Staff: fantastic, everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff made me feel welcome. Room was standard small for a downtown hotel but clean and comfortable. My room's view was a building across the street so you just have to keep that in mind. Location, easy walk to parks, restaurants, and cheaper talk away places. A couple of hole...

Hotel is clean and in a great location away from the very crowded Center, few steps away from Puerta de Alcalá. Be aware, beds are VERY uncomfortable! My husband and I asked for a double bed, we got two twin beds put together next to each other and they were very cheap beds with an old thin mattress. We had...

The hotel's location is superb!!! Walking distance to many attractions and yet, relatively quiet. During our 6 nights stay, we did not use public transportation or taxis (expect once) to tour around the city. Many restaurants options around the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms are descent in size and clean. We were missing they room kettle...

The hotel was okay. Rooms were nice, newly renovated, but nothing spectacular except for the location. It was off of Calle de Serrano. A perfect street for shopping. Around the corner from the Parque de El Retiro. We loved it because it was walking distance to all we wanted to see, but off of the typical tourist path.

This hotel is incredibly well located, just minutes from Retiro and Banco de Espana. The rooms were very smart and my Queen bed was very comfortable! Staff were very polite and attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.

Highly recommend this hotel. The staff was extremely accommodating, especially Beatrit! She was so nice to us. We got a room upon arrival after our long overnight flight.

This hotel offers understated luxurious environment. Excellent and cordial service. Close to many points of interest in Madrid. We stayed there last year and this year on our way to Andalusia. We are returning for another week stay. Loved it!

My wife and I have stayed here many, many times, and in fact when in Madrid we only choose another hotel if this one is completely full. I know, I shoud delete that sentence and start again, otherwise it will always be full and there will be no room for us, but that is a risk we will have to...

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
