“great for groups !!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

we went last week and stayed for two nights ! The signing in went very smoothly NO pressure !!The rooms are clean and adequate we had CNN in English so we could keep up with the world news ! The breakfasts were extremely well done and loads of food catering for every nationality !
The bar was part of the hotel and wine was a good choice ! we all were given tapas for every glass you ordered almost a meal in itself!!! and biscuits with the coffees ! Our bin lid fell off all the time in the room as it was broken !! FIX it please room 119!!!!
The staff were very welcoming if you want a great hotel value for money and a brilliant location think no further ! well done Gavinet !!! Im in the travel business also !!

Room Tip: our room was great at the end of the passage its quite at night dont atek the rooms above the Club...

I love this Hotel , great location for the METRO , easy walk to the Cntr ....

Clean , good service and great value .

One Tip ..... ask for the rear rooms as the front ones can be noisy from Thurs - Sat Night.. Night Club almost opposite and kids tumble out from 4.30 am - 7.00 am and can be very noisy ...

Just had a long weekend at this hotel, great location, really clean, very friendly and helpful staff, good variety for breakfast. The location was perfect and only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Madrid, and a 3 minute walk to the Metro. The Bus Tour was great, and again the nearest stop is 5 minutes from the hotel. Shops in the area were great, I bought 2 handbags for amazing prices. Loads of lovely bars and restaurants once you get by Plaza Mayor which is about a 10 minute walk. Cant fault this hotel and would definately recommend. The reception staff even printed boarding passes for no charge and when we stopped for a quick coffee we were given complimentary biscuits and cake. Nice touch!! Plus a bar up the top of the road sold beer for 1,50 euro a pint!! Bargain!!

Room Tip: Rear of the hotel has no view but very quiet as not on main road.

Very friendly,very clean,great value hotel within easy walking distance from Plaza Mayor and Palace and all historical attractions, Breakfast was the best I have experienced in a spanish hotel, maid service was outstanding. water dispensors on each floor plus free bottled water every three days, free wifi worked very well. could not fault this hotel in any way, this is a big city hotel so do not expect a balcony although windows are double glased so they keep out street noise. would recommend.

Excellent hotel at a top class price. We chose well, found staff most helpful, specially the guy who cheerfully and efficiently ran the hotel bar. Room was more than adequate, and though we were on third floor and facing the road, we were not disturbed. It was a short walk to the tourist bus and the plaza mayor, where there are bars and restaurants. Breakfast was good, though love the way they don't cook the fat that masquerades as bacon. Only quibble, I booked an alarm call via reception on going home day - and it never came, good job I woke up. That's a crime in my book. Other than that well done all round.

This hotel is in an excellent location, an easy 10 minute walk to the Centre of Playa Mayor and just 5 minutes to metro stations in either direction. It's good value for money, clean with pleasant, helpful staff. The breakfast was good too with plenty of choice. It was busy with large groups when we were there so occasionally there wasn't too much free space in the dining area. I initially had a room at the front of the hotel but for me this was far too noisy so I asked to be moved. My request was granted with an apology, no fuss and immediate change. I then got a room at the back which was perfect. I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Unless you have a hearing problem, I'd suggest a room at the back. And there are no toiletr...
