Located near the Paseo de la Castellana, and most of the most famous museums in Madrid, and Atoche railway station, this hotel has small rooms but good and clean enough to spend one night. Desk people is cool.

The front desk staff was helpful and charming, although we were testing the limits of one another's language abilities at some points. It turned out my Spanish capabilities were greater than their English on some occasions, probably true of most of Madrid. There is wi-fi, and a desk to work on. I have to say, the staff was quite helpful... More

Booking a hotel i wasn´t waiting something extra. But Mexico was more than i expected! It is more than 3 stars! It is incredible for visiting Madrid, it is near the museum zone (caixa forum is just the next to the hotel!!!). Retiro is near and it takes you maybe 10 minutes to come to Plaza Mayor, Everything is very... More

Facility is in need of a major upgrade. I went because I specifically wanted a hotel but was then sent to a nearby apartment, negating any benefit of staying in a hotel. There was no wifi in the apartment, no shampoo, and no mattress pad. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Location near Atocha station and Prado was convenient.

Definitely the worst hotel/hostel during my entire visit to Spain. Staff was annoyingly grim and unfriendly, room in desperate need of refurbishment, lacked fridge, hairdryer, toiletry (but a tiny soap), A/C was only switched on after request and was switched off sometime during the night and remained switched off during most off the day, even though Madrid was going through...

Paid 70 euros plus 15 for the very convenient parking under the hotel. The location sold it to us and it was perfect, a short walk to the 3 art museams. It is also convenient for walking into the historical centre and tapas bars. The staff at the front desk spoke English and were helpful. There was wireless internet in... More

Mexico is very convenient to El Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia, and Thyssen art museums, the Botanical Garden, and the Atocha train station. The yellow airport bus also makes an easy connection at the train station. Mexico was featured in the MTV travel guide a few years ago. We stayed two nights in early April to visit the museums after... More

The hotel has a good location close to the Prado, train station, botanical gardens and park. We walked to all the major sites without any issues. The rooms are small and basic but fine if you just want a place to sleep. The staff had excellent english and were helpful when asked for information. The use of the internet was... More

In the first place, I am confused by one of the other reviews for this hotel. The one I am referring to is in Madrid, near the Prado. One other review mentions a beach, a pool, a restaurant and an apartment, none of which the Hotel Mexico in Madrid has. As to my thoughts on the place, it is in... More

I stayed here in August 2000. It is a very clean and quiet hotel on a small street. The decor of the room was lovely, and there was almost no noise at all. The staff on the reception desk were extremely kind and helpful in providing us with the city information we required. When I return to Madrid I will... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
