I stayed here for 3 days during Holy Week. The hotel is a pleasant 15-20 walk from the touristic area or a brief ride on the metro (remember to save the metro card for reuse). Lodging outside the popular areas is wonderful as one gets a respite from the crowds and can become familiar with the neighborhood. The hotel clerks...

This is a very clean well run hotel where all the staff work hard and try very much to please. The lady in the dining room never stops working, replenishing the buffet food, clearing and resetting tables making sure breakfast runs smoothly. It was very cold whilst we were there and the lady on reception came to our room twice...

First let me comment how lovely the staff are. I caught a Madrid bus which came in at 5 ( I thought 6). I didn't approach the hotel until 7 ( I thought 8), so they could hold my bags. Now they went above the call of duty and let me have a room so I could have a shower...

The hotel is tucked down a side street about five minutes from the metro line near the stop known as Marques, this is the line that goes directly to and over the river Douro (yellow line d) so very easy...

Positives: lovely, helpful staff. Spacious, clean rooms. Secure parking in the basement of the hotel. Good value. Things to consider: it's a 2-star hotel. So not fancy, and breakfast is fairly simple. It's a short metro ride to the centre of town, but rather few restaurants and places to eat within walking distance.

It was very nice hotel. Very friendly staff and very good service. It's relatively close to the historic area of the city as well. It is also very easily accessed through public transportation which is a blessing.

really great service and amazing value for money. centre of the city was 15 mins on foot or you could get to the city by metro which is nearby. the staff were very friendly and helpful. breakfast is included which isn't that easy to find in this price range. rooms were clean when we arrived and immaculately cleaned each day....

Good location and good service. Nice two stars hotel, friendly and Nice Staff. Near the metro station "Marques". The room and bathroom are simple but clean. Ideal for people who want to stay all day discovering the city and in the evening return to a Nice and familíar hotel.
