The location is terrible, the rooms are bland and the service leaves much to be desired. I stayed at this hotel on a weeklong business trip and were it not for the cancellation fine, would have left immediately. My room's ceiling had clear water damage and was falling apart. I was woken up by the cleaning staff walking through the...

The room was clean and comfortable. Going to tourist destinations like Plaza Major or El Sol was an inexpensive taxi ride away. Walking to the Prado, central park and T station wasn't too bad. But, on Sunday morning, when we were leaving, there were no taxis outside to take us to the train station and the hotel person said they...

Firstly, a quick moan about lastminute.com. We booked this hotel through lastminute.com's "Top Secret Hotels" promotion, the first time using this method. Described as a "Centrally located hotel in front of Atocha Station" we figured this was a decent location and price for a 4* hotel on our first visit to Madrid (got it for around £300 for 5 nights...

Stayed for 1 night near the station Atocha. Neighbourhood wasn't nice, rooms were boring. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great. The hotel was convenient for us but I wouldn't stay here for a leisure trip.

I got stuck with this hotel through priceline and was worried when I read the reviews on here. The hotel itself is fine, the rooms were quite nice, very clean and the bed comfy. We caught the metro from the airport and got off at the Atocha station. I thought the reviews were right when the cab took 10 minutes...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Chose it mainly because of the location - "close" to the Atocha train station. It turned out to be a 15 min walk. The room was nice and clean. Free broadband internet but the wireless was quite expensive. The neighborhood seamed safe.

I had read other reviews about the hotel and the area and was concerned when my bid on Priceline was accepted. After staying there, I have no issues with the hotel or area.

Located a walking distance from main train station, this hotel is a better option for business travellers rather than for tourists. My room was located on the 1st floor near metting rooms so at 7 am i would hear some noise from the hotel staff preparing the room for meetings. The room is confortable, the bathroom what you would expect.
