    • Couple
      10.0

      The staff, the location and the breakfast buffett.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Excellent situated Hotel with the necessary comfort. Breakfast is ok. Staff people at the reception are nice. On the other side the bar and the breakfast room people are very stressed and this way not always polite and friendly.

      The breakfast room and atmosphere

    • Single
      8.2

      Great location close to Sol and Opera. Quiet rooms looking over internal courtyard. Good room and well fitted bathroom. Only problem was absence of wife due to volcanic ash [not hotel's fault!].

    • Couple
      10.0

      everything: the place quiet, but very good to visit with a nice walk, or metro the City; the breakfast full of fresh and good food, the wi.fi in the room.

    • Family with children
      9.2

      Very good value for money for a 4 star hotel. It is also very conveniently located to the city centre. A few steps away there is the big shopping centre El Corte Ingles where you can shop for food, clothes, etc. Lots of nice restaurants around. Metro stations just a few metres away. The location is quiet, good for resting.

      The reception desk was too small, only one person can check in or check out at a time.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Location

      Poor design, no bidet, bathroom fixtures designed for "look" and not functionality. E.g., no soap dish in shower (had to put soap on floor) and toilet paper behind the toilet.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      I liked the fact that it was very central and you could walk everywhere. It was off the main streets so wasn't too noisy.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      It is at the heart of Madrid; there is not best location!

      They can improve on the hot water pomping, since when taking a shower you get cold water too.

    • Single
      6.6

      The location is second to none because it is in a quiet plaza between all the noisy streets. But those are the streets where you want to be during the day/evening and they're 100 yards away.

      It's pricy for what you actually get

    • Couple
      7.4

      The location is very good and central to Metros and main city attractions

      The double bed is in fact two single beds pushed together sharing a single headboard and the sheets are individual for each bed which is not comfortable. Would be better with actual double bed of smaller size and sheets which fit when a couple are sleeping together. Therefore for romance the hotel scores are not so high.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Great quite quiet location in central Madrid, close to Sol and Opera. We have stayed before and will stay again. Comfortable rooms. Good value for standard of hotel.

    • Single
      5.8

      Location, cleanliness.

      Mangy furniture, sound from other rooms, unpleasant staff at the restorant.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      The location was the best and the hotel was comfortable

      They charged me & my sister's credit card three times for the same stay and we spent additional $500.00 trying to clear it up. It cause the rest of my trip to be very stressful. Even though they eventually credit my account they took no responsibility

    • Couple
      9.6

      We chose this hotel for its central location and it did not disappoint. It was easily accessible via Metro and the 19th century building that houses the hotel was beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our room was huge with 15 ft. ceilings and a view of the plaza. I'm sorry we only stayed for one night!

    • Family with children
      8.8

      I love the location! It is excellent!

      I did not like 2 things: 1. The cleaning staff left my room open while cleaning. I guess they went to get something to come back and finish work at the room. At that moment I arrived and the room was open and nobody in although the cleaning car was in front. I left the door open to see if the cleaning lady was coming in but after 10 minutes wait I closed the door of my room. And this happen two days out of the three days in a row. Please when cleaning do not leave rooms open if if you have to pick up something in another place. Keep rooms close especially if you are not cleaning. 2. More Security at the front entrance. They were weird people around. I even saw 2 people urinating against the hotel's walls. Thank you, Martha R. Baldizon
