    Very good

    Excellent position near Plaza del Sol.

    The hotel is being refurbished. The new rooms seem to be quite Ok, but old rooms are old and not well kept but at least clean. So try to make sure that you are offered a new room not an old one.

    Superb

    Staff very helpful, carried bags, spoke a bit of english. location was excellent, beds comfy and shower was superb.

    TV kept losing the connection whilst on bbc world, although the french doors had double glazing which was good, the noise level in the night time was very highm but it comes with the territory, you can't have a hotel in central Madrid without having noise.

    Exceptional

    I was impressed with this hotel the minute i stepped into the reception,the staff behind reception were very helpful and the room was absolutely beautiful and comfortable, very modern and above all very clean. Breakfast was simple but more than enough to start the day and surely satified for what we paid for our 3 nights. The location is great and Opera metro station is less than 2minutes walk to hotel. I will definetely stay in this hotel on my next visit to lovely Madrid.

    No complaints whatsoever

    I must say that i am very excited from Fransisco I because it everything very good!!!The staff, the location in the city with 3 metro stations near the hotel, the room was very good with many comforts!!!Near the hotel was many food selections!!!You could go everywhere you want just by foot!!!The palace was so close to the hotel!!! The shops the discotheques was very close to the hotel!!!I would suggested for everyone who want to spend his vacation in Madrid!!!

    The only that i would say is that the breakfast it would be a little more rich!!!

    Although it is an oldish Spanish-style hotel our rooms appeared to have recently been refurbished to a high modern standard. It is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the Palacio Real and the Plaza Mayor, as well as having a Metro station at either end of the street.

    My only personal criticism is that I felt the breakfast was somewhat disappointing - the orange juice tasted like it was squash rather than juice, the only hot food available was toast, and as well as hot food I would have liked to see something like cold meats available.

    Very good

    it was right in the city centre, very convenient to go anywhere loved the location,

    there was no air conditioner in the room and no hair dryer facility.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    I loved the location in a pedestrianized street made it easy to walk anywhere and all public transport on te doorstep quiet except for a few reveller singing on their way home at dawn. The staff were very helpul on reception

    Not all rooms have air conditioning so you have to specify when booking that you want air conditioning and pay more the public rooms are hot and there is no bar although plenty of bars close by

    Fabulous

    The staff was nice and the location of the hotel great. It´s very close to everything that needs to be visited. The room and bathroom were very clean, although the furniture is very old.

    The walls are very thin and you can hear every noise on the corridor or in other rooms. It might be a problem if you need silence when sleeping. The breakfast is not so great.

    Lovely modern room, very close to everything we needed. Despite there being a busy street below, it was very quiet in the room.

    The staff were very friendly, but didnt speak great English.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel was in a great location, close to many sights, metro stops as well as many shops. However it should be noted that the hotel is on a very busy street, which would not be a big deal except for the fact that there was no ac so it required that the windows be opened. There is a night club not far from the hotel so it was very loud very late at night (and into the very early morning) making it very difficult to sleep, especially with an infant. The room was very nice, recently remodeled with a large bathroom by European standards. The only downfall to the bathroom was that there was no bath, only a shower, making it very difficult to bathe a 4 month old! If the hotel were to have ac I would return there in the future.

    It stated that there was an elevator however the elevator is actually on the second floor, meaning that we had to carry our bags and stroller up to the second floor to even reach the elevator.

    Very good

    I liked the location, I was in a new rennovated room with the windows that did not allow noise from outside. Good palce for a short stay (one night)

    the toilet is not separated from the sleeping area good enough. air vent in the toilet did not work properly. not all the staff was helpful. the breakfast is rather modest.

    It was very clean & central to all amenities. Staff were very helpful & would rate the hotel more like 4* than 2*. A bargain price too for such a great hotel.

    Good

    Location was awesome. 2 mins from puerto del sol. Lots of good food and bars around.

    The room we stayed in got very noisy at night on weekends. Even at 5am people were still partying hard. Made it hard to sleep if you stayed on the bottom floors. Also not sure I liked leaving my key at front desk every time we left the hotel yo do ativities.
