I stayed here for 5 days while in Madrid for a conference. The staff could not be nicer and spoke English quite well ( certainly much better than my Spanish). My room was a bit far from the elevators but was a lovely room with a comfortable bed and nice updated bathroom. My room had an electric tea pot which was convenient and a large screen, wall mounted TV with international service and an in room safe. Temperature control was perfect which is often a problem in hotels (too warm at night) but the Intercontinental was very comfortable. As part of the conference we were served a good number of our meals at the hotel and all were excellent. I will suggest that just around the corner is a very nice casual restaurant which was great for lunch but very busy (go left out the front door and turn left just past the corner of the hotel). Across the street are also many pastry and coffee shops for a quick, very inexpensive breakfast. The gift shop in the hotel is quite nice too with jewelry, artwork, ceramic art etc. Shopkeeper was extremely helpful and offered to wrap a purchase for me to carry back to the US and she had it delivered to my room later in the day. Excellent service and I highly recommend it. Plenty of cabs nearby and right on several bus lines.
