The location couldnt be better. You can choose at least 03 subways stations pretty new to the hotel. It is new to the main turistic points in the downtown. The breaskfast is also very good with different options of breads, cheeses, with tortilla de patatas!

This hotel offers air conditioning in all rooms. I was there in April and there was no air/cond. (a/a) available. There is no lift from the entrance to the reception in the cellar and there is no personal to help you carry your bags up & down the stairs. I was charged 45 EUR for using the telephone to call the information service !!! When I mentioned I would bring a claim to the City of Madrid's City Hall suddenly the charge disappeared...

One plus about this hotel is the central location, close to all transport media and the house's Breakfast.

Room Tip: very poor Wifi.

Excellent location in the center, everything can be reached on foot, noisy however although at the 7th floor. Very nice breakfast, great variety, clean rooms but old and poor in supplies (no trash bin in the bathroom..) Needs restoration but again the location is all you go for.

I really enjoyed my staying at Rex hotel. Its location is perfect, the room was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent. I definitely recommend it. It is a good choice for solo travelers, families or couples.

Stayed at hotel Rex with 10 friends. Although a late check in, check in smooth and room allocation all close by. Good location close to shops, bars, restaurants and bus route for bus tour of Madrid. Rooms comfortable, staff friendly and helpful and breakfast good. Would stay here again and recommend if requiring a Central Madrid hotel.

located in the gran via near bus stops and the metro.
they have a well appointed room, a computer in the lobby for use by guests,
ice is available all day. those are the little things that matter,

the buffet breakfast was sumptuous.

the drawback was the reception is down a flight of stairs and you have to lug
your luggage step by step. so difficult. no elevator to the reception.
and negotiating the steps upon check out is another big challenge especially after the luggage is full and heavy after all the shopping!!

Room Tip: not for those who have problems going up and down stairs with luggage. there is no staff to help...

This place was recommended to me for its reasonable price and central location. I have no complaints about either of those, or the overall service quality, but my single room was a bit of a disappointment - very small and crammed with furniture, and also very dark. For some reason, it has no ceiling light, just two small lamps, on the bedstand and the writing desk, and since it faces the narrow sidestreet and the opposite building was covered in scaffolding at the time, I couldn't even see if it was sunny or cloudy outside.
The safe in the room is coin-operated, which means you need to put a euro coin every single time you need to open it, and you don't get the coin back. Not very convenient if you want to store things like extra cash or jewellery.
