Thyssen museum is in a class of it's own. The unique chronological ordering of art makes innovators stand out amongst there peers. Oh yeah Reina Sofia and Pardo is nothing to sneeze at either. Amazing collection of art in this city!

Catalonia Gran Vía Very good 8 Fantastic location of the hotel, we had a room with a balcony and even with the doors open it wasn't too noisy as we were at the rear of the hotel.

    The Spanish Soul of Art and Entertainment

    Modern Madrid is one of the greenest cities in Europe and the most popular destination in Spain. Whether you want to experience its legendary nightlife or a flamenco show, this is the place to be.

    The renowned Museo del Prado holds one of the world’s finest art collections with iconic paintings by El Greco, Velázquez and Goya. For more modern touch, the Museo Reina Sofia houses Picasso’s and Dali’s most respected works.

    Start your evening at Puerta del Sol, one of the city’s busiest spots. Make some room in your stomach for great tapas and sangria in La Latina district, south of the city’s most famous plaza, Plaza Mayor.

    Real Madrid plays at Santiago Bernabeu and Atlético Madrid competes at Vicente Calderón Stadium, two opportunities that no sports fan will want to miss. The popular Salamanca district is a great place to look for boutique gifts and unique shops.

    Thanks to great public transportation system, getting to the city centre from Madrid Barajas International Airport is very easy. Whether you’re looking for luxury hotels, budget hostels or comfy apartments, Booking.com has a perfect place for your Madrid holiday.

    • This place is real (secret) treasure and starting point to discover & explore the glorious city Madrid. Samantha is a great and inspiring host and guide if needed that delivers an amazing relaxing atmosphere and time that you cannot describe unless you experience it your self. After a long day sitting on one of your 2 private terraces zipping your drink when the sunsets.. It beats as far as i know all the 5 star hotels in town, with an awsome tasty breakfast... Keep up the good work.

    • Spent one night there during a stopover in Madrid. Hotel is very close to metro line (10 minutes to Airport & 15 minutes to city centre) and perfect for this purpose as metros operate quite late in the night in Madrid. Also there is a free shuttle to the airport. Hotel room was very nice & clean and the staff gave us super tips for an evening in the town.

    • Clean, big rooms. WiFi works good. Very good location: - 50 meters away from Madrid Metro station - across the street is Atocha - main Madrid railway station, covenient to travel to Toledo, RosaVillage outlet or just any place in Spain - 100 meters to Reino Sofia museum - 10 minutes walk to Prado Museum and Retiro park - 3 metro stations to Puerto del Sol, Gran Via and city center - 50 minutes to get to airport or IFEMA centre by metro (but with 2 line changes)

    • Excellent location. Perfect beginning of 20th century building, very atExcellent location. Very atmospheric building, especially stair and the entrance door (if you like things like that). Rather close to Atocha Railway station (connections to other Spain towns as well as the cheapest way to Madrid airport). Rather clean.hmospheric.

    • This hotel was a perfect option for our group of friends flying to Madrid and travelling further to Spain the next day. The hotel has big rooms for 3 or 4 people which was very convenient for us. Transfer from/to airport is free. Metro station to get to the city cinter is close to the hotel. Breakfast is very good. The hotel itself is modern and comfortable. Just everything you really need for a short stay and even more.
