“Can't beat the location, value, & quality of this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Back again at the AC Hotel in Madrid. Regular stop for me here when on business. For the area I work in you cannot beat the location and value of this hotel. Great business rooms, small, but functional gym on site, decent food in the resturant for late night meals and free wifi in the lobby!! Marriott points as a bonus.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I just got back from spending a few days at the AC Hotel Avenida de América over New Years with family. For the price that we paid (which I felt was a bargain), its contemporary and chic décor and the friendly staff, I was really pleasantly surprised.
There are a few down points though. If you don’t get a room that includes breakfast, it’s an extra 16€ per person, per day. The rooms have thin walls, so you’re able to hear quite a bit from your neighbours. The AC Avenida de América is also a little out of central Madrid (which it would then be best for you use to Metro to get to)….. but the Metro station is close by, so it works out quite well if you don’t want to be in the middle of all the hustle and bustle.
But overall, I really enjoyed it here and I think it’s a good choice for your stay in beautiful Madrid!

We stayed in 4 AC Marriotts on 12 day trip over xmas. This was the only one we had issues. No computer or business center. Rooms have paper walls so beware that sleep could be a issue. We had problem with the room rate. Told one rate when we checked in, got a 20 euro more rate on checkout. Despite long argument, no help from manager. Would never tay here again.

Stayed here 5 nights on a business trip. I appreciated that I was able to check-in early (around 10:00 am) when my overnight flight came in. I thought I would have to store my luggage and wait until later in the day. Instead, I was able to wash up and rest a moment before going out to explore the city.

The room was clean, but small. The "queen bed" was two twins pushed together, each individually made up with white sheets. The free minibar was an unexpected and nice perk (stocked with bottled water, sparkling water, coca-cola, and fruit sodas). The room was warm and felt a little stuffy. The window opens, but even with a window facing the side street on the 4th floor, I found the city noise and lights too much for this suburban girl. Also, as others have mentioned, the internet in rooms is not free, but it is available in the dining area free. A lot of people congregate there, so it is very slow.

Easy access to the highway headed toward the airport and businesses. A short walk to the Avenida de America Metro Stop. It's a big station, though, be sure you exit the metro at the the same corner you entered, or you may be walking around the neighborhoods for a long time.

Room Tip: Ask for a side-facing room if one for available for a quieter stay.

This hotel is near to subway station Avenue America (5 minute walk) so it's a good location for a city trip. It takes you about 15 minutes to go to the Center/Sol/museum area from here. It's a clean hotel with large rooms, comfortable beds and very nice breakfast. I would definately go here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a recent business trip. As a number of other reviewers have noted, the hotel is clean, modern and well-provided with modern amenities. The bar area is relaxed and pleasant, with attentive waiter service by the hotel staff.

My room was a little on the small side (facing the back of the hotel), but very clean and equipped with fully functioning air-conditioning. Breakfast was additional (16.50 Euro) and would be considered a little expensive for holiday or tourists, but for a business trip it was very good (considering the limited options nearby).

As one other reviewer noted, the hotel isn't in the best area for sight-seeing or bars/restaurants for evening meals, but if you want a modern clean-hotel that is well-serviced by the excellent metro system, this is a good choice. If you want to be in the centre, look for somewhere near the Gran Via (or Plaza de Espana).

Overall, a good choice for business and easy access from the airport via the Metro, but if you want to see more of Madrid, it might be better to choose a more central hotel.

Room Tip: If you arrive by plane, choose the metro service and catch line 8 in the direction of Nuevo Minister...

We stayed at this hotel using Marriot rewards and it was quite a nice place considering it did not cost much and we were offered a little suite. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood but has access to 2 differnet metro lines so it was easy to get around.
The rooms are very generous and kept in excellent conditions. The lobby has been refreshed so it looks up to date althought the exterior looks dated. Hotel offers free Wifi in the lobby but not in the room so we just hang out in the lounge when we need to use the Ipad.
It was an enjoyable stay there and we found good restaurants and breakfast bars within a few minute walk.

Room Tip: I think most rooms are quite spacious.
