    Excellent hotel with no complaints”

    I was a little disappointed when I arrived at the small hotel, but after staying there, I couldn't find any faults. The hotel was well thought out and all the staff members were amazing and high-level. I completely fell in love with Spain. The old European-style double door elevator had its charm, and the room was always warm. The bathroom was comfortably heated by an oil heater, and wet items dried quickly. From the balcony, I could see the buildings in the royal style, people walking on the streets, and the flow of cars. The drinks in the refrigerator and minibar were not free, but coffee, tea, and bottled water were complimentary. The location was excellent, and I could easily catch a taxi and go anywhere. I could even walk to the Atocha station where the AVE stops. There were many enjoyable restaurants, takeouts, supermarkets, and the official shop of Real Madrid nearby, so I could enjoy shopping on foot. The breakfast was especially delicious. Although there were only minimal items, everything was of high quality and made with care. They even made warm omelettes and cappuccinos upon request. Overall, it was a heartwarming hotel that provided minimal items with the highest quality and heartfelt hospitality.

    Fantastic Hotel for a Visit to Madrid”

    Everything was perfect. I rated 4 the facilities just because it is a small Hotel with limited space, and therefore not many options, but everything is nice, clean and well taken care of. The staff is amazing and goes the extra mile to fulfill any request. The location is in the very center of Madrid, within walking distance of all amenities. Do not forget to go to the rooftop!
