This hotel is 5 min from the train station, 2 minutes from Santa Ana square, which is full of lovely restaraunts, and 7 min from Puerta del Sol and Prado museum. Our room was spotlessly clean, stuff was very friendly, and the breakfast was really perfect.

Beautiful boutique hotel with gin and tonics to die for. Rooms very spacious and well decorated. If I could say anything against it would be poor lighting for make-up etc. But really excellent. Comfortable beds - rooms cleaned daily.

We're a same sex couple and found the staff to be very warm and welcoming. They were helpful and good with English for the moments where we struggled with Spanish. They even surprised us with a bottle of champagne on the house, as it was our honeymoon. Lovely concierge and clean, modern room with towel warmer! It would be an...

Thanks for your comments. Maybe you did not notice that in the bathroom there is a double light, which is operated with a switch next to the mirror, and getting a perfect light and very effective.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
