Good location, appropriate price-performance ratio. Ideal hotel for a towns-short trip, since with the subway in only 25 minutes from the airport to reach. Since it was close to the Retiro-park is also runners on their costs. read hotel review

The hotel is very connected to the metro system (200 meters) and the bus network (100 meters ) to the center. The breakfast is good stocked and plentiful. The rooms are small, but perfectly adequate. Unfortunately, no window open, so that the air conditioning the whole night walk to. The staff is very friendly and obliging. English is spoken. The value for money is alright. From the airport, the hotel is simply with the line 8a Nuevos Ministerios and then with the line 6 (andes 2a sainz barranda to reach. The walk to the hotel takes only about 5 minutes. read hotel review

The hotel lies not in the center of Madrid and is the Retiro Park on foot approximately 10 minutes on foot. A metro station is located in direct proximity. Unfortunately there is no supermarket, a nice coffee or restaurant in direktrer proximity, something done on the city center. Apart from that the hotel was very pleasant, the rooms were modern and clean. Wi-Fi there was free of charge in the hotel and the staff members were friendly. read hotel review

The room was definately 3 star, bathroom not that pleasant, tv very small and only facing single kids beds - only french channels. Beds were too short (I am only 1.8 meters tall ) The swimming pool is actually more like a paddling pool. The mini bar actually just had bottles of water. The room price was not cheap for the hotel condition and in the end we checked out the same evening that we arrived, prefering to go back to local rented accommodation, which was more comfortable. This is the first time in many bookings that ive been ... dissapointed by a venue. read hotel review

We had three in a double room. Through the extra bed remained very little elbow room. The bathroom was a reasonable size for 4 stars. Otherwise clean and well located on the Retiro Park (the center of Madrid is located between this Retiro Park in the east and the Royal Castle in the west). Restaurant and bar we didn't use. The visit was a bargain through expedia - EUR 260 per person for flight (from Frankfurt) and even this hotel. Would definitely recommend! read hotel review

200 meters to the metro, 100 meters DOWNSTREAM to the bus (next street), quiet rear building, English language skills of some of the staff's friendliness moderate, staff neutral, not friendly and upon check-in we had to wait 15 mins as there was a novice at the front desk by Ramses, these could almost no English. There was no apology. Room was fine, nice bathroom, floor ungesaugt, after complaints go back, at the next two days you do not. Climate blowing directly onto the bed, must be parked at night, airing about Badefenster possible. Thick column in our room right next ... to the bed, disturbing. Breakfast is ok, selection could be bigger. If you want to save on walk down the street to a bar. candid observation, euphemistically referred to Retiropark is a 15 min walk. Atmosphere in the hotel is modern-cool, there is a lovely small inner garden. In spite of all the review a decent appeal for a city break. Just one transfer from the airport with the metro, about 35 minutes, costs 5 ' euro with the 10 journeys on it! Breakfast room in the Vordergebäude is nicer, permission to eat there after Its insistence on quantifiable success was initially refused to be granted rediculous behavior, as everywhere enough offer at the buffet. read hotel review
