      I've stayed in this hotel at least 5 times and it has always been a great experience. Except for this time. I don't know what changed, but the service was terrible.

      An aging older tourism hotel

      This hotel dates back to the 50's, it has been kept up and is very adequate and comfortable, but in need of renovation and upgrade to more modern standards. The lobby/reception id very small, it is cumbersome to get to the elevators and elevators are very small with room for two or three people, even though the sign says four people max. The dining room is elegant and spacious, breakfast buffet is very good, although I found it somewhat expensive at 15€. This is not out of line most business hotels are on this range, still I thought it is expensive.
      The hotel is in a very good location, on Velazquez street, close to many major sites such as Retiro Park, Puerts de Alcala,Cibeles Plaza Colon, the chic Serrano shopping area, Goya shopping area, close to Metro stations and fine restaurants.
      In spite of its aging nature I'd recommended for a reasonable place to stay in Madrid.

      ... around the majority of the day, went for another run at El Parque de Retiro, and checked out the activities in Colón for the FIBA World Cup. My friend from high school (who is also studying abroad in Madrid) met me to go explore the area. It was mostly for little kids, but there were some cool activities there, sponsored by various international companies affiliated with this years World Cup.

      I was stoked to win a 3-point shooting ...

      ... one although I was more worried for the first exam initially. It was 5 pages where we had to recall all the places we had been and the aspects of Spanish culture we had discussed. I feel like allocating 60 mins and 5 pages for everything we have learned is impossible. I felt like I could have written an entire novel… so the time allocation was difficult, however she let us write in Spanish or English which was helpful. I chose Spanish because I wanted to ...

      ... I had a nice conversation with my old roommate Mary over facebook that was quite lovely AND edifying. :). I think I took a nap at some point as well. I read a lot of articles about what Microsoft is doing recently that had me really happy. Tomorrow is April 8th, which means I can FINALLY put the Windows update on my Surface! Actually, only 15 more minutes! I am VERY excited to do this, although it still won't help with the problem of not really being ...

      ... every bit of the inside was decorated. It was a bit overwhelming but really showed how theatrical and "in your face" the church was trying to be at that time.

      We then had only two days of class and then we were off to Madrid! We got to do and see so many things...First, we went to the Prado museum which had some amazing art - it was especially cool to see the pieces that we had been learning about in class like works ...
