There were 11 of staying in this hotel for my stag weekend. The main reason for picking this hotel was because of it's location - it couldn't have been any better.
If I remember correctly we paid £68 for 3 nights and it was very good value for money. The hotel was clean and tidy.
The only downside was that because it was fronting a road there was quite a bit of noise - but that shouldn't worry you if you are up and about sight seeing from the crack of dawn.
Unique Quality: The bottes of beer were only 2 euro in their "bar".
The shower was excellent.
The staff helped us get tickets for a Real Madrid March.
There is a shuttle bus service which was very handy..
Directions: Near the Purto del Sol
Ok the primary reason I stayed here was location. This hotel is located in the virtual centre of Madrid and close to most of the important attractions. The second reason I stayed here was because it was a Best Western and at the time they were easy to reserve over the phone (no internet back then).
Now the down side. All you are really paying for here is the location. The hotel itself, or at least during my visit in 1994, was not very good. The walls are thin, hence there is lots of noise, especially from the elevator. The plumbing was so so and there was not even a television in my room. This last point I understand has changed. When your jetlagged as I was you would rather stay in than wander around the Puenta de Sol in a daze. For what I got, everything was overpriced by a mile. At the time of my visit it cost me about $75.00CDN to stay here. Even then it was the most overpriced hotel I had stayed in Europe. Today it would set you back about 100 Euros to stay here if you are a couple.
Unique Quality: The hotel is located half a block south of the Puenta de Sol which like the centre of Madrid if not Spain. The staff was fairly friendly. There are lots of good restaurants and bars nearby.
Directions: Just south of the Puenta de Sol in the city centre of Madrid
