Buen hotel, un poco alejado del centro, pero en todo caso muy accesibleComment of O. VICENTE , Spain the 2016-09-10
"Nice hotel not far from the city center"
The hotel is quite nice and in a relatively good location. There are many good options for breakfast in the area if you do not feel like eating in the hotel. The hotel staff is nice, the rooms are clean. If you want you can even get some some on the kind of terrace if you do not mind getting out through window :) There are few tube station in a walking distance and you can get to the city center quite far. But be aware that for some lines you might need to walk good few minutes underground.
Comfortable AC hotel. It's location is good with easy access to two Metro stations. the street the hotel is in is not the best just set back off the main road. Standard AC setup but without the surroundings that some enjoy. It would have been good to have a safe in the room. Also at least one English channel (BBC world news or similar) would have been good. I will use again.
This was a lovely hotel in a quiet street in town. Great value for money and excellent staff offering 24hr concierge. It's located in the middle of 2 metro stops only a few minutes walk away for great links to the heart of the city. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable.
"Comfort in room but lacks some charm overall"
Bed/ room: very comfortable bed and duvet; quality linens and towels. Large closet with nice lighting there. Room 310 is superior room with larger size, couch/table/ chair. 2 large TVs also. Lighting is poor as there are no ceiling lights; room is dark with lamp bulbs at 40Watts, even at the desk it is not enough to work for my liking. Window faces back street so daylight is limited. This is really the worst part so if you can get around it, fine. Bathroom: nice size and modern; green marble floor/walls. Good shower & amenities. Towels were really terrific in size and softness. Bathrobe/ slippers also offered. Lobby & hotel: good and helpful staff. I feel that layout of interior is a big issue; maybe this was an apartment bldg in past life' The lobby is modest size and not much else is visible; elevators and dining area is beyond view so there is stark feel and lack of charm to decor although it is modern and good. Like with homes, a large airy and open plan is much more desirable. Nothing to do but go to the room so the need to hang out and have a coffee is simply not an option. No cafe, muffins, or newspapers offered in lobby. Location: walking from Ave de America you go 50+ meters on Cartagena. One must pass an abandoned bldg which now is graffiti filled and home to a street person. Really bad curb appeal here. Otherwise, area is filled with local bars, cafes, etc. That is nice to have so I ate Brkfast at many other places, and one time in hotel. Breakfast at hotel is quite good with espresso by machine available. Prices are borderline high. Overall, I prefer more character in the property and neighborhood. Room itself was very good except the lighting. So, if I need this location again then OK. If not, I will look for another place.
"Decent hotel but needs some modernization"
Good location and value for money. Rich breakfast. Friendly staff. Special for Marriott/SPG Platinum members: free mini bar and breakfast. Whole building would need some modernization. Rooms are a bit run down but still clean.
