Stayed for one night before returning home after a holiday in Spain. We wanted a place near Parque del Retiro and this hotel attracted us by the late check out (15:00) rate. On arrival the reception staff was a bit grumpy. Then we found out that we needed to climb a stair to reach the lift. The room looked as it were still in the 1950s. Then we discovered WiFi was not free. The bathroom was ok, outdated but clean. The worst part was the air conditioning. The room had two separate areas, each with a digital A/C control. The room was too hot while the outside temperature was close to 6º C. However we tried to set a comfortable temperature, the air coming from the vents in both sides of the room kept flowing hot. We could not open the window as it faced an interior area Overall, except for the location and low price, I found this hotel under performing, particularly compared with the other places we stayed in that visit.
