Stayed here two nights. This is an well-run, relaxing hotel in a good location. The street is just beyond the bustling centre of Madrid, which is actually an advantage if you like a bit of peace while you sleep. You can walk to all the main attractions (Prado, El Centro, Retiro Park) in about 20 minutes - alternatively there are 2 metro stops nearby. There are restaurants and bars in Plaza Santa Barbara (just over the Via Sagasta and round the corner), and many more if you walk southwards from there into the Chueca district.
The room was very comfortable, a decent size, and very clean. Bathroom was immaculate, with a powerful shower. We were on the first floor, but were not bothered by street noise - there is double glazing and air conditioning, and, a big plus - you can open the window fully and air the room. I don't understand the comments on this site about noise from other rooms - we didn't hear anything. There is a bar on the ground floor open until 11 at night (though weekend hours change a bit). The desk staff are helpful and polite. Breakfast is expensive - we went out for it.
My only reservation would be that the hotel has an anonymous feel, but generally this is a good place for a relaxing stay in a busy city.
One tip: if you are coming on metro from Atocha station, get out at Bilbao, rather than Alfonso Martinez - it is a slightly longer walk from the metro, but you will avoid having to change lines and drag your cases up and down stairs etc.
