We booked the hotel on a recommendation by a local business partner. Our stay was a mix of business and recreation.
We did ask for a "quiet room, non smoking". Upon checking in, everything looked perfect, although we were on a smoking floor. But the room was nice and very spacious.
The first night we had a lot of noise around 4-6am as our room was obvioulsy very close to the employees wardrobe or some other service room. The next day we asked for a more quiet room
and this was no problem. The new room was a bit smaller, higher floor, but smoking room again. Anyway, the initial smoking smell we covered quickly with our own (my wife's nice perfume) and the following two nights we slept without problem.
The internet service is a bit old fashioned. We had the internet included in our package, but we had to ask for a new access and re-enter the code every 24 hours. And it allowed only one work-station to be active simultaneously... That was a little disturbing....
The pool-area is located in an inner court-yard with a very nice pool-restaurant. Food is good and a pleasant location for evening drinks. The fitness centre is well equiped, clean and spacious.
The staff at the recpetion and room-cleaning are all very friendly and helpful. In the pool-restaurant we experienced everything, from top friendly to a rather arrogant and ignorant treatment by probably the most beautiful girl in Madrid (at least she was convinced she is, but she is still very young and will sure learn her lessons....).
The area around the hotel offers many nice restaurants. The city tour bus stops right in front of the hotel.
Overall we liked the hotel a lot ! And our first stay in beautiful Madrid (!) was a very good one.
