    Location 9.3 /10

    The hotel stands in Madrid's symbolic century-old avenue, the Gran Via. Most of the city's cultural offerings; its cinemas, and its theatres, along with a throbbing shopping district crammed with all sorts of boutiques and fashion shops, are to be found in the area. In fact, it has been dubbed the 'Broadway of Madrid' because of its numerous cinemas and theatres. A quick walk will take you from the hotel to the city's main sights of interest: Puerta del Sol, Plaza de España, and the Royal Theatre, to mention but a few. It is also very conveniently located in terms of public transport. There is a bus stop near the entrance where you can catch a bus to almost anywhere in the centre of Madrid and the closest metro stations are a mere 200m away: Plaza de España (lines 3 and 10) and Santo Domingo (line 2). Barajas airport is approximately 10 mi away.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The establishment has 171 guest rooms, most of which are in the standard category, and two suites. All of them offer the same amenities but the size of the room depends on the number of guests: single, double, or double family. If not all then most of them include large adjustable beds (1.8x 2m if it's a double) with warm duvets, a cosy armchair, a kettle (with courtesy tea and coffee), a stereo with a CD player, a free safe and minibar, an iron and an ironing board, a make-up mirror, and a hair-dryer. The bathrooms offer a nice selection of hospitality products that are replenished free of charge. A bathrobe and a pair of slippers are also available for free, upon request. The rooms have air-conditioning but also feature a fan, which is ideal especially when the heat of Madrid gets too much to stand. The large mirror integrated in the headboard is quite the touch and adds to the general feeling of grandeur. The rooms on the 8th floor have a balcony, while those on the 10th include a terrace, with those overlooking the Gran Via being mostly double family rooms and views of the Plaza de Mostenses available from almost all of them in general. If you want a more private view, there are two rooms on each floor that look out onto an interior courtyard. Overall though, you'll appreciate the good soundproofing and the double-glazed windows that protect guests from the noisy neighbourhood surrounding the hotel, and you'll also have the opportunity to select your pillow, upon request.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Occupying a building that was erected in the mid 40s, the hotel stands out for its elegant façade, in particular the bottom part that features a beautifully sculpted entrance door. The building was designed by architect Juan de Pan da Torre and the interior decorating is the work of Antonio Cruz Collado. These two artists are also famous for having created the renowned Ocaso building of Princesa de Madrid Street. Originally, the Senator Gran Via 70 building was home to the 480-seat Pompeya cinema that closed in 1998. The current hotel opened in 2003 and has 11 storeys with the communal areas found on the bottom floor and top floors. This layout makes it easy for guests to find their way around. On the first floor, you'll find the hotel's administrative offices, whereas the guest rooms are found on the other floors. Thanks to the hotel's exterior appearance and glass revolving doors leading into the lobby, its entrance is truly splendid. The lobby features a functional and classically decorated reception area with a table on which you will find some courtesy drinks and two computers for your use, as well as a mezzanine sitting room where you can enjoy your coffee. Two levels underground there is a spa, which is also accessible from the hotel entrance and the existence of which is proudly displayed huge billboards that can be seen from the street. The 'Spa Wellness Acquaplaya' is a centre entirely dedicated to well-being and beauty treatments. Among its facilities are heated swimming pools with water jets, Turkish baths, saunas, a foot bath, a jacuzzi, a relaxation room, etc... You'll have the feeling of being in a spacious and welcoming cave. In addition to the aquatic circuit, the centre also has a few massage and beauty parlours and a hairdresser. As for the restaurant, you will find it at level -1. Also worthy of mention is the small gym with its 5 machines that is free for guests staying at the hotel. The hotel also has a furnished rooftop terrace with two jacuzzis that operate from July to September.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Senator Gran Vía 70 Spa serves a buffet-style breakfast in its La Restinga restaurant, but lunch and dinner are only served if booked in advance. However, bear in mind that the neighbourhood is full of all types of restaurants. A copious affair constituting a good start to the day, breakfast includes: fruit juices, fruit, pastries, warm dishes (prepared on the spot), cakes, meat cuts, and all sorts of drinks, served in a spacious and comfortable room that can seat approximately 80 guests. The price is relatively reasonable for a hotel that benefits from such a convenient location: About £10 for adults and £5 for children. The hotel also offers room service provided by Telepizza, an exterior caterer, the menu for which you will find directly in your room. Finally, the Pompeya coffee shop should also be mentioned. It was named after the former cinema and serves drinks and snacks.

    To know

    This is one of the very rare hotels in the centre of Madrid, and of the Gran Via in particular, to include a spa. In addition to guests staying at the hotel, it is open to the general public and the rates depend on the treatments you choose. You can follow a full aquatic circuit, complete with a cup of coffee, for approximately £18. The terrace includes two jacuzzis and affords a marvellous view of the famous street the hotel is located in. Every day, a glass of cava and water are provided at the reception desk, courtesy of the establishment! The building also houses the 'La chocita del loro Senator' theatre, where stand-up comedians perform every day. All of the guest rooms offer the same amenities, which include a free minibar (two bottles of water, two soft drinks, an alcohol-free beer, and two fruit juices) that is stocked daily. The clientele changes depending on the day of the week: either guests visiting on business or holidaymakers. Approximately two thirds of the rooms are non-smoking. Wi-Fi access is free throughout the hotel. You may also be interested to know that the hotel has three rooms specially adapted for guests with reduced mobility on the first floor. There is no car park but the hotel has arranged for a 20% discount for guests who wish to park their car at the Mostense public lot.
