We enjoyed our 2-night stay here: conveniently-easy walking distance to the Gran Via, Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol made it a good choice. It was also about 25% cheaper than comparable hotels in the area. The Plaza de Espana is the nearest metro station, and is no more than 5 -10 minutes walk away: although it is possible to take the metro from the airport,I do not recommend this for those with much luggage, however, since it requires going up and down a lot of steps. In a pretty quiet street, fronting onto gardens, this hotel is an older property, with quite a lot of charm. There is a comfortable lobby and lounge, with a free coffee service. The bedroom was a good size with modern fittings and furnishings. The wifi worked well. There is a limited choice of good eating places in the immediate vicinity, but 10-15 minutes walking distance, you have a wide choice of restaurants, especially in the Opera area.
