    The hotel is amazing. The location is top notch. Everything is walkable. Franco gave us a warm welcome when we checked in at 6am. The two ladies at the concierge were also very accommodating.

    Highly recommended
    Outstanding hotel and excellent service. They also accommodated our needs in terms of early check in and late check out. Only negative comment, would be that staff could be a little quicker at breakfast, but frankly I am trying to find an issue. Highly recommended

    Very Good8.0
    Brilliant hotel in great location.
    This is an excellent hotel with brilliant bed rooms, public rooms and service. The staff are terrific and well trained and can’t do enough to help. The location is perfect!close to many of the must see sights in Madrid. The reason I have not given it full marks is breakfast! Whilst the pastries, fruit, cereals,juices and service are excellent the cooked food is very disappointing. Cold ,dried up eggs, cold greasy bacon are not appetising or acceptable. There is an a la carte cooked breakfast offering at extra cost but that should not be necessary in a hotel of this standard. They really need a cooking station where eggs, omelettes,etc are cooked to order.not an unusual feature in five star hotels. We stayed in Red Level rooms with its excellent inside/outside exclusive service for drinks and food. Again,a little more variety and generosity is needed with the food offering. Overall this is an excellent hotel and I would both return and recommend it. But.....sort out that breakfast!

    Excellent
    An excellent experience. It seemed a bit formal initially but the room and the facilities turned out to be not just beautiful but also comfortable and thoughtful. A nice garden for the breakfast. The staff was cordial but not stuffy. I had a massage at the spa which was indeed good (I’m picky about massages). A great view from the rooftop. I would be happy to come back.
