Location

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.

Bedrooms

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.

Public areas

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.

Eating and drinking

Breakfast is self-service and costs eight euros.

Service

Staff are young and friendly but you’ll probably only see them in passing.

Who stays there

Mostly younger guests who like loud colours and don’t like fussy extras.
