“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

This hotel was great. Rooms were bright and clean. Bathroom was tiny, but it wasn't really a problem. It was very clean with a great shower. Literally steps from the Gran Via metro stop, and a quick walk to Puerta del Sol...I couldn't think of a better location. The views were great, and the staff was SO helpful. They were so wonderful about letting us store our luggage with them. We got there early, and also needed them to store our luggage after check out until midnight, and they did it without a complaint. On top of everything, it was extremely affordable. Extra bonus: The hotel staff recommended a market off of Plaza Mayor which was one of our favorite experiences in Madrid.

so bright with huge windows in a great location for seeing Madrid!

metro stop across the street but within walking distance of Puerta del Sol and many restaurants/bars!

simple, clean and well done this hotel was the most affordable of our ENTIRE European trip and also our favorite!

We stayed here to discover Madrid (in 3 days) and found this hotel an excellent choice for our purpose. We had a superior room, because no other was available. The room was with the window to the "Gran Via", but you heard nothing from the noise due to well isolated windows and no lights came through the thick curtains. The room was very bright with stylish interior and a very nice bathroom (incl. rainshower!). It had all you needed. The location is great and a good starting point for trips to all ends of the city due to a metro station right in front of the door and the proximity to Sol, etc. The receptionist was very friendly and the terrace at the rooftop is a great add on as well as the free internet and computer / printing facilities.
The entrance lies in a pedestrian area, so that you cannot drive right up to it. Parking your car could be a bit problematic. The only thing we found it bit weird is that at night there are prostitutes standing in the street right in front of the hotel. However, there are always a lot of other people (no prostitutes or clients) around there so that we did not feel uncomfortable (this "weird" fact was also mentioned in our guided book though).

We had a very pleasant stay there and would recommend it to everyone visiting Madrid.

More centrally located is difficult to find. Everything within easy reach, the great museums, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Chueca etc. Very friendly and helpful staff, and nice, big rooms. We liked the decor, trendy, but not overpowering. Free computer use and fantastic view from the roof terrasse, especially impressive at night. Nice bathroom with rain shower, morning coffee in the large lounge/reception area. Very comfortable place to spend a bit of rest and relax. With a view to the street theatre of Montera, the street running from Gran Via to Puerta del Sol. I knew from before that this street is lined with working girls, now in the most incredible shoe creations we`ve ever seen. Nothing menacing about it.
The sound insulation needs a special mention. Window out to Gran Via, one of Madrids busiest streets, and scarcely a sound to be heard from outside with the balcony doors closed. Impressive.
This hotel is just to be recommended, but maybe not for families.

Room Tip: 411 and 208 are especially roomy and nice.

Upon checking in, the staff was very friendly and handed us a map of Madrid, highlighting and circling different things that we may want to visit in our short time in the city. The hotel lobby is large and spacious, filled with classy modern furniture.

The room was not any larger than what you would find in most European hotels, but due to the way that the space was designed, it certainly felt like it was. The room also had a very funky modern feel to it and the bed was very comfortable.

The location is right in the middle of a bunch of tourist streets and sightseeing locations in the city, so that is really convenient. Be aware that this area is full of prostitutes, which I found to be odd considering the amount of tourists in the area. I never felt un-safe in the streets, though.

Praktik is located right in the thick of things on a busy square. Open your room windows and you'll love the views of the old buildings, bustling square below. Its urban decor is very welcoming and got to give points to the very friendly staff as well! Our room also included a rain shower, which was great. Only one issue was the carpets which had little bit of a musty smell, no issue otherwise. Highly recommended.

Stayed at this hotel in novembre 2011. Back then it had just made its transition from hostel to hotel, so there weren't that many reviews available at the time. I took a gamble.
I got lucky! The room, the location, the service and especially the price: all great!!
I don't think this place is very kid friendly though, since there are a lot of streetwalkers active in front of the hotel.
Stay here!
