Too Bright to sleep

Posted Aug 4, 2015
We stayed at Posada del Dragón in December for a short break. The first room they put us in was the handicap room off of the restaurant. While the glass floor over the medieval ruins was very cool, I just couldn't get over the fact that there were people eating on the other side of the door. As the room was off of the restaurant a lot of light came in through the windows despite the blinds being pulled. I complained and the hotel staff quickly and kindly moved us to a different room. This room was small and modern, really just fine for a short break. However, the shades covering the windows were just a bit too small to prevent light coming in and there was some sort of safety light right above the door that we couldn't turn off. The window and safety light combination meant that the room was never dark enough for proper sleep. Posada del Dragón wasn't all bad. The location really couldn't be better. We were right in the middle of everything which is so important on a short break. Also, the staff was extremely helpful and kind. The room was clean and trendy looking. It's really a shame that we were put in the room off the restaurant at all and that the light was so very bright in the bedroom we moved to. Due to the bar/restaurant downstairs the hotel was a bit loud, however, it wasn't too bad and it didn't bother us. However, unless you don't mind sleeping in half light I wouldn't recommend staying here.

Great Stay!

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Great staff, clean, wonderful hotel and restaurant. The location, while not location, while not on the Gran Villa, is better. The Calle Cava Baja is a nice tucked away, yet accessible strip with tons of tabernas near Plaza Major, Plaza del Sol, and Mercado San Miguel. There's free wifi in the restaurant and the rooms. The pictures on Expedia are accurate, but still do not do justice to the funky/tasteful/traditional modern Spanish aesthetic they cultivated. The bed was firm with a nice pillow top, the bathroom hardware was modern and worked well and the lighting was good. There were no drawers and a small clothing rack in my single room/double bed. Terrible TV selections, especially for English speakers. Load up some tv shows and movies from iTunes before you go. You're there for the sights, but there's always downtime. The guests are sophisticated and the atmosphere is lively, but not at all rowdy. This is more for young or young-at-heart couples, not so much for families. There are few extras (gym, outdoor space, etc.) but you are in the La Latina neighborhood and the #5 Metro (Green Line) gets you to Gran Villa in 2-3 short stops. Mine was a solo professional trip; when I return to Spain with the family, I'd stay at a hotel with larger rooms and more amenities. But for a couple on a fun get away, the Dragon Inn (Posada del Dragon) is hard to beat.

Posada del Dragon

The Posada has a great location near many many great restaurants. My wife and I had a very very good time. First impressions, when we got there were not very good. However, the staff was very very helpful and great. The rooms are really very unique and done well. We would stay there again, primarily because of location and an extremely reasonable price.

Gorgeous hotel. Recommend the balcony rooms, they are worth the little extra u pay for them. Very friendly staff. They even got us an adapter plug to charge our phone. Very comfortable beds. Would definitely go again.
