Fabulous 8.6 From 296 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect hotel, will book again.
First trip to Madrid for sightseeing and meeting friends living in city. The hotel was in a central location to access the metro and for walking. Immaculate room and communal areas. Friendly and professional staff. Very comfortable and buffet breakfast available. WiFi excellent. Unfortunately during my stay I had my purse stolen and staff on duty were extremely helpful in helping me to report the loss to my bank overseas. I cannot speak too highly of this hotel and would most definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers to the city.

Nice, modern stay
Overall great place to stay, very nice accommodation but there was some noise tr the hallway. The rooms have lots of amenities like iron, kettle etc that you normally have to ask reception for in other EU hotels. I would recommend bringing your own shampoo/toiletries but otherwise good for a quick stay!

Good 6.0
Location great, room disappointing
The room was very small and smelt of smoke and there was no desk, but otherwise it's in a great location and the staff were very cheerful.

Very good 8.0
i had a great stay - the entrance though is a bit odd as the hotel doesn’t take the entire building but just a few floors, so you essentially walk in a regular building with grey walls and have to take a lift to the 5th floor, which is the hotel reception. once you’re there though, this is really cute with a nice welcoming lobby.
Laureline, gb2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Comfortable and clean
It was clean, comfortable and had all the necessary things a room need to have. The only thing I would change is the pillows - they could have had more comfortable pillows.

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent for one person
The room was tiny but super clean and perfect for one person. The towels were changed out daily. Breakfast was 9 euro and lacking, like no toaster and lack of variety in breads and no cereals. The price makes this place worth it more than any other hotel in the area. I needed a wine opener but had to go to the restaurant next door to get my bottle opened since the hotel didn’t have one. I wish they offered face clothes for the shower. The bottle of water upon arrival was a nice touch.
