AC Recoletos is located between Calle Serrano and Paseo de Recoletos, near the Plaza de Cibeles, the Retiro park, the museums of Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza, with excellent connections to the subway stations: Retiro, Colon and Banco de España.
We stayed at the AC Hotel Ricoletos for 3 nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the public area was attractive. The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, but the most important feature of the Hotel was the LOCATION! We were close to everything and walking distance to the Prado. The area has lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. One of the major parks was a short walk away - Madrid is known for their parks and fountains. The architecture in the area was stunning - not unlike Paris. When returning to Madrid, we will stay here again.
The hotel is in a great location. Very close to Retiro Park and Puerto de Alcala. We walked everywhere but there is a Metro one block over as well. The hotel is modern and clean. The rooms were adequate, not luxurious but fine. Breakfast was included and that was more than enough for 2 meals.
"Nice hotel in a great location"
The hotel is very well maintained with nice rooms and great wifi. It is located on a quiet street, but only a few minutes walk to great restaurants such as those near Puerta de Alcala. The Metro and commuter train station are about 10 minutes away. I was very pleased with the experience.
Our room was not ready when we arrived so we went for a walk and then sat in the lobby right in front of the desk for three hours. We approached the desk again and asked about our room and they said it had been ready for a couple of hours. They couldn't miss us sitting there all that time as we were the only ones there and only 6-8 feet right in front of the desk. Consequently, that did not start us out on the right foot. The room was nicely decorated, hardwood floors, and comfortable bed (though short) with nice linen. The bathroom was very modern and there was always lots of hot water. We were at the front of the hotel but would not hear any street noise during the night. Lots of places to eat nearby and the metro was very close.
"Great location average hotel"
Location in Salamanca was excellent. Lots of restaurants and museums close by. Room was average. Unfortunately it smelt musty and we both awoke with congested sinuses. Breakfast was good for a Spanish buffet. Front desk were very friendly and helpful.
