We had a 3 person room in the same block as the breakfast room. The room was small with 2 beds plus the 'camp' bed but perfectly adequate. Shower was decent although the tray is perilously slippery. The Metro is 5 minutes round the corner and there is a weird little shop about 30 seconds away. The Metro stop is...

This hotel was pretty much ideal for us. Visited with my boyfriend for 4 nights, upon arrival we were given a choice of smoking or non smoking room and a map of the area, the receptionist told us where everything was and how to get there which I thought was very helpful. Room was modern, large and comfortable with lots...

Room was very small, bed was a nightmare to sleep in as it was a double mattress laid across 2 single metal frames - every time either my husband or I moved, it felt like sleeping on a water bed! The en suite bathroom was actually just boxed in with opaque glass - so when either of us went to...

We are changing all mattresses in that moment, and working to improve the breakfast service; that is why it is so important for us the custumer's opinions. Moreover, we appreciate you have been satisfied for the placement of the hotel,...

The hotel is clean an conveniently located 5 minutes walk from an underground station. The ride to the city center is not short, but given the terrific metro system of Madrid, this is not a big problem (although you have to well plan your trip, since there will not be such a thing as "quickly resting and getting changed at...

Our room was rather small and cramped. There was good hanging space but almost no shelf or drawer space. There were however good storage space for suitcases. A small but adequate work space and good light and sockets. The bathroom made up for the bedroom, a great walk-in shower with water tight sliding doors and plenty of space for toiletries....

This hotel comprises of 2 buildings connected by a walkway. On arrival, our taxi dropped us off and as we had heavy luggage we followed the ramp signs but could not locate the ramp. So we then had to lug our bags up the stairs without assistance. At the check in desk we were informed that we had come to...

This is Thé best hotel I had stayed for business in my entire life. Rooms are faultless and very modern. Location is good. Staff is just Thé nicest and most qualified. Breakfast is excellent, words are not enough to explain my satisfaction. Hotel definitely worths Thé cost and I plan to stay there again in Thé nearest future.

Close to Retiro park, "Ayre" is a very good option to stay in Madrid. Thr rooms are nice,with special decors and bathrooms with all the needed amenities. To reach the city center, you can walk or use the subway. Friendly staff and the breakfast is very good. Recommended.

Affordable hotel with good location near Retiro park and 45 min walk from city center. Rooms with renovated bathrooms are ok. The main problem are technical issues: heating not working, cold everywhere in hotel and low level of services: whatever you ask answer is NO.
