Reviewed 17 December 2010

I really liked this hotel. I stayed in 3 different places during my 8 night trip to Spain and this hotel was my favorite. The hotel is conveniently located (just off Calle de Alcalá), nearest the Banco de Espana Metro stop. The hotel itself is an older building that has been renovated relatively recently. It's not enormous, but includes a restaurant and a cafe/bar. The public restrooms just off the lobby are very nice and clean. Our room was on the first floor (one floor above the lobby) and was amply-sized, clean, modern, with plenty of space in the closet for clothes and luggage. The two twin beds weren't luxurious, but they were comfortable and the hotel offers complimentary pillow service, with 3 options. Just be sure to request early, as all the pillows can be spoken-for by evening. The TV actually had a few English language channels, which seems to be uncommon in Spanish hotels. I believe each room has a balcony, too. Ours overlooked the side alley, so if that would bother you, try to request a room on the front of the building. Neither is going to have a fantastic view, however. My favorite part of the room, though, was the bathroom. It was huge! I find bidets awkward and unnecessary, but there was one, if that does anything for you. The shower was nice and easy to use. There's some sort of heated rack on the wall (maybe a towel heater or clothes dryer?). Most importantly, though, was that the bathroom door actually locked (also apparently uncommon in Spanish hotels). The interior of the hotel itself is very nice, with beautiful hardwood floors and comfortable chairs and sofas located throughout. I'm no connoisseur of hotels, but the Lusso Infantas met all my expectations and requirements. I have 2 minor complaints: 1. the hotel seemed short on staff members. Drinks came slowly in the cafe, as it seemed like whoever was working had to leave for 20-30 minutes at a time to cover some other part of the building. 2. the balcony doors/windows don't do a very good job of blocking outside noise. The alley outside our room was apparently where teenage Madrileños party until 6 am. Not a big deal if you can sleep with earplugs in, but again, if this is going to be a problem for you, request a room on the front of the hotel. Still may be a little noisy for you, though. Didn't bother me, however.
Great value, decent location in Central Madrid, amply-sized rooms.

Delightful boutique hotel in the heart of all the attractions. Our room was impeccably clean and cozy. The bathroom had every convenience including bidet and towel dryer/warmer. Front desk was friendly and gracious (Carlos). We speak 3 languages but unfortunately not Spanish so we were glad we brought an adapter to the TV and watched movies we had downloaded to our iPad. We will be returning next month and hope we will get another nice room. We wanted to eat in the restaurant but it was fully booked so make your meal reservations well in advance. We're hoping to get a dinner reservation when we return next month. You will not be disappointed staying here. Oh, BTW, there is a Starbucks across the street. When we return next month we want to take a day trip to Toledo and we are hoping the hotel can help us make this happen.

I stayed at the Lusso Infantas during my first visit to Madrid. It was centrally located and about a ten minute stroll to the Plaza Puerta de Sol and the Royal Palace. The lobby and rooms were elegant and very clean. The breakfast was very good. The front desk staff, particularly Gonzalvo, were excellent. They were very friendly, informative and caring! I would definitely stay there again!

When booking accommodation in Madrid I started months early, so I could choose between many great places. According to reviews, pictures and location I chose Lusso Infantas and I don't regret it. But. Just for information that the only good thing about it was the location - really two streets off Gran via, 5 min walk from metro stop, 10 min from shopping, many-many restaurants nearby etc. The pics shown on the website were a bit misleading. At least our room was quite small, not much sunlight and if we would have had 2 large luggages, we wouldn't have been able to walk in the room. Sprung mattresses were really hard. Annoyed, I woke up during the night several times (although it was very quiet); pillows were kind of like noodles: too thin and too long, so they weren't comfy either. They have hardwood floors, which means you can hear steps in the corridor.
If you don't mind poor sleeping quality and care only about location, then I recommend.
I have to add that service was impeccable and polite, no complains there.

We stayed here for 3 nights, having chosen the hotel based on other reviews. We were very pleased with the hotel. We were very late checking in, and there was no problem. We also got a quiet non smoking room as requested. Room was clean and nice furnishings, good shower and bed, but be sure to ask if pillows do not suit - ours didn't the first night, but we had a much better ones after we asked. We did not eat in the hotel - there are so many great places to explore in madrid, we didn't see the point, but we did take advantage of the Starbucks across the road for morning coffee in our room!

The only negative was that there were very few toiletries provided compared to other hotels we have stayed at. No problem with that, but if you want to travel light and use those provided by hotel you would be disappointed. The wooden floors throughout (in corridors as well as rooms) did make it a bit noisy at times as well.

Very convenient location - Sol less than 10 min walk away, Prado 5 min walk and Metro station 2 minutes. The area around the hotel is fine and we felt very safe around there late at night.. We would defintely stay there again if we returned to Madrid.

Perfectly placed, a "quiet" street in Chueca just off the big streets, close to all central things in Madrid.
Cozy hotel with a friendly welcome and efficient check in/out.
Nice rooms.

This mid-19th century structure has not over the last 150 years always been a hotel. The elegant historic facade contrasts with its gut-renovated interior. Everything about the hotel is stylish, including its very professional staff. The manner in which Lusso Infantas operates suggests a hotel whose room rates would be higher than they are. This end of Calle de las Infantas is reasonably quiet if you have an outside facing room, but I had selected a courtyard room on the top floor, which was both sublimely serene and also sunny. I only had breakfast in the hotel one morning: It was quite good with varied offerings, but a bit pricey. Madrid's breakfast pastry offerings are available in places nearby on Calle Infantas too. The hotel is but a 5 minute walk to the Metro at Banco de Espana. Also, it was only 55 minutes by Metro to Aeropuerto de Barajas, albeit with two changes of subway line. The hotel is about a 10 - 15 minute walk to Museo del Prado, about the same to Puerta del Sol, and just a 5 minute stroll to many of Chueca's restaurants and clubs.
