We booked a large room, it was basically a one bedroom suite with a jacuzzi tub. So didn't have the room size issues of others. The location is fabulous. It is an easy walk from the train station, even with luggage, and the neighborhood is fabulous -- right across the street from the Prado. We found a good restaurant a... More

We had a family weekend in Madrid. We were 8 adults and had booked 1 business room and 3 standard rooms for 2 nights. The hotel is not cheap but we were willing to accept that Madrid is an expensive city and that we had to pay a high price for a very good location. What we were not prepared... More

As some of the reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is in walking distance of the Prado and the train station. Very convenient, but the main downside for me was the room's size and lack of English TV channels. This was my first trip to Madrid, so I am not sure if rooms are this small in general. On the plus... More

That was my 2nd exposure to Radisson BLU hotels in April. After a disappointing experience in Brussels, I had higher hopes for their Madrid venue, as Spanish hotels are generally more upbeat in terms of design and athmosphere. The hotel's location is great - virtually across from Museo del Prado and 7 min walk from Plaza Santa Ana teeming with... More

My husband and I stayed here end of April into may. It was our first time in Madrid and it was the perfect base. We hadn't had time to plan our trip thoroughly so was unaware of airport shuttle for 5 euro per person which stops at plaza de cibeles (it's a 5 minute walk on flat, relatively wide street... More

We stayed 3 nights (April 21 to 24,2012) and chose a Business Class Room which was very comfortable and quiet, but overall was pricey at nearly 600 euros. Found the pillows far too soft but informed no choice available which was hugely suprising for a 4* hotel. Breakfast just OK, cooked was available but not made clear, and staff did... More

On the whole this was an OK stay, good but not memorable. The location is a positive - close to the major galleries, a 5 minute walk to Plaza Santa Ana and it's myriad bars and restaurants, and a couple of minutes from the nearest Metro stations (Atocha or Anton Martin). I didn't eat or drink there as there wasn't... More

I selected the Raddison Blu because in studying the map I saw that it was very close to the must-see Prado and a park where tulips were in bloom during Easter week 2012. Our cab-driver did not find it easily so it is important to have the address written down, especially if arriving from the airport.

My husband and I stayed in Radisson Blu Hotel Prado in Madrid between April 15th and April 19th (4 nights). This has not been a good experience, at all.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
