      Really beautiful hotel. Room as huge (and we only got the, so called classic room - can only imagine how large the other rooms were!!). Lovely bar and restaurant. Great location. Near Palaza Mayor and many tube stations. Highly recommend.

      Short break

      From arrival to departure was an absolute pleasure. Be sure to upgrade to red level for that extra special service. Thanks to the concierge Juan who was a great help. See you all next year.

      The staff couldn’t do enough for us in this lovely setting. Fantastic spread at breakfast and a great sized room. Ideal location close to the palace and a 20 min walk to the Prado Museum and Retiro Park. Overall a super place to stay.

      The hotel has a nice atmosphere the front of house staff are very welcoming. Staff members on all levels we encountered were courteous and polite and always had a smile. The doorman and porters are a real source of information and have a good sense of humour. The room was very comfortable and the shower/wetroom was a great way to start to the day. The roof top pool and bar are a real bonus. We spent a couple of hours there in the early evening everyday, lovely to return to after a day of sightseeing, Also its a great spot to watch the sun go down over the mountains. There is also a beautiful garden court yard to relax in, another real bonus in the middle of the city. The hotel is in a perfect spot for accessing the city by foot, very central and easy walking distance to The Royal Palace and many other main sights. Lots of great restaurants and bars in the old part of the city which is a 10 minute walk. Also lots of eateries around the hotel too and main shopping isn't far either. Its very peaceful so you don't feel you are in the middle of the city We had an issue with out room which management dealt with swiftly and efficiently without a bat of an eye. We were very grateful and also impressed. All in a great hotel only wish we there there longer than 3 nights but will definitely use again next time we come to Madrid as I feel nothing else would compare.
