      Enjoy the Relaxing Lifestyle

      Madrid eats slowly! A dinner could easily take up to 3 hours. Waiters never pressure you to leave, and the entire city has a very relaxed pace which is perfect if you are on holiday and want to leave behind the hectic stress of your regular routine.

      Rooms are Small

      Most hotel accommodations feature small rooms, because the emphasis is on getting outside; not staying indoors.
