    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.

    ... from Aspendale (Pauline & Jay) who we have met at the street parties. They lived in Ideal avenue, 1 street away and good friends of John n Barb next door. A stroll down town was interesting, very busy and we sat down to enjoy a cocktail before dinner. It was then I notice large number of young ladies in high heels and not much clothing. Yes, the small section we were sitting in was full of hookers. No one was hungry so a light tapas dinner completed the night.

    ... tapas bar in that it isn't all old timber and dark bars. It's quirky with lampshades of dolls dresses, feather boas, a large painting imitating Michelangelo's Cistine Chapel with the figures replaced by chubby cartoon women. It's off the wall and small. There is more space on the sidewalk than inside and there are two prices for every dish; on served at ...

    ... nope! They reclined less than airplane ones & the train was so ****** and old. It was a nightmare getting on board with all our bags too cos the isle was so skinny we couldn't get our bag down, plus people were sleeping and had their legs sticking out etc...ahh pain in the butt! There was a bloke in our seats so we had to get him to move& we settled in to find it had no power points (the website said they were avail on board) ...

    ... it was just as beautiful, but 4-5 times the size of Central Park! When we finally arrived at the entrance, we were told that we could only ride the cable car round trip. There just wasn't enough time for us to hop off at the other end, so we stayed on for the entire ride. There was a recorded guide that told us what we were looking at while on the 25 minute touristy, but very cool! On the return, the operator forgot to switch our recorded guide ...

    ... slot - even earrings didn't work. Triana's phone was flat also so we ended up going to the cemetery anyway; over half an hour later. They went and visited their grandfather and I got really awkward because I didn't know what to do, I wanted to give them private alone time but didn't want to look rude. Later, Diana met her friend.

    Next stop was Toyota. They were meant to be picking up their cars today but there were money problems ...
