Hotel Emperador is fantastically located in the very center of Madrid, in Gran Via. It is very easy to walk to any centric points of interest within 10 minutes or so, such as Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. Being rather busy street, it might be a bit challenging for taxis to park in front of the hotel during the very peak hours of the traffic, but that is not really an issue in Madrid as you need to be patient in such moments in any case. Furthermore, there are metro stations (such as Plaza de Espana and Callao) within only few minutes of walking distance. Tasty and high-quality breakfast buffet, and as a bonus, there is a great terrace and pool on the roof top. I was very happy with my staying and would like to come back to stay in this hotel.
