Convenient Location

Would recommend Sun, Mar 22, 2015
The hotel is located close to train & airport bus (local and long distance) stations and at least a few attractions. value for money is very good however,WiFi in-room is not available unless you are a Marriott member. Restaurant is way over priced, but decent eateries are nearby.

Couldn't Ask for More

Would recommend Tue, Aug 14, 2012
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.

Educational visit

Would recommend Sat, Feb 25, 2012
Came to Madrid to check out the universities in the city, chose this hotel due to good package offered. Hotel in great location, just down the road from Atocha Metro, Renfe and Cercanías stations, and a short walk from Puerta del Sol and all the tourist attractions. Rooms well furnished and plenty of sunlight, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Money saver

If booking hotel without breakfast included, I'd recommend walking down the road to Atocha Station in the mornings, there's loads of cafés in there that aren't expensive (breakfasts in the cafés along the street is considerably more than in the station, yet still less than in the hotel)

near atocha train station

Would recommend Fri, Oct 14, 2011
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.

Time saver

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

Skip it until Marriott takes over

Would not recommend Sat, Sep 24, 2011
Stay away from this place. The arrogant attitude of the staff erased all the other benefits. I had a neighbor shouting into a cell phone. I could not find a number for reception to complain. Therefore, I went downstairs. I hardly got the words out of my mouth before the receptionist said he was a regular and one of their most important clients. I said if they don't handle this, I will. I think I got action with that threat. WHen I needed a taxi to the train station, I was told to stand on the corner with my luggage and one would automatically stop, as they pass by there all the time. I was dumped out on a street corner without a cab in sight. After a few minutes, I spotted ONE and grabbed it. Fortunately, I left plenty of time. On other questions I found the staff at the desk generally inattentive and arrogant. Marriott bought the chain. Maybe these people will ge canned.

Not the greatest place to stay...

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 15, 2011
First I would like to say the rooms were nice and the housekeeping staff does a great job! I did however feel that the front desk staff was not very helpful and that the hotel seemed to nickel and dime you. Wifi in the room costs FIFTY EUROS!!! I have stayed at 5 star hotels all across the world and I have never seen such high costs. My friend left his passport at a previous hotel and needed to get in contact with them to have them mail it. The staff member checking us in did not want to help and just told him there is a public phone in the lobby for 1 Euro / Minute. After spending 6 Euros on a phone that did not work she decided she would call the hotel from the front desk herself but refused to let him speak to the hotel and then tried to charge him for it!
