Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient, central location near shopping, restaurants, and sights
  • Bright, updated rooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free Wi-Fi
  • Modern bathrooms with hydro massage showers
  • Sunny breakfast room with city views and nice buffet
  • Small but modern lobby with plenty of lounge space and free coffee/tea

Cons

  • Double beds are two twin beds pushed together (typical in Madrid)
  • Must climb stairs to reach the elevators
  • Minimal amenities: no fitness center, spa, or pool

Bottom Line

The highlight of Petit Palace Alcala Torre is its fabulous location, within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and sights. The 59 bright rooms are up to date and attractive with flat-screen TVs, modern bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. A variety of room categories includes triple rooms, with one large bed and bunk beds, and a duplex with a loft-style bedroom. The rooms' minimalist, contemporary decor continues in the lobby and the sunny breakfast room as well. Though this 15-story building has elevators, there are quite a few stairs to climb before reaching them. This is a solid pick in Madrid's historic area for location and value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Chueca, Madrid's lively LGBT neighborhood, full of restaurants, bars, and great small stores

The Petit Palace Alcala Torre is located on a small street that runs into Gran Via, a historic avenue in the heart of Madrid. There are dozens of restaurants and cafes nearby, and many major attractions such as Cibeles, El Prado Museum, Puerta del Sol, and Plaza Mayor are within easy walking distance. Chueca neighborhood, with its narrow, winding streets full of small, intimate restaurants, lively bars, and gay-friendly venues, is one of the nightlife hotspots in Madrid, and is just a few blocks from the property.

Sol is the heart of Madrid, both geographically speaking and in a figurative sense. “Kilometer Zero” (where all roads in Spain are said to start), shopping, dining, nightlife, and major tourist attractions are all here. This means many tourists in Madrid never leave the neighborhood. Also, its central location is ideal for those who like to explore the city on foot. But those who prefer taking public transportation, there are many bus stops and two Metro stations within a few blocks.

  • 18-minute drive to Madrid-Barajas Airport

  • 4-minute walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor
  • 7-minute walk to Cibeles

  • 14-minute walk to Plaza de Oriente, home to the Royal Palace, the Royal Theater, and Sabatini Gardens
  • 15-minute walk to La Almudena Cathedral
  • 15-minute walk to La Latina, a nightlife hotspot
  • 16-minute walk to Reina Sofia Museum
  • 25-minute walk, or 15-minute subway ride, to Templo de Debod Park, with great views and an original Egyptian temple
