I was happy to have brought my own shampoo and soap. There was some poorly packaged liquid wash and similar shampoo. I used it. It was fine. But my own was better. I especially like a bar of soap rather than these liquid soaps. Also, I don't get housekeeping every day. In the eleven days I had it just one day, on the day I went to Hervas and took all my valuables with me.
This pattern gives me complete access to my room all day. I can take a nap whenever I want and not be disturbed.
They did not have a safe, even in the main office. So, I had to carry all valuables with me in a city where pick pockets are common.
It was right next door and took the place of a lobby bar in the hotel.
and talked to the fellow in charge, but I lost the card with the information.
Calle Esparteros 6, 28012 Madrid, Spain (Centro)
Reservations can be made by email.
An alternative plan would be to stay in Segovia. There I know the hotel I want
Hotel Infanta Isabele
However, I want a room facing the central plaza and that might be hard to negotiate without talking to them directly. Booking on booking.com would not guarantee such a room.
INFANTA ISABEL HOTEL
Tel: +34 921 461 300 Fax: +34 921 462 217
Rooms run around $100, with the ones facing the square a bit more than those tucked in the back.
However, I think they book up quite a bit in advance because checking for October, there is only one Superior Room left.
In Madrid I passed this hotel and it looked inviting. The better rates are not refundable. There are early bird specials.
