The NH Abascal, which occupies and elegant mid-20th century building, is a 4-star establishment offering quiet and comfortable rooms. Moreover, it stands in one of the more traditional streets of Madrid, just a stone's throw from the Paseo de la Castellana. Art is the hotel's predominant feature, both inside and out. What is more, the hotel exhibits several works by Javier Mariscal, among other artists. Its two courtyards and the conservation of a large part of the original building, including some magnificent marble stairways, add to its charm. Cinema stars, athletes and various high-ranking politicians, who once stayed in embassies or private residences, are now frequent guests of the hotel.

    Location 5.0 /10

    The NH Abascal is located in Chamberí, one of the more traditional neighbourhoods of Madrid, only 300 metres from the Paseo de Castellana. The neighbourhood is crammed with restaurants, coffee shops, shops and places of interest, such as the Sorolla Museum or the Natural Science Museum, which can easily be reached on foot. Other tourist sites, such as the Puerta del Sol and the Prado Museum, are only a 10-minute drive away. Alternatively, the closest metro station, Gregorio Marañón (lines 7 and 9), is only 300 metres away. Some other pieces of information you might find useful: Atocha railway station is 2.5 mi away and Barajas airport is approximately 8 mi away. Thanks to its location close to the city's ring road (the M30), the hotel offers good access to Madrid's airport.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The hotel has a total of 183 rooms, 118 of which are standard rooms. The rest of them are divided into the following categories: 42 superior rooms, 7 premium rooms and 10 junior suites. The difference between categories depends on the view they offer, as the superior rooms look out onto José Abascal street. Although traffic around the hotel is relatively heavy, the rooms are properly soundproofed, and so you'll not be disturbed by any noise, whatever the time of day or night. The junior suites stand out for their size. Among the premium rooms, there are four communicating rooms with their own separate terrace. The interior rooms afford a beautiful view of the elegantly furnished interior courtyard. Whatever the room you're staying in, it's bound to be spacious and decorated in earthy pastel tones, making for a tranquil setting. They're fitted with a clothes stand, a hair-dryer, a TV broadcasting more than 30 channels, a mini-bar, a desk and a reading chair. The premium rooms and junior suites are provided with a bathrobe, slippers and a shower (in addition to the bathtub). The other amenities offered by the NH group and specifically by the Abascal hotel are the selection of pillows, the mobile phone charger, breakfast for early birds (served from 5.00am) and the wake-up calls. As a courtesy gift, guests are given a book of short stories containing some of the entries of a literary competition organised by the hotel group.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The NH Abascal was built in 1929 by architect Manuel Galínez. It's built in a neo-classical and aristocratic style, a feature best-seen in its elegant façade, the two towers on either side of the building and the refined stonework of the base of the building and its main entrance door. It was once a residential complex before then being turned into an embassy building. Opening as a hotel in 1998, the establishment uses the qualities of the original building to highlight the elegance of the furniture and interior decorating. Among other remarkable features, there are two paintings by Valencian artist, Javier Mariscal, the designer of the mascot of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games (Cobi). These works of art are displayed in the entrance hall, opposite the magnificent door that opens onto an equally impressive stairway. In the corridors that lead to the rooms, don't forget to admire the beautiful windows and their original lead frames (restored). The former garages have been turned into two luxury suites that afford a view of the courtyard and its garden. The former passageway for horse-drawn carriages, with its impressive original gate, now serves as the entrance hall, and includes the reception area and several relaxation rooms. Beyond this building, you'll come across another which houses the accommodation units and a third that contains offices.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The hotel's restaurant serves a buffet breakfast as well as lunch and dinner à la carte. There is a coffee shop available, where you can enjoy a drink, a nibble, or a cocktail before lunch or dinner. The breakfast is varied and of good quality. It includes fruit juice, a selection of fruit, cereal, pastries, bread, meat cuts and hot dishes. The cuisine is typical of the Basque-Navarro region. For an average price of £35, you can have 'a la parrilla' meat (i.e. grilled meat), fish, and of course the famous 'pintxos' (local sandwiches). The restaurant regularly hosts group meals, in a special room with a capacity of 18 diners. The restaurant, Turina, has been run by Chef Ángel Aylagas since the end of the 90s.

    To know

    The establishment belongs to NH, the Spanish hotel group, which also includes the 'Collection' brand. This is therefore a boutique hotel which stands out for its architecture, its history and its cultural wealth. Like many other hotels in Madrid, this one caters for a business clientele from Monday to Friday, and for holidaymakers during the weekend. Facilities here include free Wi-Fi in the communal areas and room service, available 24/7. The establishment also has its own gym, which, despite being rather small, offers some attractive features: it's free, stays open all day and has limited capacity. It includes a changing room, two showers, two saunas and several weight-lifting machines. There is a taxi station in front of the hotel. The establishment has secured the loyalty of its guests, many of them coming back to stay at the hotel time and time again. Upon request, families can be provided with a cot and chair, and can even enjoy the benefit of a communicating room (suites or premium rooms). There is also another big gym, the Metropolitan (José Abascal, 46), just a few minutes away on foot: it includes a swimming pool and a spa, which are two features that the gym at the hotel doesn't have. The interior courtyard and garden are worth a visit, and provide the perfect place to enjoy a cold drink or a coffee. This is a true little haven of tranquillity in the midst of Madrid's hustle and bustle.
