“Left much to be desired.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The best part of this hotel is it's location to the train/bus station. Outside of that, it is far outside of the heart of Madrid's shopping and sightseeing spots (IMHO). Breakfast was mediocre, the room was mediocre (with poor lighting)...the toilet paper in the bathroom almost cut my private parts, it was so rough! In addition, the walls are EXTREMELY thin. I could hear people arguing, coughing, engaging in...y'know. I also stayed at a Melia elsewhere, and I don't understand how the two establishments can both be considered 4-star...the quality is worlds apart! There's no gym, no swimming pool, not even free Wi-Fi! Needless to say, I won't return here.

Room Tip: It's a crap shoot. If your floor mates are loud, you're going to have some trouble getting a...

Two things to cheer on this trip to the Agumar - the price and the location. I got a deal of around €40/night for a single room, which was not to be sneezed at, especially in Madrid.

I wanted to stay in Madrid but take a trip to Toledo and this hotel allowed me to do that very easily. It's 10 minutes on foot to Atocha train station/metro, so handy for Saturday's big day trip and spinning in to all the sights too.

The décor is a bit 1970s, to say the least and the walls are thinnish, but still, it was a very good deal for what I paid. And it backs on to the Retiro gardens and is very handy for the "golden triangle" of museums, so if you want a nicely situated hotel that's not in the middle of Madrid nightlife action but very handy to the cultural spots, I really would recommend the Agumar.

Room Tip: The quietest rooms seem to be round the back.

Situated 10 mins. from The Atocha Rail Station close to the Metro and Buses and
20 mins. from Plaza Santa Ana. This is what keeps this place open.
1970s decor, and front of house staff were around long before that!!
A combination of business and family holiday stayers. Rooms are perfectly OK.
Did not eat there. They did a good deal for me.online.
I would stay again.

The primary reason for selecting this hotel is its proximity (10 minute walk) to Atocha train station where you can take the Airport Bus to Barajas airport or catch a train for a day trip to Segovia, Toledo, etc. The hotel also has convenient access to the metro to reach any point in Madrid. The hotel is also within walking distance to the Retiro Park, Prado and Reina Sofía museums. A grocery store is located within a 5 minute walk. The hotel is average quality with clean rooms (although not sound proofed) and a restaurant. Amenities include mini fridge and hair dryer. The hotel seemed to cater to many tour groups.

We went to Madrid for a citytrip and booked our room through internet. Comfortable room. No street noise but the inside walls were a bit thin. Approximately 2 blocks from the Atocha trainstation, metro and airportshuttle stop. The city center, Prado etc. is at a walking distance approx. 500 meters. Excellent breakfast was included in our special room package rate. Staff was very helpful, polite and spoke excellent English. There is a small grocery nearby. Would stay here again. We arrived about 10.30 in the morning and the room was already available. Only minor is that you have to pay for a wifi connection and that there is no alarm clock in room

Room Tip: If it possible ask for a room at the rear even as the isolation on the street side is sufficient.

More a good three star hotel, it is located on a busy main road. The night life in Madrid is famous so a room at rear is good. Bathroom lighting is poor - important to us as we had to to be dressing carefully for several parties. Staff very helpful. Our deal included fee wifi throughout stay but we had or renew code every day, always at an awkward time.. Just a niggle I suppose. Within the parameters, it deserves a good 5 stars.

Room Tip: 7th floor (top storey) at rear.

The hotel is 10 min walk from Atocha train station which you can acess by airport shuttle bus. The room is nice and clean. Breakfast buffet is fair, there may be busy because of its poppular for tour groups. However, Internet is not free, 6euro per day.
