Great hotel but poor front office staff

Unfortunately, we started off on the wrong foot with staff. We had a problem with our passports and the front office staff would not let us use the telephone to make a few calls. They referred us to the public phone but even that one did not work. Despite the hotel being in a very good location and awesome rooms, the first experience and thereafter just left us with a poor feeling throughout our stay. I can only rate it 3 stars due to horrible, poor customer service.

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).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Very good location, excellent hotel room

The hotel was great... the restaurant, not so much. But there are plenty of places to eat around; and the hotel is so good, that the restaurat is not important. I highly recommend it to everybody!
