I stayed for one night, the rooms are nice, fresh and clean. Reception friendly but little puzzled as they couldn't find my booking. The rooms are well equipped, bathroom clean and well serviced with toothbrush etc. Breakfast nice

The staff is friendly, very welcoming at reception. Good value for money and great location. Easy to get to places of interests while in a tranquil neighborhood. The breakfast though is nothing special and should be improved. Thr hotel is well designed and modern. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Would stay there again.

We were initially dropped at the 'wrong' hotel entry point by our taxi driver at night but the staff at this lobby dealt with our check in perfectly well. The confusion arose when we seemed to walk a long way to our room. We were starting a Trafalgar coach trip so obviously were all placed together. Once we understood next... More

Hotel with two buildings, very complicated... correct but nothing special... it seems that they do not care about cleaning elevators, entrances, ashtrays...rooms are ok, bathroom as well... cannot open windows due to security reasons, so no way to get some air... location good, near big Retiro park

The hotel is situated out of the main city center which is a few subway stations away. the subway station and bus stops are located around the corner which is quite convenient and handy if you not keen on taxis. The hotel is slightly dated but still comfortable enough. Rooms are average size and clean. There are only 1 or... More

A bit on the expensive side considering it is not too central. But excellent room and service. Bus stop a couple of corners away. Friendly staff and clean rooms / public areas. Restaurant closes early and choice at coffee shop is limited.

The Hotel Gran Colon in Madrid charged us an exorbitant cost for making phone calls to a toll-free phone number. After making a few local calls from the hotel desk, to try to find the missing baggage, the hotel desk clerk told us that we could make the 1-888 call from our room as it was toll-free. At check-out the... More

Dear Michael First of all, thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of the Trip Advisor family. I'm truly sorry about that experience wasn't pleasant enough. It seems it was a missunderstood, between the front desk agent and you. Indeed, the only free calls (courtesy from the hotel in any case) allowed are from the front desk, as... More

We spent a total of 5 nights here and have no hesitation calling the Ayre Gran Colon Hotel 'home away' despite the limited breakfast selections. It's 25 to 30 minutes walk via Retiro Park to central 'old' Madrid where Sol is. Metro station Sainz de Baranda is on Calle Dr.U...about 8 minutes walk from hotel. The station has some 4... More
