Exellent location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 25, 2007

I was in Madrid for 2 days and this hotel is excellent for a short stay. It is in the middle of madrid and near the plaza del sol and very close to the metro stations, not that you really need to use it much because many of the popular attractions are within walking distance including the Spanish royal palace and Prado Museaum. Lots of shops and ATM's nearby and restaraunts but this is a very touristy part of the city so watch the prices. The breakfast is too expensive, if you go down the street you can find a cafe to eat in for half of the price.

Unique Quality: There is free internet access in the lobby. This hotel probably has the best shower I have every used, there are 8 different shower spikets and a removable shower head. It is also very safe because staff have to buzz you in but is has a 24 hour desk.

Directions: Near Plaza del Sol in the city center

The first hotel hotel

by written on January 10, 2007

There I was, walking from Puerta Del Sol to Plaza Mayor and saw this interesting building that was different from any other structure on that street - Calle de Postas. This street is like an open air museum and every building is posing for a picture.
However, Petit Palace Posada Del Peine is not just a beautiful and well preserved 400 years old house. It claims to be the first hotel of Spain! No worries though, it was fully renovated in 2005.
No, unfortunately, I didn't stay in this hotel, but can certainly recommend it. After all, hotels are a big part of my profession.
So, if you're looking for a unique accommodation equipped with latest technology, including free internet access as well as perfect location, at a very reasonable price then, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Great Central Location

by written on May 25, 2003

This old hotel is charming, clean and has a great location. The rooms are small, but nicely furnished and the bathrooms are excellent (good showers, plenty of room).

They have a tasty full breakfast (be sure to check when you make reservations to find out if it's included in your rate) and free internet - very handy.

Be sure to get an inside room, though. The outside rooms are larger and have nice views of the street, along with small balconies, but since the street musicians and crowds frequently go on until 4:00 a.m. these rooms are very noisy.

Unique Quality: Excellent central location in the heart of the old city, with shopping, restaurants, bars and the metro close by. You couldn't ask for a better location

Directions: Across the street from the large Corte de Ingles department store
