Located right beside a Metro station which allows easy access to all of central Madrid. Clean with pleasant staff but rooms small and rather tired and old fashioned. One major gripe is that you have to pay an extra 20 Euros per day to use their pool/spa which is rather a con for a supposed 5 star hotel. Summary: fine as a business hotel, great for somewhere to sleep whilst visiting Madrid but rather characterless and nothing to enjoy in the hotel inself
"Great location, modern, spacious and quiet rooms!"
The Petit Palace Santa Barbara is a well located hotel with many restaurants and bars within walking distance, and also walking distance from the gay district. The hotel and rooms are modern, clean and fresh. The rooms are spacious with good sized bathrooms (we stayed there twice on our in different rooms). Staff are friendly and very helpful with dining and touristic information. Parking is available off premises, but also within a short walk. Thank you Petit Palace Santa Barbara, we will see you soon again!
The hotel was ideal for us as we wanted to be able to walk and explore the city. The room was large and well equipped with a good sized bathroom. Although we were on the first floor and overlooked a very busy roundabout traffic noise was restricted. One negative point was that the air conditioning could have been better as the weather was hot during our stay. Breakfast was excellent and comprehensive and extremely good value. The staff at reception and especially in the dining area were very polite and seemed generally friendly and keen to please. Altogether a very nice hotel and one which I would recommend to friends
Nice hotel close to everything, staff is very helpful Fernando and the manager Oscar are very customer friendly.
On my second night an alarm went on at a neighbor's place for almost three hours during the night but I think it's part of the game to have noise if you want to stay near the Center.

Well situated for the Canal Metro stop. Helpful friendly staff (especially Isabel in the restaurant and Carlos on the front desk).
My single room was clean and comfy. I didn't use the air conditioning so I can't comment on that
The breakfast was lovely, lots of choice, including gluten free options. Lovely toiletries, free papers. What's not to like?
I would go back if I ever go back to Madrid
One kilometer north of the city center, this quintessential Spanish neighborhood draws those who want stay in a tranquil atmosphere. Described as one of the prettiest barrios in Madrid, Chamberí's tree-lined streets lead to cafés, independent shops, art galleries, and parks. With easy access to metro stations and opportunities for golf, this community also includes the charming Sorolla Museum.
