    Location 9.1 /10

    On Calle Arenal, between the Puerta del Sol and Opera, in the heart of Madrid. The Plaza Mayor is very close by. The closest underground stations are Sol or Opera. Madrid Barajas airport is 8 mi away, and 25 minutes should be allowed for transfers.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The rooms of the Petit Palace Arenal are modern and stylish, but remain functional. They are fitted with parquet flooring, and the subdued grey shades of the wallpaper are punctuated by black and white photos. They have an electronic safe, free to use with a credit card and big enough for you to stash your laptop. A big rectangular mirror hangs above the bed. There is also a telephone, free wi-fi, individual air conditioning, a flat-screen satellite television with 25 channels, a mini-bar and a desk. The rooms have a balcony, half of which overlook Calle Arenal, the other half overlooking the quieter inner courtyard.
    The bathroom is just as stylish as the bedroom. There is no bath but the shower is truly amazing! It is big and functional, with hydro massage jets and an easily adjustable temperature. There is also a toilet, a professional hair-dryer and hospitality products.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The 5-storey Petit Palace Arenal is a member of the Madrid "High Tech Hoteles" group and was opened in 2004 with 64 rooms in a handsome, historic 19th Century building with a beautiful pastel red and white façade. The lounge of the lobby is welcoming and friendly, stylishly fitted with a big plasma screen, two computers with free internet access, and a self-service area where guests can help themselves to drinking water, coffee, tea or even fruit juice. Inside, you will marvel at the original wooden staircase, as well as the odd original red brick or exposed wooden beams in the walls.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Breakfast is the only meal on offer, served from 7.30 am to 10.30 am (and up to 11.00 am at the weekend), but the food is excellent. It is taken in the superb, original setting of an ancient vaulted cellar with red brick walls, split into three rooms and equipped with a big plasma screen and a computer with free internet connection. Breakfast consists of fresh fruit juice, home-made pastries, seasonal fruits, cereals, the cooked classics (bacon, omelette, sausages), cheese, and ham; in short, the buffet is varied and delicious. If it is not included in the price of the room, it will cost £10.50.

    To know

    If a bath is a must when you go on holiday, you will be disappointed here, as the bathrooms only have showers, but their hydromassage jets will make you want to stay under them for hours on end. There are 2 computers with free Internet access in the business centre, and a third computer is available in the superb vaulted breakfast room.

    Accommodation advice

    Thirteen family rooms measuring 30m² are available for families, with a king size bed for parents and a bunk bed for children. These 2 beds can be folded up against the wall to make more space. The 8 superior rooms (High Tech) enjoy a better view and are equipped with a computer with a free Internet connection, as well as an exercise bike. They are also provided with bathrobes and slippers, as well as a steam shower for you to enjoy a hammam experience. Fifteen of the rooms look away from the street and are quieter.

      This charming three-star hotel is close to the Calle Preciados, one of the busiest shopping streets in Madrid and even in Spain, as well as some of the city's major attractions, including the Puerta del Sol and the Gran Vía.

The guest rooms are all more or less identical, with the exception of a few that also come with their own terrace.
