We stayed here in April 2012 for a weekend break to Madrid. We had a disastrous journey resulting in Easyjet losing my baggage and when we mentioned that to the reception staff they immediately offered to liaise with the airport to get the bags delivered to the hotel once they had arrived in Madrid and even upgraded our room and gave us an emergency overnight kit with toothbrush, shaving kit etc. I think it helped that my husband is a loyalty card holder but even so, it was a nice touch.
The hotel is really nice, even by intercontinental standards with a glamourous marble lobby and pianist playing in the evenings. We stayed in a room on the road side of the building but were quite high up so hardly heard any traffic. The junior suite we had was nice and had a really great selection of toiletries - very important when your washbag is lost somewhere between Toulouse and Madrid!
Only slight grumble was the cleaning staff forgot to give us towels one day, but one call to reception and they delivered us new ones in a matter of minutes.
The location of the hotel is not in the absolute centre of town, but I preferred it being slightly quieter. You can hop on the metro which is fewer than 100m walk away and be where you want to be in seconds.
We did not eat breakfast in the hotel, as we thought it was overpriced, but enjoyed sitting outside a little cafe in the city centre in the sun with a glass of fresh orange juice and some Seranno ham and eggs - perfect!
