Right on Gran Via next to bars, shops and restaurants, you really couldn't ask for much more than this.
The lobby was immaculate (although sometimes too busy because of Internet users, but I'll come onto that later) Rooms were clean and well presented, staff friendly and helpful and the pool area on the roof (with its views) was amazing!
As described, this hotel is within a very short walk of the city's main attractions and there is even an open topped tour bus stop right opposite.
This really is a superb hotel in a superb city!
However, there were just a few negatives.
Being allocated a room with two (very hard) single beds when we were clearly a married couple.
Even though we had a 'club room' we were still charged €12 per day to access the [slow] Internet in our room (and even then every time my wife logged on to her device I got logged off of mine!!)
Charging for the Internet in the room did result in people crowding into the Lobby to access the 'Free' WIFI (which made it look overly busy all the time)
The Air Con in the room could have been a bit cooler
Having the main towel rail directly above the WC did mean a few 'diving saves' from me to stop them falling into the toilet bowl as few times!
But apart from that.. an excellent stay!
