I stayed here four nights in June while participating at a conference. The hotel was nice, very clean, and the rooms were huge, end the bed comfy! So were the bathrooms, as there were kind of two bathrooms in the room. The breakfast was lovely with really all sort of choices, and everything was marked according to how healthy/unhealthy they were. There were different sorts of fresh berries and fresh fruits every morning.
There was a quite nice pool area there also, which I never reached to test out.
The hotel is a big conference hotel, and quite a distance from the city center and the old town. Perhaps 30-40 minutes by taxi. There was a Metro station quite nearby, and one of the lines was straight to the old town. The Spanish staff working at hotel was very nice, but very unorganized, so you really need to have plenty of time when checking in and out e.g. I also missed an opportunity to make a cup of coffee in the room, and a free or at least cheaper Wireless network at the hotel. It was 240 Euro for 4 days.
If I was staying in Madrid just for Holiday I think I would have stayed closer to the old city
