How to Get There
Really wanted to stay in this hotel as it was highly recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed, the reception staff were friendly and helpful and check in was quick and efficient. We stayed on the tenth floor which was designed by a Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. We found the room quite dark and consequently didn't feel like we could sit and spend time there, but then who wants to waste time in Madrid, the bathroom was amazing and the beds super comfortable. There's a metro and bus stops near by, and only fifteen minutes from the airport.We had a great stay and would recommend this hotel
I’m fine with almost any amount of deposit to be left at the hotels - as long as I’m warned about it in advance.
Upon our arrival at the hotel, with 50kg of luggage and after 5 hours of driving, I’m informed that additional 50 eur per night is to be blocked on my credit card as a deposit. Despite my numerous requests to show where EXACTLY this condition is mentioned, both the receptionist lady, and then her manager, Sara, were saying “That’s the hotel policy”, like a broken record. After I said that I wouldn’t allow that, I was proposed to be reimbursed the initial booking amount of about 400 EUR (which I was charged with, say, 4 days before arrival), and, quote “You might choose another hotel”.
Cool, huh? As a reception manager I’m willing to forfeit the 400 EUR already invoiced fee for a ghost of 50 EUR per day deposit? I fire such people myself in these cases.
However, I decided to concur to the request since I was in no mood and had no strength to look for alternative.
And a cherry on this cake - I specifically noted, whether bellboys would help us with luggage. Two of them were chilling around at the time, none moved a finger.
“You might look for another hotel” - I definitely will next time.
Dear management (in case you read the reviews ) - I’m willing to provide the details upon your request.
Stopped for a long weekend for a wedding. Great location on the edge of the city with easy access to the Metro, 2 stops to the city.
Each floor is different, we explored them all. Spotlessly clean, comfy, took us a bit to solve all the buttons in the room to operate the curtains etc but staff very helpful.
Breakfast good quality, plenty choice.
Loved it and will return.
Brilliant service for the wedding too, lovely food, service, nothing too much trouble.
