We booked this hotel for a special occasion and were not disappointed! We stayed 3 nights Tues - Friday.
The moment you walk into the hotel you are met with beautiful decor and super friendly staff. We did originally book a 'standard' room, but were a bit disappointed at the lack of a window. We missed having a natural light, so decided to upgrade to the 'premium' room. The only real difference was the window and balcony - but for only 20 euros I would recommended the upgrade. The road outside wasn't that loud at night, and we couldn't hear anything with the windows closed.
The hotel staff made my birthday perfect, with excellent restaurant recommendations and I even returned to Ice Cream in my room - a big winner in my opinion. I cannot praise them enough from the bell boys, reception staff, room service and house keeping. (House keeping was good enough to tidy my horrendously messy make up!)
The location was great, the Cheucca district is modern, young and hip. Take time to explore and you will find something to your tastes, we HATED the Gran Via and the Cheucca district offered us a true Madrid experience.
Restaurants that we enjoyed included - Cafe Olivier (I think that's what it's called) and Pecado Carnal.
A small note in general for Madrid - during a bike ride around the park we were cornered by 5 teenage girls who INSISITED that we gave them money for a charity. We politely declined, but they subsequently became quite forceful and intimidating to the point of asking for our ID, Credit Cards and phones before trying to split us up. As a young couple we were able to be forceful enough with them to leave us alone but I fear that anyone on their own or an older couple may struggle to avoid their insistence for 'charity donations’. As for any city, have your whit’s about you.
