Superb - location, service, decor - 5*+
Quick, weekend break in Madrid and what a fantasy hotel to make it a magical one. Friendly, helpful team who seemed to work seemlessly around us to make sure everything was taken care of. Our room was beautifully decorated and made over daily without ever being obtrusive to our coming and going. Simply super and what a great location to enjoy all the sights and sounds on offer in this amazingly by city.

Best hotel in Madrid.
This is simply the best city centre hotel I have stayed in. Great location, fantastic friendly and helpful staff who went above and beyond to help us celebrate our engagement. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Madrid and will use the book of small luxury hotels of the world as my guide from now on.

Very good 8.0
Belfast Bound
Beautiful period building with appropriate furnishings and paintings in the Reception area and Bar. However the room we were in was disappointing. It was a typical high-end modern room without any character. we were expecting a room furnished and decorated in a style appropriate to the building but we got a sterile, modern functional room and bathroom. Great location but not worth the money. On arrival the concierge made it clear he didn't want to be bothered taking our case directly to the room! Not good!
