Hotel near Atocha train station

Planning to stay in Madrid for couple of days before leaving for Seville via train. Looking for a hotel located within walking distance (5-10 min) to the Atocha train station, walking distance to the major attractions (or close to the metro station) and in the safe neighborhood. My preliminary research is pointing to Husa Paseo del Arte or AC Hotel Carlton, however I am open to the other suggestions/opinions.

Thank you in advance!

You give no other criteria but 'near Atocha station'.

This is as close you can be and I will stay here for the third time end of this month - http://www.mediodiahotel.com/en/ There is an issue for some with traffic noise if overlooking the station, but I ask for and have always stayed at the rear overlooking the Plaza Reina Sofia

Thank you, WomBatt. This was a great suggestion, looked it up and it exactly fits our needs. Booked it.

Do you know if there is any good place nearby for a quick lunch or a supermarket?.

Thanks for the thanks.

Plenty of eateries in the vicinity. Immediately to the left , as you face the station from the Mediodia entrance there are two cafes or bars. At the rear of the Mediodia, in the plaza there are a couple more. Keep going left from the front entrance, turning the corner and walking about two minutes there is a MacDonalds :-)

No recollection of a supermarket , maybe a convenience/self service store, but cannot remember where or how far.

Best wishes.

pretty close to Atocha, on your way to Reina Sofia modern art museum, you'll find Brillante, a restaurant that is an institution in madrid because of their famous bocadillo de calamares (calamari sandwich). If you have some time you can stop and have one of their sandwiches. Other than that, plenty of supermarkets and bars/restaurants in the area.
