Definitely the worst 4-star hotel I've ever stayed in. The TV was unwatchable. The bathroom door was unlockable. The connection to the free-wifi was terrible. The water pressure was very weak and the shower nozzle couldn't be fixed onto the wall for showering. And one of the most ridiculous thing to share about is that our room wasn't even at the same building as the hotel lobby. Our room was at another building next to the hotel without any doorman downstairs during night time.

I took a while to chose a hotel and mainly went with this one because of the location and the reviews! We managed to get a very good deal which included a very extensive breakfast choice. The hotel has a main building and an annex next door. On our first night we were in annex because main building was full. We asked to be moved to the main building the next morning which was accommodated no problem - and we had a very nice room. We found the staff to be very helpful. It is a 5 minutes walk to main shopping/restaurant area of GranVia and 2 different […] metro stations - which were handy for getting around Madrid and surrounding areas.

I would certainly return to this hotel in the future.

We stayed at this hotel in March 2013 on a Saturday and Sunday night. The room was very very hot, with the air con either disabled or not working. The outside temperature was 5 degrees. Our foldaway bed wasn't made up with sheets, and we only had one towel, when we needed three. It took three phone calls to reception to sort it. The main bed was firm and comfy, the sofabed was soft and lumpy. The hotel is what it is, good location, cheap, average condition. Just don't require anything from the staff...

stayed at el colosso madrid for two nights. coming by metro from madrid barajas airport, take the exit c. leganitos at plaza de espanha metro station. behind the gran via street, is absolutely great location. few steps from restaurants, shops, walking distance from the royal palace, plaza de sol, plaza mayor, etc. we stayed in a building beside the main building. good size of the room and very warm. the room was faced the street, and was a bit too noise. didn't get breakfast at the hotel (8euro per person), but you are literaly few steps from gran via, with a large selection of options for typical spanish breakfast!

Dirty walls, it appears that someone played football inside the room. Bathroom without bidet. Very tight access to toilet. Bad interior finishes. Good reception. The price was OK.
But definitely not a 4 star hotel.

I recently stayed at this hotel for four nights. The staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the location of the hotel was very centrally located to many sights in the city. There was a subway station 2 blocks on either side of the hotel and more importantly at least for me.....a Starbucks 1 minute down the block.
Overall, great place to stay. Good price and safe. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the back of the hotel. Next time will ask for the front even though it may be a little n...
