            Good central location, very quiet. Nicely decorated room but mattress a bit hard for my liking.

          • Single
            7.0

            The hotel's location is fantastic few meters to Madrid centre.

            My room was very noisy and during the night noisiness started to be unbearable.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Good location.

            Breakfast was't good (except the freshly sqeezed orange juice) and it started at 7.30 am, it is far too late.

          • Couple
            7.4

            The location.

            The only problem is that my room was over air-conditioning system and thus a little noisy.

          • Couple
            8.2

            Excellent location, in the heart of Madrid, gorgeous breakfast, but no airconditioner in the spring.

            No airconditioner in the spring is unacceptable for a 4 star hotel.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            rather quiet inside hotel

            price room was excl breakfast. in weekend noisy outside in the street

            10.0

            that it's half a street from the geographical centre of madrid & within easy walking of most attraction that you would like to visit.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Central location. Modern decor

            Bedroom too small. A comfortable chair would have been welcome. No tea/coffee making facility which you would expect in a 4 star hotel

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Splendid location, just in the centre of the old town.Very good breakfast with nice wine!!!! Very helpfull reception staff.

            Noisy Friday& Saturday nights. Windowns are not enough soundproof.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The hotel is in the centre of Madrid (Puerta del Sol), the room was clear, modern, and comfortable. The staff was very helpfully, the buffet breakfast was delicious. Very recommended.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The foyer bar and restaurant areas were both comfortable and welcoming

            The beds were extremely hard and unforgiving

          • Couple
            8.8

            The staff were excellent. Very helpful.

            On our first night there was a lot of noise from the street. The hotel were, however, happy to move us to a quieter room thereafter without any fuss.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            We loved the fact that the Maria Helena Palace is so central. A short walk got us to the bus stop, the Metro, the Plaza de Sol and the Placa de Mayor. The Hotel is friendly and helpful at the reception, the breakfast is great.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Breakfast was great, huge room, location was fantastic - a very short walk to Puerta del Sol, the centre of Madrid.

            Overall everything was good, just a couple of comments: 2 very small double beds instead of one normal-sized double - make sure you request one large double bed at booking if that is what you want. Also, when we wanted to have a drink from the mini-bar, all the bottle tops required a bottle opener but there wasn't one in the room - on calling reception, we were told we had to take the bottles to the bar to have them opened and no-one would bring us a bottle opener. Suggest they change their fridge stock to screw-top lids or provide bottle openers.
