    On the weekends the noise from the streets below may be annoying to a light sleeper but after walking around Madrid all day you just fall right to sleep on the comfy beds.

    Bed was super comfy. Location couldn’t have been better. Staff were polite and helpful. And the hotel was very clean.

    Room was very small and could be cleaner as well as bathroom. Big card with key to the room that have to be left any time at the reception desk.

    Location was great, staff was kind and helpful, 24h reception. Music in the elevator was nice.

    Late at night you need to ring the bell and wait in the street until they buss you in and sometimes you might have to wait if the receptionist is not at the desk (but never more than 2 minutes)

    I stayed there 9 years ago finding it to be an excellent value for money back then hence coming back after such a long time. Still very good, simple, clean, excellent located, view to the gran via is fantastic, i’ll stay there once again next time in Madrid

    Nothing we didn't like but maybe more tv channels would be good for international news. Possible improvement would be to put in Chromecast into every tv to turn them into smart tv.

    Location. Clean room. Good shower

    A bit noisy and not very sound proof.

    Traveled with a baby and the staff was very accommodating, even changed our room to one with a bigger bed as they did not have cribs available. The location is great and you could get around without having to use the metro. The staff is there 24hrs and there is an elevator on site.

    Noise of housekeeping in the morning, but spoke to the reception and it didn't happen again.

    I stayed for 3 nights. Great location right in the heart of Gran Via, metro few meters away, very helpful staff, good value for money. I asked for a quite room and received one.

    This has nothing to do with the hotel, but watch out for pickpocketing when using public transportation!! Replace cash with credit card, which is accepted widely.

    Excellent location for activities in the city center.

    I'm not sure there was anything to dislike. It served my purpose. I needed a simple, clean and decent room at a perfect location in town where I could shower and sleep for the one night in Madrid.

    The location was great.

    The noise from the street might bother those with high night tranquility requirements. But that's just a small setback compared to the excellent location - you really don't expect Gran Vía to be a quiet street, do you?

    Very nice and clean, comfortable beds, helpful staff. Great location on the Gran Vía, just between Plaza de Espana and Santo Domingo metro stations, easy walk to Callao, Puerta de Sol or to the Royal Palace. Totally recommended!
