Excellent Central Madrid Visit
Theporpery is amazing, all remodeled a few years back and best view in the city in the 360 Bar, open to the public, for a fee, but free with special entrance to hotel guest. The central location is perfect, quick access to the metro or walking distance toany great spots

Excellent hotel in a very good location
Overall this was a great experience. The hotel is very well kept and excellent staff that is ready to help. Location is really good for many of Madrid’s attractions although a little distant to others such as Museo Del Prado. Breakfast was great with many options and the rooftop bar is amazing. Now, although I gave it a 5 overall score I think that families traveling with kids should be aware about a couple things: (1) Pool is small - pictures in the website make it look bigger than it is. Not bad but you need to know this; when my kids got there and realized how small it was and how busy it was in the outside of the pool, they lost interest in getting into the pool and, (2) this is a very popular hotel so expect a lot of traffic in the lobby and lines to check in. I moved to a different hotel as I needed to be closer to Plaza Mayor for my second half of the trip. I can tell you that this second hotel (which is also a high end hotel) was not better than RIU. Mainly because of the rooms and the breakfast options in this second hotel. If traveling with families you should consider this hotel as a good option (although consider my comment about the pool)

10 star hotel
Location, location, location! Perfect stay. Room was very big. Hotel staff was unbelievable. The rooftop bar is a must see. Metro station is right across the street.

8/10 Very Good

Price doesn't match the experience.
Check in was smooth and I was able to check in early, which I appreciated. The hotel is in an awesome very walkable location next to Gran Via and of course, you can't beat the views from the rooftop. However, the hotel lets outside people in to visit the rooftop and as a result, the guests don't receive great service when ordering food and drinks as it was extremely crowded and a bit chaotic at times. It took me an hour to get my food after I put my order in. The pool was more like a stew of people - it was extremely small and overcrowded. For the price, I'm not sure it is worth it.

Excellent location. Easy access to Metro, many restaurants and shops. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived early and they held our luggage and gave us an early check in. Room was fantastic and bed large, even by American standards. Would stay here again

Fun touristy hotel
The hotel was nice. Shower head was leaking and not full strength, could have used a few more pillows and a light blanket instead of just sheets on bed but otherwise it was a great hotel. The food at the bar was good!

Great hotel at the perfect location
Great location, right on Gran Via, walking distance to all main historic sites, very close to the Royal Palace which means super safe area to walk around. Our room was very spacious with nice city views. Rooftop bar with 360 breathtaking views
