Great room in downtown Madrid
Great room! The location is perfect, the room is a little cocoon. The breakfast was simple but we definitely enjoyed it

Friendly, Cozy and Convenient
The staff was really friendly, Language was not an issue, the breakfast was good and the location is bang in the middle of the city which makes it perfect if you are planning to visit Madrid (2min walk from Chueca and 5min from Sol Metro station). You do however have to climb up a flight of stairs as the building doesn't have an elevator and you are not allowed guests inside your room. Overall a nice friendly and convenient place to live in, in the happening part of town.

No elevator, carrying luggage upstairs is difficult. Staircase are worn out and dangerous. Room is okay.
