Recent guest reviews
The hotel and service were adequate, refreshment bar in the lobby was a nice touch. Due to the location, however, we could not sleep at all. The boulevard is lined with night clubs and the noise lasted until the morning.
It is right next to the railway station (30 minutes walking with the bags). It has a metro station 10 minutes walking up the hill.the hotel is located 15 mins walking from almost all the action. It is located in a famous street so if you will use taxis they all know it. The hotel is clean. Simple. Has the basics which you will need if you will use the hotel only for crashing. The staff are helpful and one of them speaks Arabic (which was a pleasant surprise for us)
We stayed for 2 nights and changed rooms between nights. The hotel is well located, a 5 minute walk from Atocha station and from the Prado. The area is a bit of a dive, full of bars, but a 5 minute walk up the hill brings to you an area with an abundance of cafes, boutique shops and a market. The hotel is pretty basic, but priced for it. Our hotel room was on Calle Atocha the first night - and the hotel windows don't have double glazing. We heard every car and every street fight from our room and every bus, which ran late and started early. The room was extraordinarily noisy. The bathroom was also designed so it faced the bedroom - not very private. We asked to be moved for the second night and we were moved to an internally facing room on the 6th floor. This was much quieter and much better. The hotel has no breakfast facilities, but has 24 hour tea and coffee facilities. There is a great bakery 2 blocks up the hill. The hotel also has a nice rooftop terrace, accessible to all guests, with good views. Overall the hotel was fairly basic, but the amenity reflected the price which was very competitive for this area. Given a quiet room the hotel is worthwhile in our opinion.
Pros: excellent location, very close to railroad station and metro, close to airport shuttle stop, short walk to Prado Museum Reina Sofia Museum and Retiro Park, free coffee & cold water, adequately clean, large shower, adequate room lighting and curtains, adequate room size. Cons: lumpy mattresses, dark hallways, thin walls, no door to toilet, maids left room with door ajar while gone all day, noisy area of town, no safe/lockbox in room, terrace of poor quality (definitely not as pictured), mediocre views, some staff friendly and others not so much. In total, I would recommend this hotel to a friend looking for a cheap place in Madrid with a great location as a priority. I would however, tell them to go with low expectations and invite no more than 1 friend to share room.
This is a simple hotel, well priced in the very heart of Madrid, the rooms are air conditioned. A great plus when external temperatures are reaching the high 30s Celsius. Our room was on the 6th floor, with easy access to their roof terrace, good for a late evening glass of wine or a snack. Very friendly and helpful staff. No breakfast, but you can go out locally and buy it and eat it in the lobby with free (excellent) coffee. The free col d water in the lobby was also a lifesaver.
Nothing plush - clean and small - good shower - stayed 4 nights - arrived as Real Madrid won Cup so place buzzing - good bars & restaurants near by - near Prado , Retro Park, Botanical Gardens Renia Sophie & Atocha Train Station and Metro - walked all day - slept well - not too noisy - complimentary tea & coffee At reception - repairs needed in room badly
Though basic and spare, we thought this hotel was very good value. It was our first hotel in Spain, and after travelling around the country for a month, it receives even higher praise compared to some others that we stayed in. The self serve coffee (and biscuits) in the lobby were a particular bonus, and the only time we experienced that in Spain. We liked making a coffee when we got back after dinner, and sitting on the roof top patio. I believe we got a superior room, and it was plenty roomy for us. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect, especially if using the Atocha Station.
We stayed here for our two nights in Madrid. Location was perfect, within a five minute walk to the Atocha Train Station, and near the museums we were interested in seeing. Our room was clean, basic, spartan, modern, all white and with an excellent shower! No fridge, no chair (except for a small ottoman)... but hot water/tea/cookies available 24 hrs down in the lobby. If you are not planning on spending much time in your room, this is the perfect hotel for your needs.
You pay for what you get in this hotel, it is very basic, I did not like that there was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, you can make one in the foyer but I would rather have this facility in my room. I would not stay here again but that is because I like a few more comforts not because the hotel was that bad, like I said you get what you pay for.
I stayed here for one night in May 2017. I chose the hotel for its proximity to the train station and the coffee machine in the lobby - it seemed like a good idea before my early flight. I was happy with those attributes and I also would like to say that the front desk staff were friendly, helpful, and spoke good English (certainly better than my Spanish!). I had a room facing Calle Atocha (third floor), and found it quite noisy. I didn't think to ask for a quieter room, though - perhaps that would've been helpful. The room I had was spartan - no fridge or other amenities, per se, except for a television. The wifi worked, but the signal was weak. The one thing I thought was really curious is that there was no door separating the toilet from the rest of the room. Yes, I booked a single and there was nobody to offend, but if I'd had anyone visiting for a bit, it could've been awkward! I'd stay here again if I had a quick turn-around in Madrid and needed a place near the train station, but if I had days to enjoy the city, I'd probably consider another hotel.
