Good accessibility and comfort
Posted Aug 17, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed three days, two nights to visit Parque Warner (Warner Bros. Theme Park, about 20 mins drive away) and Madrid. The hotel is right off the highway which was very convenient and though we didn't use the hotel parking (18 Euros per day) there's a public parking lot right beside it. There was also a boulangerie close by, if you need to pick up a snack, breakfast, an empanada for lunch, etc.
We arrived at almost 2 am our first night but thankfully they had 24hr reception (check-in starts at 3pm). Our room was on the third floor and it was a Standard Room with two beds pushed together although we initially requested a Standard Room with a Double/Queen. Not an issue for us. The mattress was also on the firmer side. It was nice and cool in the room as someone prepared the air conditioner before our arrival.
We drove in to the city centre from the hotel, and it was a good location to hit the Paseo del Prado or Atocha station as it was only 10 minutes down a main avenue. If you don't have a vehicle, there's a also a bus loop and a metro station close by which goes straight to Sol (Linea 1). Unfortunately, during the time of our stay, the metro was under construction and they had bus service for the interruption but we chose to walk 5-8 minutes uphill to Pacifico station to catch the circular line (Linea 6). The travel to Sol/Plaza Mayor with the metro changes was still about 20 mins so not so bad.
Overall, a really well-placed hotel. I would stay here again!
