We stayed here for 2 nights in March and loved it. Location is perfect, just a 2 minute walk from Plaza Mayor and surrounding by great tapas bars and restaurants.
The bar area downstairs is always busy with a great atmosphere and fantastic tapas.
We recieved a really friendly welcome and even though we arrived at 11am we checked straight into our room as it was ready.
Each floor in the room has a theme. The rooms are small, but very clean and gorgeous furnishings. Be warned - this may not be the place for you if you are sharing a room with friends rather than as a couple - there is no real segregation between the bathroom and bedroom, the toilet has a frosted door and the shower a clear glass one.
The only minor flaw was that as we were staying in 'winter' (was 23 degrees outside) the airconditioning was set to heat only, as a consequence we found the room quite hot and there was no way to cool it down. This wouldn't be a problem in summer though as they would re set it to cool.
Comfy beds, good hairdryer, shower amazing - what more do you need!
Would definitely stay again, a great find
