This is a neighborhood hotel near the train station. I found nearly every sort of thing I wanted in the area. My biggest complaint was noise from the hotel at night. We were near a staircase and it seemed to attract noise from the lobby. There was some sort of piped in music as well that was not pleasant to listen to in bed. Much of this was improved when we changed rooms. The neighbor hood included a lot of little businesses where we were able to find odds and ends that we forgot to pack or lost. The train station was 3 blocks and the metro 2 blocks,
The hotel is OK for people that only want it to sleep. The room its no too small, but only have a small table and small stool, tv, safety box, the lighting is very poor, the bathroom is ok, with nice hot water in the shower.
Artrip is a small 17 room hotel that is reasonably priced and in a good location to visit the art museums or take the Metro. The staff members are friendly, efficient, and knowledgable.. We arrived before check-in time and were warmly greeted, offered coffee, and wi-fi access. Our luggage stored, we went to explore the city and upon return our room was ready.
The room was cool... the white walls and glass dividers gave off a modern vibe. My friend and I loved the two sinks in our room. counter space to put your toiletries, hooks in the shower area for your towel (the shower gel has a nice scent. I could have stayed in the shower forever if it were not for the even more comfortable bed and luscious bedding.
I hope the owner will maintain the quality he has established. I'd return for another stay, but am worried too many people will find out about this gem in Madrid.
South of the centre, Atocha is Madrid’s largest train station with fast trains to Andalusia and, more surprisingly, tropical gardens (with a pleasant café) in the old terminal building. The Museum of Anthropology is opposite and, over the Ronda de Atocha, the Reina Sofia art museum has benefited enormously from a bold, modern expansion. Nearby, Teatro Circo Price is a traditional circus and ideal for children.
