“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Stayed at the Emperador 23rd to 26th March. Hotel was very comfortable, rooms clean and tidy. There was a little noise, mainly sirens from police cars. We stayed on the 8th floor, room 825. Hotel is very central and convenient for all attractions. There is some building work going on and it was apparent on the Monday morning, however as we stayed fri-mon and they didn't work weekends it didn't really effect us. The pool and terrace are closed till May which was a dissapointment as the weather was really good. If you come in from the Airport its really easy to get on the Metro and head for Calleo Station, its 2 changes of train and only 2.5 euros each, cab will cost 30-40 euros. We were room only so can't comment on the food, however breakfast at the hotel was 19 euros each. Probably better value in City, we just went to Starbucks, across the road. Definately would go back to this hotel

Position is excellent - 5 min walk from all the action. Rooms however are very dated and in need of an upgrade. Our air conditioning didn't work which made it even more uncomfortable. Definately not what I would expect of a 4 star hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights. On the plus side the location is great and the staff were very helpful regarding directions etc. The hotel was very clean and tidy and our room was nice. Unfortunately the swimming pool was closed until May but this also meant the roof terrace wasnt accessible which was a disappointment given the views from the top were one of the reasons I booked this hotel. Beware of the scaffolding on the side of the hotel overlooking San Bernado. We didnt have any view! Also the taps needed running for several minutes as the water was brown. Loved Madrid and would probably return to this hotel but only in the summer months when the pool is open!

Just back from 2 nights in Madrid staying at this hotel. Pleased with our choice, fab location on Grand Via , one of the main streets in the city and within walking distance of all sites. Elegant, clean and with attentive staff. Room on small side and at back of hotel so no view but nice and quiet. Rooms at front apparantly are noisy from the street below. Breakfast was good, buffet, fresh and appealing and more than ample. Shame the roof terrace was closed, sign on reception states open May - Aug. Would have been lovely to sit up there at the end of the day with a drink and watch the sun go down - we had fab weather whilst we were there. There is this Emperador Club which no one tried to up grade or sell us. They have they own lounge area and an upgraded breakfast selection. No one seemed to take notice of the sign by the hot food at breakfast saying for Club guests only and people just helped them selves, even to the Champagne on offer!
Great Taps bar , out of the hotel turn left and across the road. La Mario (or similar), 2 drinks, tapas and ice cream for 9.50 euros each. Would recommend the walking and Tapas tour we found on Trip Advisor, with Get your Guide. 3 hours, with food and drink for under 12.00 Euros and was a fun way to spend an evening and trying venues and food we would never had ventured into.
Would recommend this hotel without hesitation, we got a good deal via Travel Zoo and the comp bottle of Cava went down well after a long day walking our socks off!

Room Tip: Room at the back - smaller and no views but you'll get a good nights sleep.
