This is a very nice hotel located at Gran Via where you will be walking distance from pretty much everything in Historical Madrid. it is an excellent choice for first-time travelers because it is pretty much near everything. It is only a 7 minute walk to Plaza Puerta Del Sol, it is just a 2 minute walk to the Madrid hop-on Hop off bus stop, it is 15 minute walk to the Prado Museum, it is a 7 minute walk to Cardomomo Tablau Flamenco. it is just 20 minutes walk to the Palacio Real. if you are a frugal traveler like me, there is a grocery just 1 minute away at the side of the hotel when you can buy your six-pack 1.5L bottled water for only 2.34 euros. Our room was very nice and clean and had a balcony. Our bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is spacious, The shower head is great and they have a high-end hair blower that actually works. At the the reception are very nice people. (special call-out to Ursula from reception who helped us with all our questions. She gave us discount coupons to the El Corte Ingles shopping center and entrance coupon to the Madrid Casino which is just less than a minute away in Gran Via. Lower level floor has a fitness center. Not too big but just right if you need a thread mill after eating those Paella(anyway,who wants to go to the gym while vacationing in Madrid?) At the top floor is a garden with a view. Once you get out of the elevator at the floor where your room is located, you will get this feeling of being in a very clean hotel. The carpet/wood floor combination and the immaculate-white wall paint gives the feel of being in a 4-star elegant hotel. Overall 5 star experience. i am happy to recommend this hotel to anyone going to Madrid, whether first visit or 10th visit, it is a very good hotel in a great location.
