We have recently returned from a week's break at the Hospes Madrid. This boutique hotel is situated on the busy Place Independencia but is an oasis in the centre of the city. It is within easy walking distance to all the major attractions, and opposite the Retiro Park and the Calle Serrano is literally round the corner with the best array of beautiful shops I have ever seen in a city!
The hotel is efficiently run - we did room only as there are many coffee shops close by for breakfast so I cannot comment on the breakfast provided. The rooms are extremely clean and well furnished, with huge, VERY comfortable beds and all facilities.
I would add that the shower room is integral to the bedroom which was fine for my husband and I but if either party preferred privacy......? The spa is a little disappointing and to be honest, the day I used the steam room I felt quite unsafe being a female alone there as the whole gym/spa/pool complex is a bit of a rabbit warren - there was nobody there to supervise so I would be wary.
The reception staff were extremely helpful and efficient - water or cava on arrival if we wished. The tapas bar at the front of the hotel served wonderful tapas and some very good Spanish wine - great at night to sit and watch the world go by. Overall, this was a great base to explore this wonderful city .
