Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Atlántico occupies an imposing but nevertheless elegant and eclectic-looking building dating back to the early 20th century. It is located in one of the best spots along the Gran Vía, just alongside the legendary Plaza de Callao. Among the strong points at this 4 star hotel you'll find a team of extremely friendly staff as well as some beautiful, spacious, and bright guest rooms, some of which are tucked away up on the top floor and offer the most spectacular views across Madrid, .

    Location 9.27 /10

    The Atlántico stands on Madrid's famous century-old avenue, the Gran Vía, one of the main thoroughfares through the city where you'll find plenty to do when it comes to culture, gastronomy, and entertainment. It is also home to a large number of cinemas and theatres, which is why it is known as Madrid's answer to Broadway. For those who may be more familiar with the area, the hotel stands just a stone's throw away from the Plaza de Callao. Also, just next door to the hotel you'll find the city's official Nike shop as well as a menswear boutique, whilst many of the city's other landmarks, including, among others, the Plaza de España, the Puerta del Sol, and even the Royal Palace, are also within easy walking distance. Plus, it is very conveniently located in terms of public transport. There is a bus stop near the entrance where you can catch a bus to almost anywhere in the centre of Madrid. The closest metro stations are Callao (lines 3 and 5, just opposite the hotel) and Gran Vía (lines 1 and 5). You can also hop on the city's suburban rail network at the Sol metro station, whilst Barajas airport is only around 10 and a half mi from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The hotel has a total of 109 Standard and Superior guest rooms, all of which come with a computer keyboard, a flat-screen television broadcasting international channels, two luggage stands, a free safe and an iron and ironing table (in most), not to mention piped music. Bathroom amenities, meanwhile, include bathrobes, slippers, two hair-dryers (one in the bathroom and one on the dressing table in the bedroom), a selection of hospitality products, and a bathtub with a shower screen. In terms of the decor, each room is done out in a very tasteful style, with soft colours, such as blue, pomegranate, and yellow, all combined with beige and either striped or featuring a very discreet pattern, for the walls, fabrics, and furniture, and parquet flooring. It might be worth bearing in mind that those on the second and third floors are smoking rooms. If you're travelling as a family, meanwhile, you'll be pleased to know that the hotel has triple rooms and cots can be provided at no extra charge. There are 2 rooms that have been specially designed for guests with reduced mobility. They have much larger bathrooms than the other rooms, and various features designed to make them more accessible to everyone, such as switches and wardrobe rails positioned low enough to enable those who are vertically challenged to use them with greater ease.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The building housing the hotel is one of Madrid's architectural gems in general and of the Gran Vía in particular. Having said that, its style is not unlike that of some of the city's other symbolic buildings, such as the Casino and even the Ritz and Palace hotels. Designed in 1921 by architect Joaquín Saldaña y López, this monumental, eclectic-looking building is rather Louis-esque, as if offering some sort of tribute to the French art of the 17th and 18th centuries. It stands out for its height, its well-maintained white façade, and its many perfectly harmonious decorative features (columns, kiosks, piers, and vases), among other things. Indeed, for a period of a few years, the building was in fact adorned with the arms of its original owner, the Marquis of Falces. The charm of its exterior is reflected at various points inside the hotel, particularly the terraces and the unique style of the guest rooms. The Atlántico has several terraces where guests can relax with a drink or even just admire the spectacular views across the city. One of them is even adorned with a Greek-style sculpture, various plants, and a few pretty little garden tables, bringing a touch of the Garden of Eden to this city-centre hotel. Let's not forget, either, the great tower, complete with a French cupola topping the building and affording fully panoramic views of Madrid, from the Cerro de los Ángeles ('Hill of the Angels') to the four towers, with the Casa de Campo along the way. This area is in fact heritage-listed (as are many parts of the hotel), so whilst you are welcome to come up and admire the views, you won't find any furniture due to preservation reasons. The 9 storey building has a cafeteria on its first floor, guest rooms between the second and eighth floors, and various communal areas, including several terraces and traditional lounge areas on the ninth floor. The lounges, for their part, are crammed full of classical decorative features such as rugs, paintings, and elegant yet traditional sofas.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The buffet breakfast is the only meal of the day served in the hotel's restaurant (7:30am to 11:30am). You'll find a comprehensive selection of fruit juices, fruit, and hot dishes (including eggs, omelettes, sausages, and bacon), as well as a special dietary corner, various pastries, fresh bread, cold cuts, cheeses, yogurts, and cereals on offer for a cost of around £8 per person. The breakfast room itself is bright and spacious and overlooks the Gran Vía. The cafeteria up on the ninth floor, meanwhile, serves a selection of light meals such as sandwiches and salads, as well as drinks from 3:30pm to 11:30pm. Last but not least, you might be interested to know that a free coffee service is available until 3:00pm on the first floor and later on the ninth floor.

    To know

    The hotel opened in 1934 and occupied only one floor of the building, with the other floors housing mostly private residences. Over time, however, the hotel expanded and now takes up the entire building. For years it belonged to the American Best Western group. A free shuttle service is provided between the airport and the hotel, but the same service from the hotel to the airport costs around £5.30 per person and you will need to book at least 12 hours in advance. Cable and Wi-Fi is provided free of charge for guests throughout the establishment. There are also two computers with an Internet connection and a printer, all of which guests can use free of charge as well.

      This charming three-star hotel is close to the Calle Preciados, one of the busiest shopping streets in Madrid and even in Spain, as well as some of the city's major attractions, including the Puerta del Sol and the Gran Vía. Part of the appeal of this hotel, which has fewer than 70 guest rooms, lies in the level of comfort it provides, the elegant reading lounge and the restaurant, which is, in fact, only open for breakfast. The guest rooms are all more or less identical, with the exception of a few that also come with their own terrace.
