“Girlie weekend in Madrid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Just back from a weekend in Madrid, we stayed at the HRC hotel, Calle Angel. Great location for exploring the city on foot. Basic hotel, spotlessly clean and very friendly and helpful staff especially Carlos at reception. Who recommended a great restaurant for spanish food. We will be back soon hopefully.

Great value in Rodriguez restaurant just off Mayor Plaza €10 for a 3 curse lunch and the food was great.

Room Tip: Room 306 is on the nightclub side of the hotel, there was a little noise Saturday night/Sunday morn...

It's a good place to stay. The location is just right -- close enough to the bustling city centre but far away from the teeming tourists. The staff is courteous and very helpful with respect to information about city tours and places to visit. A clean, charming place. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: One from which you can get a good view of the San Francisco cathedral.

We booked a room for 3 at the HRC hotel in Madrid Spain for five nights the room we were given was very good and very clean/Tidy. Breakfast in the mornings was always made even better by the two girls who worked very hard each morning to make breakfast enjoyable.What a Great Hotel and lovely staff all very kind and very helpful. This Hotel is situated in the heart and soul of tourist land close to shops bars and all attraction that make Madrid a great place. Would just like to thank Carlos for all his help during our stay thanks so much and we will be back and next time I will bring the wife. I would more than recommend this lovely Little Hotel to anyone no matter what budget you are on.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for you review about your stay in HRC.

We appreciate your words about our staff.

We are just 5 minutes walking from metro station "La Latina" or "Puerta de Toledo".
Being close to the Sunday flea market is another reason to choose us and have an enjoyable stay in Madrid.

We hope to see you one more time with us.

I stayed here for one Sunday night in March. Immediate impressions on arrival was that the room was rather dated and the decor gaudy and unattractive. Added to that the view to the cathedral across the road was spoiled by dirty windows so I’m puzzled by the three stars rating.

All that I can accept however in a budget hotel and chalk it up to experience, but what I can't accept was discovering too late that my bedroom window was immediately above the entrance door to a night club called Ole con Ole. From midnight on I was woken repeatedly by the shouting and laughter of rowdy drunks congregating to smoke right below my window and all to the constant thumping of the base beat. At around 3am in utter despair I got dressed and went down to the front desk. The man on the desk was most apologetic and his own exasperation indicated that it was not an uncommon situation. He departed to go and pass on a complaint to the club, but it was not till after 4.00am before it finally fell silent. What is worst about this situation is the state of denial when I spoke to the Manager in the morning who insisted that it is a quiet area and this hasn't happened before. Whether you believe that or not, this is a hotel which has a night club beneath it whose licenced hours are 11.00pm to 6.00am Tuesday to Sunday and so you may draw your own conclusions from that.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review about your stay at HRC.

We are sorry for all the troubles you could have during the Sunday night.
As you can understand, we cannot avoid people from smoking, laughing or drinking at the street.

The staff member talked to manager of the disco in order to control these people and try not to make noise.

We completely agree with you but as "Ole" does not belong to us it is a bit difficult to control if the sound level is too loud or not. But anyway it will be never a deafening noise so our guests cannot sleep.

About the windows, the housekeepers will be told to improve the cleaning in our rooms and we ask you for apologize.

We enterely hope you could give us one more chance.

Yours sincerely

HRC is a lovely 3 Star hotel in perfect location ...about 5 minutes walk from centre of La Latina district (Madrid's answer to Dublin's Temple Bar area!), which is buzzing at night! If you like a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing, book a room with a terrace, well worth it. I can confirm that staff were extremely friendly and helpful - both at reception and in all day café, and Carlos's hugs are memorable (ask my wife!). Would go back anytime.

Room Tip: Get room with Terrace on 5th floor.

Hi,

I visited Madrid last month and enjoyed staying there. The hotel is clean and they have a good staff. The hotel has a car parking and i had to pay them 19 Euro to park my rental car.

Have a nice trip.

Yours,

Ayman

Dear guest.

First of all thank you for your comments, it is the best way to learn about the experiences of our guests during your stay in Madrid.

We try always to do our best. It was an honour for our staff to help you with the credit card issues you could have in Spain.

We hope you enjoyed the surroundings of the hotel. La Latina is the best place of Madrid to appreciate the quality of the tapas that are served in this city.

We stay in your entire disposal and hope that you will return to visit us in another time, meanwhile we are working in achieving our goal that is that our guests enjoy their stay along in our hotel.

We hope to see you soon once again at HRC hotel in Madrid.
