Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2010

The location of this hotel is a bit off the beaten track, but if you have business with one of the companies nearby, it is a good choice. And there is a Metro station within a 5-10 minute walk, so trips to the city center are easy. The ride takes about 30 minutes.

The hotel itself is good - clean, reasonably comfortable, excellent staff, and a decent restaurant. The decor is a little too spartan for my taste - very white, almost anticeptic.

This hotel was very comfortable (large bed, great linens, great shower, quiet, safe area) as well as very convenient (bus line #150 which you get on right in front of the hotel will take you to the heart of Madrid in 30-35mn for 1€, there are also 2 metro stops 10mn walk away but the bus was so convenient we never tried the metro). This is a great place to stay if you arrive by car because you can park for free in front of the hotel then take the bus into the city. Staff spoke English well and gave us good tips. There are a couple of restaurants nearby but we always ate in the city. Hotel is situated in a business/residential area with other hotels nearby but also apartment buildings and a few shops. We would stay there again without any hesitation, great value for the price. Only thing we wished the hotel had was a pool because it gets really hot in Madrid, would have been nice to dip in the pool at the end of the day. Free wifi worked well. I was hesitant to stay there based on reviews that said this was in the boonies, but it really isn't if you use the bus.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst atending a conference. The hotel is modern (don't expect too much in the way of style) and situated in a quietish part of the city. It is relatively easliy reachable using the excellent Metro system, but quite a long way from the centre of Madrid. My room was comfortable and well set-up for business users. The (wired) internet worked fine. However the aircon was barely up to the task - and this was in October so I don't know what it would have been like in the summer. The breakfast buffet was OK with a decent variety of dishes on offer. Overall, good value for money

This hotel belongs to the Barcelo Group. So, needless to explain the hospitality...
