“Wonderful hotel in a wonderful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

I booked a last minute weekend trip to Madrid with my mum as ...well ... sometimes you just need to get away and it was brilliant.
The hotel is stunning and has a wonderful terrace where you can sit and just watch the world go by. The staff were very friendly and ready to help with any queries or requests that you had.

the hotel is located on Gran Via which is basically in the heart of Madrid. All the major Tourist attractions were either within walking distance or on the route of the hop on hop off tourist bus which stopped two minute walk up the road.

I would whole heartily recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit a truly wonderful city. will definitely return, !!!

Hello Victoria2619.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I am delighted to note that you and your mum enjoyed your stay with us. Most of all though I am especially pleased that you enjoyed the service provided by our staff I always feel is the most important and lasting memory of a hotel.

Finally thanks for the compliments to our city and your recommendations to other travelers.

Warmest regards,

We stayed here for 7 nights during August and we were not disappointed. My wife is a wheelchair user and we requested this during the booking process (as they advised) when I checked the week before via email I had a prompt response back saying they had allocated us an adapted room.
The room was spacious, clean, air conditioned and a huge bathroom with a wheel in shower (with removable seat), adjustable height sink, toilet with grab rails and Bidet. There were alarm buttons throughout the room and bathroom. Take note, however, that the bathroom floor is tiled and can be very slippery when wet. The wardrobe had a pull down clothes rail so my wife could reach independently. The Bed was very comfortable and the sheets were changed everyday, and every other day we had chocolates left by the housekeeping staff. We had an room that was inward looking so basically looked out on an enclosed courtyard so the room was dark but this didn't matter to us as it meant we could get plenty of sleep! At the bottom of the courtyard was a fountain to make it look nicer, no one has access to the fountain it is decorative and a nice little touch.
There was free WiFi throughout the hotel, not just in certain areas, it always worked and was a decent speed.
Breakfast - if you are looking for a hotel that will serve a "Full English" then you will be disappointed, they had bacon, small sausages, fried, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, with Ketchup and a toaster but we didn't eat any of this. We went for the wonderful continental buffet with fresh rolls, pastries, meats and cheeses. There was also fresh and dried fruit with a selection of Yoghurts. Coffee is via a machine - if you simply select Black Coffee you will get an Espresso if you want a normal sized cup select filter coffee. If you want Tea simply ask one of the friendly staff (Usually 2 on) and they will make you a pot and bring it to you.
On the 9th floor there is a small "Business centre" (more of a meeting room) but there is a lot of space to sit around, talk and relax. There are also 2 small terraces with great views over the city, both terraces have steps leading up to them but if you ask the bar staff (Bar opens at 3:30pm) they will get a portable ramp to allow wheelchair users to access the terraces. On one occasion a cleaner even got the ramp for us! The bar isn't that cheap but also not overpriced, they will bring drinks out to you on the terraces and you can bill your room. There are communal toilets on the 9th floor but sadly not a communal disabled toilet.
99% of the staff we met were very helpful, one in particular "Cloy" who we met doing the upstairs bar and breakfast spoke excellent English and was always very helpful. Nothing was ever a problem for the reception staff, we spoke to them once about a broken remote for the air conditioning and they said they would get it sorted and they did. We booked a flamenco show through them and the lady on reception (forgotten her name) recommended one that had street access (easier for my wife) she rang them up and translated everything for us, found out they had a side entrance with a ramp! When she saw us the next day she asked how the show was and whether there were any problems. When we checked out I asked if I could store our bags for a few hours and it was simply not a problem. We went back about an hour later and asked for a taxi to the airport, when he asked what terminal and I went to find my boarding pass he asked what airline to save me a job. He walked out with our suitcase, got a taxi for us and made sure we got in it ok.
The whole hotel has been decorated to a very high standard and it felt very luxurious from the moment you walked through the door and it wasn't very expensive.
The Location was excellent, Plaza del Sol is about 3 minutes away, Plaza Mayor about 10 minutes, and Santa Anna about 10 minutes.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to go to Madrid for any reason, and if you are a disabled traveller then this hotel will look after you!
I can see why this hotel is rated so highly on tripadvisor it really is excellent as the title says it is the finer details that make this hotel so good.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 6th floor and the room was inward facing with little natural light which didn't...

We were greeted in a friendly manner and made to feel welcome immediately. Our room was upgraded and we stayed one night in a large, sunny room with a beautifully appointed very large bathroom. Rooms are clean and entire hotel is very well kept. Shower pressure was great! Room was quiet throughout stay. Location very good. Breakfast room sunny and inviting. Roof lounge is beautiful. Personal service and excellent dinner and touring information from staff. Recommended if you want a personal touch and don't want or need the large hotel amenities.

Perfect spot in central Madrid. Spacious, comfortable bedroom and modern updated bath. Fantastic really, we had no complaints. Great location walkable to museums and to tapas bars and the mercado, which we loved. I will definitely go back to this hotel for our next trip to Madrid. Overall, a fantastic stay. The only minor drawback was that breakfast was just so-so. I was expecting something better. Not a deal breaker.

We stayed here for 3 nights and with the reviews, we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. We had upgraded our room to a suite and we were wowed by the finish and the quality. It was quiet and a very high standard.

Location was perfect and the hotel public areas were luxurious. We don't usually spend this much on city breaks but it was a gift for my husband for his 30th birthday so it was a special occasion. We would definitely consider staying again.

My husband has traveled all over Europe and it was my first time here so naturally, he started telling me at the time of booking that European hotels are not at par to North American hotels. So, when I booked this hotel, he was amazed! He loved that it had European flare but was very up to date as well. The rooms were clean and modern. The front desk staff was friendly and booked our Flamenco night for us. It is close to everything and shopping as well. Tapas bars all around. The taxi cabs are very familiar with this hotel so it's helpful that it is well known and popular. The rooms are sound proof so we couldn't hear the noise from the streets. Loved my stay!
