    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.

    ... the planter would just refuse to sit up straight. The woman ended up slinking away, pretending she wasn’t involved.

    From here we walk the short distance to the El Pasaje for a light dinner, quite Ok, but not up to the previous standard, with the pork underdone, with not as much salty crust on it.

    ... I have a Seafood Paella in my sights for this evening.

    We are staying in a lively part of the city and the area is known for its bars and restaurants and every second building is dedicated to either eating, drinking or both. Anke was correct when she said although they don't sleep on the streets, the Spaniards definitely live on them. She said they are never inside their homes (within reason of course) and after seeing the life on every street ...

    ... a restaurant I saw on Anthony Bourdain's tv show. Very good and unique. For dessert we ordered kryptonite- a portion of the cost goes to a charitable agency. It was served by a Super hero in cape carrying the pistachio ice cream in a coffee can with dry ice. Helmet and cape reminded me of " super Grover" from Sesame Street. I think he was just the poor dishwasher.... Accompanied by small speaker playing Star Wars ...

    ... was still pretty good. So today I spent a cracking day wandering around Madrid with Enrique, who I had met in Malaga and heard all about his crazy adventures in Granada. We had a chilled out lunch in the park and went on an awesome wild goose chase to find his dad some marzipan. Then we had a sweet tapas dinner and off I went. This time I made the train and it's a damn good thing too, because I fly out of Lisbon tomorrow night and really couldn't afford to miss another bloody ...

    ... but the food is delicious - especially washed down with a glass of cider or beer. We ordered some olives to pick at whilst sipping our natural cider. We decide on chorizo to start which was moist, succulent and full of flavour. This was followed by roast chicken with a crisp and tasty skin covering the moist and tender meat underneath accompanied by a large bowl of mixed salad. A slice of cider tart provided the perfect final course.
