“A comfortable hotel for biz purpose”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I spent two days in this hotel for business. The room was comfortable, silent and clean, the staff kind. Despite the position of the hotel, it's easy to reach city center with taxi at an affordable cost.

This was my first stay at Barceló Castellana Norte and I was impressed by the excellent standard of service, the clean rooms and the restaurant food. Only the decor in the restaurant, which was somewhat stark, detracted from the otherwise very good stay.

Yes, it is outside downtown but near the airport. But is quiet, clean, room spacious, bathroom spacious, bed firm, nice ambience and good buffet breakfast. Looks new but wasn't able to ask. Near a cinema complex with quick snack area nearby. Bus stop, train station walking distance. In short good value for your money.

It is far from downtown, but has in front a bus stop that can take you to the Puerta del Sol, or even a metro station very close. The rooms are spacious and well-rounded breakfast. But bring your own soap and shampoo in the bathroom you just find a gel that according to them it's soap shampoo, all in one.

Pleasant staff, kind and helpful. Comfortable rooms, the beds had nice firm mattresses, showers were spacious. Great breakfast. Geared to business travelers. The area is calm and quiet, and though it is not in a downtown location, the hotel is located very near a stop on the commuter rail system (Cercanias C1) that is halfway between the airport and Chamartin train station, which also goes downtown quickly and in comfort. Alternatively, there is also a light rail or tram line at the same stop poviding a connection to the metro system so getting around is quite easy. Plus there is a bus stop right outside if you want to go straight to the center of Madrid. Around the corner is a small cinema complex with some films in the original language and which also has several chain restaurants which were all full when we walked past. We were on a 3 day visit so it was perfect for us as we wanted to visit the center (half an hour away) a couple of days and took a day trip to Avila leaving from Chamartin.

This is the first time I have stayed at this hotel group.The hotel itself is a fifteen-twenty minute drive from the airport.It is not central but situated in a business area,so good if you want it in that area.Not handy for getting in to the city at night unless you take the nearby train and not much else near by (although there is a good italian resturaunt within two minutes walk).
The hotel itself is modern with all the faclilities needed.I would descibe decor etc as clean and functional as opposed to character and quality.
The bedroom was a good size with everything needed making it a pleasant and comfortable stay
The resturaunt was fine with excellent service from the staff.Had the buffet option one evening which was good value and excellent fresh foods,salads etc.The drink was also good value .
If the location is ok for you,I would recommend it.
Wi fi was free

The hotel was chosen by my business partner for its location to our meeting destination. The hotel was easy to reach from the airport, approximately 15-20 minutes by taxi. I found the hotel to be very modern, clean and well serviced. My room was ‘very’ modern but you get a lot of room and very well furnished not to mention a great sized bed which was very comfortable. My only criticism is that the shower had one of those multipurpose gel dispensers but that’s just a personal hate of mine. Breakfast was very nice and a good selection of Spanish food which I like as they are not pandering to the foreigner like me. We went into the centre of Madrid from the hotel and once again this was an easy trip via taxi. Good hotel and I would have no hesitation to stay again.
