Madrid was the fifth and final stop on our multi-city tour of Spain. We arrived from Granada by train, bought a multi-pass ticket for the Metro and took it to the Santo Domingo station, which was about a block from our final hotel, Hotel Preciados. We stayed for 4 nights in a standard room and thought that the rates were very reasonable.
Our room, number 306, faced Calle Preciados and had 2 small balconies which allowed us to enjoy the street scene below. The balconies had double doors which insulated the street sounds quite well when we wanted to rest. The room was not huge, but was nicely appointed, very modern and functional. The queen-sized bed was probably the most comfortable of the trip. The bedside lamps were great for reading. The overall lighting in the room was excellent. There was a safe in the closet. The bathroom was a decent size with a lot of counter space. A really nice bonus was the free mini-bar in the room with soda, juices, bottled water and beer. What a treat! We did not include breakfast with our lodging, so I can’t review that.
The hotel was located in an area with shopping and many restaurants and was very close to 2 Metro stations. We walked many places from the hotel - Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Parque de Buen Retiro, the Reina Sofía and El Prado Art Museums, El Rastro (the Sunday flea market) and the Royal Palace. If we were tired, we’d just take the Metro in one direction or the other.
The night before our flight home, we settled our bill and asked the hotel to arrange a taxi ride to the airport for us. The staff at Hotel Preciados was excellent. The desk staff was very polite and helpful. On the day that we arrived, a staff member brought us a small box of chocolates, and on the morning of our departure, the doorman put a handful of candies in my travel bag. Very thoughtful.
