Deeply ordinary, frankly. No character whatsoever, and my suspicion is that this is yet another hotel run by accountants. Here's a symptom: they don't have porters. So if you have luggage, you have to struggle it from the taxi, and up the marble staircase in reception. This of course saves a salary-cost. But if they thought a bit, in a country with 27% unemployment, it would be easy to give the position to a smart, good-looking young guy who would work as an 'autonomo' for tips alone. An average week would earn him €200, and if he worked at it, 400 or more. (The problem is that the Government will pay you €450 a month NOT to go to work, but still...)
OK, so much for stairs and luggage. Rooms are tiny, and look prefabricated. Furniture is Ikea+ with electronic gadgets to give the illusion of quality.
Staff are polite but understandably unenthusiastic, knowing that in fact they're working in an overpriced Holiday Inn.
On the plus side, the Metro stop is outside the front door. And there are nice tea-shops and a great burger-joint close by.
