“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

So, by now I must sound like a broken record. I always mention that I am not picky about hotels, as long as they clean, have a shower, a bed (to sleep), and a door.

This hotel was booked through a middle party with airtickets as well. We usually do not take breakfast with a room (as its usually sucky), but it was included in the price, so we left it alone. I do rely on my fellow travelers to check about breakfast ahead, so I know what I would be dealing with.

A week before departing I contacted hotel via email to confirm reservations, so I would not loose time on a day of arrival, or not to have any issues at check in. The booking was done well in advance, but the hotel did NOT have us in a system. So please, check before you get on a plane. Everything was ok, and the hotel confirmed the booking after about 10 emails.

I will go over transport to and from hotel at the end.

Room: We were on a third floor right around the corner from elevators, no noise. The only noise we heard was people banging their doors on leaving and coming. Not a biggie.
Beds were bigger than expected, althoug flat. Still slept like a baby after a day of walking.
There are extra blankets, and pillows if needed. The tv was better than in most US hotels, much more updated, the mini fridge was usable. We would go to a supermarket (5 minute walk from hotel, front desk will guide you where), buy food, water, fruits and it was perfect.
Bath: YOu could not ask for anything better, shower was awesome, very pleasant. Hair dryer provided. The only thing I would say is if you picky about shampoo you are using, bring your own. They only have shampoo/shower gel in one thing.
AIr conditioner/Heater: We went in first week of november, they only had heating (the opposite in summer). Not a problem. It was always hot in a room, and we would open windows. Now, windows I loved!! US should take notice. There were two sets of windows, and the second one was different. If you just want the room no to be stuffy, open one set of windows, you will not be cold, but you will still feel the difference. If you want the breeze go all the way out.

Breakfast: Like I said usually I do not eat breakfast in a hotel. This was nice though. WE had a FULL breakfast (check when booking) from 7:30-10:30am. Four types of juices, coffee, tea, water. A choice of cold cuts, nice cheeses, fruits (not always that great), types of bread and buiscuits, scrambled eggs (tried and left it alone), omelets, bacon. Cereals, pastries. Basically it was more than we could ask for, because of this we ate twice a day only. We had their breakfast and than we would come back at the end of the day and have lunch/dinner in a room. Sometimes taking a detour and grabbing a cup of tea and pastry and a street cafe :). 2 cups of tea and 2 pastries was about 8 Euros.

If you are on a budget, you can spend very little money, depending on your program and choices.

Location:
Metro stop Piramides.

from airport: !!! before getting on a metro grab a metro map at the information desk, and then buy tickets at the machines.
take a metro # 8, transfer to #10, and then #5. coming from terminal 4 to the hotel took about an hour, no more. And we paid 5 Euros for 2 metro tickets, thats it. Metro stop Piramides has two exits, if you want to come out right at the hotel, take the last cars of line #5, do not go to the beginning of the metro cars.
You can go back to the airport same way.

Surroundings:
30-45 minute walk to metro stop Plaza Eliptica (Toledo Review will be following very soon).
10-15 minute walk to Toledo Gates, just wonderful
30 minute walk to Atocha metro/renfe station
30-40 minute walk to Plaza Mayor, another 5-10 minute walk to Sol

We did not have a map, so we walked to Sol, and got a FREE good map at Cortes Ingles Department Store

This is a nice Business Quality Hotel with clean and confortable rooms. The hotel is located at the Piramides train station which has a direct line to the airport and underground access to the entire city of madrid. (hotel is 4 stops from royal palace and square)

Great location for someone who likes to use the train and prefers a quite location.

I spent a week in Madrid and stayed in this hotel.
I loved it, it is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, smashing breakfast...lots to choose from homemade and fresh.
Very reasonable price for such a good location, only meters away from the subway.
I recommed it to everybody...you will enjoy it.

One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Almost on top of the subway and train so everything is very easily accessible. Only a 5 minute walk from El Rastro which is well worth going to in Madrid. Really decent prices for such a good location. Also within walking distance of The Prado Museum.
Arrived to check in at about 2 in the morning and the staff were nothing but kind and weren't at all put out that it was such an ungodly hour.
Parking is very handy and secure, right behind the hotel.
The room was big with a small room to the side that overlooked madrid, was really nice to sit outside and take in the view.
The staff were really helpful and friendly, the beds comfortable and the breakfast was really tasty. A multitude of things to choose of things to choose from and the best peach juice I've ever had!
Also, after a long day trawling the streets of Madrid, it was a massive welcome to return to the beautifully cool rooms - the adjustable AC in the room made the trip a LOT easier!
I would definitely recommend to all my friends and family - well worth the stay! Really couldn't have been better, will be coming back there for sure.

We spent two nights in this very nice hotel during a weekend visit to Madrid. Our hotel room was nice and clean and the bed was confortable. We were both pleasantly surpriced how good the breakfast buffet was and there seemed to be something there for everybody. For us the location was great; not right in the city centre but only a few stops away on the underground. The closest underground station and bus stop were both only a few meters away from the hotel entrance, which we found excellent. We would stay here again when visiting Madrid and can recommend it to others.

The hotel was located very close to the Atocha train station and the metro. It was also within walking distance of The Prado Museum. My biggest complaint were the hard-as-a-rock beds, but that seems to be what you find in Spanish hotels (although these were the worst we found. Another problem was that there was a lot of noise outside as soon as the sun came up, so you wouldn't want to open up your window. The hotel restaurant had a nice buffet breakfast, but the dinners were not very good and were overpriced. It was a very basic hotel, but served our purpose - we barely spent any time in our room anyway. Good value for the price.
