We booked this place based on positive reviews on tripadvisor. I don't know who wrote them, but my experience was quite different. We booked room number 19 for a two night stay. The elevator was large enough to accomodate one person only. There was ongoing construction right outside our window. When I say outside, I mean that you could shake hands with the person working on the scaffolding outside the windows. The "very helpful" attendant assured us that there will be "not much noise". The banging went on forever. The full tub measured 2 by 3 feet (no, not meters). The room looked liked it had not been painted in decades. I don't know where they got the pictures they posted on the net, but they are clearly not from this hotel. Last time we stayed at Hostal Astoria in Madrid and found it clean, bright and charming. So why did we not stay there this time? Trying to save 30 euros, stupid I know.
