It’s on the second floor (with lift) of a 19th-century building right in downtown Madrid, a stone’s throw from Santo Domingo metro station. The Gran Vía and Puerta del Sol are a couple of minutes’ walk away.
The 22 rooms are all different and done out in soothing grey tones, and black and white geometric patterns, with wooden floors. 212 is the biggest, a junior suite with a leather sofa.There is free WiFi, air-conditioning and bathrooms have hydromassage showers. Irons and ironing boards are available too. Several rooms are triple bed arrangements.
There's a pleasant reception and lounge area.
Eating and drinking
There are coffee and soft drinks machines in the lounge area. Breakfast is not available, but there are dozens of cafés in the immediate vicinity.
You deal with real people rather than ‘staff’. Quite a luxury these days.
