The hotel is situated in the Salamanca district and as well as being conveniently close to shops, restaurants and a metro station is within walking distance of the beautiful Retiro Park. The hotel itself is modern in appearance but traditional in attitude with brilliant staff who truly care about service and take pride in looking after their guests. I have...

An excellent hotel with very clean rooms, comfortable beds and an easy to access bathroom. I had asked for a handicap room which I received. The bath room had a raised toilet with grab bars, emergency pull cord and a walk-in shower. Some people complained that without a shower curtain water went everywhere. The entire floor is tiled allowing the...

Modern and very nice. Super friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are a little small and you kind of feel like you're on a tight quarters ship, but they're nice. Fitness center is small but functional. The bar and restaurant area is very nice. Over all two thumbs up!

Nice hotel in a great neighborhood location. Easy walk to the metro red line for a quick trip into the center of town and access to many sites. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was inexpensive and good food. Nice rooms and amenities. I would stay here again.

Depends what you are looking for. A nice hotel,notluxuary but great personnel and nice room. The breakfast is top for a Spainish hotel. Location is a bit outside main center but it fitted me as my customer was around the corner.

It was my first time staying in a Novotel hotel. I have always heard great reviews of this popular chain hotel and I really did not know what to expect from my first visit. Despite seeing some average to mediocre reviews of this particular Madrid branch, I would honestly say my stay was quite pleasant and comfortable. Because of the...

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.
