          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.

          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.

          Lunch then called and I took my guidebook's advice to eat at El Brillante ... home of the calamari sandwich. Yum! It is also home to some of the loudest staff I have ever heard ...

It might seem strange to have Thai food in Madrid, but I suddenly had a craving for it. Hadnīt had any Thai food since January, after all. I had stir-fried vegetables in a really tasty sauce for my starter, stir-fried chicken with a vegetable ...

Following the palace, we set out to find somewhere for lunch but it was a tricky part of the day at 3:30. Their lunch had ended and dinner wouldn't be served until 9 or 10. It's difficulty to find a place that serves food all day rather than a limited assortment of tapas in between meals. Our first stop ...
