"Okay hotel for young couple"
At least 10min walk from the metro and the streets leading to the hotel is too quiet and dark at night.

Clean and spacious rooms, very courteous and helpful staff. I would suggest adding a tea kettle with complimentary coffee and tea in each room, since the reception/restaurant area is located at the main Hotel down the street. I had to go ask for hot water every day and it was unpleasant not to be able to have a coffee in the morning. Other than that it was a great stay.

"Not a place to be"
Hotel is very much over priced, for check and check out you need to go down the street with all your bags and then bring them up as well..... Breakfast was paid but for my surprise its was not a buffet one and a worst break fast i have ever had in my whole traveling ..... I would never recommend to stay over here.

"'ole Madrid"
The hotel was ok. The staff was awesome (Daniel & Damon?)It was close to the Gran Via and Plaza Sol and in the area we needed to be. It's next to a hostel, but it was still quiet. The breakfast was simple but good. There is parking close by, but no need for a car as hotel is a close walk to eateries or bars plus the metro is a short walk. The decor of black and white was so-so because the hallways are black and not well lit. Room was clean but a little tight. The lobby closes at 8:00pm and you will need a passcode to enter. All in all, good choice for the cost.

"DIFFERENT!"
This hotel is very close to the Gran Via and walking distance to Sol, Chueca, La Latina, and many other areas of madrid. It has no manned reception, having to check in and out at a nearby hotel, but that doesn't bother us. There is a buzzing nightlife in the little streets around the hotel and. The room we had was on the small side but spotlessly clean and very well decorated, and the bed really comfy! There are no bar or restaurant, but in a city like madrid it's not needed, enjoy chocolate con churros for breakfast in sol, lunch tapas with a few beers in any bar you see, be adventurous and walk onto any bar you see! And have dinner at any restaurant in town center! Lovely stay, definitely returning to hotel Life

"Volvería definitamente"
Muy buen hotel. Lindo estéticamente, limpio, bien ubicado... A tener en cuenta, que la recepción del hotel es en otro edificio. Un día nos quedamos sin papel higiénico en el baño y lo solicitamos, pero nunca lo trajeron. El hecho de que la recepción esté ubicada en otro edificio puede complicar un poco la comunicación y por ende la eficacia. De todos modos, volvería sin dudarlo!

"Una cabaña encima de un árbol"
Elegí el hotel Life por su ubicación, al borde de la calle del Pez y en el corazón de Malasaña. Me convenció su estética- en las imágenes parecía tranquilo y muy cuidado- pero al llegar me sorprendió ver cómo la realidad superaba la propaganda. Se trata de un pequeño rincón, decorado con un gusto exquisito, donde se respira calma y sosiego. La habitación era espaciosa y las camas parecían de heno; el baño amplio y con todas las prestaciones para descansar (había bañera!) y los muebles te hacían sentir que estabas en aquel escondite con el que soñabas de crío: una cabaña en lo alto de un árbol en el corazón de madrid. Solo espero q no se estropee y pierda el encanto, q suban los precios y descuiden el trato u olviden que muchos nos gusta escaparnos a sitios así, donde podemos hacer del viaje- de todo el viaje- una aventura con la que seguir soñando.

Para descansar después del largo dia recorriendo las calles de Madrid, llegar a este hotel con un ambiente totalmente tranquilo es lo mejor, sólo descansar sin bullicio y sin personal de limpieza que esté estropeando esos momentos. Sólo detallitos que hay que arreglar en la habitación donde estuve la manija de la puerta del baño no estaba instalada bien y ya tenía la pared un orificio, de ahí en fuera todo muy bien.

El Hotel Life es un auténtico tesoro del diseño en pleno centro de Madrid. Han cuidado cada detalle y eso se nota en la calidez de la habitación. Soy muy sensible a estas cosas y no paré de hacer fotos durante mi estancia! Por aportar algo de crítica constructiva, el "armario" puede quedarse escaso para largas estancias y la luz del baño es un pelín escasa para maquillarse. ;-) Pero en general es un hotel EXCELENTE. Repetiré.

Hotel económico y simple muy aceptable, muy cerca de Gran Vía y Malasaña. El diseño del hotel es agradable, sin lujos, por ejemplo las camas, la televisión con los canales desordenados y un mando básico de v+/- y p+/-, no hay armarios ni cajones solo un perchero y mesas sin cajones, no hay recepción en el hotel cuando llegas tienes que ir al Hotel Abalú (A 50m solo) y allí te dan las llaves, cobran...el día de salida te cobran por la custodia de maletas 1 euro si quieres dejarlas un rato y dar una vuelta, cosa que muchos hoteles ya ofrecen, solo que aquí tienen el feísimo detalle de cobrarte 1 euro, queda fatal el detalle. Al llegar nos dieron una habitación que no estaba hecha todavía (a las 14h), nos la cambiaron por otra que tampoco estaba hecha, esperamos unos 20 minutos para poder entrar a la habitación, y no pasa nada, y tuvimos que cambiar 2 toallas que estaban sucias, entonces luego molesta que te pidan 1 euro por la custodia de una maleta durante unas horas....Recomendable por ubicación, precio.

Abbiamo alloggiato in hotel per 4 notti e devo dire che ci siamo trovati molto bene. Il personale conosce poco l'inglese ma con un pò di intuito si comunica benissimo anche in spagnolo. Molto gentili. Camera pulita, sufficientemente grande e silenziosa nonostante l'hotel si trovi in una traversa della GranVia! Ubicazione perfetta per chi come noi è stato a spasso per la città e ha utilizzato la camera solo per dormire. Consiglio quest'hotel anche per il buon rapporto qualità/prezzo.

"CÉNTRICO"
Hostal modesto, pero limpio. En la habitación se oye mucho el ruido de la calle, que aunque es estrecha y no hay tráfico de coches, se oye a la gente que pasa hablando. También niños jugando a la pelota. Lo peor de la estancia es que las fotos que tienen colgadas en internet no se parecen en nada a la realidad. N/habitación no tenía cortinas, sino contraventanas. De los apliques que hay a ambos lados de la cama, nosotros sólo teníamos la parte redonda, no había bombilla ni porta-bombilla. En una mesilla había una lamparita de mesa. Lástima no haber hecho ninguna foto de la habitación para que quien lea ésto pueda comparar y juzgar por sí mismo de lo que se ve en las fotos a la realidad...

"Basic"
09/11/15 Christine T Swindon, United Kingdom
Given the time we arrived my friend and I decided not to get the metro as we were advised to do which was just as well as we would have headed for the Grand Vie station as shown in picture of hotel, thus is deceiving as hotel no where near this station, plus we had not realised that you have to check in at a different hotel so had asked the taxi driver (who spoke no English) for the Hotel Life which he managed to find at last with the help of his sat nav only to find that we had to go to another hotel for check in. Directions on door not very clear so went the wrong way very scary when very late at night down a dark side street in a city we had never been to before and we being to elderly ladies. With the help of 3 young local lads we finally found the hotel we needed to check in at. When finally getting into our hotel we found it to be very nice, but basic, bird song playing as you go into hotel very annoying as could hear up in our room (107) and wanted to shoot in by the end of our stay ( 3 nights were long enough). Very noisy street especially during the day when we went back to hotel to chill out during the day balcony doors did not close properly so could not shut out the noise. 70 channels on large flat screen TV but not one English Channel so could not catch up on news back home in the UK. Toilets downstairs terrible no seat on one and no locks on doors. Room was clean but only hangers for clothes no drawers. The few hotel staff we meet we're very friendly, but would not stay here again further away from everything than described. But all in all enjoyed our stay in Madrid a lovely city.

07/06/15 MrGV79 London, United Kingdom
Very clean and a great option for a one or two nights in Madrid. If you are looking for a clean bed and good shower and not a view, this is your hotel. The only thing I did not like was that there is no staff onsite. But you just need to walk 2 minutes and there is another hotel with very friendly and helpful staff member.

Couldn't have asked for better. Was in the most perfect location, right in the middle of everything. Only negative was no reception and trying to find the sister hotel for the reception. But breakfast in the sister hotel was lovely. Make sure you check out the rooftop bar around the corner Terraza Gymage, La Mucca and 1862 DryBar. Loved Mercado San Miguel. Brilliant city!

02/06/15 Berivan C London
Great location but cold rooms and very poor WiFi. It didn't work in the room (we stayed in 212) It looks pretty on the pictures but this is not a hotel so lower your expectations if you don't want to get disappointed.There is no reception, no breakfast and in fact there is no one in the building. It is generally a cold building.Check in/out is done in Hotel Abalu's reception (2mins away) but if you arrive early (check in is at 3pm) you have to pay 1€ to leave your luggage's! as Life Hotel don't have a reception and service is covered by Abalu, there should not be a charge! We had problem with air condition on our first day, it didn't blow hot air, second day it did work but room was not warm enough to sit on the sofa/bed without socks, freezing feet..There are lovely vintage lights handing on each side of the bed but it is switched on with very bright white lights on the ceiling, should be able to switch them on/off separately. Also worth to mention that double beds are 2 single beds pushed together and it is not comfortable at all.They don't have international TV channels in case you wanted to catch up on news when you arrive back to your room and have an hour or two to chill out before dinner.. Shower was good, hot water day and night but we were only given 1 towel to share.. There is carrefur express on the corner if you need to buy something and there are few shops near by if you want to buy snacks and fruit. Ojala is a good place to have breakfast and if you like Octopus try La Pulperia de Victoria.

Es un hotel muy atractivo al barrio que está ubicado. Cuenta con decoración vintage y la habitación, no muy grande, pero acogedora. La atención de recepción (en otro hotel muy cercano) muy buena y con simpatía y atención. Limpieza aceptable y nórdico para la noche en estantería por si se necesitaba. El único pero es la calefacción. Una placa muy lenta para calentar y el baño frío. Al salir de la ducha, se nota. Por lo demás muy bien. Hotel muy recomendable.

"Suficiente para visitar Madrid em 2 ou 3 dias"
01/19/16 Marco C Lisbon, Portugal
Hotel muito simples com as paredes do quarto forradas a tábuas de madeira e componentes de ferro (mesa e apoio para cabides de roupa). Não tem recepção (é feita num outro hotel Abalu) e a entrada é feita marcando código na porta de entrada. A entrada é muito gira e tem uma sala com dois computadores disponíveis e um elevador para o piso 1 e 2. É bem no Centro da cidade, junto à Gran Via, e perto de uma paragem dos autocarros da City Tours (os vermelhos). As ruas envolventes assustam um pouco mas com o cair da noite percebe-se que é zona de muitos bares e muito movimento de jovens. Não é hotel para usufruir mas bastante prático e limpo para quem quer visitar Madrid sem gastar muito dinheiro.
