Really enjoyed staying here, the staff are great and can't do enough for you.
Because it's about a 30 minute walk from the centre of Madrid you do need to either enjoy walking OR catch cabs, but cabs are plentiful and reasonably priced in Madrid so this wasn't a major hassle. The upside of this meant it was nice and quite for sleeping at night which is really important on business visits. A cab into the city is about €8
The room was standard European size (not very big) but the bathroom was quite roomy. One critisism I do have is that the only English language tv they had was the interminably boring news networks. I don't speak Spanish so had to resort to watching CSI dubbed into Austrian, if I was there longer than a few days I'd say bring a multimedia player or download some movies or tv before you go. Also the internet was terribly slow.
We ate in the restaraunt for dinner one night, the food was really pretty nice, and it's an attractive conservatory dining room. I also had room serivce one night, it was a bit average. The room service menu and mini bar are ferociously expensive, like a lot of business hotels €6.50 for a small mineral water, so if you are visiting on your own dollar you'd want to stock up at the supermarket. The breakfast is €32, it's a nice breakfast though.
