Big room. Helpful staff at front desk recommended a good restaurant within walking distance. Good breakfast. Excellent location - walkable to Guggenheim, Old Town, funicular. Metro station right outside.

This hotel is located in a great location if you want to be able to walk to all sight. Exterior grand and the rooms are big but the whole complex would definately need a good make-over. Bellboys friendly but overall service slow. Definately overpriced.More

Rooms are dreary lacking personality. Vinyl floors may be a first for a five star rated facility. A grand exterior and roof to lobby stairwell do not compensate for a dated depressing environment. The location and staff are exceptional otherwise there is little value provided.More
