“Preciados = "highly prized," "greatly valued"”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

The name says it, but you can't always trust a name. TripAdvisor ranked it #2 in Madrid, and that is what we relied on. (We relied on you, dear fellow travelers.) And you were right. We highly prized and greatly valued our time in Hotel Preciados. The staff are very accommodating and helpful (though the front desk is found in a less than spacious lobby, a less than representative start to your stay). The rooms are great: we stayed twice, bookending a trip to Morocco with Madrid visits . After the first visit, we thought it couldn't get any better. It did. Look for the added touches: unique features in each room, a free minibar, luxurious facilities at a decent price. Location is magnificent. A great and filling breakfast buffet. My feel for Madrid (very warm and fuzzy) will always be intertwined with the fine life we enjoyed in this hotel. A red pole in the middle of the hallway? Green and blue and yellow and red mood lighting? Two separate televisions? Rain showers and golf-shaped soap? That's what we discovered in Room 421. What will you discover in your room?

Room Tip: Room 421 was a hoot. A Picasso of hotel rooms, with underlying seriousness of purpose. Not square...

A short break in madrid - very last minute - and my wife decided on the Hotel Preciados after reading the reviews on trip advisor.
Great central location - rooms were compact - but everything you could want - and a decent sized bathroom with heated marble floor. 2 sets of glazed doors opened onto a small balcony - and it should be noted - that although not the hotel's fault - the noise insulation from these doors - is necessary. I have stayed in the centre of madrid before and been woken by party goers returning home at 3 in the morning - this time it was the madrid waste collectors - who, both nights we stayed emptied a plethora of bins at between 1 and 3am. Not just one lorry - but several. Extraordinary. However there is a/c and this is actually very effective - so don't make the mistake we made and sleep with the windows open - unless of course you are an avid dumpster spotter.
The hotel staff were a delight - friendly - informative - and efficient. There is a free, repeat, free mini bar, stocked with water orange juice, beer and coke - and everything is very clean. The breakfast is a real treat - everything you could wish for and some delicious spanish pastries and milk / curd puddings. The fresh fruit selection was comprehensive and very well prepared - and the coffee Nespresso's finest. Spanish ham, cheeses, tortillas and bacon and scrambled eggs and smoked salmon also featured. There was probably more - but only so much room!
A great stay - and i wouldn't hesitate to book the Preciados on a future visit to Madrid.

The hotel has a excellent location, near good restaurants, El Corte Ingles shopping mall and two subway stations. Staff are frendly and helpfull. The rooms are clean, modern, cozy and silent. The minibar was free of charge, and they renovated every day. The breakfast was excellent, with typical Spanish dishes. By far, the best hotel that I have ever stayed in Spain and one of the best in Europe.

The location of the hotel can't be beat. Shopping - very near the Les Cortes Ingles (Spanish department store) (a minute away), the pedestrian shopping street (a minute away), steps from Gran Via and 2 supermarkets. Sites - 5 minute walk to Puerto del Sol and around 20 minute walk to the museum area. But the walk is leisurely as there are a lot of things to see (plus the shopping or window shopping to be done). Subway - the station Callao is a minute away. Taxis - very easy to get taxis within the area.
The rooms are not that small and not that big, just enough for your needs. The bed was very comfortable. Free minibar included in the room rate (regular coke, coke light, 2 water bottles, canned beer, beer in bottle, 3 Schweppes, orange and pineapple juice) and replenished daily. There are a ton of electric outlets, literally a ton, with USB ports. The bathroom is very clean and include all the necessary amenities.
Front desk and concierge are very helpful. While they are sometimes not that warm, they are very professional.
Breakfast was a steal. While the selection of food might not be the same as those in Asian hotels (Thailand, Philippines, Hongkong), the selection was great.
We paid an average of EUR130 per night, which is more than what we budgeted for a Madrid hotel, but we felt that it was well worth it.

Beautiful hotel, great location and value. Nice rooms and great staff. The location is a key factor and that is the best thing about the hotel. We didn't try the hotel food so I can't say anything about that, but in my opinion, because of the location, it's cheaper and easier to eat out.

Room Tip: The rooms by the street are quiet and have a nice view.

We chose this hotel on the advice of friends who had also stayed and enjoyed it last year. We also checked out various reviews online which helped sway our choice (thanks Tripadvisor on this!). We stayed at the start of March and wanted somewhere fairly central which would provide a good base for exploring all that Madrid has to offer. I don't think we could have faulted the hotel on a single thing. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful and friendly, the room spacious, clean and warm. We got a couple of great recommendations for places to eat in the city too and am pleased to say they exceeded our expectations. This hotel is clean, modern, nicely decorated and located in a great spot, ideal for getting about the city. We didn't avail of breakfast but we have no doubt it would have a been a good experience if the general vibe and service in this hotel is anything to go by. I am used to travelling and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends and family who are Madrid bound for a short break. It helped make our long weekend one we will remember for a long time to come. Thanks to this hotel we left Madrid very happy indeed!!

We decided to visit Madrid 2 days before we actually arrived. This hotel was chosen quickly/last minute solely based on these reviews. Upon arrival, the staff warmly greeted us and gave us a map while pointing out all the highlights. Hotel Preciados was in an excellent location. We were very lucky. We decided to leave a day earlier than our original reservation because we wanted to head to Bacelona. It was no problem and we didn't incur any charges or the early check out!
