Editorial review:

Best Western Hotel Carlos V has a loyal following for this family-run hotel that has an old fashioned style, such as the suit of armor in the lobby. Rooms are functional. Rooms on top floors have large balconies. A plus is that you’re on a pedestrian street with few bars whose noise would keep you up at night.

Verified Reviews:

  • Attractions are in walking distance - Room was clean - Bar quite pleasant - Hourly transport service
  • Wonderful boutique hotel - Lobby is small but lovely - Nice lounge - Great breakfast
  • Internet service was free - No tea/coffee making facilities - I'd stay here again
  • Steps away from the metro - Bath was clean - Beds aren't the best - Staff was very friendly
  • Perfect location - Right in the heart of puerta de sol - Room was a good size

    I needed a hotel in madrid at short notice. I chose this hotel due to its location and the rating it had on Booked.net. In my opinion the location is the only reason to stay here.

    A very disappointing experience. The room was small and a bit outdated. The room was very warm as we couldn't use the air conditioning due to the smell it made when on. There was one window which looked onto pipes and let in very little light. The bathroom was tiny and the shower was very poor (temperature & pressure) and it didn't drain very well. For the money I paid I felt very let down.

    very well located, in the center of the shopping area (calle Preciados) very quiet despite the proximity of the stores

    old furnished, smoking smell in the room

    The location was fantastic. Staff was great--very helpful.

    Air conditioner did not cool enough. Low air flow. It was very hot in the city, though. It would have helped to lower the allowable temperature setting.

  • Older travelers

    The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is well maintained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bar/breakfast room is pleasant.

    Breakfast is perhaps overpriced.

    Location, breakfast, room, service and free internet/ wi fi. Good 3 star hotel for the price.

    Shower a bit small for american body. Cheap plastic drinking glasses that collapse if not held correctly, like on the palm...these glasses were really light.

    The excelllent situation right in city. City trips. Nice bathroom. Close to the metro station. Clean room and bathroom. Single room.

    Poor isolation. Doorshutter to the rooms very loud! Breakfast buffet quite poor and some fruits mouldy.... Reception could be friendlier.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location was excellent, near shopping and right in the middle of the city.Breakfast buffet was very nice. Three free computerterminals with printer.was good..Rooms were clean and bathroom was good size with handshower.

    Our room was small and because of the frozen windows , very dark and depressing..The airconditionsystems was old and very laud.Twinbed was too narrow for two adults and the room was far away from the pictures there are shown on the website.Only one engl. channel on tv.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I was impressed by their knowledge of English language. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the room was comfortable with everything we could need

    We were disappointed with happy hour.at the bar. It was advertised as "buy one get one free" between 5 and 7 pm. We expected to be able to continue to buy one and get one free throughout that time, but were told it was only the one drink free. This should be highlighted with the advertisement for happy hour to avoid any confusion.

    No TV options. No Egnlish channels etc.
