Editorial review:

Part of the Room Mate hotel chains, Hotel Alicia overlooks Plaza de Santa Ana and has lovely, large rooms. The style is a bit more muted compared to other colorful Room Mate hotels, but the style is super modern. The downstairs bar is great and the service is young and hip. Two of the duplex suites have private terraces, with their own private pools.

      Location was amazing, very friendly and helpful hotel staff, great rooms.

      Wish there was a fitness center, even a small one with just a treadmill and weights!

      Great location on lovely Plaza Santa Ana, within comfortable walking distance of the Prado, the Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. Clean, modern and comfortable interiors. Very helpful and friendly English-speaking front desk staff. Great three-star value. If we go to Madrid again Alicia is where we'll stay.

      We arrived at the hotel from the airport early in the morning. The hotel was able to give and the couple with us rooms immediately. They had to be internal rooms, and their outlooks were less attractive than those of the external rooms we were moved into for the second and third nights of our stay.

    • Family with children

      Very pleasant, multi-lingual, cool staff; quite a good location (walk to Prado, El Retiro, Plazas Sol, Mayor, good restaurants, etc.); you really can't beat this place for location. Nice amenities included free use of computer at front desk area to check e-mail,and easy check-in (including early check-in) and check-out - no surprises upon leaving! The price you were quoted on line at Booked.net is the price you will pay when you leave. Staff is a big plus.

      Contrary to what I've read in reviews here and elsewhere, this is not really a "budget" place as it is sometimes advertised. The breakfast buffet was just ok; we've stayed at the Room Mate Mario across town, where the rooms were just ok (revealing their former status as a youth hostel), but the buffet was incredible. At Alicia, the buffet is run by the cafeteria next door, and the employees at the cafeteria, while completely fine, are not as invested in your happiness as a client of Alicia - so, if the buffet is a part of your planning (which it really is for some people), just consider this

      The coffee at breakfast was awful! Undrinkable! Several days, we declined breakfast to eat elsewhere because of the awful coffee.

      The fabulous location, helpfulness of the hotel staff and the fresh design of the hotel. We would have loved to have stayed longer and would happily recommend it to family and friends.

      No complaints, very happy with our experience.

      From the moment I checked in, this hotel was wonderful. The staff was extra kind and nice. To be honest, I would stay there again 100% of the time! I do speak Spanish, which helped, but I witnessed the wondefully kind desk help Japanese tourists who spoke no Spanish whatsoever. My room was the perfect boutique hotel. Internet was 100%, location was 110% (which, I know is impossible, but Plaza Santa Ana is one of Madrid's best), and my room was awesome-with light shield blinds and larger closets than anyone could ever need.

      The room I had, which I ordered as a single person, and I knew in advance (so not a problem), had a shower that could be not-so-private, if you were sharing with a not-so-close friend.

      Beautiful and very spacious room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the charming and very lively Plaza Santa Ana. Ideally located with the Puerta del Sol or the Prado Museum only a pleasant stroll away in the mostly pedestrian only city center. Charming staff and reasonably priced breakfast buffet, not too much variety but many cafes in the Plaza just outside the hotel. There's even a Theater in the Plaza where we enjoyed a David Mamet play in spanish, we felt like real 'madrilenos'! The windows have inner and outer double glass so the room was very quiet at night inspite of the revelry in the Plaza. Excellent base to explore this wonderful city...

      A coffee maker in the room would be nice, other wise no complaints

      Staff was helpful and quick to respond to any questions or issues. The location was ideal for us, right on a popular square with access to restaurants, museums, etc.

      There was a plumbing issue in our first room (without going into details). They were quick to respond, but I was surprised they didn't offer complementary breakfast or something similar due to the inconvenience and frankly grossness of the situation.

      We could practically walk to all the attratctions in the old city. The staf is very helpful and very facilities clean and comfortable.

      Our room did not have much light but unsure whether this was the design or due to the fact that the room was overlooking a very inside space ( I.e walls).

      Location was excellent for the galleries and sightseeing. Room was just as described on the net, our jnr suite most spacious with a lovely outlook over the plaza.

      Expected some noise and got it on the May day holiday but the other two nights were quiet.
