“Great base for the half marathon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived. Perfect and quick check in. Nice rooms with modern furniture. The hotel placed in our rooms a good luck note for the race a t shirt and 2 Gatorades, great detail. On top, we had a free until 2 pm check out which when you run is critical. Staff very friendly. Top experience

I chose this hotel because they offer double rooms for single use at a very reasonable rate. The rooms were lovely , my bathroom was big and had everything I needed. The metro is steps away and you are not too far from the centre of Madrid, on a Sunday you are beside Retiro for a walk. If I went again I would just walk into Sol too and experience the streets.
I can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants comfort at a lower price but doesn't mind being out of the buzz of central Madrid.

Gran Hotel Colon (Pez Velador 1-11, 28007 Madrid) is part of the Ayre group. It´s on the outskirts of Madrid just a few minutes’ walk from the Sainz de Baranda metro station. It provides a tranquil base for a city break in Madrid. This four star hotel has a café, restaurant & bar. We paid €9 each extra for breakfast that was well worth the money. It was a buffet breakfast that catered for both Spanish & English – if you went away hungry then it was your own fault! The public areas were comfortably & pleasantly furnished. We were very pleased with our room which was a basic double but was very comfortable & spacious. It was at the back of the hotel so was very quiet. They were very generous with the extras in the bathroom such as bath gel etc. The staff were very friendly & efficient. They were happy to help when we asked them about places to visit. I felt it was my second home. We booked direct with the hotel by phone which we found was cheaper than booking on line. We are looking forward to our next visit.

After reading the reviews and checking out the website I was a little disappointed with our hotel. I wasn't thrilled with the location but the metro is a few blocks away, so that was a big plus. The service was not the best, for example we requested an iron which only arrived an hour later after three phone calls and a visit to the front desk. The rooms were also smaller than I expected but clean. The lobby and sitting areas were the nicest part of the hotel and were exactly as photographed. I would recommend this hotel for a brief stay, but with the service and room star would not classify it as 4 star.

This hotel hotel has been continually updated and revamped since its construction c 1970. The rooms are well appointed and I found the bed to be delightful, despite the previous reviewer's comments. It is a bit out of the city center, north of Retiro, but the Metro stop is quite close.

Rooms are modern, hotel is nice and clean.
Breakfast was basic but good, fresh juice and great coffee.
BUT a hotel is all about getting a good rest, this is where they fail, low quality beds, too hard to get a good sleep.
Cleaning service woke me up 3 times, even with the DO NOT DISTURB sign...
