quiet.

The room itself is very modern, very nice with a great big shower and lots of space to really spread out in. For the price, you really can't do much better. It's really close to a lot of the main tourist sites in Madrid.

Front desk is super helpful, speaks great English if you need it.
