          Individual guest reviews

          • Couple

            Compact yet very stylish modern rooms with flashy bathrooms. The hotel is either very new or recently refurbished and our room was spotless. Location was not central but the area was very well serviced and easy to get into the centre with the Metro.

            There was a distinct lack of customer service. The reception staff did the absolute minimum to check-us in and out and even doing that seemed a bit of an effort. There was absolutely no attempt to entice us back a second time.

          • Couple

            The hotel is very well situated, near a metro station and close to Retiro park.

            The room cleaning should be improved. Also the shower drain needs improvment.

            Well situated for the museums of Madrid and a short Metro ride to the centre. Hotel was very clean and modern.

            the room was very nice. It's close to retiro park, and near metro station

          • Family with children

            Close to a great park. Close to a metro station. Helpful staff, especially at the front-desk. Clean rooms & well maintained. Excellent breakfast spread that is decently priced.

            They have two hotel buildings with same name which confuses one - we lost a lot of time checking in, as we waited in a big queue at the wrong building. They made up by transferring our luggage themselves (people are good).

          • Family with children

            My first impression was "it was remodeled, neat and clean".

            The hotel is located on 2 metro lines so definitely easy access to the airport and other metro lines it was however far from the tourist places.

            The walk in shower and pressure of shower was good and free wifi was available.

            Only the lighting in the bathroom, a little dark.

            Nice hotel, friendly helpful staff

            Not a good choice if you want to feel you are in Spain. Bit bland.

            The rooms are comfortable and even though one can not walk to downtown there is a good connections with metro close to the hotel.

            The lights in bedroom and in bathroom are not done for people that want to put on a makeup.

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            Huge modern rooms, amazing lunch buffet for just 16 eur. Lobby, garden, cafeteria are extremely nice. The hotel is 2 minutes walk from Sainz de Baranda metro station and 10 minutes walk from El Retiro city green zone. It's way better than most 4* hotels in Gran Via and near Sol, and it's also cheaper.

            Hotel staff co-operative. Clean, comfortable, rate-value relation very good. Metro 200 meter. Excellent choice.

            The room was in great condition.

            On arrival I asked for advice on things to do in the city, places to go sites to visit etc. Me and my girlfriend found the reception staff really unhelpful. When we asked a question we got very little answers with the man 'backing' away like he really wasn't interested. Trying to get any information was like getting blood from a stone. When being giving the room key we were givin no direction on where to find our room, when I asked where to find our room we got a cold responce and frosty answers. Any time we had a querie and asked at reception we where treated like we where giving them hassel. We truely found the staff particuarly rude everytime. I believe we got bad service because we are a young couple.
