This hotel is in a very nice location. clean and friendly staff. The rooms are very nice it is very big, It has a king bed and bunk bed. I am not a huge fan of the bunk bed because I found it uncomfortable and it had no duvet so I had to borrow my mums and the bed was very low I also had to borrow another pillow from my mum. The room has good wifi, the room also offers free bottles of waters, but it was a little bit noisy I could hear the other guests and I would of have like a window looking at the city there was only one window but in the shower which was kind of awkward because if you were having a shower then your neighbours could see you. The breakfast was a bit pedestrian it didn't offer a great variety of food the usual cereal, toast but it kind let it down I wanted more. The best part was coming from a long day of sight seeing in Madrid and coming to drinks and chocolate. This hotel is very good it offered great service.

Its hard to find reasonably priced hotel rooms in central Madrid (or in Europe) that fit a family of 4. Certainly we can rent an apartment, but its not convenient for short stays. This hotel is close to Atocha train station, the museums, and the Lavapies metro. Very friendly staff, free coffee and breakfast, nice room. Overall, we had an excellet stay, and we will definitely stay at Artrip again when we visit Madrid.

We visited back in Jan 2016 and if the management is the same still I really recommend this family run hotel. Small but stylish, interesting area close enough to walk to main art galleries, simple enjoyable Spanish breakfast and an owner who will genuinely engage, discuss Spanish history, and give practical help. Interesting non touristy location, and a rare experience in the “pre packaged” world of modern tourism. We would certainly visit again. Very happy memories.

We stayed here for three nights in December 2017 - two adults and two teenagers in a room with one bed and two bunkbeds. When looking for a hotel in Madrid, our main criterion was to find a place close to Atocha train station as we were taking an early-morning train. The hotel is close to Atocha - about 10-15 minutes to walk. It is also about 10-15 minutes from the El Prado museum and Plaza Mayor. There are lots of restaurants and little shops all around and a huge supermarket just a two-minute walk up the road. If you like Indian cuisine, there are also lots of Indian restaurants. There were always lots of people in the street, so we felt safe. The room was big enough and everything worked well. The wifi was good. We had free bottled water in the room (actually, you can drink water from the tap in Madrid). A great thing was that in the kitchen area all day there was a coffee machine, some snacks, and cool fruit juice. It was great to come home to the hotel after walking around Madrid all day and being able to enjoy a cold drink. We were in a room at the back of the building and heard absolutely no noise. The window in our room let in light from an internal courtyard area. That was good - enough light and privacy. The breakfast was ok - the usual Spanish ham and cheese and other items. All the hotel staff were polite, and I would like to mention particularly Juliana.

I selected this hotel because of great reviews on TripAdvisor. I find that many "one off" boutique hotels seem to get overrated--maybe because people think they're being posh or trendy staying at this type of property? This hotel has a strange layout. The room that I was assigned only had a couple small windows that opened up to what were essentially small ventilation shafts. Consequently, the room felt a bit like a dungeon--and smelled like one as well. Also, the flooring material throughout the room--including the bathroom--was something similar to a fine weave, commercial grade, sisal mat material. This worked fine in the bedroom space, however, it was a terrible idea in the bathroom area. This material would trap water (and anything else that spilled on it) and it would be nearly impossible to clean and/or sanitize. As a result, the bathroom area had a musty smell that was being somewhat masked by some powerful scent-sticks in the toilet area. The scent from those was so strong that I found it super annoying--even in the bed area (which was separated from the shower and toilet area by only a sliding "barn door" style door. Also, the room did not have a desk--so I found it somewhat awkward trying to get some work done--sitting on the somewhat soiled velvet covered couch with no type of table to work on. Again, all of this fell into what I would call the "artsy and unusual--but not practical or functional" category. I will not stay at this hotel again.

Modern, minimalist hotel near the art district and interesting ethnic neighbourhood. Very close to the metro and main railway station. Comfortable room with good shower. Healthy buffet breakfast and 24 hour coffee on tap. Very friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended.

fast and helpful communication prior to our trip. I messed up our travel dates and they were able to adjust at no charge. After 15-20 minute taxi ride from the airport, we arrived at the Artrip around noon. We had let them know our arrival time and our rooms were ready. We were given two rooms that were "connected" by an entrance from the main hall that had 2 separate entrances to each room. This was convenient as we were travelling with a child and grandparents. We could close the door to the hall, but prop our doors open allowing our child to safely go between the two rooms. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We especially liked the mobile hot spots that we could take with us each day while out. The metro is a block away, the Reina Sofia a 10 minute walk, and the neighborhood is not touristy. The daily breakfast was delicious and enough to start each day. The all day coffee and tea is convenient. I would definitely stay here again.

Location was great. Super close to Lavapies metro station and Reina Sofia music plus lots of bars/restaurants. Room was very nice and loved the layout. Had a room with a balcony overlooking the street but it was never loud. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Only complaint would be the internet. Was intermittent/slow.

From the kind receptionists, to the comfortable amenities in this hotel you cannot miss the opportunity to stay in one of the rooms at Artrip! They provide you with a portable WIFI to take around the city with you, as well as super fast connections in the hotel while you reminisce on your wonderful adventures in Madrid. You have access to fresh juices, delicious coffee, and breakfast treats, Artrip surely knows how to start your day off the right way! The modern art walking into the lobby is so refreshing as well as the construction of the entire building! We cannot wait to come back!

My wife and I stayed 10 days. This hotel is off the main path but conveniently located in between 2 metro stations. Very important especially if you plan to get around Madrid without paying for a taxi every time. The Junior Suite was a good size room for us. Breakfast is available for 6 euros. The staff was great recommending places to see and even helped set up some tours. You will enjoy your stay here whether you stay 1 night or several. Tell them the Watkins family from Houston said "hello."
