Dear Nathalie, I´m sorry to inform you, that there is a confusion because we have air condition is all the hotel. Rooms, restaurante, cafeteria, hall... All places in Hotel Ganivet are perfectly air-conditioned so we don´t know what happened, maybe there is a mistake in your review because we did not have any problems with our air conditioned machines. We hope to know waht your review means to help guests in next visits. Regards!

Next to restaurants and public transportation

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Pros: Surrounding areas - food, sights, and public transportation
Cons: N/A
Location: Lots of restaurants as well as public events (street fair), architecture, and closeness to metro station
It was a descent experience, came out for two days for a birthday trip and had fun. The hotel was near lots of restaurants and you could walk to the train and back without getting lost.

Great hotel, super location, nice terrace room

Posted Aug 18, 2017
Pros: Location, terrace, bar area.
Cons: Breakfast - dairy free options.
Location: 10 minutes walk to Plaza Major and a 5 minute walk to the fantastic tube network.
We chose to pay extra for the terrace room and were very happy with this choice as the terrace was large with lots of sun during the afternoon if you wanted to sunbath after a morning sightseeing. The room was clean and modern, the bed was comfortable and the little fridge was useful. We didn't use the pool area but it looked nice, doesn't open until 11am though which seems quite late, although it does stay open until 9pm. There was a wide selection at breakfast however we were disappointed that when they ran out of soy milk on day one they didn't replenish even though we asked, however this is a small gripe. On the whole the staff were polite and helpful.

Nice hotel reasonably close to Puerta del Sol

Posted Aug 6, 2017
Cons: It would have been nice to know that the nearby metro line was out of service until early September. In reality, bus was probably easier, though.
Very nice hotel stay. We had a quiet, clean, and comfortable room. The metro was closed for repair for our entire stay but there was a bus stop 1/2 block away with 4 different bus lines with last stops very close to Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. In the end, the bus turned out to be faster and easier to these locations.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for the time dedicated to leave this lovely comment about our hotel after your recent stay with us. It's true that the closest metro line is closed until september, but as you said, there's a bus stop next to the hotel and also there's another metro station a few minutes walking away which is working normally. Anyways, we are very glad to know that, overall, you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards,

Lovely clean hotel, friendly & helpful staff

Posted Aug 4, 2017
Pros: Cold water available on every floor. Breakfast times up to 11am so no early mornings. Staff eager to please.
Cons: Being English I would have like to be able to make a cup of tea in my room.
Location: Within walking distance to Athletico Madrid football stadium and plenty of shops, bars & restaurants, even able to walk to centre of the City.
Such a bonus to have small pool on rooftop terrace, breakfast buffet was well presented and all fresh, fresh water on all floors, rooms clean and fresh towels daily. Within walking distance from city centre, shops, bars, restaurants & plenty of sights, Mayor Plaza, The Palace or you can hop on open top tour bus of the city with an all day pass which was excellent value.

Value for money

Posted Jul 26, 2017
Fairly central, easy walking distance to Plaza de San Miguel and Plaza Mayor. Right near a Madrid City Bus Tour stop which was handy. Great location, facilities and cleanliness for the price.
