Hotel Francisco I, Madrid
Very Good8.0
Hotel was in a great location. Only problem was it is on a very busy noisy street. The air conditioning was turned off for the season and couldn't open the windows because of the noise. Very hard to sleep when the room is hot and stuffy.

Renovations undergo. Can be quite noisy during the day on some rooms. Not good for napping.

Hotel Francisco I, Madrid
Almost perfect
Everything about this hotel is perfect. I would insist on the fact that is is EXTREMELY central, being close to Puerta del Sol, Mercado San Miguel, two subway stops, etc. The only issue we had was with Wifi, which didn't work at all on our last day. When I enquired about it, I was told "it worked perfectly well for everyone else".... Regardless, I would absolutely stay there again. And most likely will!

Madrid Hotel
Really nice hotel in great location. The room was spacious and well furnished with views over the surrounding streets. Odd that the bathroom had only a wall separating it from sleeping area, doors would have been nice. Other odd things like only two bath towells available in room, although robes were provided. No tissues available in room. Just things you take for normal traveling in the states I guess. But overall staff friendly and helpful.
