The location is very good. The bedroom was a junior suite, with a big bed. The value for price of this hotel is excellent. Both my family and I normally choose this hotel when travelling to madrid. It´s a classic.

Overall a very average hotel and expensive given the amenities. What your paying for is the location as very central to down town. Stayed in a room near the old and noisy elevator (ask for a room away from this before turning up). No air condition, I think they turn it off in October thinking it will be cold...wrong..it was...

English is not a fluent language of the staff generally speaking. Ok, we are in Spain. But when you reply on international trade I feel a little more effort should be made. When I phoned down to book a table for dinner the conversation was difficult. There was a full reception, I will call you back. I went to reception... More

The BEST location in Madrid!! close to everything! museums, parks, restaurants, shops....! The hotel is old but is well mantained. The rooms are confortable, clean, well decorated. The only thing that I would suggest to fix would be that there is no Cable tv (only 7 or 8 domestic channels) just to make it a better experience, but with that... More

Very helpful staff. Had to change booking from a single room to a triple room during our stay due a change in circumstances. The hotel did the change without any problem and the difference in price was very little. Very central. Nice restaurants nearby. If I visit Madrid again, I'd happily stay at this hotel.

We have visited this hotel several times. The hotel is in nice area. The staff is very formal, not so many smiles, but polite. Breakfast is good. Airconditioning was very good in our room.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
