We chose this hotel because of the reviews and unfortunately we’ve been disappointed. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, beds and pillows are comfortable but we spent a very restless night because the room was very warm. The only solution was to open our windows, but then we had all the noise from the street that went on almost all night. We mentioned it to the front desk and were told that they don’t run the air conditioning for the hotel at this time of year even though the outside temperature has been in the 20’s. The manager was not available to speak to. As our reservation is non refundable we have no choice but to stay another three nights. Front desk was not welcoming or helpful with questions we had about the city. Breakfast was nice with lots of options. Some rooms have bathrooms that don’t have doors. Others have frosted glass. Ours had almost no shelf space or room for things by the sink. A nice hotel overall, but when you can’t sleep because of an uncomfortably warm room, it isn’t the best situation. …
I can't say enough great things about this hotel. The location was in the heart of the city which made it easy to walk to all sites we wanted to visit. We had a room with a terrace which allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the view even though the weather was a little chilly! The staff was courteous and helpful and even left a birthday card in my room with some candies (much appreciated!) Everyone spoke English. Some of the reviews and pictures on the website show glass bathroom doors. They must have updated them because ours was frosted across the middle which gave ample privacy. The room was clean and spacious with a modern décor. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows. We had daily housekeeping without having to ask. If I had to pick a negative, I would suggest that body lotion and tissues be included in the amenities. We had a very enjoyable eight night stay and will definitely stay here again when visiting Madrid.…
Stayed at this hotel December 29-31. Had booked a room with a balcony but our room (#516) had a small window - maybe 3'x2' . The gentleman at the front insisted that this was one of their best rooms. The staff were not helpful at all. There were no toiletries in the room. No tissues, no shower caps, Qtips or cotton balls. Only shampoo/body wash, conditioner and liquid soap. When I went down to ask for tissues they gave a couple of small packs of tissues. We were supposed to return to the hotel on January 9 for one night but we cancelled and stayed at the Barcello Torre. Highly recommend that hotel.
My daughter and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel which was located in a convenient location. The decor was different on each floor and the lobby and breakfast area certainly was eclectic. There was a "waterfall" wall dividing the breakfast area and lift lobby! The room was sufficiently spacious for a city hotel but our bathroom had a leak from the the ceiling (which was promptly repaired the next day) and there were workmen daily from before 8am, drilling and sawing! That was not appreciated at all! The bathroom was spacious enough to do some exercises in. Breakfast was a small spread but the array of bread and pastries was good. The staff that was friendly and was busy all the time - I believe she was the sole staff there! Also there were 3 emergency lights in the room we had, which illuminated our room through the night!! The staff at the reception was cordial. I might return if I am convinced that there will not be any further interruptions by workmen or if the room will not have that many emergency lights in it!…
This hotel is on the heart of the historic district of Madrid which has an amazing buzz and vitality. The hotel has been renovated in a modern, clean, comfortable style. The breakfast was great. The hotel desk staff booked a day trip to Toledo and a flamenco show for us. Both were fantastic. The hotel is walking distance to the Palace, cathedral, Plaza Mayor and other attractions. Close to public transport. The location and experience here could not have been better.
Choosing a hotel as a first-time visitor to Madrid was daunting but this little boutique hotel was perfect. The cleanliness of the hotel cannot be understated. We had one small issue with our room and unlike the larger hotels, someone was up within minutes to address the issue. The location is perfectly suited to get to nearby attractions as well as near two metro stops. Would stay again!
What a lovely hotel in a great location! The hotel is very clean and modern, the staff were very helpful too. Situated on a busy street within walking distance to lots of Madrid’s sights. My only negative would be that room 104 was very, very, very noisy at night, you could hear every sound from outside as if there were no doors between the room and the street. Room 110 didn’t seem to have the same problem. I would definitely recommend and would return, would just ask for a quieter room.
We recently stayed 3 nights in the Hotel Francisco I in Madrid Spain. Not knowing what to expect from hotel in Spain (first night there), we were very pleased with our selection. We were blown away by the hotel staff who spoke fluent English and went out of their way to answer all our questions and make sure we had a comfortable stay. Hotel rooms in Spain are smaller than what I am used to in the US, but are very comfortable and met all our needs. The rooms were cleaned each day and worked well for our needs. Our rooms came with a breakfast package as well. I had emailed the staff before our stay to ask about my food intolerances (gluten, dairy and eggs). They quickly responded and said they would do their best to make sure I had something I could eat. Each day, they provided 3 types of rolls which were gluten free and also warmed them up for me. I was blown away. The breakfast was a simple buffet but very adequate. The server made eggs to order for my wife which she really enjoyed. The coffee was also excellent (Americano). The hotel is about 2 city blocks from the Plaza Mayor which as a fun place to visit. We would both stay here again in a heartbeat. We cannot recommend this place enough! 'mark…
My husband and I spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The location is awesome, right in the center of everything. Very near Plaza Mayor and wonderful places to eat. The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for one in Madrid.
This hotel is one of the "little gems" that sometimes are described on Trip Advisors. It is rated as 3 stars but it has the amenities of a 4 star hotel. It is in a decent location that requires walking to most places but it is very manageable. The front desk personnel are extremely helpful. We did not eat the breakfast but it looked excellent. The only drawback is that the bathroom is not separated from the bedroom. A door between the rooms would be good.
