We booked the Romance Package for a 3 night stay which included a bottle of cava and access to the club lounge. The room was ok if a bit worn and slightly musty smelling but it was clean so far so good. Check in was pretty quick, as we're the lifts and the bed was comfy with blak out curtains in the room so we got good, long sleeps with little traffic noise. The fridge in the room was handy and bathroom clean. Wifi was available in the lobby 24/7 so not a problem, but we found it strange that the lounge did not have wifi included so I'm guessing you had to pay the required €20 a day to get it. The lounge was disappointing in that the drinks were not replenished regularly and typically there would be a couple of bottle there contains a cheap whiskey and liquor, the dregs of a Larios gin and perhaps a few bottles of full sugar coke in the chiller! The beer pump was more out of action than in, and the crisps on offer were stale but there was always an abundance of saled peanuts! Dark room with Spanish TV and newspapers, no internet and poor drinks so compared to The Level at Melia hotels, thus one was a disappointment.
Nice rooftop pool however, with lots of comfy sun beds that opens at 11. Here, drinks were very expensive (no need, but I get they must have lots of business travellers willing to pay the price) |=: :€12 for a cocktail and €5 a small beer, €7 Corona?! But good atmosphere up here if you like Ibiza Sensations music - tip is to deck down early by the pool itself to avoid the loud music.
The location is great and a real advantage, and the staff are always cleaning: didn't eat here as too many places around Madrid to try out. In all, we enjoyed our stay.
