My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was a great way to start off our trip! The hotel itself shares floors with other hotels and it is located right next to gran via station which is central and close to all the main squares and shops.

The reception area and hall ways were modern and artistic. I really loved the room we had (double with private bath); it was all white with black accents and I'm the kind of person who really likes aesthetics when it comes to booking hotels.

Great place for young couples or friends in a fun environment. Breakfast was a good value too if you can wake up for it!

Stayed here for a Friday to Monday break, couldn't fault it. It's in a great location, and easy to find from Gran Via underground, checkin was polite and very efficient. The double room was small,but very clean and tidy. The bathroom was ample in size, spotlessly clean, with a walk in shower. The room had 2 single beds together, and not a double, but in fairness, they were very comfy
The towels are only changed every 2/3 days, but more towels are available if needed from reception. The reception area is also very nice, which also doubles as a breakfast area. We never had this, it was a little too basic for me.

It's situated about 5 mins walk to the main square, which did involve walking past a few ladies of the night, but they never bothered anyone and at no point did my wife and I ever feel threatened or intimidated. It's most certainly not a seedy area.

All in all we had a great time in a clean, friendly comfortable hotel, would I stop there again? Damn right I would

Stayed there at the end of may.We found the people at the desk very helpful: speaking very good english and french.They recommended us very good restaurants and made the reservations.
The room,although on the small size, was very clean,the bed very comfortable.I had ask for the room on the picture of their web site.Gran Via Corner it is well worth it and not that expensive.
With windows almost 180 degrees the room is full of light with a good view of the Gran Via.
It's a great location (in front of the Gran Via subway station)even if it seem to be in a "hot" part of town.We felt very safe and never annoyed.Walking distance to most interesting places and good restaurants.They offered breakfast for 4 euros that were interesting.
I would definitely return if in Madrid or recommend to my friends.

Room Tip: Gran Via Corner room,i believe, are really worthy. I believe my room was 410.

The hotel locate right by the "Gran Via" metro station which give it the advantage in this section,

the hotel is 3 mins walk from "Plaza Sol" and 8 mins walk from "Plaza Mayor".
it also has great terrace in the 9th floor which gives you the oppertunity to eat your breakfast,read a book or just resting and see all madrid infront of your eyes with a great wind.

the rooms are very clean and the hotel built in urbanic building style so you feel like you zare going into your own apartment.
the price was good and the staff was kind.
its also has free WI-FI , computers in the recieption floor ( 1st ) and they allow you to use the printer for free for your private use. ( print flying tickets etc..)

the place decorate in urbanic clean fashion.

bottom line , great hotel you dont need think to much... go sleep there :)

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view to the street

I booked this hotel to spend a couple of nights with my partner in the centre of my home town and I have to say that it couldn't have been a better find. Very simple and clean, we had interesting views of Montera street and the always colourful Gran Via. It was such a treat to wake up to sunny Madrid and be able to enjoy all the central attractions knowing that we had a lovely place nearby to come back to and relax.
I loved the style and the minimalist design while respecting the original features of the building - high ceilings and big windows, it felt like a boutique hotel rather than a budget one.
I cannot fault it and recommend their superior rooms.Totally worth it.

The hotel is clean and simple, and the rooms small but perfectly formed. It's situated right in the heart of Madrid, walking distance to sights and nightlife alike. There is a TV, but I much preferred to observe the ladies of the night from our balcony, still seems to be a booming industry in Spain. Only downer was that the double bed was two singles conjoined, so for a romantic getaway you might find one of you falling down the gap. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Madrid for the first time.

Very clean and comfortable room. We stayed in the corner suite and it was great. Beautiful room with large windows and balcony. A little noisy from the street but it didn't bother us. Easy access to the best places in Madrid by foot or metro.
Wireless signal was a bit poor in our room. Overall great hotel and looking forward to staying there again.
