      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.

      • four young men on a motorcycle

      March 2:
      • two baby goats, off leash

      • a woman grinding her dinner in the sidewalk (not something to sell; people really *live* in the street here, camped out on their own patch of sidewalk and cooking, bathing, conducting business, sleeping)

Today we walked to see the Plaza de Espana And then Templo de Debod which is an Egyptian temple from 2200 years ago, the time of Cleopatra. After that to Palacio de Conde Duque which had a photographic display of WW1 We then went to a cafe for lunch where very strange things were happening. 3 men were sitting at a table meticulously taking notes and on the table were all sorts of things just like ...

      Whilst there, we bumped into fellow Tanger guests. We knew they were coming to Madrid 1 day after us. What a coincidence! We all agreed Spain was ...

      Often times there were no bathrooms to be found so at any moment you could see guys using any wall

      At 5 we decided that the guys running (Cal, Christian, and Matt) should get in line on the street
