The Posada del Peine is a lovely botique hotel, with an unbeatable location in the capital: a few meters away from Plaza Mayor in Madrid. It is of the Petit Palace chain and has four stars. It is supposed to be the oldest hotel in Spain, since the building was an old inn in the year 1610, renovated in 2005 to house the current 71 rooms hotel.
I definitely liked it and and I thought it was tastefully decorated. The house preserves the original structure and in the decoration they combined country elements like brick walls, wooden beams and forged handrails, with contemporary elements (crystal, design and white leather armchairs, modern lamps, light and straight lines in the furniture, etc.).
They have also put all kinds of technology. In the room we had a flatscreen TV, a laptop with wireless internet and hydromassage in the shower. Of course we had air conditioning and heating, minibar and safe.
The room was large and with modern furniture: a leather and wood headboard, with the night tables and two halogen headlights. We also had a desk (where the laptop was) and the TV above it on the wall. The bathroom was amazing, all white to give the impression of being cleaner if it is even possible, with the shower, the squared marble sink on a wooden worktable, magnifying mirror and hairdryer. However, I found a small drawback: the shower curtain! I think a glass screen would be much better. I guess our room was prepared for handicapped people since there were numerous handles and the shower was at the same level as the floor (I don't know about the other rooms).
It is not a cheap hotel (starting at 100€ for the night), but it is definitely worth a whim because it is right in the center, lovely and you have many services you do not usually find in other accommodations.
It is another concept of a hotel, different to what we are used to. It is characterized by the careful decoration and successful atmosphere.
Everything revolves around cinema. Every room is decorated in a different way, settled in one particular movie, about a particular actress or actor or director. From those dedicated to Amélie, The Pink Panther, Moulin Rouge, Mary Poppins... To those dedicated to Penélope Cruz or Audrey Hepburn, or those dedicated to directors like Almodóvar or Buñuel.
I have to admit that when they gave us the room keys we were all excited to know which one we got and to take pictures inside. The lobby and cafeteria have a special atmosphere. I recommend staying at this hotel.
I was staying in Madrid for three months, and my parents came to visit me for a weekend. They stayed at Hotel Velada, near the end of the Calle Alcala, and we were surprised by the quality of the hotel in terms of value - comparing what they paid and the actual price of the rooms, we were blown away. The price of the double room are 310 without breakfast, because my parents paid 82 euros, and with breakfast and parking! Incredible. You can see it in the pictures. My mother loved that all the bathroom products came in a box, and she could take everything. And breakfast left them satisfied in both terms of quality and quantity.
Situated in a privileged location, Plaza Santo Domingo in Madrid, just in between Gran Vía and Callao, this renovated hotel is a great option to stay in the center of the city or to celebrate a wedding in an urban setting. The special attention to detail, the terrace with a swimming pool on the roof, or the beautiful vertical garden in the splendid lobby make it even better and it is clear that this hotel is an ideal place to stay if you visit Madrid.
Even though it seems obvious, it really isn´t. Every time I have arrived at this hotel (and I have never slept here) they have greeted me with a great big smile and this is very welcome.
This is a very large hotel next to the centre of Madrid and at the same time 2 min. away from the M30 motorway with very good location both for tourism in Madrid and business trips.
It has a terrace at the top where on days of good weather little parties are organized with DJ Fernan Disco which are very lively and fun.
Cibeles Tryp Hotel is situated in Mesonero Romanos street, number 13, that is to say in Madrid's Gran Vía.
It belongs to the Sol Meliá chain. This hotel has 132 rooms with private bathroom, telephone, minibar and wireless internet. They also offer a washing service.
It is a very central location to enjoy the city, maybe a little noisy because Gran Vía is one of the busiest streets in Madrid. The rooms of this four stars hotel cost from 94€ a night and can be booked on their website, with the best price available on the internet.
The rooms are large, with traditional decoration, slightly soulless but at least there is enough room.
The building is the typical big, formal, stone building built in the past century on Gran Vía. You can walk everywhere from the hotel, to Puerta del Sol or the neighborhood of Chueca.
The NH Madrid Nacional is a 4-star hotel ideally located near the Prado and the Reina Sofia art museums, opposite the Botanical Gardens and Atocha Station. It is very cozy despite not being the newest hotel around, and to be honest, the quality is not what you would expect from a hotel chain as well known as NH.
Perfect for any type of event from a small meeting to an international conference of several days. The auditorium can hold more than 2,000 people, and there are more than 50 meeting rooms. The good thing about it is that in the same building where the rooms are, and there are over 800 rooms. Located next to Barajas Airport, it's ideal for national and international visitors, with shuttle every 30 minutes going to all the terminals. The Wi-Fi is free and available throughout the hotel, and their buffet serves 800 people.
Highly recommended. We used booking.com and got a double room for 89 euros / night. When we arrived, they didn't have what we had wanted, so we were given a triple instead, for the same price. It was a very large, clean room, overlooking Gran Via, but quiet. The beds are super-comfortable, with controls to adjust the height. The minibar has free drinks (no alcohol). It also has safe, iron and hairdryer. There was a rooftop jacuzzi included in the price, open until mid-September. Yes, it's small, and the water was cold, but the views over Madrid are priceless! In addition, the hotel has a hairdresser and spa. The spa has some great discounts. For example they do 2x1 on Wednesdays, or every day from 14.00 to 15.30 it costs 9 / person. No parking, but it has an agreement with a nearby parking (Tudescos), so you can park on the cheap. It is essential to ask the hotel to put their stamp on the parking ticket to get the discount.
El Barrio de Las Letras de Madrid is known not just for the quotations from famous writers in its streets, but also as a perfect place to experience the local culture and cuisine. You can walk everywhere, and on the first Saturday of each month there's a traditional market with lots of activities involving music, theatre and tastings. The hotel rooms are comfortable with a modern design, the service is great, and the staff are friendly and polite. It has all mod cons, and the area offers many entertainment options and food.
Once again, I chose to stay in a hotel from the High Tech chain. This is outside the city, near the airport, so it's ideal if you're just passing through Madrid. In fact, its location near the airport is very convenient. The hotel stands on a quiet street, with little traffic. It offers a gym and outdoor pool for sports, and the rooms are very comfortable and modern (shower with massage jets) and quite luxurious (plasma screen, air conditioning, etc..) You will not be disappointed. However, for a extended stay, its location on the outskirts of the city wouldn't be ideal.
One already knows what there is in a NH Hotel, or in this case, in an Hesperia Hotel. Hotels with a characteristic signature making them ideal for business travels or "city breaks". In this case it is definitely true.
The Hesperia Hermosilla is a boutique hotel (quite small but well arranged) with as a strong point a privileged location in the center of Madrid, a few meters from Serrano or Velázquez street and therefore close to El Retiro.
It has an abundant buffet for breakfast and excellent service, so I recommend it to everyone looking for a hotel without pretensions but with all necessities in an ideal area of the center of Madrid.
