    Average Hotel

    by

    We stayed for three nights at Rafaelhoteles and we found it was clean, fairly good service, reasonable buffet breakfast, close to Atocha station and walking distance to Puerta del Sol. If you don’t want to walk to the centre of Madrid, Taxi rank is just outside and there are waiting for customer from 6am.

    Walking at night to the hotel we had to walk fast, as from our experience there are vagabonds hanging around the street. Few of them follow us and one of them asked me for a cigarette so I gave him one. If you don’t know Kung Fu I wouldn’t recommend walking at night, especially the elderly and female gender, catch a taxi.

    We paid $224 AUD per night including buffet breakfast.

    Directions: Close to Atocha Station

    Modern 3/4 star hotel.

    Very comfortable rooms with good facilities (minibar stocked well and not too expensive, tv, good bathroom, quiet and air conditioned).

    Breakfast was extra on the deal I took and cost about €10, a little expensive but really excellent - great selection of fresh fruit (pineapple, melon etc), meats and cheeses, cooked breakfast, wide selection of breads, cakes and continental type breakfast as well. All on a help yourself buffet. Definately worth it if you've got a busy day ahead.

    Other facilities include:
    A friendly bar where they serve delicious toast almonds (complimentary) with your drink.
    A moderate to high priced resturant (depending on what you eat), there speciality was different varieties of Risoto.
    Free internet access for 15 minutes a day.
    Small gym facility (about 4 machines).
    As a four star hotel there were lots of conference facilities as well, but of no interest to me!

    Unique Quality: The resturant served tapas as you wait for your meal. On one occasion they had warm figs wraped in ham. Absolutely delicious!

    More on location:

    Two Metros are close by, one is the Atocha, about 10 minute walk, but then you have to get through Atocha Station as well and there is another Metro also about 10 minutes away - Palos de la Frontera on line 3. This can take you to Sol, Callao, Plaza de Espana to name a few.

    It's a good location for things to do near Atocha, but for the other parts of the city it isn't ideal. Also the location isn't so good for finding places to eat nearby or in the evening. The next time I go to Madrid I think I'd prefer to be in a hotel closer to Plaza Mayor or Sol.

    But still it is definately a good choice if you can get a good deal. Check out expedia and the regular internet hotel sites.

    Directions: You are 10 minutes from the Atocha Station (train &metro). The Atocha area is the place to go for the Reina Sofia Museum and the Botanical Gardens. A bit further for the Prado Mile, although for some it may be too far!

More about Rafaelhoteles Atocha

Puerta del Sol

by fachd

From Rafaelhoteles Atocha, VT members Santi (Redang) took us for a walk to Puerta del Sol. It was a nice walk. We passed the Atocha station, Centro Reina Sofia National Museum, Caixa Forum Madrid Cultural Centre, Botanical Garden, and Prado Museum. Before we got to Sol we decided to have a Tapas lunch, then we continued on.

When we arrived the first thing I saw of Puerta del Sol was the statue of Carlos III, the hustle and bustle, the commuters running toward Sol metro station, the Japanese tourist following the tour director carrying a flag, red roofless tourist bus, the blind busker with Labrador dog, police patrolling on foot. It was a busy sight. The ambiences were definitely electrifying.

We are now standing in the heart of Madrid historic square of Puerta del Sol. It is the starting point for us as tourist to take photos of the bustling activities. In Sol you will find many great shops, restaurant, café, hotels, and the twenty ton statue Bear eating strawberry fruit (Madrono), Kilometre Zero. You will see the old 18th century Post Office with the clock tower. I’ve heard from the grapevine at New Year the Madrid people consume 12 grapes for 12 wishes whilst listening to the countdown from the clock bell. They have to consume one grape per second, luckily for the Madrilènes it’s not orange they have to consume.

The Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor and Royal Theatre are close walking distance from Puerta del Sol square.

In May 2nd and 3rd 1808 the famous uprising against the French happened in the square when Madrid’s people fought against Napoleon soldiers and many died. Today protesters are still using the square to rallies and protests against violence and war.
