I am currently checked in at this hotel. The room is great. It has cozy beds and pillows, which I find important in a hotel, not so big but complete with toilet and bath amenities, a long desk, and all the basic necessities that a traveler would need. The rooms are really clean and spacious compared to other hotels here... More

We spent 3 nights there this month--1 before and 2 after our scheduled tour. The hotel was definitely close (10 min level walk) to the train station which made it easy to catch our departing train out of Madrid. We walked twice to the city center, but it is a good 30 min walk so you may want to consider... More

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

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!
