The location was excellent. It was in the center of Madrid and very easy to get to all of the exighting sights and close to lovely resturants and bars. The two gentleman who ran the hotel were very helpful very kind and made me feel welcome however the lady that helped run the hotel was extremely unkind very cold and made me feel so uncomfortable to even leave my room. The service at the breakfast area was for me the worst part of my stay. The food was just toast and cheese and cornflakes this is something I an do at home and the stuff who ran the breakfast area were very very rude. I was yelled at just because accidently I walked into the kitchen rather then the siiting area. I was spoken to with such disrespect and i felt so uncomfortable to eat there. All I had was bread and left I decided not to eat there again and I found lovely cafes on the srreet instead. I may have had bad expiriances with some of the stuff but the two men who ran the place were very nice very kind and welcomimg. The room was very clean although had alot of dents and cracks on the ceiling the walls and bathroom but it was still clean the bed was nice but needed another blanket. The air-conditioner worked excellenty and was very comfortable. The balcony was very small but ok to stand for abit. Would I stay here again? Taking all the good and bad of this place my answer would be No I felt alittle cheated in the place and so will not be staying there again.
