Great place to stay
Fantastic location and friendly daytime staff.
Unfriendly nighttime staff member.
For the price this hotel was excellent value. Rooms were clean however very small, the shower was also small.
Shower was too small.
Good, clean, modern rooms. Nice bathroom. Very convenient location. Internet available.
Area frequented by prostitutes, though we did know this from previous reviews so not a problem.
free wi fi, helpful staff, good location
internal noise - locks opening/closing, walking/talking in hall very loud and reverberating.
Everything was perfect with the hotel and I have made another reservation to next month. The price of the hotel was 90 € for a double room at the hotel but it is half price at booking.com. Thank you booking.com.
There was nothing bad with the hotel.
very good position in the city centre, very clean, new, nice hotel
thin walls, you could hear all the sounds - very noisy shower from next rooms at 2am, disturbing lift sounds,
Very clean room, hotel have been renovated. Nice bathroom, TV in the room. Very close to Gran Via.
Staff hardly speak English. The hotel surrounding in not nice.
Almost nothing, just the location near Gran Via
The street in which this hostel is located in is full of cabarets, prostitutes, bars etc. I think that this street can be very dangerous. Pavements were covered in vomits, there were drunk people shouting on the street all night, it was impossible to sleep properly with the balcony door opened and the room was very hot. The receptionist lady smelled of alcohol and was not very polite.
The staff was nice and the rooms were clean.
The site didn't mention that the hostal is situated in a bad neighborhood, with prostitutes on the street, it has no parking and the nearest one is very expensive (26 Euro/day), the rooms have no air conditioning so we couldn't sleep because of the heat and the noise from the club across the street.
Very clean, excellent value for money.
Location - it appears to be in the middle of the Red Light District!
price, the room was good with LCD TV, excellent location in the centre
