We loved this place... right on Gran via, we could walk to everything. The hop-on-hop-off stop is just steps away from the entrance too and a good way to tour the city.
Even before we arrived, we had lots of questions and emailed the hotel a few times. Their service was excellent and we got helpful answers back the same day. Good recommendations, they even made a restaurant reservation for us.
Tip: Note that the hotel has a shuttle pick up (free!) from the airport at fixed times, on level 1 (downstairs .. in case you get lost like us). We didn't notice, but again in one of the responses from the hotel to us they pointed it out. Saved us a taxi fare.
What amazed us also (perhaps it was our room, 701) was that the hustle and bustle on the noisy street was completely masked with a peace and quiet in the room. It looked into an interior court so it was a little dim in terms of light, but it was just perfect for us to get to bed and sleep great while the city that never sleeps could make as much noise as it wanted. From what I could tell, all the rooms and windows were new and heavy gauge/solid so I think these were also soundproofed.
The people at reception, the hotel, the bed, the bathroom, the overall room .. .everything was new, and fantastic. No complaints and a 5* review.
Another tip: go up to the top floor and look around the terrace/balcony/lounge. We missed this until the last day, but it would be an excellent place to get a good view of Via Grande.
