      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.

      ... Church in the 600’s it was transformed into a Mosque after the Moorish conquest and was then remade into a Catholic Cathedral in the year 1236. It is often considered one of the best examples of Moorish architecture still standing and it is truly a sight to behold. The scale is hard to imagine but during the Moorish times the mosque could hold 32,000 people (31,000 in the main prayer area and another 1,000 just outside in the courtyard) and within that main ...

      ... in when we did. We were inside the museum right at 6 p.m., and immediately set out on our paintings blitz. The Prado has a lot of masterpieces; its collection of European art is astounding. Unlike the Louvre, it focuses exclusively on paintings, drawings and sculptures, so no Code of Hammurabi or Ancient Assyrian treasures. It does, however, have an incredible amount of Rubens paintings. Dennis was very pleased. Rubens was even the featured ...

      ... still aiming for this square. I noticed that the further in I got, the fewer and fewer people. There was absolutely no sign of either tourists or English of any sort. After ten minutes of walking amongst the houses, cafés and churches it became blurringly obvious that there were absolutely no people. Literally, I couldn't see anybody at all. The cafés were all barred up and the gates to the churches deadlocked. There weren't even any more cars. It was the ...

      I've said a lot about specific things that I have done since being in Spain, but something that I haven't talked about much is the food. Spanish food is definitely an experience. Firstly, the ham. There is an unreasonable amount of ham in every restaurant, every bar, and every grocery store. Ham is a key feature of Spanish food, and there are entire restaurants devoted to celebrating, eating, and talking about ham. There ...
