Location at the Puerto del Sol is noisy but very convenient. Lots of good restaurants if you get away from the area. Watch your pockets - if I can spot pick pockets then they're not very good, and there's probably a dozen or more for every one I can see.
We were there in early summer, and at first had a room for 2, then later for 3 when a third family member arrived. The rooms were ok - certainly convenient. But the room is just a room, with two beds and a rather dated decor. Lighting is mostly overhead and a bit harsh. The room was too dark without the ceiling lights on. The bathroom was just ok. The hotel is huge - long hallways,etc. The people at the front desk commented that much of their business is actually tour groups. It's clean. The staff is friendly and helpful.
Restaurant downstairs is fine for breakfast but in Madrid you can find loads more interesting. And as for the location I like the area near the Prado better.
All in all if you can't find anything better this is a fine place, but it's nothing special.More
