City Break

by D1sturb3d on 03 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Very uncomfortable beds. Only one flat pillow available. Air conditioning did not work. No extractor in bathroom. Very noisy neighbourhood, can't get to sleep. No tea/coffee facilities in the room. No English television channels. Not a family friendly area. Very close to Gran Via, great selection of cafes in the area. Lovely friendly staff - very helpful, they booked our taxi.

Christmas break

Hotel is in a shabby area of Madrid, the double bed was in fact 2 single beds pushed together, not good for your back!!! Customer service terrible. We left after two days Christmas ruined. Lucky we got last two flights back. We are a mature couple and we're looking forward to a great Christmas break, the area is full of working girls day and night, we saw them openly taking drugs during the day. Hotel is very, very noisy.

Have stayed here many times!

On booking 2 stays this year the prices have increased considerably and I don't think it's all related to £/€. Checking in late at night you may encounter a language problem.

Easy to flood bathroom until we got the hang of the shower. Window had o...

Great location and value for money

by Julainne on 15 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Location is great as it the price! Would recommend to others for somewhere central and affordable. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Clean rooms, bathrooms are a little older but great powerful showers! Go for a room on the end of a corridor if you can as we noticed on our last night that the rooms aren't very sound proof thankfully we were on the end so we only caught noise from one room next to us.
