Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by david6969 1 night business stay
Very new looking and clean HI-Ex.
Very friendly staff.
Great evening meal , which seems to be from an on-site 3rd party company.
Perfect for my needs, but not not very central as can be seen.
Perfect for the businesspark/industrial area however.
Carrefour tricky to get to , even with the footbridge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bodger59 Good HI Express
I've stayed at my fair share of HI Express Hotels (through Choice - I like the points and I don't like to travel far to the office - I'd rather walk)
The walk to the office is slightly challenging as its on a dual carriageway with bridges crossing it - but no footpaths. I have my high-vis jacket so it feels fairly safe.
The staff are very good and friendly - if a little bit busy at times.
There are a number of bars locally and a fantastic Carrefour across the road with a v friendly bar at one end - tapas at seven o'clock - free !!! (a good tip helps)
Typical HI Express - will use it again
Pros - Ice machine ! - beds lovely - very clean -
Cons - Not a great location for holiday travellers - you need a car - Internet can be slow in the evening

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sally6464 Good room
The room was really nice, all needed was there. I really appreciate the bed and the bathtube.
The breakfast could be improved. That's my only "problem" with this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by belboy15 A very BIG caution!
Unfortunately I had my laptop bag stolen from the hotel during my stay. Which as you can imagine is a huge inconvenience as all my company and personal effects were stolen, including passport, sensitive data, documents, laptop, hard drives, car & house keys, satellite navigation and more. Security at the hotel is non existent and very poor. The CCTV is basic and doesnt cover important areas. The general staff at the hotel were good yet the way in which my theft was handled was not very sympathetic. I also learnt that this is NOT the first time this has happened at the hotel yet nothing has been done to mitigate security risks. Gangs clearly operate in the area and see this as a soft target as they can simply walk into the hotel unchallenged. Very dissapointed and disheartened as an IHG Club member.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ent25 Hopeless without a car
Although the hotel is only 900m from a metro station, don't use this hotel unless you have a car. The hotel is very difficult to find on foot as there are insufficient directions and the map on the website wasn't detailed enough. There is only a broken piece of pavement outside the hotel and if you try to walk to the metro by the quickest route you have to walk along the hard shoulder of a dual carriageway. There is another route where only 20 yards are across a broken piece of pavement, with the remainder having pavements, but it is through an industrial area and takes longer.
Getting into central Madrid takes an hour including the walk to the metro and the metro itself.
Hotel itself was basic and our room had a carpet that looked dirty with a fraying rip in it.
Hotel is probably fine if you are on a business trip with a car, but not suitable for a leisure trip using public transport.
