Clean rooms, not many amenities. No pool!? Taxi rides will be about 10 euro to and from most places you'd want to visit. Local eateries a few blocks away are hit or miss. Baths are comfortable with good layout.

Good location (Reina Sofia Museum and Retiro parc on foot), excellent food (even four types of cake for breakfast), wifi free available for seven days (for free, in rooms), clean and big rooms (with toothbrushes for guest). No complains.

Rafaelhoteles Atocha is a favorite hotel for coach tours because it is a bit out of the city center, and there is space enough to park more than one coach. Anyone checking in during tourist season would do well to check-in earlier in the day. By the time we joined the first day of our tour at 4 pm, the... More

Don t expect the "modern" room mentionned on the website when you book a standard room. The pictures are just wrong! I got a room which was modern...in the 80s but certainly not in 2014. They just lie and make you believe that what you get is what you see. Wrong. Totally wrong. I call this a rip off and... More

I stayed in this hotel for the weekend. The rooms are very clean and cosy. Samsung TV. The breakfast and the coffees/juices are very delicious. Surprisingly very quiet. From the station an easy walk of max 15min.

We stayed 4 nights in the hotel and found the facilities to be lacking. It is not a new hotel and the housekeeping does not keep the place clean. There is a layer of dust on the sidetables. If you are considering taking a triple room, my advise is to use another hotel. The room is merely a standard room... More
