          7.0

          Hotel was nice, great, safe area. We got exactly what we asked for, a quite room, non smoking. Breakfast was good.

          There was no free Internet, they charge 6EU per hour. we needed to check in for our flight and print a boarding pass, not available without paying 6 EU.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Location and neighbourhood, the breakfast and the room, ambience and staff, price - actually everything

          Nowadays the Internet could be somewhat cheaper

        • Couple
          5.4

          The location was great, good value considering just the location.

          The hotel had room service, but we could not order a bottle of water at night after we finished the mini bottle in the fridge. Cleaning staff comes in at 10am in the morning, they knock and open the door at the same time, did not even wait for a response, we got freaked out both mornings.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Very centrally located hotel within walking distance to major shops and restaurants. Hotel was nicely decorated and rooms are spacious with a separate living room.

          No tea/coffee facilities in the room. I was not feeling well during my stay and could not boil any hot water.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The hotel suites are spacious and nicely decorated. Bathrooms are nicely fitted out. Location of hotel is good - within walking distance to shops and restaurants and in a very good area/safe in Madrid.

          Some of the hotel did not speak much English and were not too helpful.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The position was excellent and having a garage was a huge plus.

          The lack of a comfortable lounge was the only drawback as "The Gin Club" was often closed

        • Single
          7.4

          no slipper in the room, no tienen zapatillas

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Clean and comfortable although a bit of a walk to the city center and the historic district but doable.

        • Family with children
          3.8

          One of the worst ever hotels I had stayed. The only thing that was good about it it's location close to the metro. Ignorant staff who could care less. Two miserable and sleepless nights stay. Hotels like these should be removed from your website if you wish to keep up your websites standard. I might even reconsider using the website if hotels of this calibre are not removed from your list.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Nicely decorated spacious room. Lot's of extras in the bathroom (including robes)

          Room was next to the elevator shaft and was noisy. Also, had to pay for using WiFi and the safe was not operational.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          We were suppose to have one big triple room (with one double and one single bed next to each other). When we arrived it looked like the staff had no trace of our booking. I showed them my reservation that I printed and we were given a junior suite intstead we 2 sepearate rooms and TV'S. The room was huge, smelled very nice and had a wonderful bathroom. The breakfast is really goods as it had a huge choice

          The staff is very unfriendly and except one young man at the reception no one seemed to be able to speak one word of English. It did not really matter at the end as we did not need anyone's help.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Best location, Best breakfast and Beautiful old days feeling hotel. We really recommended it. And great gin bar.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The hotel is conveniently located in Salamanca, The executve suite we occupied was very comfortable and good value. Although it overlooked a main street the traffic noise did not disturb us. It's close to wo Metro stations, and travel round the city was easy.

          Next time we visit Madrid we must take a crash course in Spanish !
