“Simply the best”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I stayed at this wonderful cool hotel in the heart of Madrid last month. It could not be more central, just a few meters from Grand Via, and was very easy for a stranger to Madrid to find.
The decor of the whole place, from the street up is great - the room was very smart indeed and the bathroom , although smallish was very stylish.
the staff were all very helpful & pleasant and the house keeping was above the usual.
I will be staying there on my next trip to Madrid.

Room Tip: I had a room off the street, no view, but the room made up for the lack of a view !

We just spent two nights here and enjoyed it very much. Thanks to other reviewers we knew about the "kupuk kupuk malam" ("butterflies of the night" in Bahasa) and so were not put off by the working girls who line the pedestrian street the hotel - and our room - overlooks. They did not bother us at all, and in fact were fascinating to watch from the comfortable lounge area on the first floor. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with a big shower. The only thing on our "want" list would be a chair or two in the room, or on the balcony. The location could not be better; we walked to everything we wanted to see and appreciated having the metro right outside to take us to/from the airport. The front desk staff were pretty good, but I wouldn't say that we were warmly welcomed or thanked, but the young woman was good about getting the in-room safe fixed. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We booked a room with twin beds, which were actually pushed together and so were like having a king...

My husband and I found this hotel to be the best one we stayed at in Spain. The first thing we noticed was the retro decor. The reception area is wonderfully decorated, very modern with a young flair. Reception desk was very helpful as well as the cleaning staff. Our room was very spacious with and en-suite bathroom. We also had a magnificent view from our room. The location is perfect. Close to the sub-way and many other public transport options. Gran Via is right on your doorstep as well as the main town square. Negative comments....no breakfast :( and the lift is rather tiny. All in all, we had an awesome stay and we will definitely come back to this hotel!

We stayed here for 2 nights in Nov 2011, a double sharing room.
This is a very nice hotel, extremely clean and modern, one of the most wonderful hotels that we have been to (for the price of E65 per room).
Location is right in front of Gran Via metro stop (literally less than 10 steps away). Very convenient if you are using a lot of Metro to travel.
There are also a lot cafes, and shopping can be done nearby.
Receptionist is very courteous and helpful, the waiting area is gorgeous too.
Room - comfy,huge bed and pillows, heater working fine, though air conditioner is slightly down, but it was not a problem for us as there is a window in the room.
Toilet and shower - extremely clean.
This hotel is very nice and we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: any room in this hotel is nice :)

This is a wonderful hotel. We stayed for 4 nights over new years and really enjoyed it. The location is very handy, right near the main shopping street Gran Via and the main town squares and centre, the metro station right outside makes it very handy to get anywhere including to and from the train station and airport. The service at reception was helpful and there is coffee and donuts for 1 euro in the lounge. The room was lovely - we had a balcony with lovely views over Gran Via, the bed is huge, large shower, 2 armchairs and a table, a safe, lots of hooks for hanging things - and very clean and light. Just a very stylish and lovely room. There are lots of places to eat and shop nearby and if you are looking for somewhere cheap to eat we recommend Restaurante Puerto Rico on Chincilla for a cheap and cheerful meal. We thought this hotel would great and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies overlooking Gran Via have great views. Some rooms are larger with armchairs and...

We stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is lovely and situated in a perfect location, though the area is full of prostitutes and can be awkward at night (for men). The bathroom door is see-through and might be a bit odd if you are not travelling with your partner.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your comments. I do not know exactly when did you stay in the hotel. But nowadays all the glazes in the bathrooms doors are covered with curtain and vinyl, so it is impossible to see through inside the bathroom.

The area is one of the most transitated areas of Madrid, the confluences of Gran Via, Fuencarral and Montera streets. Crowded all day, with CCV surveillance in the street, with many policemen arouond, and a police station in front of the hotel. It is the Downtown of Madrid.

We hope you could have a great stay, if you come to visit us again.
Kindest regards
