Right in the Heart of Madrid
This hotel is situated right in the heart of Madrid, just outside the GranVia Metro Station.
It is situated on the 6th floor of an old building and it has only 17 rooms on one floor. The lifts take you to a small reception which is open 24 hours. Some of the receptionists could not speak English but check out was the quickest ever in our history of travelling. They also have a fridge with drinks and water and they were very cheap and worth to buy from the hotel than from other shops.
Our double room was good sized with a seperate bathroom, good sized wardrobe, desk and a tiny balcony with views of Gran Via.
It was basic but clean.
Unique Quality: The Unique quality was the address of this hotel as it is just outside the Gran Via Metro, in the middle of everything.
Some reviews provided bad comments on this hotel since just outside the hotel it is full of prostitues all day long. This is because the hotel is on C Montera street corner with Gran Via. The reviews about prostitutes are true and I had to see for myself to be able to write this review. The place is very safe because the very wide street is full of cafes with outside covers, McDonalds, shops and full of people amonst which are prostitutes and police on patrol. If you are a gentle man on your own then yes these prostitutes will do their utmost to reach out to you but if amongst a group of friends or couples there should be no issues.
Directions: Just outside the Gran Via Metro Station.
Next door to McDonalds Restaurant.
The good and the bad
There’s good news, and bad news….
Which do you want first?
The Good: A genuinely nice hotel for the very modest price of 55 euros for a double, in a pretty 7 story tall building, with elevator. Clean, plain, decent enough bathrooms, good security, aircon worked fine, password-secure wifi (but be sure to ask for a room close enough to receive it, some rooms are just out of range), 24 hour front desk, right next to a metro stop (Gran Via) and an easy walk to most sights in the center of the city.
The Bad: It is located on THE prostitute street in Madrid (C Montera). I don’t mean one or or a dozen. I mean 50, 75, 100 prostitutes at virtually all hours of the day. The street itself is not very attractive, and all the construction and resulting dust at the other end at Placa del Sol just made everything look all the worse.
We ended up there because the person we entrusted to make our reservations at another hotel screwed up, and that hotel got us in here. I don’t think I’ll stay here again.
Directions: Corner of Gran Via Metro Stop
