Excellent!!! 👍
We had a very good experience, the place is located in a nice location, less than a block from Plaza del Sol. Excellent chopping and food area. I highly recommend this place, room was clean with friendly staff.

If you're in Madrid for only a day or two, this is a great location for the price range, also if you don't mind the noise of all-night (until 7 am) revelers! The receptionists were very nice and helpful.
