Staying for 3 nights in September. Hotel was clean and well maintained with unique design with reliable wifi, The Gran Via metro is pretty central to getting around Madrid (except for transit to airport requires multiple transfers). My room was a small single bed, no view, in the back corner or the weird hallways. I didn't not have any specific safety issues, but I did feel a little nervous a times. The front door is completely open 24H a day with no doorman/security entrance. And (I wish I had know this before) Montera has its "street traffic" nearly 24H days, and most men get harrassed walking up and down Montera.
The staff was pleasant, but didn't have the best mastery of English, and weren't able to answer simple local questions without looking up on Google (which I can just as easily do!) For example, I asked about the closed cell phone merchant. The front desk staff sent me to a location 2 metro stops away -- when there is a great Vodafone right in Puerta del Sol!!
Anyway, overall, good experience but would NOT stay here again or recommend based on the location/street traffic.
