I did not get to stay at the hotel because when we arrived they were having problems that needed to be repaired. They very graciously took us to a nearby hotel where we had equal (or better) accommodations. We were grateful since we were so tired after the long flight.
This was my second stay at Hotel TRYP Menfis in Madrid. The hotel entrance is on the busy Gran Via, which means it is a close walk to many areas of interest. The breakfast buffet option is worth the money and includes a variety of hot and cold options, coffee, juices, and breads.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable. My room this time was on the inside of hotel, which meant my view was of other windows belonging to other rooms. What the room lacked in terms of a view it more than made up for with a very quiet night. Gran Via is a busy street like I said, so this room was actually preferable for me.
If there is any negatives to report, it's that the hotel entrance is not the easiest to use when arriving with a lot of luggage. While there is a wheelchair lift for those who need it, the front entrance is steps only, which means you need to physically lift your cases up 6-8 steps rather than rolling them on wheels. Also, the bathrooms tend to be on the small side. While neither of these issues would prevent me from recommending TRYP Menfis, if access and/or large bathrooms are important to you you may want to consider another hotel.
In summary, I really like this hotel and would choose to stay there again the next time my travels take me to Madrid.
"Great location, bargain rate for level of service"
This hotel in right on a key section of the Grand Via with excellent views from many rooms. It is modern and well-maintained and the staff is very friendly and full of information about everything. The rates, as for all hotels in Madrid right now, are very attractive. It would have been even better in the summer when the rooftop bar and lounge area is open. In spite of the hotel being in a very busy area of town, the rooms were very quiet when you closed the windows.
