Rated 3 out of 5 by Pepe34 The gym should be free of charge
I'm very disappointed to find that in 5* hotel, like this one, the gym is not free of charge, but costs EUR 18/day!! In any hotel which a stayed in, even 3* hotels, the gym is a facility given to the guests free of charge. I can understand that you can pay a fee for other services, like massages or spa or even the use of swimming pool; but, frankly, this hotel applies very unusually, on the base of my large experience, a fee (very expensive!) to use the gym.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos A New SPG Winner
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I had my doubts about the location for visitors coming for the classic sights but the proximity of the metro makes this property an appealing retreat from the more congested areas of the city. The beauty of the property and the pleasantness of the staff more than compensate.
SPG RECOGNITION: Being an all-suite property, there isn’t too much they can add but I was upgraded to the top floor club level - billed as “a hotel within a hotel” and given Club access which, of course, includes breakfast. The staff reception was model and I appreciated the personal Welcome note from the director.
THE ROOM: Absolutely fabulous. Elegantly decorated with Spanish design flair but, at the same time, invitingly homey. Sumptuous pillow-top mattress and down pillows. Handy kitchen corner and dining area. Gorgeous large free-form bath with separate toilet, shower and bath areas. Beautiful view over the Puerta de Europa.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Free shuttle to and from the airport is definitely a bonus. The Club is elegant. Public areas are very beautiful and feature dramatic atrium-style architecture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neoteros Strongly recommended!
The hotel is not exactly down town (though, subway station is just at 3 min walk).
Location apart, this is a facility you can only be entusiastc of!
From the vast and elegant circular shaped lobby, with it's domed roof reminding the Pantheon in Rome (included the big eye/hole at the center), to the modern yet warm furniture in the rooms.
From the incredibly responsive, smiling, caring front desk, to the delicious buffet constantly served at the club lounge on the top floor (fantastic view of the "Sierra").
From the properly equipped fitness center and spa, to the full recognition I enjoyed as platinum member.
No smudges whatsoever!
I do look forward to the next time I'll visit Madrid and stay at Sheraton Madrid Mirasierra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TimTrish A wonderful place to stay
This hotel is excellent...need I say anymore? The quality is very evident from the moment you are greeted by the staff and walk in. Facilities are really great (Gym, Spa, Pool etc). The gym has some state of the art equipment. Rooms are very comfortable with small kitchenette /bar. The views across the plains to the snow capped mountains are very compelling. Club lounge has to be one of the best we have used . Location is ideal with 5/10 min walk to Metro that takes you all across Madrid. Visited twice now and just booked a 3rd trip .....Fantasico

Rated 2 out of 5 by SG17 Needs improvement
What was good:
- was contacted before the stay. I asked for a room with a view, and was given this room on my second night
- room was spacious and nice
What needs to be improved
- food quality was poor
- was the worst internet of any of the 25+ SPG properties I have stayed at
- Can't believe that they charge 3 Euros to send an empty plate to my room
- maybe it was just my room, but the TV remote didn't work
- first hotel I been to where access to the SPA is not a part of every room rate - and the SPA was not great. very smelly and not at all refreshing..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ortega Home away from home
Been going to this hotel for 4 years, about 20 stays a year. It is a home away from home, and the staff makes sure to help with any odd requests.
Thanks to the staff here I stopped going to the Westin Palace downtown.
Great views of "la sierra" from the top floor...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikita Perfect service and value
All aspects of my stay were very good or excellent. Breakfast has delicious Spanish meats and cheeses, other expensive products like pine nuts and salmon. Spa has great splash zone. Club lounge on tenth floor offers quality snacks and vines. Tasty hot food serves from 6 to 8 p.m. Hotel staff performs exceptionally professional service with highest possible level of knowledge. I enjoyed my stay very much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ace23 Fantastic hotel in a nice neighborhood.
I stay here each time I visit Madrid because of the quality of the hotel & staff. Excellent service, location & amenities. You are only a 15 minute ride from MAD to the hotel via a free shuttle service provided by the hotel. The hotel is in an upscale neighborhood just outside of the city center (Estadio Santiago Bernabéu is a 9-12 Euro taxi ride). Well worth the taxi fare when compared to 400eu per night in Madrid proper for a much smaller room. The hotel is Bright & CLEAN and the SPG club is outstanding.
