The reception area has one desk, and a few metres away is a larger reception room with sofas.
There's a bright stained glass window next to a marble wall with pillars and a stone statue.
The hotel was refurbished in 2004 and has an avant-garde feel.
There are two rooms specially adapted for disabled access, with hand railings, wide access doors and lowered surfaces.
There are two meeting rooms that can cater for up to 1000 guests. Supplementary services are: secretary service, wi-fi internet, and media service (equipment such as screens and projectors).

The Paseo del Prado Madrid is in an excellent location, just two minutes walk from the Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums. It looks over the fountain of Neptune in the centre of the roundabout. Downstairs there are two coffee bars, and next door is a restaurant. There's a cash point machine on the next street (San Jeronimo), and a newsstand a few metres away. Across the Paseo del Prado (just outside leading up to the roundabout), there is a small souvenir market. You can get breakfast at either of the two coffee bars next to the hotel if you want to eat out. They both have outside seating in the summer too.
