Bed sheets changed every day - what luxury. Breakfast superb and after 9am breakfast is served on the terrace. Cocktails divine. Staff really helpful - nothing too much trouble. Doormen went the extra mile in their friendliness and advice. Altogether a great time spent in Madrid.
Decent sized room, with nice large bathroom. Very good location close to the metro and all the major art galleries in the area. And still only 15-20 minutes easy walk into the core of old Madrid. Air conditioning functioned well in 36+C heat. No issues with internet either.
The hotel is in a good location close to the Retiro Park and the three major museums. However, be warned about taking a room that looks over the park. Because the photos on the website look like it backs directly onto the park, I specifically requested this. Unless you are a very sound sleeper, don't! There is a very noisy road between the hotel and the park, with heay traffic stopping at lights right in front of the hotel and then roaring off again all through the night. This made getting a good night's sleep well nigh impossible. The balcony doors do not cut out this noise sufficiently.
Because I had specially requested this room, we stuck it out for a few nights, hoping to get used to it. We did not. However, once we told the hotel staff they were very nice about it, changed us to an interior room, and made up for the smaller bed by offering us free breakfast, - should have complained sooner.
Hotel is at a very convenient location on a quite street, very close to all major sites in Madrid. The rooms are clean and spacious, with air-conditioning and comfortable beds. Staff is friendly. The buffet breakfast is excellent.
Arrived in evening greeted by a tranquil tapas bar outside hotel. Situated in lovely square overlooking park. Hotel
Location central and local bus stops and metro near by, but still central to main squares and surrounding area. Staff at hotel extremely helpful and efficient. Room very spacious with all amenities. Times for breakfast ideal with more time offered on weekends. Continental breakfast available as well as bacon and eggs on request.
Hotel provided exactly what my partner and I required for a fantastic city break. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

Next to the broad, tree-lined Paseo del Prado, the new extension at the world-class Prado museum is an architectural triumph. The well laid-out Botanical Gardens opposite the entrance are worth a wander and behind them lies Madrid’s green sanctuary, the Retiro park. Boat on the lake, stroll through the fragrant rose garden, and watch the terrapins sunbathe by the delicate Palacio de Cristal.
