A great find! It oozes old-world charm while appealing to travelers like myself who are seeking budget-friendly accommodations. Accessed on the second floor of a grand old building right on the bustling Grand Via, via a perfectly marvelous classic old-world elevator (or, take the stairs). Someone will buzz you in upstairs, 24/7. Rooms are impeccably clean, and the bed was very comfortable. High ceilings, soaring windows overlooking the street--it was possible to shut out the light with those external shades so common in Spain. Of course there's street-noise, but after hours it's really not much. Amenities are minimal of course, but who cares? This place is a gem for world travelers who are looking for a great deal.
