Here is what I like about Zenit Abeba. It is 5 minutes walk from a metro station, the green line which takes you into Opera and you walk to Puerto Del Sol or change lines and metro there. Once at Puerto Del Sol you are in the heart of Madrid and you cal walk to some wonderful Tapas bars or... More

The hotel is located in a residential district within walking distance (15-20") of the city center and with the metro (Diego de Leon) just steps away. Plenty of bars and cafes in the neighborhood. I LOVED the rooms: clean, comfortable, and spacious. Luxurious bathroom and a very comfy bed. The breakfast is quite good, with all the standard Spanish items... More

We chose the Zenit Abeda as we were visiting family living nearby. It was a pleasant surprise. Our room was clean, decent sized and well equipped. The free Wifi worked well. The staff were friendly and efficient. The location is good. The local area (Salamanca) is full of decent bars and restaurants but is not very touristy. The hotel is... More

Easy on and off of metro location (Diego de Leon). Great modern vibe and feel. Service was excellent. Lots of small neighbourhood patios nearby for tapas and drinks. Excellent grocery store around the corner.

We stayed here at the zenit Abeda for a 3 night city break in Madrid. The hotel was nice and clean and rooms have a modern feel but perhaps just a little too dark with all the black colours and grey shades. The reception staff are very helpful and there is a restaurant onsite but we did not use it.... More

Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip. Room was fine, free internet access, nice bed, decent size and reasonable bathroom. Breakfast was standard continental. Price reasonable. Location is not fantastic, I would not stay here as a tourist but it was convenient for where we were working and priced at an agreeable level.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
