This is an early 20th century neo-traditional building right on Gran Via between the Calleo and Gran Via metro stations. It is near shops, large department stores and movie theatres, restaurants and bars, and is a short walk to the Plaza de la Puerta del Sol. We had booked a large Superior Room online which turned out to be a large, comfortable corner room with very high ceilings and tall windows on two sides that opened onto small balconies. Though priced higher than we prefer to pay, we felt we chose well. The hotel is right on Gran Via but the room was very quiet when roll-down shutters and windows were closed. The room had both adjustable heat and air conditioning. Though my husband found the bed a bit too firm, it was comfortable enough for me. The room also had a desk, two chairs and a small round table. The here was good storage, a safe large enough for laptops, free wifi that worked very well, and good lighting. The bathroom was comprised of 2 rooms. The first had 2 sinks in a long counter and a large tub with 2 types of showers (stationary and handheld). You get to the separate W.C. through this room; the W.C. has it's own door. An ample breakfast is served until 11 a.m. in a spacious though not large room with a very attentive and industrious sala de desayuno staff. A nice feature was the provision of two café machines and two toasters which helped during busier times. There is also an espresso bar, and the staff provided teapots of hot water. Eggs are prepared several ways, and there are the usual meats, rolls, cereals, juices, etc. We found all the staff but one to be very helpful and amiable. The day we checked out, however, a young woman we had not seen before was at the front desk. We stopped to ask about a taxi to the train station and she advised us to go across Gran Via and hail one ourselves. We were not happy about the prospect of crossing busy Gran Via with luggage, especially since the streets were a mess when we were there due to a city-wide garbage strike. But when we got back to the front desk with our luggage one of the older male employees had returned and he immediately went out front and hailed a cab for us. Needless to say, we tipped him as this is the service we expected from a hotel of this class and cost. Some guide books caution people to be careful of areas near here. I found the area generally safe because there were always lots of people on the streets. But be advised that the neighborhood can change quickly and take the usual big city precautions.
