    Nice Stay in Madrid
    Excellent service and best location.
    GHAZAL, ie6 night family trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    The location is perfectly situated for seeing Madrid and the hotel itself is in great condition. Currently due to Covid, several of the expected services were not available but that is to be expected. The other issue is the fact that the road in front and Plaza de España are being ripped apart and make access into the hotel troublesome.

    Very good 8.0
    good rooms - superb common areas
    Common areas were great. Specially the roof top. The gym a little too small but good enough to blow off some steam. We were unlucky and our room didn’t have a view. Actually it faced other rooms windows. I wasn’t also very big (not as big as other 4star hotel rooms).
