AC Los Vascos is close to the University city of Madrid and the A-6 (A Coruña), with easy access to the train station (Nuevos Ministerios), and the IFEMA fairground. The hotel is just 9min away by car from Gran Vía and 12min from Teatro Real and El Palacio de Oriente.
"Three day stay in Madrid. Great location. Wonderful staff. Very clean, easy access to the metro (5 minute walk)."
This is a very comfortable and clean hotel close to the city by metro or bus. The hotel is very modern, reception very friendly and always helpful. It is situated in a pleasant and safe neighborhood. Right beside it there is a wonderful market where you can buy wine for a couple of euros, great ham, cheese, tortilla, and many other goodies. Around the corner there are tapas bars one being Manolo where we ate very well. There's another sandwich place close by which is also very good. The hotel has a coffee bar, free for the guests with coffee, fresh fruit, soft drinks and sweet croissants (bollos.) I truly recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, its extremely helpful staff, and its reasonable price. We will certainly come back soon!
"Good location, great staff"
We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was not the largest but adequate for the two of us. The metro is 5 minutes walk, which is cheap and easy to use. We were advised to go to the next station up so that we could get a train straight into Madrid. There are a good few restaurants near the hotel but you have to go to the back of the hotel to find them, a Chinese and 2 or 3 bistros. There is also an Aldi type supermarket right next door to the hotel. The staff spoke excellent english and were all great, helpful and full of advice on what to do. They even brought me a Hoover at 10pm so I could vacuum pack my luggage !!
"Good value, nice neighborhood"
This hotel is not centrally located, on the other hand, it's roughly 30 minutes from the city center (door to door) so the actual ride is not long, maybe 15 minutes. There are 2 metro station near by, one 300 meters a way, the other is roughly 1 KM, add to that buses, and all place in Madrid are quite accessible. Also the neighborhood is pleasant, near the university and you can find places to eat late at night. The room is nicely decorated with pleasant stuff and self service room service down below, for the price I paid, less than 100 Euro a night, I got a very good deal and it's recommended.
"Ok hotel in a boring location"
The hotel is outside of everything in Madrid, so not a destination in itself. But other than that, rooms are nice and clean, amenities are good. Internet was free in my case so I do not know, perhaps it depends on room you book. Breakfast costs extra, some 12 EUR and probably not worth the price, a limited choice of cold dishes. Unfortunately there is no gym at the hotel. But despite location and missing gym, ok place to spend a night pricewise, as the price was really reasonable (just over 100 EUR) for Madrid.
"Good hotel with room to improve."
I stayed here 4 nights in early December with a friend. Our wifi was free, but I think that was because I had status in the Marriott program. The room was very clean and the daily housekeeping was perfect. Laundry service was fast and well done. Checkout was very pleasant with day staff. Not in the centre, but nice neighbourhood to explore as locals. Tend to agree with some other reviews about staff, I found the evening desk staff not very attentive, for instance we were given a room with the wrong bed, then a card didn't work, etc. More plugs, and one at desk level that doesn't switch off with the lights would be helpful. The hotel is not in the city centre, but we enjoyed the location. We got to experience local culture a little more here, as we took our breakfast for 2 euros at a local counter, and returned there for a nightcap on the way home; nice to spend time in a real local place. The one thing we really didn't like was the bathroom. The shower was impractical, water went all over the bathroom, and for people sharing meant wet towels, slippery floors, etc. A proper shower enclosure would be a big help!
