    The locality/ near to shops, metro and restaurants. A good central location for all galleries.

    We found the staff quite disinterested in us. We were not asked when booking out if we had enjoyed our stay and it all seemed too much trouble to even smile. The security personnel also were disinterested . The doorman never acknowledged our presence when arriving or leaving.

  • Older travelers

    Nothing special. The night vigile ( a lady) was very helpful when she noticed my nose was leaking blood.

    1 / the pleasant part of the dining room (with windows onto the street) reserved for a seminar, so that the remaining part was blind and bleak 2/ buffet Emperador booked at additional 5 €uros. We skipped it just on the principle we did not like the scheme, although the buffet looked attractive.

    Excellent location. Santo Domingo metro station outside the front door of the hotel.

    Room was very small and outdated. The floor looked like it had not been vacuumed. Asked for an iron on the second night and was told that there would be a €9 charge. In my opinion this is more like a 3 star hotel rather than a 4 star.

  • Older travelers

    We liked everything. Great location for sightseeing,the staff were lovely and the pool was a great way to end each afternoon.

    The only thing that did annoy me was 5 euro for a little bottle of coke at the pool

  • Group of friends

    The only thing I liked was the swimming pool and the terrace on the roof floor, but it is always packed, so you can't use it when itis nice outside.

    I did not like lots of things in this hotel. I regret that I wasted my money staying at this hotel. For my next trip I will surely find another place with better service for the same money. Lets start with the reception: very strange bunch of old grumpy men. Breakfast room ambiance is very poor although waiters were fine. Gym and swimming pool are open only between certain hours, so if you want to do your exercise at 7am, it is not possible as the gym/swimming pool open after 9 or 10am. Another important issue - security. First night, the cleaning personal used by mini bar. I did not feel safe, and aklways had to think to "hide" my personal items of value, because I was not sure if they start with the mini bar they could well take my camera, or my laptop, etc. I did not see any action from the reception after my complaint. I was worried until the end that they would charge me for the mini bar... I don't think it was right to make me feel that way during my vacations!!!! The carpet must not have been vacuumed for days, as I had very bad allergic reaction.. I was fine outside my room. When you lay down your head on the pillow you will hear the subway train that passes just under the building.. Just look for another place for the same money. You'll find much better

    I most certainly liked the location, on the Gran Via, a few minutes from the very central Callao metro station and a walk from the buzzy Chueca district. And The facilities were superb, with a very decent sun lounge on the roof, equipped with a large pool. It cannot be underestimated how hot it is in Madrid in summer, and how pleasant it is to be able to dip in the pool. Pool is open until 7pm most days, and seem to feature longer opening hours on Thursdays, when it stays open until 10pm with a bar. The hotel also seemed to advertise a gym, which unfortunately I did not get to check out. The rooms are large - by central Madrid standards and nicely fitted.

    I am not the biggest fan of the dark mahogany furniture, which strides with the extra hot weather. I suppose that the hotel exudes old-school glamour. It is an old 4-star hotel, after all. If you, like me, like more modern fittings, there are probably better places in Madrid to turn to. But nonetheless, the hotel was very pleasantly appointed and with plenty of extra facilities to make up for the old (but perfectly kept) decor.

    The Emperador is an excellent hotel. It has great facilities and a particularly good roof top pool, lounge and bar area which is a great asset in the centre of the city. I highly recommend this hotel.

  • Group of friends

    Super friendly and helpful staff. Excellent with the rooftop garden with a decent size swimming pool - great for kids during siesta.... Location could hardly be better! Would deifinitely consider to come back to this hotel.

    Breakfast buffet was rather expensive - 20 Euro which was the same price for young children. Ended up having our breakfast in nearby place with a more limited menu. But apart from this - everything was really good!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The roof top pool was the big selling point, so lovely after sight seeing and the views were excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great central location, prices of drinks in the bar very expensive and a negative is that Internet is extremely expensive and slow - try to improve this area please

    Internet access too slow and too expensive for a 4 star hotel, you should make it free. Also breakfast at €22 per person is ridiculous, we all went out for breakfast due to your high prices.

  • Family with children

    We only stayed one night. I was traveling with my college age daughter. When the bellman brought us to the room, he saw that there was a double bed and immediately asked if we preferred 2 beds. He was able to show a room a few doors away with 2 beds. It was slightly smaller, but the 2 beds were much better. As my booking said double or 2 beds, we were prepared to share the double bed. The room was completely quiet, and extremely comfortable with all amenities we needed.

    Would have liked a piano player in the lobby bar. Wifi was expensive.
