“Don't Ever Stay Here”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

During our stay, the restaurant in Hotel Miau caught fire. The hotel was filled with smoke and we had to evacuate. No fire alarms went off. After waiting in the rain for three hours, the hotel was cleared for occupancy. However, a strong smoke smell lingered so we decided to check out early. When leaving, we wanted to be comped for the hours spent waiting for the fire to be extengiushed. The owner became irate, pushed my boyfriend, and held us against our will until we paid the entire amount under duress. Police were called and we filed charges against the owner. Besides this total chaotic episode, the beds were uncomfortable and the wifi spotty. The room was semi-dirty, hair in the shower and dust bunnies rolling around the floor. If you would like to be valued as a guest, this place should be skipped over entirely.

Room Tip: Complete disregard for guests.

Stayed here for 2 nights . Wonderful location friendly staff .Rooms basic but warm and cosy.Bar and restaurant in hotel were around corner so not great you were just treated like passing trade and did,nt feel as if you were a hotel guest.,that was the only negative to this trip.

Room Tip: rooms with heavy shutters keep out traffic noise

Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

We were travelling with our family and took two double rooms, one of them was nice, the other one was with one small window, with no daylight, with a bit of dust. Other thing was that in our rooms we did not have hot water in the evening as in the morning. That was not the worst thing, the attitude of reception was. At first I called them to tell that, they said that they will call me back after a minute, of course, they did not, then when I called them again they tried to convince me that everybody else in the hotel has hot water, when I said that other room hadn't hot water as well, then they said that all centre is without hot water. I could not understand the attitude of reception and I could see clearly that they lied. When I said I wanted to talk to manager they replied that I could come tomorrow, even though they knew I checked out today. Bad experience, would not recommend, unless you enjoy cold showers.

The hotel is in a central location in a precinct full of vibrant activity. You will find yourself in close proximity to restaurants, landmarks, shopping, entertainment, bars and nightclubs, all these amenities are in walking distance from the hotel. The room and bathrooms were also very clean. Great value!

Perfect location and very reasonably priced. Rooms are on the small size but to my mind the hotel is ideal for a short stay/long weekend. As well as a number of excellent bars & restaurants in Plaza Santa Ana, the restaurant attached to the hotel is very good value.

So happy to have found this property in the center of Madrid. The rooms are just as most say, small, clean and not too luxurious. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

For me the location over the square was just great. Even more so the proximity to so many good Flamenco shows. My favorite thing spanish other than my Catalan wife.

If you want to be with in a few minutes walking of so many wonderful sites, sounds, tastes, art and Spain, this Hotel is a definate winner at a good price.

Room Tip: A balcony, no matter how small overlooking the square is a real treat.

My husband, daughter (13) and I just stayed at the Hotel Miau for 3 days. Excellent value for the price. Compact rooms but wonderful location. Aside from one night when the people in the room next store came back around 1am a little over-served, the room was very quiet. Tremendous location if you like to walk - to the Prado, Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace.... Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice breakfast buffet downstairs in the restaurant - eggs, toast, yogurt, coffee. If you're looking for a bargain (and a pretty simple room), this is a good place to stay.
