Nice Budget Hotel Close to Reina Sofia Museum

Pros: Location, Cleanliness, Shower, Helpful Staff, Funky Decor.
Cons: Privacy of Bathrooms, Have Free Coffee/Tea.
Location: Retiro park, Reina Sofia museum, Prado museum
The hotel looks brand new and has fun decor. The room we had was really small but economical with space. There was a shelf and a coat rack. I'm not sure where you would fit a big suitcase in there. Luckily we just had back packs with us. The bathroom has a frosted glass door so not a lot of privacy. The shower is pretty spacious and has excellent water pressure from a rainfall shower head. You have to pay €1 each time you lock the room safe so we didn't bother. We found the location to be very convenient being close to the Art museums, Retiro park and about a 25 minute walk from the centre of the city. The staff helped us with all of our questions. When we checked out we got charged €5 for something at the bar but they didn't make us pay it when we explained that we didn't get anything from the bar.

Pros: Location! Bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The whole hotel had a homey feel and a very unique personality.
Cons: It would have been good to know at check in that you need at least 36hrs advance notice to book a transfer to the airport.
Location: All of the major art museums are within easy walking distance.
Close to all the major art museums and good restaurants.

Front desk staff answered all our questions but there was an absence of friendliness. The room was small with only the most basic things. The hotel is within 5min walk from the Atocha station. But with the metro station closed for renovation, exploring the city became inconvenient as we had to walk to the next stations.

Pros: Stylish, great location.
Cons: There should be a way to get out through the window in case of a fire.
Location: Right next to train station, museums and restaurants.
The room was super clean. All amenities were there. Very tiny which made me feel claustrophobic. The window had metal bars on it as there is a terrace of sorts for another room or apartment, so I was concerned that there was only one way out - through the door, around the hallway and down either elevator or stairs..

Pros: Location, modern looking hotel
Cons: I wish the room could have been a big bigger (but that's no possible)
Location: Right next to subway "Atocha" and RENFE high speed train station just across the street. Prado musuem is 5 mins.walk or so.
We wanted to base next to the RENFE speed train station so chose this hotel. Very good location, right next to subway “Atocha”, across the street is RENFE train station; walking distance to Prado museum and shopping areas. ** please note subway “Atocha” station is closed for installation works until 12 November 2016**, nearby subway stations are 5-7 mins walk, I think. Hotel is chic, cute and modern. Although room size is surprisingly small, it’s well equipped and clean with comfy bed. If you have lots of/big luggages, might find difficulties to allocate space in the room. It’s ok to stay for a night or two max (we spent most of the time outside hotel though). Staffs were very nice too. You have to pay extra 1 Euro for storing luggage (coin locker) after you check out, safe box in the room is also charged for 1 Euro per each time use.
