My husband and I stayed in Madrid for four days as a part of our 5th year wedding anniversary trip. After some research and reading a ton of reviews on TripAdvisor, I came across this newly renovated boutique hotel (Innside Madrid Luchana) that in the city centre, not far from the touristy spots but yet far enough. The location is perfect and could not be anymore convenience to the Bilbao metro station. It is just right in front of the hotel.
When we first walked in to the hotel We felt like we are at home. The hotel receptionist, Yolanda greet us with a beautiful friendly smile. She informed us that the soft drinks in the mini fridge are complimentary she gave us the metro map and the city map and shopping, sightseeing stops that we can explore while we were in Madrid. She also helped us with the luggages and shown us our room. We checked in around 3.30pm and we were quite hungry and would like to have a good late lunch somewhere within a walking distant Yolanda gave us a really good recommendation to the restaurant called “La Buganvilla” the food there was so delicious with exceptional service and it's only took us 5 mins to walked from the hotel.
The room: We booked the Loft with Terrace room on the 2nd floor. The room is quite large by European standards (if you know what I mean). The room featured a good size flat screen TV with a few english channels to choose from, ipod speaker, the bathroom is really nice and large with a generous size shower, towels warmer, 2 hand sinks. This balcony suite has a long narrow balcony that wrapped around the room. I'd highly recommend this room to anyone that would like to pay a little extra to make your stay a little more special.
The highlight: The complimentary buffet breakfast was the highlight of the stay in my husband opinion as it is his favorite meal of the day. The breakfast buffet had a lot of choices to choose from, from delicious espresso drinks, tea, juices, pastries, granola, yogurts, smoked salmon, ham, sausage, cheeses, fresh fruits, bread, croissants and eggs make to order.
The impression: One evening we came back to the hotel after a long day of exploring the city I was not quite feeling well so my husband and I went downstairs (only one floor down so we didn’t use the elevator except when we have our luggages with us when we checked in and when we checked out) to see if I could get some hot tea and if he could get some wine opener. Yolanda was there at the front desk and she was really helpful and sweet. We stood there and talked to her for a while, while I was having my tea and my husband was having his wine.
After all of the great things I wrote about this hotel I’d recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definitely stay at Innside Madrid Luchana again next time when we are in Madrid.
