near atocha train station

This is a lovely hotel - good value - an easy 10 min walk from Atocha train station. Spacious, well designed, very clean. Staff was so pleasant and helpful. Perfect location for day-tripping in and out of Madrid by train. There is also a (yellow)bus that runs every 20 mins from the train station to the airport, so we easily got to the airport at 7:30 am from this location, at a cost of only 2 euro each. The area was very safe - somewhat residential in feel, and there were many restaurants in the area. Less than 10 mins to the Reina Sofia, less than 15 walking to the Prado or Parque Retiro.

the yellow bus from Atocha to the airport (or vice versa) is easy, cheap and reliable. Staying near Atocha station allowed us to maximize our time for trips to Toledo, Cordoba, etc

Nice Experience

This Hotel was perfect for us. Clean room, nice neighborhood, within walking distance to the Plaza Mayor, The Palace, Atocha Train Station,Art Museum, and Madrid Tour Bus. Street is lined with bakeries, boutiques, and plenty of places to enjoy the local food and drink. We encountered a helpful, English speaking staff. Room is modern with plasma TV, and a small refrigerator which is stocked with "free, non alcoholic beverages".Work station in lobby. Breakfast buffet, with various offerings ,available for 14 Euro.

Very Nice Hotel - Great Location

This was a very nice hotel. Clean and modern with very friendly staff. It was a little noisy, on a busy street. But the location was worth it as all of the places we visited were within walking distance. The train station and a metro stop were only a couple of blocks away if we did not want to walk. We used the metro after visiting the Palacio Real as it was a bit of a hike after a long day. The breakfast buffet was a little expensive. We went elsewhere for breakfast. I also wish there had been free wireless internet access in the room.

Very good hotel and location.

The room was large and comfortable. The restrooms are also large. For the price we were very happy with the condition of the hotel, cleanliness,and the rooms were made ready daily. The hotel provided daily toiletries. The room also had a small refrigerator with some complimentary drinks and this was a very nice added feature. Be advised that the 2 elevators are small and you can fit no more than four people at a time. If you are using the trains to arrive or depart then the Atochu rail station is within walking distance. Don't worry you do not hear the trains at the hotel. You are within walking distance if you like to some of the museums like the Prado, El Retiro park with the crystal palace and the fallen angel, and to the Botanical Gardens. The other sites like the Royal Palace and Cathedral you will have to take the metro which is close by or a taxi.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you plan to do a lot of sight seeing buy the Madrid pass in advance, start the day early and plan you intinerary. It is hard to do everything you want in a short period due to tourist lines at some of the locations and places closing down for lunch. If you purchase the tourist pass make sure and check because the Line for entry at the museums, Royal Palace will be differnt then for the general public. This will allow you to get ahead of some of the Lines.

Fair accomodation in Madrid

Nice hotel in the Atocha area of Madrid. Room are well furbished and maintained. Closed to Atocha station, the hotel is a little far from main commercial area (Puerta del Sol / Salamanca area) but it is closed to main museums (Prado, Reina Sofia & Tyssen). Reception is fast but not very welcoming... Ask for high floor room to prevent street noises as the hotel is positioned on a high traffic street. I would reccomend it to everyone looking for a reasonably priced accomodation in a semi central area of Madrid (if you don't like to walk... look for something else).

EMT Bus connect the airport to Atocha station and then it is a short walk to the hotel. This is the cheapest / easy way to reach the city center.
