Amazing service

We had a brilliant stay in the Sofitel hotel from the moment we arrived everyone was so welcoming. Rachid however went above and beyond and provided us with the most amazing service. We will definitely be back. Thanks Rachid!

Very Good Hotel could be Excellent with a few tweaks.

Madrid, Spain

First off, I need to say...... the restaurant in this place is EXCELLENT. The service is perfectly orchestrated (attentive but not over the top), The menu is varied but simple, The wine list varied and quite expansive, and the three lady chefs in the kitchen really should all be walking around with Michelin Stars on their whites. The Lobster was SO good, I had to ask the waiter to bring the chef so I could thank her personally, it was truly excellent food and service. So thanks guys! OK, onto the hotel... It's nice, the staff are very attentive and friendly. The surroundings and rooms are well-furnished and everything is clean. Reception and concierge work well, and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is above average, ample parking, and the hotel is well situated about 10 mins from the centre of town. So... what's the problem? Only one small but irritating one... Imagine having great friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble, they REALLY want to help, but... haven't received the training, that's how it feels. ONLY, in the room service and breakfast areas I must add! Used Breakfast tables are just left full of used crockery and cutlery, tables aren't cleared, and then they rush around trying to clear up due to more guests arriving. No clean bowls and plates are left for new clients, you constantly need to ask (can I have a plate, or a bowl, or you find yourself running around for salt and pepper etc)... Give it some attention guys, you could turn a very good hotel into a great hotel.
