      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.

      ... way back to Spain where it becomes the most important piece of art in all of Spain. I was Exhausted at this point so I walked back to the hotel for a nice nap before heading out for the Tapas dinner. I traced Rick Steve's Tapas guide on Calle de Jesus and found 6 tapas eateries. But after 3 places, I was too full to move on. I tried the seafood shrimp and octopus tapas. Since I can not do alcohol, I ordered mosto, a sparkling grape juice ...

      ... The commute from the airport was painless (and no pickpockets this time!). I booked us a room at a hotel smack in the middle of everything on Gran Via. Besides the amazing location, the hotel is one of the only ones with a rooftop pool! Late at night Gran Via turns into the Time Square of Spain with all the bright lights and no one wanting to sleep. Lots of young people and LOTS of life.

      Then we were off shopping and looking for street food. Before long we found jamon! (we had no pork for 3 weeks), wine, pimentos "yummy". As for the shops, Desigual, Zara, Corte Inglis - they were all there in multiples sites. I like Madrid.

      Before retiring to bed, I went online to make reservations for some fancy restaurants. ...

      ... centre. The bus ride takes almost as long as the train from Madrid!

      Although we could have continued on the No. 9 bus, we decide to splurge on a taxi to our
      accommodation. It’s quite close, through the old town and the Plaza Mayor. The flat, arranged through AIRBNB, is just behind the Cathedral in the old Jewish Quarter. We arrive at the door of No. 9 Calle de la Almuzena. A face peeps out from the window above.
