“Great location, lovely hotel.”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This was our first visit to an AC hotel and from the moment we walked in, we loved it. We checked in and went up to our room -- and amazingly enough there was a glassed in shower kinda' in the middle of the room. This was a design first for me however it was new, modern and fun.

We didn't eat dinner at the hotel however each day they had a wonderful breakfast buffet that would satisfy anyone. They had everything you'd want, including some delicious Iberico ham. The staff are all helpful, especially when recommending places to go and see in Madrid.

This hotel is centrally located and between the Madrid subway and their excellent bus service we roamed the city and museums with ease. The Prado isn't far away -- and many, many great restaurants are in the area. There are several options for buying all day tickets on the subway and all of the signs are in English, so it's very easy. They also have a wonderful city-tour bus company that allowed on-off stops around the city on two routes. Great value and the best way to beat Madrid traffic.

Location, location, location.... This hotel is in the middle of the action, just a block from "Puerta de Alcala" and "Parque el Retiro" which are fantastic places, also there is a lot of restaurants near by for you to eat with great prices. Madrid is a magic city and in this Hotel the experience is even better.

This hotel was a real winner - it has a great location and the design is superb with stylish rooms including wood floors and relaxing design. The staff was very professional and friendly. My bathroom had a shower and a separate bath. The hotel is small and very cool.

I was here for 3 nights over New Years. The location is a posh neighbourhood, Salamanca, and is near El Prado and the Thyssen museums, close to Grand Via and close to a subway, near good restaurants and on a quiet street.

The breakfast option with the room is worth it and allows a la carte orders in addition to the buffet. The gym is tiny.

This hotel is cute on the outside and very updated on the inside. The staff were outstanding, providing prompt service and lots of helpful tips for Madrid. The location is great for the Prado and the other museums in the museum quarter, and the hotel is less than a ten minute walk from a metro stop.

I had the pleasure of staying at the AC Hotel Recoletos in Madrid for five nights during the end of October. I used my Marriott reward points for the stay and was given a room on the 5th floor. It was very quiet in the hotel and the skylights with the window shades made the room very dark for sleeping, which was great help in dealing with my jet lag. The morning I arrived, a room was ready for me by 11:30. The location is in a quieter part of Madrid, I spoke to people during my trip who stayed in more of the heart of the tourist area, and they said it was very noisy at night, so Recoletos was definitely a good choice. A five minute walk to the metro station, which is an excellent way to get around Madrid. I recommend the Mallorca food shop/restaurant which is located a block away for some good food, especially if you don't want to have to wait until 10 pm for dinner.

This hotel was so easy to get to via Metro from Airport. I would recommend it to all. It was very clean and the staff was SO helpful. The location was about 15 walking distance to the centre of Madrid. There are lots of places to eat and drink 2 mins from the hotel. We never ate or drank in the hotel so can't tell you anything about that but small reastaurant on the corner from hotel was a great stop from breakfast.

Room Tip: When we checked in our room was not ready so we opted to wait. They held our bags and we went for a...

This was a nice hotel right in the heart of the golden street and walking distance to gran via. Rooms were of a high quality, fit for a 4 star property. The front desk were very attentive to our needs and made sure that we were well looked after. Spacious toilets and comfortable bedding.
