                  clean, comfortable, good value for money, very good location

                  we were ripp off by the receptionist, he made us reservations to corida to 3*times normal price; buy tickets directly not through the hotel

                  Excellent location in Old Madrid and situated between two Metro stations so easy to go further afield. Staff friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

                  Room pretty basic and the double bed we asked for was two single mattresses so not the most comfortable. Hotel overall was great.

                  We stayed in the family room and it was very spacious. Loved the bunk beds. We were offered the ability to upgrade for a fee and appreciated that option. The location was great and we were able to walk to all major sites.

                  Although the breakfast had a lot of options I did observe an ant on the bread and some mold on another piece of bread.

                  The location -

                  Bathroom very outdated - rooms not very big - excessive noise from the street during the night (partygoers etc) (and I mean until about 5am) I know the price was very reasonable and we had a standard room but this is definitely not 4* quality not even city 4*. Stayed in a 2* last year in the same area which had better room quality

                  Nice rooms and relatively quiet.

                  The men working in the reception was very very slow and allowed us to wait and wait for the key every time..no smile or "welcome" at all..

                  The hotel is well located, all monuments and touristic facilities are nearby

                  Noise isolation is quite poor.

                  It was a great location, within walking distance of the old city of Madrid, including the Royal Palace.

                  We liked being able to have breakfast in our room for a very small surcharge.

                  The staff was really helpful. The location of the hotel was excellent for a city trip. Most locations within walking distance, with the subway station just around the corner to get you wherever you want to go.

                  The hotel is probably overdue for an overhaul, it is a bit old. More closet space would also be nice.

                  Its location is excellent, in a side street, removed from traffic and street noise and, yet, near many interesting places in the city. Very nice inner spaces, very good breakfast.

                  Even though the internet access is free, the signal was very weak and made it difficult for me to do work in my room, as part of my business trip.

                  well situated, comfort enough

                  not good looking furniture in public places, TV sets from 80s.

                  This hotel is perfectly located in the old centre of Madrid - it takes only a few minutes to get to the royal palace and to the main shopping streets. The breakfast was also very good. The room was really big.

                  However, there are two major problems with this hotel - noise from the streets is non stop all night (no double glazing or any other soundproofing method) and the bed was not comfortable. If you don't like noise and hard mattresses, you should avoid this hotel. (I had a fourth floor room just under the roof and also had a problem with continuous mechanical type of noise coming from the building itself, but I was unable to figure out where it came from exactly. It is possible that this problem does not exist in all the rooms/floors.) I think that the noise issue is not stated clearly enough in all the other comments about this hotel.

                  The hotel was in a great location near the center of Madrid, but in a quiet area. The room was large, though unusually shaped. We were close to a nice coffee shop for breakfasts, and very near two Metro stops.

                  There was some on going construction in the area. We did have some noise from the halls, plumbing extra, but the room was generally quiet. The lighting was rather dim.

                  The service is normal. The comfort-ability is also normal. Breakfast is better than normal. The restaurant which was recommended by the hotel was not good.
