The hotel is right across Principe Pio station, which is directly accessible from Barajas airport. Bedroom and bathroom are spacious. Windows are soundproofed enough to prevent street noise. Free printing at the work area.

The only small issue I had was the bed. I booked a double room, but we had two single beds side by side. Maybe the hotel has no double beds. Anyway, it was not very comfortable because the beds kept separating. That said, the very soft pillows nearly compensated for this small complaint.

The rooms themselves were beautifully furnished, but suffered from a lack of a minibar/fridge, so you could not store your own food and drinks. This is only an issue as the only food provisions the hotel had was a vending machine. Other than that it as all great, on a brilliant location on the outskirts of the town centre, and right next to a well connected interchange station.

I was in Madrid recently for business (= one hotel) then pleasure (= the Madfor hotel).
Compared with the fancy hotel I had been in for the first two nights the Madfor is pretty good value. Spacious rooms.

What I didn't like was the noise! There is no carpet in the hallway to absorb sound and the walls are thin so you hear everything and not always want you want to hear from the couple next door in the middle of the night !! But footsteps and talking could easily be heard.

I had a problem that the shower water kept changing temperature and would go cold suddenly. But the walk in shower was nice.

Location is near a metro stop but not a lot is going on in the area. Easy to get out & about. By day you can walk to the Palace (about 20 minutes) but in the evening was taking a taxi back.

Best place for evening drinks in Madrid was the Fortuny. Fun place.

Room Tip: On the back you have small balconies and a view across the park

The hotel is clean, in a good location, and has a friendly front desk. Has double-paned windows so no street noise. Only thing is the walls may be thin in case you have rude neighbors. I could hear the plumbing running whenever someone used the shower.

It is across from a mall and market, one over from a market, and there are many restaurants/bars on this street.

The breakfast is not great, I wouldn't pay for it. Better off getting something at the place next door on street level.

Room Tip: Has nice views facing calle Florida, views should be better park side above the 3rd floor. Corner d...

Stayed here for 5 nights last month with 3 old friends. The location is excellent, just over the road from the Principe Pio metro station, and also well placed for bus routes to popular city destinations.

Behind the hotel is the main Madrid river, the Manzanares - great for pleasant walks before or after dinner.

The hotel is functional in design, and the bedrooms are nicely furnished and well equipped - especially the luxurious showers.

Reception staff speak good English and are very helpful.

Breakfast is extra, 7.5 euros, and you can eat as much as you want - mainly good food although the hot dishes are not particularly appetising

The room was good. Clean with good bed and fantastic shower. Location is absolutely excellent. Staff very nice and professional. Breakfast simple and good. Very good business lounge in the mezzanine floor with vending machines for snacks and drinks.
Rooms are not soundproof and everything, but everything(!) is heard from other rooms. I was woken up by a wake up call to another room at 6 in the morning. Let alone the snoring...
