I chose this hotel because it was pretty close to the area where I will be working. It is a very good option, room are wide and clear, bathroom includes all you need, the WIFI works very well and people were superkind. I will repeat there everytime I need to go to that area.

From the hotel you can easily walk around the city. You can walk from this place to the train station at about 300meters i think. We choose to walk around until we reach the city center about 6-8 km. walk . The city is very safe even at night. You can easily go around in the city without the fear...

The Hotel is situated away from the city centre in a quieter suburb to the East. On arriving at the hotel I needed to enter the underground carpark. The entry gate was raised with no problems. From the car park there is a lift up to the reception area. Booking in went smoothly and I was given instructions on how...

I stayed in the hotel two weeks in July and one week in May. The hotel was very good with excellent cleanliness. It around 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station. It is good location for business trip but quite far away from city center if you travel in Madrid for vacations.

Second time staying here - have to admit I'm not keen. Both times the dinner was a bit grim. Hotel is modern enough, but the power sockets in my room had bent pins and therefore didn't work. When I asked for an iron to flatten my clothes - I got exactly what I asked for I.e. an iron without an...

GOOD * Nice modern design theme running throughout this newis hotel; clean sharp lines and a restricted palette meant it all felt unified from lobby, to corridor, to room. All neatly summed up by the quirky tall light column in the room (These sort of things do matter to some guests :-} ) * Large spacious bed (only after me...

A clean hotel, located near metro. All the things you find in four star hotels are kinda there - room service, mini bar, huge comfy bed. Breakfast buffet is not always included in the price and is a bit poor, if, again, you compare it to other hotels of that level. The gym is really small, only for working out...

Very good hotel for business or pleasure! The breakfast has good options of bread, cheese, ham, sausage, fruits, yogurt, tea, coffee, milk, water and cakes. The only thing that I would like to improve is the internet speed. I have a web meeting with customer at night in US and the audio has disconnected many times.
