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.
