    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.

    ... while with the Argentinian. We also met our new dorm mates, 2 29 year old guys from America who we went to the bar next door with. Because it was the Argentinian's birthday they bought her a free drink and somehow I scored one too. My vodka lime and soda was free-poured and half vodka, but still tasted delicious. We sat around the table discussing differences in food, politics, alcohol (at which point the boys ordered a round of fireball whiskey shots for the table) ...

    ... Generally I felt both exams went well and I was so relieved after they were over, but I was so proud of myself because the amount I was able to recall on the exams is proof that this journey was truly educational. I think this trip has taught me so much on so many levels and my desire to learn more has grown. As our culture teacher Cecilia says… the commonality between parachutes, umbrellas, and brains is that they have to be open in order to work. I think opening ...

    ... to be sure - fried bread dough which is then covered in molten chocolate before being consumed ! The hot chocolate arrives in a cup and saucer, the freshly made churros then delivered to your table and the rest is history! Paul was happy to be led astray but equally happy to continue the walking tour afterwards.

    There were numerous museums throughout the city centre, many of them utilising some of the grand old buildings. We spent nearly 4 hours at the ...

    The meeting was in an ex palace (I think). We met Monica there and basically just went over everything we did in the Australian orientation. The view from their office though was beyond amazing and the sun was setting too which made it even better- I was so ****** at myself for forgetting my phone but I took photos on Nat’s phone which I still have to get off her.

To set the scene, here is a quote from dinner: Me: Do you want some wine? Basketball Superstar: Wine makes my head crrrazy. I only like Patron. Like Leetle Wayne says, YEEEAH! Imagine that coming out of the mouth of a 7 ft tall, baby-faced, fully tatted black guy with a ...
