the design of the hotel
Hotel is located 2mins from Madrid metro, as well as supermarkets and authentic local tapas bars and restaurants. Attraction of staying here, eventhough your a short complimentary hotel bus ride from the touristy centre, is the hotel's interior which has been designed by a number of world famous architects and designers - Foster, Hadid, amongst others. This is matched by the 5-star service of the hotel.
Thi is one of the best hotel in Madrid, one of the best in the world. I'm travelling alot, but this is the best hotel i've staied in. The desing is different in each room, in the room u have a real king size bad. The service is perfect. Donstairs there is a restaurant, i would recomment to visit it. I'll come back again.)
design excelent, breakfast also! swimming and SPA closed, diffucult to adjust temp in room
Rooms were modern, hallways narrow and dark. Only 2 English speaking television stations (CNN, BBC News). Internet access was simple and reasonable. Staff were very efficient and polite. Breakfast was very expensive (25 Euros) for a buffet. This is more than double what the price should have been. No desk the room, so had to use a small coffee table for business and computer requirements.
The Silken Puerta America is a very well designed hotel. It is completely different to any other hotel I have experienced before. The location was poor, being 5kms from Sol / Plaza Major, which is a little too far to walk. Perhaps if they offered a shuttle service to drop guests into town.
Staff were very professional and discreet. Room was funky and I loved the circular bed and huge tv screen. 1 minute from metro which is clean, cheap, cool and frequent. Nicely finished, Great towels, robes and bedlinen as well as plentiful toiletries. Make sure you overlook the road and are not overlooked by the blocks of flats on the other side.... Only 2 floors are no smoking, limiting choice of room styles. Spa is not a spa - just a small pool with a room off it for beauty treatments or else a massage in a room on 4th floor (but then I got to see another room style!).
Design of the room and bars. SPA is very small and poor.
design. nothing at all.
The concierge, Jose Maria is amazing. Great place.
Special design elevator malfunction and not capable for so many people. I have to wait 10 minutes or even longer for it. Emergency exit were locked and only opened in the basement
The location and my room was cozy for a single occupant no cork screw in room -- minor
My boyfriend and I stayed here with extended family for a week. Great location, everyone that worked there was really nice/helpful and the rooms were great. So happy to have stayed here during our European adventure! Breakfast/buffet was not included in our stay but there are great little breakfast spots for a cheaper price right down the road from the hotel. workout facilities were a little older
The location was good. The staff was not helpful at all. There was a long queue at both check in and check out. Upon check in we were not given any instructions about the breakfast that was included in our rate and consequently we needless paid twice for our meal. Since we had booked online, the hotel was "unable" to make restitution. I would never stay at this hotel again or recommend it. There are too many other wonderful options available in Madrid. establishment.
Discovered bedbugs before going to sleep. Had to pack up my belongings in the middle of the night and move hotels. Staff had said they were going to pass along my contact information to the manager. Days later and I've heard from nobody.
modern, centrally located. Able to get quiet ground floor room (no need to use elevator) location is in the Red Light District--many "characters" loitering about
Great room, nice size, clean bigger bathroom than expected. Terrific restaurant with delicious coffee and pastries. We arrived well ahead of check-in and were graciously given our 2 rooms hours early with a smile. The street noise could be heard in room, somewhat.
Staff courtesy ,amiability .Clean enviroment
Great location, double glazed for noise outside, which is abundant as it's right in the city center. Air conditioner, Tv monitor which is also a computer screeen. I didn't expect carpets on floors and some surfaces in a 4 star hotel and in a hot country like Spain. It makes the rooms very stuffy. Also the bath quite claustrophobic, narrow, left very little room for movement in what it looked like more like a niche in a cemetery.
Location & comfort of the rooms. Concierges were very helpful General off hand manner of all waiters and bar staff.
Room was comfortable and great location Internet connection in the business centre was too slow!
The location was GREAT!!!!! One block away from main street, so quiet in the evening, and perfect during the day. I would definitely stay here again!!!
Pretty average hotel My room was not ready upon arrival and had to wait whilst it was cleaned, staff generally not too friendly, the 'gym' facilities are a joke - the singular machine was broken, the restaurtant is expensive ... i could go on - my advice is dont stay at this hotel - very poor
Restaurant menu was a bit poor.
Clean room, good location and quiet. Good value.
Hotel is well situated for shopping and the Retiro, very easy to get to by car, but see comments below. Despite assurances by phone that parking would be no problem, no space was available. A hotel of this size should have spaces, or at least access to public parking. Reception and lifts are overwhelmed at peak hours. I have stayed here often, but it's showing signs of a lack of care. Good hotel if the price is right.
The staff was friendly, helpful and most spoke at least some English. Very helpful in a foreign city. The hotel was just 2 blocks from the Metro. It was very modern and clean. Most signs, menus and notices were in both English and Spanish. The beds were more firm than I was used to and the pushed-together twin beds would separate creating a crack in the middle making it difficult to sleep close to my wife.
Very pleaseant staff, very well equipped hotel, one of best I have had the pleasure to stay in for some time. Certainly to be reccomended nothing
The staff, comfort and location were very good The poached eggs for breakfast were very poor. They were cooked,tasted of and presented in vinegar which soaked into the toast. My wife had to leave her full cooked breakfast as a result of this.
What I liked the most is how accessible to the metro it was. It was easy to get around Madrid and offered a quiet atmosphere which I very much appreciated. The staff was very friendly.
Location, size of room The sauna was not working and the staff was not very apologetic about that. Our room was also not ready on time.
This hotel was great value.Staff were very helpful on places to eat and things to do.Its is 2mins from a metro station which you can get straight from the airport.
Hotel was very reasonably priced, convenient to two metro lines, room was confortable, staff were friendly Room was just a little too warm, however, I was able to open the window.
service room standard not so good
good location. good hotel
Location View from the window on a interior court
Great location: shops, restaurants, bars and an underground station just around the corner. The room was quite spacious and had a small balcony. The staff was really friendly. The room was very noisy. To some point I do understand that because Gran Via is just under the window but then again the insulation of balcony doors could have been more proper and the windows thicker. And frankly, the room (inlcuding the bathroom) needs a serious updating. And there was no safety deposit box. Or there actually was one but it had no lock on it.
the ground of the bathroom was dirty around the WC. The frame of the door of the bathroom is broken.
the view from the balcony was superb. the room was large. no emphasis on free sauna etc
Nice service from the staff N/A
spacious rooms the variety of breakfast
The hotel is situated in central Madrid on a surprisingly quiet street corner. Both the room and its bathroom were spacious, spotlessly clean, well furnished and equipped. Staff was polite and helpful, their english skills varied. We asked for a street side room for light on an upper floor for quiet and we got one but we had to take two lifts and walk a long lonely corridor between them. A bit creepy late at night!
The atmosphere is wonderful. The rooms are very nice and the employees are very helpful. Really enjoyed staying here.
the staff were very helpful, room was clean
Excellent location, everything worthwhile seeing within walking distance
The closeness to the centre The bar of the hotel was too small and uncomfortable
THe location was great, the room was very comfortable with a large bed. It was noisy becasue it was on the street and the walls are thin. Also think the staff could be knowledgeable about the area, especially place to eat.
the decoration and attention to detail amazed us, stunning!!. beautiful hotel. staff very friendly and efficient. location superb, literally round the corner from neptune fountain, prado museum and thyssen museum. cocktail bar sooooo cool. restaurant mediteranean asian fusion not too expensive. and you might catch a glimpse of tom cruise as the church of scientology is across the road.
very good location but the rooms are too small.The breakfast was excellent.
very comfortabe, interior design was great..
the friendly doormen It was great!
Location is great, right in the middle of town, restraunts, bars tapas and shopping.my room was big although I took a superior room. There are no views from any room windows. I took the advice of other reviews and asked for a room away from corridor to be quiet Bad inroom breakfast. Also the morning buffet breakfast is not very exciting and too expensive
Excellent staff, super clean room, amazing shower, I was completely satisfied. Didn't stay long enough to try the restaurant but it looked good ;)
Perfect coffe in the bar, good staff, quite modern, good location and amaizing terrace Quite small and poor room
The hotel is centrally located and very clean
Superb rooms, and perfect location! I found some of the staff members at the reception desk a bit intimidating.
Room size, good A/C, and location The shower doesn't have lights, very slippy, and water gets out of the tub when showering.
breackfast 19 euros very expensive bar excellent
Good location. Comfortable, ckean room. Good size
Service, location and view were great. Rooms clean and comfortable and within easy walking distance to metro. Rates were very good as well.
Hotel was very nice, modern and rooms spacious and stylish The staff are abismal. Receptionists act as if you are annoying them, restaurant staff are rude and do not ever smile, the only nice ones are the cleaning ladies. This doesnt normally bother me so much but they were just so depressingly unpleasant it did affect my stay without a doubt. They should sack the lot of them and start again with the amount of people who need a job in Spain at the moment!
Pleasant and friendly staff
Nice room isolation
New and clean.
Friendliness of staff. Good variety of breakfast available. Professional look throughout the hotel, all aspects. The location is amazing, so close to so many bars and restaurants. Bus stop just around the corner, which you can take straight to the football stadium.
Nice place to stay as was within walking distance of all city ammenities but not in the center well its a 4* but would say its a border line 3* - 4*
We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was very good. Staff most helpful. Very happy with location We had no complaint about Gran Versalles
The hotel is quiet, clean and the staff are attentive. the staff also spoke english which was a great help. I stayed at the hotel at the start and end of my visit to Spain and the staff were professional and helpful on both occasions. I liked the Hotel location as it was a nice area of Madrid and easy to get to the Metro station which was just round the corner. both the rooms I stayed in were air conditioned. The room I had at the end of my trip however did not have a control switch for the air conditioning and I found it a bit noisy.
The staff was nice and helpful although sometime English was a little limited. Right next to a subway station and although we had a street-side room it was quiet at night. breakfast is really over priced, just go to a cafe nearby.
location (easy walk to the museums or to sol and grand via), staff, can easily book excursions from the hotel. air conditioning is very low, but open the window and the room cools down. air conditioning is too weak to cool the room on its own.
it had good value for the money paid, and the staff was very helpful.
Recommended. We parked a car there; the garage is a tight fit. Everything else about or room and the assistance we received was simply excellent. We did not dine at the hotel, but only because we had other commitments.
Very well connected to centre and various points of interest. It was cold during the night and even with 2 blankets we could not warm up. Bed was hard and not recommended to people with back problems. Several times at night and very early mornings we heard loud , extended noise, as if someone would move the furniture. It is still a mistery where this noise came from, very unlikely that the hotel guests made it. I would be curious to find out.
The facilities at Gran Versalles was filled with comfort. The shower facility is different from the rest with separate shower head with clean towels and separated sink for each person. Thank you!
The stuff is really nice. The breakfast was rather rich. Just small things - no remote control for TV, and for me the room was a bit too warm. Otherwise it is good place to stay.
We arrived at around 11:00 in the morning and they were kind enough to give us an "early check-in". Room was really clean and there was a very nice toiletry kit on the bathroom. Nice little restaurants around the area. Although not at city "centre", it was really easy to get around, especially on the red bus. Would recommend Gran Versalles to everyone!
Clean and comfortable hotel, bathrooms have some unique designs which make your stay that bit more interesting. Good loaction for staying in the city.
delightful art, furnishings and decoration; storage of luggage on final afternoon; jacussi advertised but not yet available; small room
Location was excellent The breakfst was quite expensive for what was offered
The staff could not have been more helpful. One of my credit cards was stolen and they really did everything they could to assist. The room was small, even for central Madrid. The cost of the room was high for its size, but it would be unfair to single this hotel out. Comparable hotels at this location are all the same.
Great Location! Second time in this hotel and I wouldn't try staying anywhere else.
I am satisfied with the Hotel. The location is in the centre, free Wi-Fi (I even have it in my room as well not only in public places), friendly staff, good breakfast.
the excellent location of the hotel in center of city! good breakfast until 11 a.m. unfortunately we didn't sleep 2 nights, very noisy outside until 6 a.m. on thursday! poor isolation of windows and walls, so we could hear when neighbours used toilet and spoke. quite little room for 2 persons and room doesn't correspond with those pictures, that are shown in internet!!! very old-fashioned and has specific smell.
Comfort, central position, friendly staff Extremely noisy, especially at night. Very poor sound proofing - we could hear the man next door snoring!
The Restaurant The Mini Bar to be replenished every day
Cleanliness of the room and bathroom, and quality of the rich breakfast Tiny dimensions of the room with double bed not exceeding 1.3 m in width
I like its location ,near to metro stations (Callao and Sol) and well deserved . Also, breakfast buffet tasteful and good service . The room was confortable and space of its bathroom nicely shaped . This hotel is quite silence . Staff working at the Front Desk (ridiculous space !) lack of professional skills. Indeed , a no smart people . Also, at the first day of my stay (6 nights) , and in spite of my previous on line booking, they gve me a room without windows in the 1st floor .Smaller and noisy which standart can be compared with a one star in Eurpean hotel.
The location was perfect, the Jr. Suite offered plenty of room, the balcony was quite nice. The majority of the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean. 1 room the A/C and the hair dryer weren't working properly and that was never resolved. The parking was very expensive. Need to vacuum under the beds.
Location and access to points of interest.
Staff was very helpful (and most spoke english), quick response to requests (towels, room service), very good location near Callao metro stop Bathroom was cramped, you could smell cigarette smoke when running the ac
Well-located hotel. We had a top floor room that had a balcony that overlooke a monestery with its beautiful ancient tile roofs. No place to set up one, much less two, suitcases.
Their elevator is so unique! Very clean, amazing location for the money. Staff was really nice and helpful
The central location of the hotel near Pl.Mayor, Puerta del Sol
The location is superb! In the city centre, next to the shopping streets, the city discos and with a choice of 3 metro stations. Good value for money too! The breakfast room on the 6th floor has one of the best views of the city. Our room saw the inner court since we had to chose between a double bed or a nice view....but that was ok actually, quiet and neat. The one and only elevator is sometimes too slow but the hotel is a restaured old building with a long history. Absolutely worth the experience!
Beautiful hotel, facing nice old square. Check-in took 30 sec. Comfortable and charming: old-fashioned elevator, bell epoque decor... Bathroom big, new and clean. my room on second floor had a vague smoking smell, I had to open a window while out for a dinner
Breakfast too expensive
We stayed at the hotel 4 days and what we liked most was it centric location, within walking distance to everything in old Madrid, and close to bus an metro stops. Plaza San Martin is at the very heart of the city and very close (5 minutes walking) to such city highlights as Plaza mayor, La Opera, Palacio Real, Gran Via, etc. Corte Ingles (the department store) is just around the corner, and also there is parking available (although pricey, $28 euros per 24 hours) just outside the hotel (parking belongs to Corte Ingles). If you have a car, do not park on the city streets as they are "residents only" parking. Breakfast is not included, and if you chose to eat at the hotel, it is pricey. Just walk to any of the coffee shops close to the hotel and have a good continental breakfast at very low price (2-5 euros).
5 minute walk to Puerto Del Sol (Kilometer 0) and Plaza Mayor in Madrid. Many shops and restaurants nearby. Staff very helpful. A little tough to get to if you are driving your own car. As is often the case in Madrid, it is off a side, side, side street so more conducive to walking than driving in an out. Would have preferred a second bed in the room vs. a rollaway for our adult son, although it worked out okay.
Well I like the breakfast buffet that's all. This wrongly starred hotel do not offer airconditioning in their rooms ,do you believe that. If you are asthmatic do not stay here,super dusty rooms, damp bathrooms ,no airconditioning means no air filtration This hotel is 2 not a 4 star hotel , when you see the name you think well Petit is a nice name but when you arrive at the hotel you realize that everything is really petit indeed from the tiny reception ,to the tiny elevators,tiny restaurant, tiny room.
Smart hotel in very good location, good deal if booked in advance
the exceptional good breakfast and nice bathrooms
Great location, great hotel for the price.
Outstanding location. Excellent value. Courteous service. Good laundry. Very good breakfast. Very nice bathroom, excellent shower, but the bathroom was very dark and position of the floor-mounted door stop was a hazard (several painful impacts with toes).
Location to downtown Room layout. Very cramped. Too many ammenities for room size
The location was excellent. Very clea room, bed was very comfortable, bathroom well-equipped and very modern. Front office staff courteous, polite, and helpful. Hallways to room had a strong smell of stale cigarette smoke.
Excellent location, great room, very clean, large, quiet, comfortable bed, clean, excellent breakfast, with the exception of one lady at the front desk the receptionist staff was very friendly.. I found the lady at the front reception very rude the way she talked to you, she talked down to you, very dissappointing.
b&o electronics, comfortable but separate beds, deep carpets, well appointed bathroom even though no tub, facility was very quiet, staff was helpful, friendly and spoke decent English room lighting tried too hard for ambience, resulting in the lack of a good, bright reading lamp
the location was great It has Wi Fi feee just in the lobby, and you need a different code eny time yo connect.
We loved the central location. the staff was helpful and attentive. WE loved the in room shampoo and conditioner. Is it possible to get it in the USA?
Splendid service.Very comfortable rooms. Excellent location. The rooms are too dark. More light would be nice.
Location of this Hotel was great , very close to most of the tourist attractions. Easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Overall the room was very clean, however the bath tub had some stains from the water. So while I would have liked a bath I did not.
My daughter helped me find this hotel at the last minute for a business trip. It is the perfect hotel - I will stay nowhere else in Madrid. Location is perfect - central location just a five minute walk to Puerta del Sol and connections to the metro and suburban rail. The hotel is surrounded by excellent restaurants with a range of prices. Although in the city center, the room was wonderfully quiet. The room I had was moderately large with a modern bathroom and plenty of space to work. While everything was excellent, the highlight was a stunning breakfast included with the room - a choice of fresh fruits, cheeses, sliced cold cuts, fruit juices, and much more. Negatives - what didn't I like? Can't think of anything!
Breakfast excellent Great location
everything worked ok...especially the shower ! Clean generous beds. Pleasant reception staff 4th floor room overlooked the main street below...very noisy. View was ok ( trees) and preferable to the interior facing rooms ( no decent view ) Prefer 7th floor next time. No UK TV stations ( BBC News 24 is NOT a TV station )
Excellent locality, comfortable bed, good food a few niggles,i.e non replacement of milk/coffee etc on night tray, we were a party of 4 couples, all in superior rooms but not all had the same facilities - one had no robes, one had only one bath towel etc.
Convenience for Atocha Station; good selection of international newspapers. Lacks atmosphere; staff not particularly helpful or friendly; no late night food or bar facilities.
Location is great. Very luxurious hotel. Highly recommend.
Front desk helpful, great tourist location shower temperature not steady or safe
Almost everything A bit noisy
Nice rooms. Nothing significant.
good location near train station. very friendly staff
The location for Atocha & the museums & the metro was excellent. Also the buffet breakfast was very good.
Clean and comfortable hotel, placed very close to the main museums and well served by public means.
only location next to del prado museum and park The hotel must be 3 or 4 star and doesnt look like 5 star and it is too expensive.The bathroom was small and terrible and after a shower water pours down,the WIFI too slow and only free for 1 hour.
It was a lovely hotel with a helpful staff. Great location across from the Prado Museum. You can walk to all attractions. The room was a great layout with a sitting area downstairs from the beds. Restaurant/Bar were excellent. Hotel provided a complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival. They have a free computer if you need the internet. They also provide a CD player in the room. Wish I purchased the CD of Spanish music. Would highly recommend this hotel.
DATED, ROOMS ARE LOUD, NO ISALATION CAN HEAR NEIGHBORS ON ALL SIDES AND CLEANING STAFF, THE BED WAS 2 MATTRESS PUT TOGETHER AND VERRY UNCOMFORTABLE, IM 5,10 AND MY FEET HUNG OFF THE END, ONCE INSIDE YOU FEEL LIKE A HOTEL FROM THE 70s THE DECORE IS OLD. THE BREAKFAST WAS AGOOD VALUE. OVERALL WE DID NOT ENJOY OUR STAY. MADE 2 PHONE CALL TO TRY AND GET A REFUND WITH NO SUCCESS, IT WAS SO BAD WE CHECKED OUT 1 DAY EARLY.
The location and friendliness of the staff was excellent.
The location and facilities are excellent. The staff, especially the front desk personnel, were great—very helpful and knowledge. Noise from other rooms and service vendors is a bit distracting in the evening. Breakfast in the restaurant is very nice but formal. it would be nice to also a venue that is simpler and more low key without the white linens
The welcome bottle of wine and flower and the fact that the maid service was efficient. No on site swimming pool.
Room design was exactly I expected from photo. It had sitting area at few steps donw form bedding area, with sofa and coffee table wtih freash rose in the vase, gave more relaxing space after sightseeing in busy town. Hotel gives upscale/rustic/cosy feeling all together. Front desk personnel,porters, and door men were all nice. Location is great for sigtseeing and dining. A bar next to hotel was nice to visit for small drink or tea at late night too. Bathroom was clean but had a strong oddor (smell like sewer). Also, one day we were back to room duing day time to take a break from sighseeing, the noise from outside (from either roof or pipe repaire) was very loud. So we went back out to sightseeing.
The friendly reception and needs all met in a straightforward way. We had a nice quiet room.
friendly staff. When I needed to call an ambulance for my husband who was unwell they were efficient and helpful a bigger restaurant for the evening would have been better.
Great view and beautiful suite on the 5th floor
location and its was realatively clean poor facilities no pool,no proper bar, limited seating in restaurant,staff didnt speak english and were not helpful
the good location I was deeply disappointed by the size of the room, and the fact that it needed a good refurbishment. I felt I paid I very high room cost for something that didn't warrant it. My guide book had said the Villa Real was a deluxe hotel; perhaps I was just given the worst smallest room on the top floor.
Great bed and amazing pillows....very quite despite its central location. Quite expensive breakfast (buffet) for what is offered.
The location was perfect because our goal was to be able to visit the three major art museums within walking distance to our hotel. Parks, restaurants and shopping were also right there. The concierge was excellent in making flamenco arrangements for us. When I called ahead to check our reservation, the clerk answering the phone said that we would need to stay in one queen size bed and that to have twin beds would cost 500 euros per night. When we arrived, the registration clerk upgraded us to two twin beds at no extra cost.
The calm atmosphere and the beautiful interieur. Luxurious but still nice and comfortable. The price of two drinks was about the same as the price of one flight ticket back to Oslo . . . .. .
Location of hotel Comfort of bed was spolt by squeaking everytime you moved in the bed!
Staff was unfriendly
its close proximity to museums and sites. the high cost for internet usage.
Great location. Beautiful old hotel. Concierge excellent. Breakfast very expensive. Staff was not well informed of the hours of restaurant.
Service is excellent all around. The location is central and easy walk to popular plazas, a great park. Breakfast is amazing with self serve champagne!
Have stayed there before and was 'welcomed back'. It is ideally located, overall a very pleasant hotel. Excellent staff.
Close to museums Over priced! Everything is outrageously expensive. Staff is not interested in the guest. No room facilities for heating water for coffee or tea. Not enough towels.
The location of the hotel was perfect and so was the parking service which is so difficult to find in hotels nearby. The room was really good, really confortable and clean. The staff were very helpful. The beds were too small for a hotel like this and I don't understand how possible it is to have staff in the reception who speak english so so bad!!
Location, helpfulness from staff, roof pool, fantastic room - two showers!! and great view also
The hotel's location is a huge asset. It's central location enhances access to the various interests in the city. Room was slightly smaller than expected - but acceptable nontheless.
hotel statt , facilities , cleqnliness of hotel and room , situation of hotel hard of Madrid
-The location was great -Staff was very helpful -The pool and roof deck were amazing -Hotel was very clean -The wifi was slow and it had a two device limit -The room was somewhat small
Location - excellent size room - TV channels poor - I do not watch TV but others may and would find it dissapointing
loction executive lounge marginal, no wine available
location quality dropped a bit compared with my visit 5 year ago
Location is perfect. Wi Fi it far too expensive. View.
Only the pool is the only big pool in Gran via sed the is open till 9 pm when summer time in Madrid is light till 11 pm First when I arrive after long fly from New York the told me the room no ready I bin waiting from 9 am till 2:30 pm service sooo slow line for the front desk is over size waiting and the worst the don't speak English well , when I get the room finely it was look sooo different from the pic and so small that I was can move there I sleep I wake up and I cancel all my rest of the stay in this hotel and I go to other hotel horrible experience never recomed this hotel
swimming pool room walls where damaged: visible has had a water leakage on the roof, poor facilities, small room, not enough water pressure in the shower.
The roof pool and the central location of the hotel
Clean, nice staff. Great location. Strongly recommended!
It's clean easy access hotel No food available in the afternoon (not even a sandwich)after our arrival.
The location, the staff, the room decorations, the room service, the quiet at night and particularily the breakfast. hi speed internet, Rather small elevators [to be expected in a building of that age], A/C a bit undersized.
