    I liked the location and the fact that although it was noisey everywhere the staff tried to put us in the quietest room on the 4th floor.

    Very dark with insufficient lighting, decor doesn't help, looks very different on web; insufficient storage space - very few hangers; toilette roll was broke; security box was broke, I lost some euros and they never came back to fix it; went flying down a set of stairway nearly breaking my back - was left with minor swelling and bruising (after which I only used the lift); breakfast wasn't good but I heard that Spain doesn't really do breakfast. Overall thought it was too expensive for what you got, would have happily stayed in a 3 star hotel 5 minutes away from sol for a lot less money and better amenities.

    This place really is in an excellent location, a prime spot for taking in Madrid. The breakfast downstairs was superb - the best I've had in a long time.

    Along with the location came the normal weekend noise throughout the night. But that wasn't much of a bother, honestly.

    The loud music in the corridors, the poor soundproofing, and the very limited cable tv channels

    Hotel was ideally located close to Sol with the Metro nearby.A good base for a Madrid holiday.Breakfasts were good and rooms well maintained.

    Bed was a little too hard

    Superb

    If you want a truly Spanish style experience, I'd definately recommend staying at this accomodation. If you are looking for luxury, forget it! You will find that in five star hotels at rip-off prices! The room I stayed in was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were polite and very helpful. I stayed with a group of middle-aged friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our long- weekend stay here. The Apartments are in an excellent location, with the Metro only five minutes walk away. You are right in the centre of Madrid and there is a wonderful buzz all around the area with people enjoying themselves sitting outside the numerous cafes and restaurants. It is easy to walk to the Royal Palace, Cathedral and other sites from here which is a bonus!

    The location was good and the included breakfast was convenient

    The room as a triple was small. Our room overllooked the street and was extremely noisy

    This hotel is simply amazing!!!!!. It's a gorgeous historical building (no "hotel" sign outside though..which makes it even more charming but just a little more challenging to find!), located at this cute little street steps away from Plaza del Sol...and has a balcony!!! Free internet and breakfast (be careful, the breakfast is a feast!!! :) I loved every second of it..love it, love it, love it!!!

    Absolutely nothing to complain, can't wait to go back!!!

    Very good

    The location is great for discovering the city by foot - all the main city features are at max. 20 min. by foot. You'd barely need to use any city transport whatsoever.

    It is extremely noisy due to the bars open whole night in all surrounding streets, even through the closed window. The noise doesn't stop even when the bars are finally closed around 5 AM, because that's when the bar staff removes the tables and the chairs over cobble-stone street without much consideration. It continues stright away with delivery vehicles... so get prepared not to sleep much if you are noise-sensitive. Note: the noisy nights are all 7 week nights, not only Friday and Saturday.

    This hotel was excellently placed for all Madrid had to offer, right in heart of Sol with its many tapas bars and busy nightlife. The room itself was exactly what we wanted - rustic, with Spanish character oozing out the wooden beams and plastered walls. There was surprisingly little noise in our room (though we were at the back of the hotel) and the breakfasts were again authentic and tasty - spanish omelete and hams/cheeses etc. We would stay there again, without question. A totally amazing city break, would thoroughly recommend both Madrid and the Apartementos En Busca del Tiempo to anyone.

    Superb

    The staff was helpful and polite. Τhey had no problem for keeping our luggage after the check-out until 17.00. The room was clean. The place was very central, though noisy on fridays' and suterdays' nights. However the doors kept the noise out. The breakfast was nice (offered local 'tostadas' also), but it could be better (greater variety).

    Some time on the first day of our stay, the water in bath became cold suddenly. However we asked at the reception, they apologized for the inconvenience and explained that there was a problem that was later fixed.
