Vacation trip

Requires a major face lift.. Maintenance, change of elevators. Pillows, what ca I tell you, "logs". A food tray was left outside the elevator for the three days I was there. Removed only after insistent complaints. Reserved a no smoking room, no chance getting front desk to comply, stating simply they had none available. With a good location, cannot understand why somebody has not taken taken action or even bought such a badly run hotel.

Nice, friendly, good location and great deal for the bucks

Very nice Hotel, in a very upscale area, walking distance to El Retiro park, 3 streets to Velazquez metro station. The room was clean, warm, the staff was friendly. No cost safety box (worked with a credit card). No free internet in the rooms (need to go to the first floor, next to the bar). very tiny elevator (max 3 persons/ 1 with suitcases) The breakfast is outstanding. I will certainly come back to this place. Close to many ATMs

Ok hotel, great location

Relatively easy access to metro. Nunez de Balboa metro location is 4 blocks from hotel. Rooms are Very small and very out of date. In comparison to your average Marriott, this hotel would not be equivalent of a Fairfield inn. Moved to a Confortel hotel off of Pio XII station on the last night of Madrid trip. Much better hotel for less dollars

Nunez de Balboa metro is just north of this location. If you are moving bags, it is all downhill to the hotel.

Good location, but....

This is a nice enough hotel, good location and clean. But even in a no-smoking room, the smell coming up the central spiral stairs from the smoking bar on the bottom floor permeates the whole building. Since Spain is a smoker friendly country, I would probably stay here again since its difficult to get away from the smoke anywhere you go.

An exquisite hotel with ambiance and con

Very conveniently located in an elegant neighborhood. Rooms very spacious, spotless housekeeping, and beds very comfortable. Superb insulation, no street noise. Elegant restaurant on 1st floor. Easy access to public transportation for sightseeing. Great breakfast, extremely friendly staff. Appeared this hotel catered to conferences, not aware of amenities for exercising or children. Only service missing was a porter to help with luggage into the room. Had to carry luggage up 8 stairs before reaching the extremely tiny elevator. Great place to stay. The best 4 Star hotel we stayed in during our 3 week vacation to Europe!
