My husband and I were traveling through Europe this past week. One of our stops was in Madrid and we stayed at the Praktik. The Praktik Metropol is a boutique style hotel, situated right off Grand Via (major street in Madrid), it is walking distance from Plaza Mayor and some other great tourist stops. It is a 30 to 35 euro cab ride from Barajas airport. I give it 5 stars for the location because it is central to everything. 4 stars for safety, it is in a pretty safe area, there are cops situated outside of the hotel. One thing to note, there is a high traffic of prostitution outside of the hotel, which explains the cops, but the girls are harmless and very well controlled by the cops. Its actually fun people watching. I give it 3 stars for the room, it is Europe but the room was tiny, the sink was in the corner of the room and there was a tight space for walking around the room, but we managed, for what I payed I didn't mind one bit (you hardly stay in your room). I give it 3 stars for cleanliness, the bed linens had some weird stains on them and the wood floors were a bit dusty. Another thing to note the hotel offers a 1 euro breakfast which constitutes a glazed donut and coffee, you can't beat that in EU. Overall I give it 4 stars. The people at the front were friendly and very helpful (I dont know about their english speaking since I'm fluent in Spanish). The hotel was cute and boutiquey (which I like) and the location was unbeatable!
