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

Great location

Good location near the train station, Retiro Park, & El Prado. Lots of little Bar/Cafeterias close by for breakfast. We used the on/off bus & the metro. Took the train to Segovia & Toledo for day trips & then to move to Barc. The hotel was kind enough to let us check in early upon arrival. Friendly staff & clean comfortable room.

Great hotel

Excellent hotel for an affordable price. It was newly remodeled and very modern. The room was spotless, beautiful, comfortable, and really impressed me. Located near Atocha train station and art museums. A bit of a walk to the Puerta del Sol and Gran Via, but the metro is quite easy to figure out and only 1 euro per trip. The breakfast was a bit expensive (13 euro) but offered a great variety of food (and excellent coffee!) so I felt it was worth it. The staff service was outstanding and they were very friendly and helpful! My only complaint was that the water temperature in the shower was finicky and kept changing constantly. Not sure if the walls are thin or if my neighbor was just loud but noise from other rooms was an issue at times as well.

If you love art, you can save a few euro by purchasing the Paseo del Arte pass: for just under 18 euro you get into the Prado, Museo Reina Sofia, and Museo Thyssen.

Very Enjoyable Hotel

The staff were very friendly and helpful without being pushy. The rooms were clean, decent sized and modern looking. When we arrived our shower water was not going down and they immediately rectified the situation, sending a repair person within minutes of our call to fix the drain. I only wish they supplied a hotwater or coffee pot in the room like other hotels. I would definitly stay here again as the bang for buck and location were great. They are minutes from the Reyna Sofia but in a quieter and safe neighborhood.

The room and location are OK, but the staff was not helpful at all. It seems that money is the only thing they see.
