Time Out says
Posted: Thu May 1 2014A few minutes' walk from the Gran Vía and the metro, the Alexandra-Sterling is well located for sightseeing. All rooms are clean and pretty quiet, but you can request an interior room to avoid the traffic noise from C/San Bernardo. Although the hotel is slightly anonymous in its style, the staff are friendly and the area and prices just that little bit less touristy than if you cross the Gran Vía towards Sol. All rooms are fully equipped and free Wi-Fi and a buffet breakfast are included.
