    Location 4.97 /10

    The hotel enjoys a prime location, only a stone's throw from Atocha train station, opposite the Botanical Museum and only a 5-minute walk from the Prado Museum. Other sites of the city you shouldn't miss include the Reina Sofia Museum, the Caixa Forum, the Retiro, the Puerta del Sol, the Gran Via and the Royal Palace, all of which can be reached on foot from the hotel. The neighbourhood is lively and crammed with restaurants, cafés, and all sorts of shops. The building next to the hotel houses the famous Kapital nightclub, with seven floors dedicated to partying. The nearest underground station is Atocha (line 1), only 50 metres away. In front of the hotel, there is a bus stop from where you can catch a ride to almost anywhere in the city. Thanks to the hotel's close proximity to Atocha station, you'll enjoy easy access to various parts of the city (by bus or by suburban train) or the country (by regional train or TGV high-speed train). The hotel is approximately 10 mi from Barajas airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The establishment has a total of 214 guest rooms, 180 of which feature in the standard category. The rest come as superior rooms, premium rooms and there is one junior suite. The guest rooms feature two single beds or one double bed (1.50 m) arranged in a pleasant setting decorated in earthy, brown and green tones. They also feature a desk, a (free) safe, a mini-bar, a selection of pillows and even an ironing board (available for free upon request). The bathroom and the toilet are separate. In the former you'll find some hospitality products (by the Aguas de la Tierra brand) and a hair-dryer. The main difference between the standard and premium rooms resides in the view they afford, and some extra features in the latter category, such as the valet and a wider selection of hospitality products.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The building was built in the 20s and was designed by architect Modesto López Otero, the creator of the 1812 Constitution Monument in Cadiz and the Gran Via hotel in Madrid (now known as the Senator Gran Via hotel). Its neo-classical style is remarkable both for its elegance and its symmetry. It's surrounded by a series of flags which you can see from the Plaza de Carlos V, including from Atocha station. The establishment boasts modern decor that is frequently renovated; the latest renovation was carried out in 2004. The hotel has eight floors that all follow the same layout, with the exception of the ground floor and the first floor. The ground floor houses the entrance hall and the reception area, along with a couple of relaxation areas and a café. The first floor includes the restaurant and the conference rooms. As for the guest rooms, these are divided across the remaining six floors. Additionally, there are five rooms reserved for events, the biggest of which has a capacity of 150.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The establishment has only one restaurant, which serves a buffet breakfast. Lunch and dinner are served à la carte, but this service is reserved for groups that have booked in advance. The buffet breakfast includes, among other treats, fruit juice, fruit, pastries, cereal, cold cuts and hot dishes. What a great start to the day! The restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine for an average price of £18 per person. The dining room is spacious and there is plenty of room in between tables to allow for some privacy. Moreover, the place is excellently lit, thanks to the room's many windows, from which you will be able to admire the splendid views of Atocha street and Plaza de Carlos V. Let's not forget the café though, which is open from 11:00am to 11:30pm and serves beverages, hot drinks and cocktails. Furthermore, room service is available until 11:30pm.

    To know

    The building was built as a luxury hotel and used to attract many celebrities from the literary world. The establishment closed towards the end of the 70s, and remained that way until the NH hotel group bought and entirely renovated it some 20 years later. In the meantime, McDonalds had acquired the corner of the building and a significant portion of the ground floor to open one of its restaurants. The rest of the building belongs to the hotel. The façade, the interior staircase and some of the windows looking out on the courtyards date from the original construction. Like many other hotels in Madrid, from Monday to Friday, the establishment mainly caters for a business clientele, whereas during the weekend, the clientele is primarily made up of holidaymakers. Wi-Fi access is free in the communal areas but you have to pay for this amenity in your room, which will cost you approximately £5 an hour. The establishment has its own car park with 65 spaces: the rate varies from £3.50 per hour to £18 per day.
