    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.

    ... an hour with all the stops of people getting on and off. However when I finally arrived at my hotel I couldn't have been happier! I booked a hotel as it was only €10 a night more than staying in a 14 bed dorm room. Opening the door to a double bed that I had all to myself and a bathroom that I didn't have to share with anyone made me so happy it became apparent just how long I've been sleeping in dorm rooms for, and while their being cheap and great place to meet ...

    ... being the dessert and what looked like offcuts and scraps were the main. It was very disappointing. Up to check out the local shops and look at the fashion before our city tour at 3pm. The tour was ok, but as we saw many of the places the night before getting to the Tapas restaurant, most people were tuned ...

    ... Jewish Quarter to see the Sinagoga del Transito. Inside the synagogue there are Jewish artifacts including costumes, menorahs, and books. It was constructed for Jews with Christian approval by Muslim craftsmen. Toledo has a three-culture legacy that is very evident in this synagogue. Across from the synagogue was a large plaza on the bluff above the Rio Tajo (Tagus River). There was a great view of the river gorge from the bluff. ...

    ... atmosphere was fantastic. We were at the back of the north goal on the 4th tier but still had great views of the action. The boys were loaded with bags of sweets from the numerous stalls outside. Although we arrived cold 30 mins before kickoff we looked up and enormous heaters had come on - the whole ground is heated! Gradually the ground filled and by kick- off was pretty much ...

    ... I've passed out before take off for a few minutes, been thrown wide awake by the scream of the engines, then gone back to sleep shortly after we're in the air. To sum up, Valium has done **** all but make me more nervous. I wish someone would slip something into my milk like they do with BA Baracus.

    Ahhh speaking of I shall miss you. Now you're nothing more than large collection of Lego bricks 35,000 feet below. I'm ...
