Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central location on Gran Via, near attractions, dining, and nightlife
  • 10-minute walk to the airport express bus stop
  • Contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs and minibars
  • Some rooms have balconies or terraces
  • Clean, updated bathrooms with shower/tub combos
  • Solid breakfast buffet (not included in standard rate)
  • Adequate restaurant and a lobby bar
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Many rooms are small
  • No coffeemakers
  • Rear rooms are a little dark and have no views (but are quieter)
  • No fitness center

Bottom Line

This upper-mid-range property is a solid pick for business and leisure travelers alike. It features attractive, contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and clean, modern bathrooms with shower/tub combos. Decor is a little generic, but touches such as black and white photos of Madrid add some character. A few rooms have balconies or terraces overlooking historic Gran Via, one of the most iconic avenues in town, but most are small, and some face a courtyard and don’t get much natural light. There’s a restaurant serving a solid breakfast buffet, as well as free Wi-Fi and a business center, but the hotel lacks a gym, and there are no in-room coffeemakers. However, the price is fair for location, right in the heart of Madrid. For more spacious and classic rooms, nearby Ada Palace usually has similar rates.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the Gran Via, a historic avenue right in the heart of Madrid

The H10 Villa de la Reina is located on Gran Via, a historic avenue lined by 18th and 19th century buildings, upscale boutiques, and great dining and nightlife, running right through the heart of Madrid. This side of the avenue is actually where the Chueca neighborhood starts, so you’ll have great shopping, dining and nightlife outside the hotel. Gran Via is one of the main thoroughfares in central Madrid, so expect crowds and traffic day and night. The subway, bus and even the train are nearby, but most attractions are within walking distance.

Chueca, with its narrow, winding streets full of small, intimate restaurants, lively bars, and gay-friendly venues is one of the nightlife hot spots in Madrid. It has a decidedly small-town feel to it, but it is undergoing a major overhaul, and areas that were somewhat forgotten are now must-sees, such as San Anton Market, a three-story marketplace with wonderful stores and a beautiful rooftop terrace open year-round. From Thursday to Sunday night, hordes of young locals and tourists alike go bar-hopping, have tapas, and dance until the early morning in this buzzing, young neighborhood.

Sol, located a few blocks from the hotel is part of the grand old Madrid. Most major attractions are in or around this area and can be easily reached on foot. Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace, Cibeles and its gorgeous Palacio de Comunicaciones, the Puerta de Alcala, and even the Retiro park are less that 20 minutes from the hotel.

  • 20-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas Airport
  • Steps to restaurants, bars, shopping, and nightlife
  • 8-minute walk to Cibeles
  • 6-minute walk to Puerta del Sol
  • 11-minute walk to Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
  • 10-minute walk to Plaza Mayor
  • 13-minute walk to El Prado Museum
  • 13-minute walk to Puerta de Alcala
  • 15-minute walk to upscale shopping on Serrano Street
  • 14-minute walk to Retiro Park, Madrid’s most famous garden
  • 14-minute walk to Plaza de Oriente, home to the Royal Palace, the Royal Theater, and Sabatini Gardens
  • 16-minute walk to La Latina, a nightlife hotspot
  • 22-minute walk to Reina Sofia Museum
  • 18-minute walk to La Almudena Cathedral
  • 20-minute walk or 13-minute Metro ride to Templo de Debod Park, with great views and an original Egyptian temple
  • 21-minute Metro ride to Plaza de Castilla, the financial district
