Editorial review:

De Las Letras Hotel dates back to 1917 when it was built and the public areas have retained original detailing like mosaic tiles. Rooftop bars are very popular in Madrid and this hotel was the first to have a rooftop bar. Needless to say, the rooftop bar is great, but the entire hotel is excellent, with individually styled rooms that have writer’s quotes written on the walls.

  • Good hotel - Rooms are very clean - Bed is very large - No tea/coffee making facilities

        Individual guest reviews

        • The hotel has been recently renovated, good value given the style and space in the centre of Madrid.

          Very noisy location and stuff is often unhelpful. The reception is narrow and gloomy, uncomfortable beds That is not a double bed. The bar gets busy at night and can become a bit smoky, the restaurant downstairs is really quite bad.

        • The location is good, standard of the hotel is excellent and and the waiting staff could be a bit more friendly. The rooms are very clean, the restaurant has some interesting dishes well presented.

          T warm enough for bath and music too loud at certain times in the bar.

          The bar was a nice moody venue for an early evening drink.

        • Chueca just up the block and meters away from Downtown Madrid. Public areas were modern and decor was stylish. The staff were very helpful, room was excellent and bar snacks were tasty and reasonably priced.

          Street noise kept us from getting a good night', also, the bed was very hard, not comfortable to sleep on at all.

The staff is excellent, the bathroom is large and spotless, salads and the roof terrace looked great. The elevator only has a black light and the breakfast buffet is good.

          The hotel bar closed early on some days of the week, bad service and internet a bit slow.

Excellent location for shopping /, citytour bus hop on hop off stops just across the street and and by walking distance, I can reach la Calle de Serrano, is very convenient for me. Staff is quite friendly, furniture are very tasteful and comfortable, as well as the mini bar also a box of Duchy biscuits and goodies for sale.

          My stay at Hotel De Las Letras was not enjoyable and service was a little slow. The free internet access was terrible.
