We stayed for 3 nights between November 25-27 2013. Friendly welcome, good location 200 metres from the lovely Retiro Park. We arrived into Madrid late at night so took a cab direct to the hotel, this cost €45. Worth it, to avoid sussing out the bus and rail network at that time of night. Hotel is 800 metres from Atocha Station, you can't see or hear the station. We had Room 232, which is at the back of the hotel. No view, but absolutely quiet. Average sized room, so don't expect a Presidential Suite, American cousins! Good clean room and bathroom, although 2 single beds was a disappointment, but then this was a last-minute budget break. Aircon worked fine. Blackout curtains. From the bus stop just outside the hotel, take the No. 14 to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where Real Madrid play. Take the stadium tour, 20 euros. Fantastic! Take the No. 32 from the hotel to a stop named Benavida in order to get you to Plaza Mayor. Each ride costs €1.50, seemingly regardless of how many stops you are on board for. Well worth it. Bar shut at 11.30pm, but Madrid is coming to life then, so we found a bar across the road for a drink. Lifts were fine, and came swiftly each time. The reception staff were extremely helpful, spoke good English and gave us lots of info on buses and trains. I read the comments of some who have stayed here and was wondering what we would find, and couldn't understand why they had written their stuff. There are posher (and more expensive) places to stay, but we would definitely stay here again. Good value.
