The room was clean but our phone was disconnected. The bathroom was adequate not great. Just outside and on our way to the gate were 3 pools one filled with dirty water that smelled horrible every time we passed it. The hotel was a ten minute walk from the Metro for seniors not 'close by' as we read when we... More

As a first visitor to the city of Madrid, this is probably not the best place to stay. It is a fair distance from the nearest Metro (around a 20 odd minute walk). If you want to fully experience Madrid a first time, I'd advise skipping this place. HOWEVER... If you've seen enough and want to escape the city at... More

This complex is basically miles from anywhere and on an industrial estate. It’s quite hard to find in the dark and wasn’t listed on my GPS. The site is pretty much a dump and not maintained well at all. Only one of the swimming pools was open, the other had green water and rubbish in and the third one outside... More

This was one of the worst places I have stayed in. Despite what it says, the place is miles out of the centre of Madrid and a good twenty minutes walk from the nearest Metro so, if it's too hot to stay in the centre for the afternoon, by the time you've got back and had a siesta, you can't...

The hotels was fine. Value for money, no doubt. Metro is like 15-20 minutes walk away. From the hotel to Madrid Centre it takes like 40 minutes. Apartments is huge and clean, very clean pool, no bad smell and no rats or oil. Only bad thing about apartments is that there are not a balkony for every apartment. When you... More

This hotel was booked as part of a flight and hotel package. It was absolutely horrid and after changing rooms, we only stayed the one night (and only because it was in an industrial area at midnight.) The only good things to say are 1. the people know that the hotel sucks, so they are reasonably nice when you cancel... More

My apartment was huge (with 2 bathrooms) and really clean, everything was perfect - no insects (bugs etc), tv, ai-rconditioner... The staff was friendly (and speaking English). The only thing I didn't like was the distance to the city centre.

When we booked it we knew it was an apartament, not a HOTEL. So we went prepared. The apartaments are very nice, big, good kitchen, good bed. The bathroom is great. You have to "rent" the kitchen equipments, but it's refundable. There's a great supermarket nearby and a place to get fresh fruits too. Overall it's a good place to... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The only reason I chose to stay here was that they offered really good room rates when I checked - 40 euros a night for 2 people (20 euros per person - that's even cheaper than a hostel!). The pros of staying here: good value for money, very spacious and reasonably clean rooms,... More
