It sits right by a metro entrance covered in graffiti (what isn't in Madrid?) and is 20 mins (uphill) from the Prado. It was not a tourist area and it is situated in a neighborhood that felt comfortable yet urban. We were pleasantly surprised with its location...by fluke we chose well. If you want to stay in a spot that doesn't reek of touristy stuff...this is your hotel.
It is dated yet charming in a typical European hotel way...definitely did not feel like a Holiday Inn. We were upgraded both nights (at beginning and end of vacation) and found the staff to be wonderfully helpful. The only true negative was the horrible wifi (which seems petty, however, as an IHG member I got a survey on the hotel and was specifically asked about the wifi...so don't feel bad for mentioning here)...really bad wifi....when far from home, the Internet is a primary way of staying connected with friends and family.
The parking garage was convenient and oddly empty. FYI don't trust your rental car's GPS to get you from airport to hotel...get a map, study it, use two smartphones...and don't arrive the day of the Madrid Rock n Roll Marathon...which goes right by hotel...yeah it was an experience.
