We received a warm welcome when we arrived at the hotel. The receptionist spoke fantastic English despite us speaking Spanish to him in the first instance. We had asked for a room on the 7th floor, which we were given. Anyone contemplating paying extra for a private terrace, don't, simply ask for a room on the 7th floor. The lift... More

The hotel is very conveniently located being close to the railway station and also the centre of the old city of Madrid. The actual street is a bit shabby but the hotel itself is clean and well maintained, the staff very welcoming and helpful. We did not use the restaurant so cannot comment. Our room had a view into a... More

We stayed at the Catalonia Atocha for 2 nights when in Madrid. The front desk personnel were helpful - they printed museum passes for us the night before our reservation. There are lots of sight to see within walking distance. Also, there's a taxi stand right outside the hotel, so it wasn't hard to grab a cab when we headed... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for using your valuable time in writing this nice review. And thank you for mentioning a new advantage to our potential guests: the new taxi station right in front of the hotel. It will allow our guests to take a taxi to the airport or any other destination in 20 seconds, the time they... More

The room I got was very comfortable, however the one next to me was really tiny so I can say I was lucky (keep this in mind when checking in). The first thing I had an inside view (not a nice view but really quiet) and at night it was 100% dark. However the lightning system in the room was... More

Dear guest, We are very happy to know that, despite you give us only 3 over 5, you had a nice stay in the hotel. Regarding the size of your room you weren't so lucky. The room next door, the tiny one you saw, it is a single room. And single rooms are a bit smaller. We absolutely agree with... More

Stayed here two nights in Madrid, and we really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Catalonia Atocha. First, I'll start by agreeing with most of the other reviewers that it really is in a fantastic location. Walking distance the Golden Triangle of museums, downtown shopping in Puerta Del Sol, and other sights in Madrid (although we did take a couple taxis... More

Dear guest, We really appreciate the time you used to share your impressions of the hotel with other users of the web site.

For the same price you paid in the bar next to the hotel you will... More

We stayed at this hotel believing it would be good for at least the location and that certainly is the case as it was within walking distance of most iconic places such as the Palacio Real and the Prado. The rooms were very spacious and luxurious with very comfortable beds and the towels changed every day. The slight downside was... More

Dear guest, It is always great news to receive a review like yours. We do not find the appropriate words to express our gratitude, especially for those words referring our service. We try to do our best every day, and it is nice when we see that our guests appreciate that. Once again, thank you. Best regards from Madrid. More

This hotel was very centrally located. We arrived early for check in however our room was made available in the short time it took for us to check in and ask for some local tourist information. The staff were keen to help which was refreshing. Our room was very clean and although overlooking a busy main road it was quiet... More

Great service, decent room size and good value for money. Added bonus was the welcome drink included as we had booked through their website. Good location, but a decent walking distance to the main sights as the Madrid metro is virtually useless - but this is not their fault. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Dear guest, We are very glad you enjoyed the hotel that much. By the way, we are a bit surprised you weren't satisfied by the subway service in Madrid. The Madrid subway is considered to be one of the 10 best subway networks in the world. And it is the fastest way to move around the city, specially if you... More

This is a bright and comfortable hotel that is well positioned.

Place is very impersonal and you notice it right when you walk in. Asking for an iron literally took 3 calls/1 hour and the end result was no iron.

Dear guest, We are very sorry the hotel did not fulfilled your expectations. It is quite obvious you were expecting something absolutely different. No complaints, unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the tastes of everyone.
