"Small hotel near Parque de El Retiro"
A small (boutique') hotel that is in easy walking distance to Parque de El Retiro. So while not in Centro Madrid a very convenient location. The rooms were nice but we had a strange room on the top floor. No windows, only sky lights. We didn't mind as we do not spend much time in the room except to sleep. It was actually very quiet and the sky light shutters could be opened and closed by remote control. A small bar that you press a button on the table when you want service as the barman usually was in the restaurant below. We did not try the restaurant as there were many restaurants in the area and inexpensive breakfast places nearby (much cheaper than the hotel breakfast buffet). All in all it was clean and nice and I would stay there again for the right price.
"An enjoyable stay"
Lovely location on a quiet street but still in the centre. Plenty of restaurants around. Polite and helpful staff and breakfast to good standard. There's parking at the hotel too which is a plus. Overall a great stay, would recommend to anyone.
"Great boutique hotel in Madrid "
Located in the Posh Salamanca district, AC recoletos is well situated and modern boutique hotel. The rooms are contemporary and well kept with a fantastic morning breakfast buffet. When in madrid do not hesitate to consider Recoletos. Tip, use their cab service to get to the airport and try to stay in the 4th floor.
"Okay at best"
I was recently in Madrid for two days leisure and two days business. This hotel covered my business time. Here's what I liked: - Location. It's near downtown, and really close to everything. - Modern. They've re-designed the rooms. They're a bit funky. - Clean. And toiletries of all types. We're talking dental kits, slippers, etc.. Here's what I didn't like: - It's loud. The walls are paper thin. I could hear the bar that was more than a room away. I could hear my neighbour snoring. In the morning, they were moving stuff in the hallways at 6am, and I could hear them like they were next to me. Given that I generally stay in a hotel to sleep, if it fails here (which it did), it's difficult for it to get a positive review (which it didn't). - It's expensive. The room is "okay" size, but smaller than what I had outside of downtown and at more than twice the price. Not worth it. I'd gladly trade off a bunch of the toiletries for a lower price. - Breakfast is expensive. Many places to eat nearby. You'll get better deals there. Maybe I'm just cheap, but if in Madrid again, I'd take the hotel that was a bit further away (but next to Metro) rather than stay here, and save my money instead. This one did nothing for me, and had nothing memorable about it.
"In a nice area, very nice staff, and quiet"
In a quiet part of the upscale Salamanca district, the hotel is situated on a street with several nice restaurants, and two blocks from some of the nicest ones in town. Easy access to the Metro, which is cheap and trains come every 2 minutes or so, so very convenient. Quiet rooms, windows you can open, very comfortable in November for us. Bathroom is separated by glass painted wall from room, so if you are with someone, visual but not audio privacy when using it. Bar provides nice drinks but very expensive relative to prices anywhere else. Very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast expensive so we went to two nice breakfast places within a 1 to 2 minute walk (Santa Gloria and Mallorca). No coffee or tea in room. Great for business travel.
