The location was excellent, metro nearby to connect to the airport (2 euro each way!) and the rest of the city and the hotel was in walking distance to shop and to visit different tourist sites. The location of the hotel felt very safe as there is a police station 2 doors down. Staff were very helpful with directions and queries about Madrid. In addition, we had a late flight the last day and the hotel kept our luggage till we needed it, allowing us to roam freely around Madrid for the last few hours! Brilliant service!! Would definitely recommend this hotel.
It is a good hotel, in the city center, just some meters far from Grand Via and close to Santo Domingo station. We book it in a very good price compared to its rating (4stars). The hotel staff, especially at the reception was very friendly and knew perfect English.
In El Coloso i liked his location. Hotel is near to Real Palacio, Plaza Mayor and Plaza del Sol and just 20-30 minutes walk from Retiro park and famous museums. Since i stay just two days in Madrid this hotel was perfect for tourist tour over Madrid.
