Good Value.

We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate New Year, and found the hotel to be well situated to the tourist spots and nightlife (approx. 10 - 15 mins walk via several nice Tapas bars). The hotel is very clean and close to the Metro, so cant really ask for more.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great value for money

Great stay, great location with a metro station within metres of the hotel entrance although there are some great bars and restaurants within walking distance in the area of La Latina. For what we paid the hotel is tremendous value for money with modern, clean rooms and a very good breakfast with loads of choice included in the price. All in all an excellent stay for very little money.

Great spot for Madrid first timer !

The Ganivet is a clean but basic hotel and in a great location just a few minutes walk from Plaza Major and Peurta Del Sol. We took the metro to and from the airport. Its 5euro each - one way but local journeys are about 1.50 and you can reach anywhere by metro or the sightseeing bus which picks up around the corner on Calle San Francisco. The buffet breakfast (7 till 10;30)was good enough to get you fed till lunch time and the local restaurants and tavernas were all great value for money. Front desk staff all spoke good english and were very helpful with maps and local directions. The chambermaid also went beyond her basic duties and folded clothes and kept our room in great condition for our 4 night stay. The guys behind the bar were also very impressive with their prompt service, lots of complimentary tapas and freely poured vino reserva :) I would definately return here considering the great location and low cost of this hotel. I wouldnt recommend staying here with kids as there is nothing here for them.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great Bartenders with plenty of free Tapas !!

Great Location for Everything

Location is excellent to visit all attractions in Madrid. Hotel is clean and comfy. Reception staff are multi-lingual and professional. Buffet breakfast is good although three days of similar food was enough. Even the cleaner was singing at full voice!! However we did book a double room and received a twin. Not a problem but we were in the front of the hotel overlooking the road and the shouting and noise at all hours of the morning was not good. I believe there is a disco/nightclub not far up the same road. Would stay again but would insist on a room at the back of the hotel.

Excellent location

Room was spotless on arrival - asked for a room at back of hotel because heard reviews that was a bit noisier at the front of the hotel. Excellent choice of breakfast buffet style all very fresh each morning. Ideal location close to Plaza Mayor and easy access to everywhere on the metro and local bus only 34 euros for 2 people for a 3 day (metro/bus ticket) can even use this to get to the airport. Bus stop right outside hotel get no 23, 17 or 35 upto Plaza Mayor and the La Latina district. Staff was excellent they went out of their way to find us a needle and cotton. bar man Jesus was excellent and really friendly. Also really near there was the Market San Miquel which was excellent just to the side of the main square they sold tapas and wine and local beers had little benches and chairs and atmosphere was great.

The best thing about my stay was...

everything was easily accessible,

Comfortable and very pleasant stay

Very good location, easy walking distance to Madrids main attractions. Hotel staff on arrival were very pleasant and helpful. Our rooms were ready even though we arrived early morning which was a nice surprise. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and breakfast was included in price which was very good value for money. Would have no hesitation returning to Ganivet and would also recommend to friends.
