Stayed here two nights in Madrid, and we really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Catalonia Atocha. First, I'll start by agreeing with most of the other reviewers that it really is in a fantastic location. Walking distance the Golden Triangle of museums, downtown shopping in Puerta Del Sol, and other sights in Madrid (although we did take a couple taxis at night, which are another cheap/great option).
The rooms were cozy, and the bed was VERY comfortable, but I believe our room was in the corner of the building so we only had one window and did not get a lot of natural light. But I will say this, the shower is fantastic! The water pressure was very powerful, and adjustable.
There may be more luxurious hotels in the area with more high-end features, but we scored a great deal at Hotel Catalonia Atocha. Location was great, bed was comfortable, and shower was amazing. There's also a bar attached to the hotel, and they serve breakfast, which was pretty tasty for 12 Euro a person. Staff was friendly and helpful as well. I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends, I would just try to request a room w/ more windows/light, otherwise a great choice for staying in Madrid!
