            Within walking distance of a few of the city's highlights: Santo Miguel market, plaza mayor, gran vía, la latina...

            Hearing the underground pass by. Perhaps too central as it's surrounded by touristy restaurants.

            Fantastic location although you would suffer if you have car

            You can hardly get a smile from staff

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            The staff were friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better-- within walking distance of everything and with a metro stop just around the corner. The rooms were quiet from the noise outside, but we could hear people talking in the hallway. Air conditioning worked great. We didn't eat the buffet breakfast so can't comment on that.

            The balcony pictured on the website is totally misleading. One of our rooms had a balcony and it was much smaller, not very private and looked directly at an unattractive building next door. Only a few rooms have a balcony as pictured and even then you have to stand in the corner to get that view. Wifi worked only in the lobby--not in the rooms.

            Excelent location and friendly staff. No problems with noise as complained by other previous guess.

            This hotel is called Moderno but it's not modern, it's more of an 80's style. At first I thought I wouldn't like it but it grows on you, because the beds turned out to be comfortable. The AC cooled the room quickly. Initially our TV didn't work but they fixed it for us. The shower was good.

            Not that many options to eat nearby as I expected. Do not go to the cafeteria near the hotel (number 10). It was the most awful and disgusting food I've been served in years. In addition to the plastic key to enter your room, sometimes you get the original lock and key attached to it - it's bulky and tough to carry around. I guess they want you to leave your key at the front desk? I couldn't figure this out.

          • Older travelers

            Excellent central position for visiting Madrid. The hotel has generous lounge areas, and given the noise from the streets outside it was very quiet at night.

            The reception staff were not particularly friendly or welcoming. There was no information pack about the hotel in the room. The room itself was rather drab.

            The hotel is 5 long strides from Plaza de Sol. Breakfast is complete and good tasting - can't beat the convenience of starting the day's meals in the hotel. Staff were friendly, with no problem from my lack of Spanish.

            My second stay was in a room next to the elevator - there was some noticeable rumbling noise from time to time - didn't wake me though.

            Breakfast. The breakfast room was limited in terms of chairs and desk. At peak time you had to wait for a table; the offerings at the buffet were mostly empty and were replaced slowly.

          • Group of friends

            Comfortable, clean room, surprisingly quiet for a city centre hotel. Excellent location close to sights and Metro.

            No plug adapters available at reception; lobby area was not as nice as rest of hotel.
