This is a totally beautiful hotel. It's well placed in the centre of Madrid for easy access to the main tourist high spots. The rooms are superb, both comfortable, clean and stylish. The staff are polite, helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast is good with plenty of choice. I would use tis hotel again if I go back to Madrid.

We stayed pre-pandemic for several days and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located in a great location within walking distance of many sights, and a reasonably busy pedestrian thoroughfare. The staff was very friendly, the hotel has modern decor, and the rooms weren't really large but they were comfortable. Room was clean.

Even though they closed and canceled still charged for my entire stay. Inquired and response no cancellation no refund so applies even if they cancel you Most of the other hotels in Spain contacted me about closing and even smaller hotels refunded fully even with no cancellation policies. Very disappointed. Rebooking will not stay here

Great hotel, great staff, clean rooms and great location. I stayed during the Corona Virus outbreak and the staff was very helpfull. I needed to short my stay for 5 days, but they helped me out with everything I needed during those troublesome times. Only problem for me is that there isn't a food room service on the hotel, what became a little bit of a problem when the shops and cafes around Madrid started to close down due to the outbreak.

Near a lot of shops, restaurants, plazas including the Royal Palace. Hotel is reasonably priced very modern. The only thing I can complain about is the glass bathroom doors. Definitely no privacy. All the staff have been very friendly and helpful.
