“best value for money and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect from the hotel given its price (~40 GBP per night for a double room, exc breakfast) but the other TA reviews suggested it was worth a go. I visited with my parents and we were very pleased with our choice. A little way out of the centre the bus stop is directly outside the hotel, and is only ~15 mins drive to Plaza Mayor. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the staff at the front desk happy to help and advise e.g. places to go. There is also a taxi rank outside, and Barajas airport was about a 20 minute drive. You can also get around by metro, but it's not quite as convenient, being about 10 minute walk to the closest stop.
Overall really excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Request a non-smoking room - on the 8th floor there were ashtrays and some of the rooms smelled of s...

Travelling the first time to a city without knowing where to book can be perplexing but this hotel looked somewhat appealing. It is very far from the centre of it all though close enough to the greatest flea market happening in Madrid ... The Rastro. The room was fine, nothing to write home about and we felt it did not deserve a four star category. We never tried the hotel's restaurant since the prices were exorbitant. There are plenty of small eateries in the same street as the hotel's with very friendly people, great food and not heavy on the pocket.

Room Tip: If you really want to explore Madrid, pay more and go for the centre.

Bit out of reach, more of a "normal" everyday location, but close to the river, so if you travel with family and want a bit of relaxation from the crowds, it it not a bad option. The room was ok, clean, one could open the window, which is always a plus for me. Unfortunately, it opens to a not very nice looking internal yard, with left over stuff all around. Located on a busy street, I suppose the other side would be a lot more noisy at night. The breakfast menu is expensive, but one can walk out to any cafe open early on the streets.... and can have a cup of coffee with a requisite pastry for Euros 2-3 or have a larger breakfast for more.

The hotel personnel - those who are able to speak English, are fairly helpful, but some did not seem too service oriented. Value for price? Don't think its worth it. Would rather pay this much and live in the center, not have to deal with transport, if a tourist. Also, prices change daily... not pleasant, upwards!

On the other hand, bus transport is great, so can get to any place fairly fast. I did enjoy the river, which is close by and have taken some early morning walks.., very pleasant.

Don't let the 4 stars for this hotel fool you. This is by no standards - not even spanish - a 4 star hotel. The rooms are small and worn out and the level of service is not what you would expect from even a 3 star hotel.

Other things you have to consider:

The hotel describes it self as being located in central Madrid. This is not true. It is a 50-60 minut walk to Puerta del sol. There is a bus leaving outside the hotel to center which takes 15 minuttes but the hotel is not located in central Madrid.

The WIFI is not included but costs 4 euros per day.

If you get a good deal on hotwire or another webpage this hotel can be okay - if your okay with staying far from the center in a hotel that i reality should have 2 stars.
