Friendly staff, very good location near the museum districts and puerta del sol
Unique Quality: The hotel occupies a historic building dating back to 1920. Recently refurbished and restored to its former glory, in line with the NH Hoteles philosophy, it is within walking distance of the "Art Triangle", formed by the Prado Museum, the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. It is also conveniently located near the Atocha railway station in the heart of the city and overlooks the Botanical Gardens. Attractive shopping areas, good restaurants and elegant nightclubs are an easy stroll from the hotel.
Directions: Prado, parque del retiro & atocha
I stayed here several times in 1964. It was a very convenient location - within sight of the Atocha railroad station.
The first time, I was with my sister and year old niece. We had a sink in the room. I wrote on the postcard to my daughter that the rooms were clean and that we got a brass bedstead type crib. I have pictures of the crib (photos 2 and 3) and from the room.
We were able to feed my niece and put her down to sleep, and then the maid would (for a small tip) watch her while we went up to the restaurant to eat.
Expand the photo to see where I circled the place where our room was.

The rooms are functional, very luminous and comfortable, apart from being elegantly decorated, the large majority of them remodelled.
They have all the details that distinguish our hotel chain: air conditioning, mini-bar, TV (with a broad range of pay per view films), hair dryer, pillow menu, various welcome products ...
The marble bathrooms are characterized by their functionality and elegance.
In 1964, they didn't have any of that - no A/C, no mini-bar, no TV. We didn't miss it because we didn't generally have those things in those days.
Their weekday rates for single or double occupancy in July are 185 € which is currently $241. Weekend rates are a little less.
