            • Single
              9.2

              Very friendly staff, good location, near the main attractions, clean e cosy.

              breakfast was ok, could be better

            • Single
              9.2

              Brilliant location and fantastic price. Nice rooms, which were very clean.

              The breakfast was fairly limited, would have liked some fruit and eggs. In the room, the wall between the bedroom and bathroom was glass, ok for me travelling alone, but if I was with a partner I wouldn't have liked it, maybe I'm old fashioned though.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Location, confort and cleanness was the best of the hotel. Everything else was also good. If it wasn't for the only negative thing that I'll comment in red color, I would stay there again.

              The only negative thing I found, but even being just one thing is really annoying, is that there was not even one night where I could sleep from when I went to bed to when I got up, in one go, because of the noise. As the hotel is located on a main street, and the room faces that street while teenagers are partying upto 6 or 7 AM every night, everything is heard as if everything happened inside the room, even when being the 4th floor. The windows should be made of insulating glass. The other big issue related to the noise is also that everything what happened on the neighbour rooms, and the one on top of us, was heard, again, as it was happening inside our room. I've heard all conversations and all kind of noise. The quality of the walls and ceiling doesn't seem to be good.

              Our stay in Madrid in Francisco Hotel was clean pleasant, uneventful, quiet and safe. The only problem was not having a coffee maker, microwave or empty refrigerator to use in room. The breakfast was included but, would have liked some warm breakfast during the winter time, which is when we went. The safe deposit box; We had to pay one euro each time it was used.Each time it was opened we had to pay to lock it again.The location was perfect for Metro use and for walking. Would have liked to have seen more Vegan Restaurants. Maybe in the Future. :) Si!!!!!!!!!!!

              Location is perfect for tourists, hotel looks inside modern or recently refurbished, very clean,excellent value for money

              Noisy, but it goes with the territory (seems Puerto del Sol never sleeps) Most irritating is that tv has only Spanish channels!

              Perfect location. Hotel very clean. Room spacious with very nice decor.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              The hotel was in a perfect location. The room we stayed in was very spacious for a European hotel. We were surprised that we had two double beds, as well as a pullout bed in the living area. Our beds were very comfortable. We really had more than enough room for our family. I loved the bathroom--the marble was an elegant touch. Internet was free--as was breakfast. I thought breakfast was very good--pastries, rolls, ham and cheese, toast, cereal, juice, milk, and coffee. I was very happy with the hotel, the staff, and the location.

              The only thing that slightly bothered me was the construction work that started a couple of mornings before we were out of bed.

              real value for money right in the centre of Madrid.

              9.6

              Clean and well-designed, modern and well-locationed, friendly service

              would like to have hot water pot in the room

              9.2

              Just located in the city center. From outside it has poor view but inside design is very nice. I am recommending this hotel if you like to visit madrid historic places in walking distance

            • Couple
              7.8

              This place is LOUD! We got no sleep here. Very busy street with lots of foot traffic, loud voices, and trash collection in the middle of the night.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              The location was great. Easy to get to the metro, and in close proximity to restaurants, shops, and must-see places.

              staff was great. Excellent location.

              The only thing was the transparent doors of the bathroom was a very bad idea, even if you share the room with your partner or wife you both wouldn't have a privacy we all need whether showering or when using the toilet...

            • Single
              9.2

              - This hotel is the best 2 star hotel. Better than some of the 3 stars. - Affordable and great location in the middle of everything

              - Noisy

              I really liked where the hotel was situated, it was central and perfect for what we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

              On the hotel description it stated there was a bar in the hotel but this was not true once we got there. The first room we were in was much older than most of the other rooms so we had to move.
