This budget hotel is perfectly situated two minutes walk from gran via metro station and many of the central city attractions. For the price it offers comfort and security although, understandably not the service you would expect from a four/five star hotel. The location did have several working people, both tradesmen/builders in the daytime and working ladies in the evening. This is common to a number of European cities so can be expected in this type of area.
the reception was rather dull but the staff were very pleasant. when i go to my room it is VERY tired and TV didnt work the stool in the bathroom had died and gone to heaven i think ! it wasnt dirty but not great ! The location is wonderful right next to the grand vie and some good shops! The dining area is in the almost basement so a bit dark . The Breakfast was unmemorable sadly- Its three star but only just !!!! not my best hotel experience !!!
I stayed four nights at the Laris over Christmas. Very professional and friendly staff, nice, large room, and everything was clean and functional. The location was perfect for me (it's two minutes from Gran Via metro station, right between the hip cafes of Malasana and the crowds of the large avenues). I had a great time!
