    Location 8.11 /10

    The hotel enjoys a prime location, since it stands in a street that runs perpendicular to the lively and emblematic Gran Vía avenue. This 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. The Petit Palace San Bernardo stands in a street that is similarly lined with numerous shops and stores. Among the other tourist attractions within walking distance, there is the Puerta del Sol and the Royal Palace. 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). Sol Metro station, where you can catch a suburban train, is five minutes away and Barajas airport, is approximately 11 mi from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The hotel has some 57 rooms in total, among which 12 are family rooms, 4 are superior rooms and the rest are standard rooms. Regardless of the room's category, you'll find a computer with free Internet access, a flat-screen TV, a desk, a mini-bar (with alcoholic beverages), a safe which you can use for no extra charge, a magazine rack, a hydromassage shower, wall-to-wall carpeting, a hair-dryer, hospitality products, etc. The style, both 'avant-garde and functional, makes for a highly comfortable stay. The family rooms stand out from the other categories for their superior size and the fact that they are provided with bunk-beds. The superior rooms are even equipped with an exercise bike. It should also be mentioned that two rooms are adapted to accommodate for guests with reduced mobility. The rooms look out onto San Bernardo street or an interior courtyard (40% of them), where you can admire the hanging gardens of the hotel next door (Mercure Madrid Santo Domingo). You should also know that the hospitality products provided are regularly re-stocked and that a bathrobe is available. The four ground-floor rooms open onto a little terrace, furnished with a table and two chairs. On the sixth floor, the mansard rooms are slightly larger, which is why they come within the superior category.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel opened in 2006 and occupies a building full of charm that used to be an apartment block. Of the original architecture, only the façade, the structure and the grandiose stairways that lead up to the rooms remain. You can of course take a lift to get up to the guest rooms of the Petit Palace San Bernardo. On the ground-floor, the hall is home to both the breakfast room and a small relaxation area with two sofas. You'll immediately notice that there are newspapers available and the lighting is great here, thanks to large bay windows that look out onto the street. The walls are decorated with discrete plant motifs in black and white tones, making for an 'avant-garde' yet welcoming setting.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's restaurant serves breakfast as a buffet from 7:30am to 10:30am every morning. This includes a wide selection of offerings that include fruit juice, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread and pastries.

    To know

    The hotel belongs to Basque hotel chain High Tech, which owns 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 San Bernardo provides several services for no extra charge. These include a bike rental service available from 9:00am to 9:00pm, free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building, newspapers and several 'Tourist brochures' provided for guests beside the reception desk. Furthermore, there are two computers with a free Internet connection available on the ground floor. The Petit Palace San Bernardo welcomes arriving guests into the entrance hall with free coffee, fruit juice and water, which actually permanently available here. Although the hotel doesn't have a car park, it does have an arrangement with the neighbouring car park (on Ópera), which means you can enjoy a 15% 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. Finally, pets, such as cats and dogs, are allowed and even treated to a courtesy basket and bowl of water.
