Gran Hostal el Chiscon: Hacienda style original hotel north of Madrid

This hotel is in Colmenar de Viejo, which is a cute small city at the north end of the Madrid renfe high-speed suburban railway net - only 4 stops from the subway stations Chamartin, further going to Nuevos Ministerios and Atoche. Colmenar de Viejo is a nice spanish contrast to Madrid at the edge of the Menzenares sierra / El Pendrizo national park, a "arena de torres" is at the highest point of this small town. It is an old small city - no suburban concrete illness. The hotel is wonderful, only 2 stories high with wonderful stone plate floor (heated in the winter - I was there in February, perfectly warm). It is located in the old part of Colmenar de Viejo, with narrow streets and no big traffic, but not these high crammed tiny-room-houses as in Madrid city center. Very large rooms with very large modern bathroom, perfectly clean, large windows - gives you nice spanish countryside feeling. Only small breakfast (coffee + orange juice + some piece of cake self service), but very moderate prices. Very nice restaurant in the evening - and many small restaurants / bars / shops around in this nice Colmenar de Viejo - there seem to be only original spanish people around here. It has a free closed and guarded parking lot in the cellar if you come by car, and it has free WiFi in the reception and restaurant area.

Large rooms, Large bathroom, free guarded parking, free Wifi, nice hacienda-style architecture, very friendly staff.
