The location is excellent. All the main places are within walking distancee.g the Prado and even the Temple of Debod.
We had twin room on top floor with balcony so great view of the city. Hotel was right beside Metro stations but everything was in walking distance. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and Mcdonald's and KFC directly opposite Hotel. Breakfast was good, plenty of choices. Rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. Being on the top floor meant we did not hear traffic outside as Hotel is on the main street.
Bathroom had a bit of sewer smell so had to keep window open. Carpet could do with cleaning or get rid of it all together, don't walk in bare feet on it. Staff not very friendly or helpful but that did'nt bother us. Only 2 lifts and one only holds 3 people and the other 4 people so quiet busy at breakfast time so we walked down the 9 flights of stairs.
we had reserved 2 rooms for 5 people, when we arrived they only had 1 room and they fit us all in there. no extra charge for supplimentary beds.
The location is very convenient for getting to interesting areas of the city.The facilities and service was excellent
No soap or any other bath products were provoded.
Demand clean room if assigned grotty room. Location superb
Single rooms(esp rm215) small n bed bugs beware
Good price for 4 nights and good loction for sight seeing and shopping
It looked less attractive due to exterior renovation but that did not affect our comfort total of 7 spaces in 2 lifts is too few when there are 8 floors and stairs are less accessable. Rooms are quite dark - extra lighting would be an advantage
Spacious nice room, marble bathroom! and nice view. Staff was never disturbing with anything, only helpful.
Wi-Fi was not properly working with my netbook, although better with ipad.
It was very conveniently located for spending a night after a Trapsatur vacation.
Having to climb down stairs to get to the reception area and likewise having to climb up stairs to get to the street.
Location and rooms
No Reception at the entrance,had to carry luggages myself downstairs .Nobody to help to bring them downstairs.I was supposed to stay 5 days but changed because of poor service and no lift to reception.
Just location, its located in the center of Madrid. Best Street ever.. Grand Via. Its very close to Calao metro station. Really Location is best.
Worst service ever. I was asking all during my vacation about internet, they have problem or they told me that they will repair in 5 minute. But no one cares. I was asking and asking bit they did not care. Our room was N 701, near the lift. I think internet was in the center of rooms not is last. Windows.. OMG unlivable... They wear repairing outside of hotels and workers wear walking in the from of window. Breakfast! Thats more funny! People were standing in front of people to wait their places. There was not free places. its really bed filling when u are eating and others are looking. No team, No management. No one is responsible for service. I ask million times about internet, but they even dont care. If it could me possible I would Ask for full refund As they are worst.
Great central location, comfortable room and varied breakfast
The location of Hotel Rex is excellent, the hotel rooms are nicely furnished and spacious
Guests are allowed smoking in their rooms, this is a draw back since the room was smelling stale smoke, it is suggested to ban smoke completely from the hotel
They gave me a room without a window. although I made my reservation about 4 weeks in advance.....(no other rooms left, as they said when I arrived). Unacceptable! Heavy machines were humming all day....because of renovation of the facade. Hotel is old. Not to be recommended to people which are allergic to mites. I left after one night. I will not return to hotel Rex.
Hotel is very old,very uncomfortabel.
