I stayed two nights at the hotel in November 2008. Was glad that I booked one of the large balcony rooms (74) and was even more impressed by the wonderful metal and wood SOHO sign on the terrace ledge.
The room itself was very well organised, with an excellent working/living space and a comfortable bed. Different lighting combinations could be set to make the room look warmer or cooler.
Breakfast was included in the price and it was very attractively presented in a funky environment.
Street noise was slightly annoying but this is to be expected on the Gran Via.
I would definitely consider coming back to stay at this hotel.
