On arrival at the hotel we were told that we could not have the twin room which we had booked and had to stay in a double bed for the 4 nights that we stayed at the hotel. It seems that if you travel with companies like Expedia you are not guaranteed to get the room you book. Fortunately I was travelling with my sister or would have been incredibly awkward. We were told that we could ask the next day for a twin room and their solution to a twin bed was giving us two duvets. I had heard and seen that the bathroom was in the room and it really is. I am attaching photos. The toilet did fortunately have a door (ours kept getting stuck on the quite rusty rail so that was annoying). The room had a safe but no long hanging space so nowhere to hang long dresses. The location was great and close to everything.
There are no coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms but we found a coffee place just down the road (turn left out of the hotel and it is a short walk away). There is lovely Italian restaurant that way too. The only English TV is the news channels and nothing else.
Taxi from and to the hotel was 35 Euros each way and took about 30 minutes.
About Madrid in general -
Please watch out for beggars. We are from London and there is nothing like this in London. They are on every street, outside all main shops and they even come into restaurants to beg at tables without even being told to leave.
While strolling through the park we noticed that you can hire bikes and get a guided bike tour around the park. I would definitely do that if I return to Madrid.
