Expert review of JC Rooms Puerta del Sol
Just want somewhere central with a great shower that’s not grotty or grungy? JC Rooms is an upmarket hostal-style place which offers modern facilities and bright décor. If you’re planning on being out most of the time anyway and don’t need a lot of space, it could suit you just fine.
Between Puerta del Sol and Opera metro stations, JC rooms is really handy for shops and sights. The narrow street it is on sees a surprising amount of traffic, but most rooms face an inner courtyard.
The 16 rooms are all different and named after Madrid landmarks. Although small, the bright colours and blown-up photographs make them pleasant to be in and not too cramped. All have free WiFi, large flat-screen televisions and mini-bars. Although the bathrooms are tiny, all have mosaic tiles, hydromassage showers with rain showerheads and hairdryers. ‘Puerta de Toledo’ has orange walls, a green headboard, a black and white bedspread and a bright blue bathroom – no inoffensive neutrals here. ‘Plaza Mayor’ has four beds and gives onto Calle Flora.
The hotel is on the ground floor with a miniscule reception area and a small but light breakfast room. You have to press a bell to get in.
Breakfast is self-service and costs eight euros.
Staff are young and friendly but you’ll probably only see them in passing.
Mostly younger guests who like loud colours and don’t like fussy extras.
