    Superb

    We had a triple room, quite large with big beds. the bathroom was quite big, which was a pleasant surprise. the location of the hotel is very good, 50m from Grand Via, close to shps and theaters ans the city tour bus stop. near the hotel there is a restaurant where you cand eat very good food, at more than reasonable prices.

    the selection of food for breakfast is poor. more variety would be welcomed.

    Very good city center location, nicely decorated and reasonably spacious clean rooms

    Breakfast could be a bit better

    Superb

    The location, the excellent Dos Passos bar and accessibility to Malasana and gran via plus metro. Free iPad for 24 hrs really useful.

    Breakfast disappointing. Little fresh fruit, coffee not great and food ran out

    Very good

    Nice location, lots of traffic in the street but very good sound isolation, wonderfull beds

    Breakfast could be better, not a lot of variation but also very poor quality

    Excellent location, reasonably priced, very clean, close to Metro station. What more could you want? ;)

    Very helpful check-in clerk: we arrived very early and, though we could not get into the room, he offered (without prompting) to store our rucksacks in a safe place and pointed out a toilet we could use. For a hotel, a very good buffet breakfast (including tostadas with tomato!). Lovely air conditioning in room and a good bathroom/shower.

    Accumulation of mould(?) on bottom edge of shower screen (otherwise spotlessly clean). The special promotion of a free iPad meant that check-in seemed to take forever - everyone received one, and each had to be set up individually!

    Clean room, excellent location in the center of Madrid, free internet, friendly and helpful staff at reception, good value for money.

    Small room, small bed, unfriendly staff at breakfast.

    Good location value for money. Everything you expect from a 3 star hotel.

    Had a problem with room key but if we stayed more than one night I think they would have given us a different room

    Very good

    Location was excellent. We got a good offer, so I think it was very good value for money. Rooms were decorated in a neutral way and they were clean.

    There wasn't any view from the window, only a wall. That wasn't really a problem, as we didn't come to spend time in the hotel. We travelled with another couple and they were very unhappy about two things: their room smelled strongly cigarettes, and there wasn't possibility to change the room. They also suffered from the noise from the hallway: loud cleaning and other quests were bothering them a lot when they tried to sleep. Our room was obviously located better: we didn't suffer from the noise.

    Hotel staff couldn't speak english and got frustrated and started raising his voice at me when I couldn't understand him

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Excellent location near the shops and numerous restaurants and bars, breakfast (not great but good enough), view from the balcony, clean comfortable room, very good 3-star hotel

    Airconditioning - you couldn't turn it off/on yourself and it was loud and just above the bed, couldn't keep it on at night.

    cleanliness of hotel and central location

    lack of bar, no where except reception to sit generally, somewhere to relax and enjoy a coffee would be nice

    Exceptional

    Sterling is situated right in the centre of Madrid, just off the main street 'Gran Via'. Not knowing much about the city before heading there alone, the staff were fantastic in helping me. I was able to enjoy some fantastic shopping on Gran Via including a visit to El Cortes Ingles. The touristic tour bus stops of Gran Via and tickets can be purchased at the stop. The staff recomended a Flamenco show nearby which was fantastic! I also got to try two restaurants recomended by the staff and both were great! I did not need to take a taxi or use public transport at all during my trip. The hotel was clean and affordable- loved it :)
