    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.

    Today's tour was a little breezy on top of a double decker bus. The bus took us on a tour of historic and modern Madrid. A few of us got off to do a little shopping and the soccer lovers headed to see the Real Madrid stadium. "The stadium was massive and it was really cool to see all the trophies and to learn the history of the Real Madrid soccer team. We even got to see the recently redesigned World Cup! OMG and ...

She did not speak English, but showed me around the apartment and explained (as best as she could) the remaining beds/rooms that were open. I decided to take the 1 bedroom since no one else had seemed to want it for its smaller space it provided. After I settled in, I checked my phones and charged them to make sure I was set to go before our welcome ...

    After my meal and a brief look around, I found Kate sitting on a shady edge of a fountain cooling her feet. I was soon at it also and we rested a little from the heat of the day.

    There are a lot of shops nearby and Jackie and a number of other women were away shopping instead of having lunch. John was away trying to find a pub so he could watch his beloved Rabbitoh’s ...

    and government, to food and ordering in a restaurant- which as you can imagine
    is very useful. After class today a few of us got together and tried to book
    some things for our upcoming Barcelona trip. The meeting ended up getting
    extremely stressful because trying to book things for a large group of people
    is hard and we weren’t able to meet everyones needs. We ended up booking a

    My parents always wanted me to be a preist but I wanted to travel the world. One day, I went to my parents with the courage to tell them that I wanted to travel the world and my father told me that its only shepherds who were able to and so I then decided to be a shepherd.On one of my journeys to Tarifa, I met a merchant's daughter who I spoke with for a little while and which I liked. ...
