Super hotel, super location! Nice rooms. Clean and good service. Fantastic city
À busy street, rooms are sound proof. Metro is across the street.

Located in the centre of Gran Via, the hotel is close to everything: 1. Transport- Gran Via metro just in front means you are link to train station, bus station and airport(yes the metro does go to airport) 2. McDonald just next door, and plenty of restaurants nearby 3. Those who wants to take half or full day escorted tour from Madrid (eg Toledo or Segovia/Avila tour) the hotel is just 5 minutes walk to trapsatur office ie meeting point of the tour. 4. Shopping- I lost count of how many Zara and H&M outlet alone along Gran Via, 5 or 6? Sol also within short walking distance.

Hotel itself: room is all white-from curtains to furniture, very clean and modern, simple and stylish (very Ikea), comfy bed, feels more like a service apartment(room) than a hotel. Very friendly and
helpful staff, very cozy common room- perfect to lay in the sofa by the window and have a sip of coffee in a rainy day or at night just watching people pass by. I like everything of the hotel. Highly recommended for those who look for a nice place to sleep and use public transport to explore Madrid and nearby cities. Not for those who look for pool or full hotel service.

Dear Guest,
We can only say WOW! It was nice to read such a nice review of our hotel. It is true, that Praktik Metropol is perfect for people who look a great location, near the best places for shoppin, like Gran Vías, Fuencarral, Serrano and Salamanca district, where the most fashionable brands are located, just round the corner you can find Loewe, Diesel, Custo, Desigual, El Ganso...and so more. And after a long day of shopping, why not to stay at Praktik Metropol, at its Terrace, with outstanding views of the city, and having a Nespresso, for just 1 €.
We hope you could come again to Madrid and visit us.
Kindest regards

Loved the quirkyness of the hotel. Its decor was well beyond what you'd expect for the price. No tea making facilities in the room (cafe across the street though) but it was very clean & the towels were changed daily if requested. Breakfast offered was coffee (vending machine) & donuts(prepacked) for 1euro but theres plenty of full cafes on the same street. Dont miss the roof terrace.

Room Tip: Rooms on Grand Via side have flashing lights from the shop across the road - blackout blind are prov...

I don't think you can stay anywhere in Madrid as centrally-located as Praktik Metropol - the Gran Via metro station is right outside if you need it, but those with good shoes and an adventurous soul might find walking in any direction a feast for the senses.

Turn left and you are in the narrow, medieval streets of a lively shopping district. Turn right and head down the hill to Plaza del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Go forward and explore down Gran Via and end up in the fabulous Parque del Retiro. The other direction down Gran Via will bring you to the Palacio Real. Ideally situated is an understatement.

Loved the hooks on the wall surrounding the inside of our room! Honestly, this is the best feature I've seen in a hotel room besides WiFi. When travelling, the biggest challenge in some small hotels is 'where do I hang my stuff?' The multitude of hooks solved this in a simple, yet practical fashion.

The rainshower head in the shower was terrific, and the water pressure was superb. After all that walking, it was nice to be able to have a very decent shower. Hint: to activate the secondary flexible shower head, you have to turn the little knob (not the big temperature dial).

The bed was comfy and we slept very well. BBC/CNBC, etc. as part of the channel selection was welcome. The decor is nice and appears to have been recently done.

Friendly staff at any hotel can make or break a stay and I was not disappointed. Every employee we encountered was the very definition of hospitality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing Gran Via. I didn't see the alternative, but it looks like t...

Just returned from Spain where I spent three wonderful nights at Hotel Praktik Metropol. We arrived at the hotel at 9 a.m. and Javier at the front desk stored our luggage until the 2:30 check-in time. Our very stylishly decorate room in the third floor had a great balcony with an expansive view of Calle Montera. Yes, we could see the prostitutes from our room, but with nothing else to watch on t.v., the ladies of the night definitely kept us very entertained. There was ample closet space, a spacious bathroom with a glass-encased shower, and free WI-FI. The hotel is centrally located just blocks from Plaza Mayor, close to shops and restaurants. There is a small and very inexpensive grocery store less than 5 minutes away for water, fresh fruit and snacks. From our hotel, we literally walked everywhere in Madrid and never needed to use the Metro. As an aside, on our first day, I was shopping at Sfera (a great women's clothing store close to the hotel) where I accidentally left my agenda which had all my flight and hotel reservations. The next evening, I was relieved and pleasantly surprised when one of the store clerks delivered my agenda to the hotel reception. I think this experience pretty much summed up my trip to Spain: The Spanish people were so welcoming and friendly. The country is so beautiful. And the hotel and staff at Hotel Praktik Metropol are truly amazing. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

After my stay at the Praktik Hotel in BCN I dreaded coming here but I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. It is right on the square next to the Gran Via metro and a short walk to Sol. Nice walk to Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace and other attractions, Many places to eat including Mcdonalds and KFC, The room was very good and next to the rooftop terrace.
