    Location 9.7 /10

    Located on Plaza del Carmen, in the city centre, the Petit Palace Plaza del Carmen hotel is half-way between Gran Vía and the Puerta del Sol. You may also be interested to know that there is a cinema just next door. The basement of the hotel is home to an Italian restaurant. The location of the hotel will enable you to (effortlessly) walk to some of the main tourist attractions in Madrid, including Puerta del Sol, the Royal Palace and the Gran Vía. The latter is a century-old and typical avenue of Madrid that provides varied offerings in terms of cuisine, shopping and entertainment. It is also home to a large number of cinemas and theatres, which is why it is known as Madrid's answer to Broadway. When it comes to transport, everything is within easy reach, including taxi ranks and bus stops just a few metres away, and the metro stations of Callao (lines 3 and 5) and Gran Via (lines 1 and 5). A 5-minute walk will take you to Sol metro station, where you can take the metro or a suburban train. Barajas airport, meanwhile, is approximately 11 mi from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The Petit Palace Plaza del Carmen hotel has a total of 42 luxury guest rooms, distributed as follows: twelve 'High Tech' rooms, 14 family rooms and the rest are standard rooms. They all share the same size, the same avant-garde interior and the same varied amenities, such as the laptop, a secrétaire desk, a luggage rack, a magazine rack, a safe which you can use for free, a mini-bar, and a flat-screen TV. The large bathroom includes a hydromassage shower, a hair-dryer (state-of-the-art) and a make-up mirror. Furthermore, in each room, in addition to the Wi-Fi, there is cable Internet connection which guests can use for no extra charge. You can enjoy views of Plaza del Carmen, with its lively atmosphere, Tres Cruces street, or of the interior courtyard, which is the case for about half of the rooms. The street-facing rooms have a pleasant, albeit small, balcony. The rooms in the High Tech category are also equipped with an exercise bike, and families will be pleased to know that the family rooms are fitted with a bunk-bed. Communicating rooms are also available, and you can ask for a cot, for no extra charge.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel's facilities are limited, as other than the guest rooms, the hotel is home to just a reception area, a lounge, a cafeteria and an Internet space. However, the small size of the hotel does add some warmth to the establishment. All around the hotel and in particular in the entrance hall, you'll be struck by the harmony of the place, which mixes elements that date from the original construction with Ibarrola's clever interior decorating. Original details such as the granite floor and the wooden beams serve as a background to modern lighting fixtures and armchairs. The building used to be an apartment block before being renovated in 2005 and becoming a hotel.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel has one restaurant that serves only a buffet breakfast. Among other things, this is composed of sliced fruit, fruit juices, cereal, bread, pastries, and hot dishes (bacon, scrambled eggs, sausages). The hotel often offers promotions, like breakfast for two for around £12.50, for example. The breakfast room occupies a basement room where most of the original architectural qualities of the building have been preserved, including in particular the domes and their visible brickwork which used to host a wine cellar. Although it has no windows, this large room is welcoming and cool. The hotel doesn't provide room service, but breakfast can be brought up to your room during the restaurant's opening hours. You can also have meals delivered to your room provided by an exterior company.

    To know

    The hotel belongs to the Basque hotel chain High Tech. This chain owns other several other establishments in the city centre, all generally including more than 100 rooms and featuring amenities such as a computer in the rooms, and hydromassage showers. High Tech's logo was created by Basque painter and sculptor Agustín Ibarrola, who also took the photos on display inside the guest rooms of the hotels owned by the group. The common trait shared by Petit Palace hotels is that they occupy charming buildings that have mainly been kept in their original state and combined with an 'avant-gardiste' interior. The Petit Palace del Carmen provides various services for no extra charge. These include the coffee service from noon to 10:00pm, from the coffee machine in the entrance hall, the bicycle loan service from 9:00am to 9:00pm, free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building, and newspapers available for guests beside the reception desk. Although the hotel doesn't have a car park, it does have an arrangement with the neighbouring car park on Plaza del Carmen, which means you can enjoy a 20 % discount if you park your car there. There is a shuttle service that will take you to the airport upon request, but you have to pay extra for this. One room has been adapted for guests with reduced mobility.
