Had been two nights in Madrid, and knowing few hotels in Madrid, if you like to be close to the centre but not in it, this is a good place. Business style hotel, clean and average rooms, bathroom is spacious and with hairdryer. Good breakfast and lunch options are very nice too; the only but, restaurant area is not big... More

We stayed at the Rafaelhoteles Atocha with a tour group in late Oct. The rooms were clean and attractive with an average sized bath, but lack of counter space in the bathroom was inconvenient. The breakfast buffet was very good, with the usual variety of tasty items. We had no computer device except a Kindle, which we couldn't download in... More

Stayed at this hotel for two days, post cruise from Barcelona. Hotel is just right behind the Atocha train station, about 10 minutes walk, it is also very close walk to the Prado Museum and Sofia Museo. Hotel is modern, clean and had ornate railings. We were given Rm 364, which was perfect. It was facing the back, nice and... More

We stayed at Rafael Hotel Madrid for 3 nights before joining a Trafalgar Tour to visit the south of Spain. The fact that the hotel was very close to the Atocha Train Station and also walking distance to the Reina Sofia Modern Museum ( where Picasso Guernica is located ) and Prado Museum was a bonus. In fact from this... More

Hotel is located at the back of Atocha Train station in a quiet neighborhood. 10 minutes walk to Atocha Train station, 20 minutes walk to Retiro Park and Prado Museums. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious. It was not busy when we stayed there for 2 nights. Breakfast buffet was good and dinners were delicious with excellent service.... More

Excellent rooms and bathrooms in this well placed hotel, 10 mins walk from the Santa Justa railway station. Very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast spread looked good (but we opted out from that). There are plenty of restaurants nearby, including a good Italian one (Gino's) and a Chinese one for those who want a break from tapas and paellla!

Stayed 2 nights as part of a tour. Hotel is located behind Atocha station. Not ideal if, like me, you prefer to be close to the sights. Dining room more like a cafe with plastic folding chairs. We were on a dinner, bed & breakfast deal but the food was poor quality and the wine which accompanied the meal unpalatable.... More

The rooms are spacious and adequate. Facial soap provided with dispenser on the wall for shampoo but ours was broken. The air conditioning does not cool rapidly enough for comfort. There's not much in the way of surrounding restaurants or shops without a long walk.

Good relation between quality and price and near the museums. The reception staff could be a little bit helpful, breakfast was good. If you are looking for a hotel that serves meals look elsewere. Its a good place to stay if you want bed and breakfast.

The hotel is average, rooms alittle small , but clean. The issue I had with this hotel was the reception desk service. After I left the hotel I realised I left a bag in my room of shopping I had purchased. Over 200 euros worth. So our tour guide rang them to notify them to place it somewhere safe. At... More
