Couldn't Ask for More

My family spent three night there, in two rooms. The staff was very, very helpful upon check-in and indeed, throughout our stay. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The location was exactly what we wanted (close to Retiro and Prado). The free wi-fi in the lobby was more than sufficient for our needs. The free minibar (non-alcoholic) was a nice perk. Even though this is a "business" hotel, it served our family very well. Only thoughts on improvements: soundproofing on rooms is not the best, and noise from the street and other rooms was a minor issue. Also, the beds left a little to be desired. We would definitely stay again, and encourage others to do so as well.

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

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.

Carlton Hotel Madrid

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

Wonderful Hotel!!! Amazing Value

The hotel was in a great location, very close to the metro (Atocha station). It was not a far walk to the city center at all. The rooms was extremely clean and the bathroom had all new shower, sink, etc. The breakfast was delicious and a great way to start the day! I definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to Madrid.

location alright, staff less so

The location was not bad. It was two blocks from a metro line, three or four blocks from the Reina Sofia and Atocha train station so was a great place to start our stay in Madrid. The staff was a bit unhelpful, we had to wait a long time to get someone to help us even though there were two people behind the desk. Once we even gave up. We didn't have any problems with checking in or out, there just had to be no one else around when you went to the desk, or you would not be helped. The room was clean and trendy with a great updated bathroom including a jet tub.

Stay here if you want to be close to the Atocha train station, but there are better hotels more central to the city.
