    To long ago to remember

    by

    It was many of years ago and after looking at the website, the hotel has gone through some renovations. I just remember it being an old style place, where you could hear everything. I'm sure some of those qualities have not changed.

    Unique Quality: Antique style

    Good enough

    by

    This hotel was perfect for me - that means don't expect excessive luxury there.

    The room was pretty small: the two twin beds had no space separating them. We had a small TV, a private safe, a desk and a cupboard with hangers. It was clean and although the hotel doesn't have air conditioning, with the window opened we got fresh air and we never felt embarrassed by the heat.

    (If you need a hairdryer, bring your own - when I e-mailed the hotel to ask if they provided them, they said yes, but when we got there we were told they didn't have hairdryers.)

    The lift is very small and takes some time to come and pick you up - we were on the second floor so we only used the lift the first day to carry our luggage upstairs.

    The reception staff was very polite, friendly and never seemed annoyed by our questions. They spoke English, as opposed to the restaurant staff, who didn't seem to.

    Speaking of which: the continental breakfast consisted in café con leche, orange juice, magdalenas valencianas (some sort of small cakes), ham, bread, jam, cheese and crescents. We went one night for dinner and tried the paella for two, which was very good, although three or four persons could easily have shared it: they were huge portions.

    Finally, the location is perfect if you plan on visiting on foot: we didn't take the metro, or the bus or a taxi at all. However, there are various bus stops and metro stations all around. The hotel is a few blocks away from Puerta del Sol, and next to a small plaza, the downside of which being that it does get pretty noisy at night, so you might wanna bring earplugs. As for me, except for the first few nights when we heard a lot of cars honking, I slept perfectly well without earplugs.

    An hotel near Puerta del Sol.

    by

    This four star hotel lies not far from Plaza del Sol and so it is quite near Plaza Mayor.

    When I stayed there it was a basic accomodation. The breakfast was good even if not special.

    Unique Quality: The location.

    Directions: This hotel is not far from Sevilla metro stop.

    Simple and Comfortable! Superb Locale!

    by

    I had a conrner room and it had a huge balcony which overlooked a superb view... all the different avenues, including the one leading to Puerta Del Sol.

    One thing about the balcony though.. it isn't a real balcony which we could simply walk out to. It was outside the toilet window and we had to step on the chair to climb through the window! haha

    And just across the hotel are the two streets with lots of clubs and pubs!

    Directions: Nearest Metro Station is Sevilla.

    Great location

    by

    The hotel has an absolutelly great location, at least for those who can sleep when it's really loud around. It's clean and has a huge bathroom (another royal thing in the city).
    It doesn't have an air conditioning though and the breakfast is really poor, just croissant and yesterday's roll with a slice of bad ham. There is Starbucks and some other places to choose from all around so you'll survive.

    Directions: Just 2 minues walk from Puerta del Sol

In Granada - Hotel Los Angeles...

by dumitrescu

In Granada - Hotel Los Angeles (***) - air coditioning, pool, a good cook and a small parking lot in front of the entrance.

In Seville - Hotel Abril (in the historic center of the city). The parking might be a problem - in case you don't find a spot in front of the building, there is an payed (15 euros / 24 h) underground facility just around the corner.

Madrid - Hotel Gran Velasquez (****) - rather expensive - we have been moved here from Hotel Asturias (**) were we had reservations because of some conference...at no extra charge!! lucky us!
for ** and *** around 6o euro / room with breakfast included
for **** u don't wanna know :)

Decent hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Rammex

We stayed at Hotel Asturias in Madrid for 6 nights. The room we had was large. It had more than enought closet space, a safe that cost 1 Euro every time you wanted to open and close it, a television with several channels and a very large bathroom. The front desk staff did their job but was not the friendliest group I have ever encountered. The location and price of the hotel are its real selling points. You are walking distance to everything: Plaza Mayor, Gran Via, the museums etc. There is a metro stop and a Starbucks coffee shop less than a block from the hotel. The hotel is clean and adequate. The room we had, 301, had a large window to the side street. Madrid is noisy at night and the street noise might keep you awake. Our room did not have air conditioning but the cross breeze from the two windows kept the room quite comfortable in June - August might be another matter.

This hotel was good for the price and its location can't be beat. We paid $80 per night and $58 for Sunday night.

Horrible

by TripAdvisor Member hotmel

We stayed at Hotel Asturias in Madrid for 3 nights. Can just say that it was a horrible experience. After reading the negative reviews on trip advisor we decided to cancel but it was too late and a cancellation would have cost us. The room we had was large, with a television and a spacious bathroom,no minibar,no AC, no fan and tired looking finishes. The front desk staff did their job and were pretty helpful. I was carrying medication that required a fridge and they provided storage for me so that was great. The location of the hotel is only its selling point. Walking distance to almost everything: Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, Retiro Park, the Prado & Reina Sofia museums etc. Sol is a happening square that’s just 5 minutes walk away and you can take a metro to get anywhere. Puerta Sol is undergoing some renovation and the whole square is fenced up, it is one busy construction site. The room was located on the second floor, with a large french window to the side street opening into a balcony. Madrid is noisy at night and the August Madrid heat left us no choice but to leave the window open as the room had no air conditioning. Although we are pretty heavy sleepers the noise was unbearable until the wee hours of the morning. Cars honking, people chatting loudly on the streets below all night. I think there was a night club in the vicinity as I noticed many exhausted inebriated youngsters trudging down the street at 7 in the morning. Spain won their first basketball championship that evening and it was an all night party on the streets outside that getting a sound sleep was a perpetual dream. We ended up sleeping bare backed on the cold floor !
Will not recommend this hotel, I am sure you can get another decent hotel nearby especially with AC during the hot summer months.

Which is best: Hotel Asturias or Hotel Europa ?

by Hans_from_Belgium

Hi to all Madrid-people

can someone help me out... I would like to choose between two hotels and maybe someone out there has some critics about them (good or bad) ?

So what would be the best choice ? They are both located next to Puerto del Sol :
1. Hotel Asturias Sevilla 2 28014 Madrid
or
2. Calle del Carmen 4 28013 Madrid

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated !

Thanks
Hans

Re: Which is best: Hotel Asturias or Hotel Europa

by SirRichard

Hola, Hans
Both hotels seem the same standard (tough I haven't been in), have same rates, and are similarly located.
Europa is closer to Puerta del Sol, in a pedestrain commercial street. No cars in that street, so maybe quieter, though there is a lot of people around (in commercial hours).
Asturias is in a street with cars, so maybe is a little more noisy.
Both are near subway entrances.
