“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

This was the second time I had stayed at this hotel. I had business to conduct in the area and this hotel was a 10 minute walk to the office, so ideally situated for my purposes.

The staff were friendly and efficient on check-in and I was directed to my room with the minimum of fuss. The room was tastefully decorated and had a view over the rooftops of Madrid. The bed was comfortable, there was a desk where I could work, and there was flatscreen TV on the wall. (However there were no English language channels to choose from - not that this was an issue for me as I had little time to watch TV anyway). The rooms are equipped with WiFi for which there may be a small charge unless you had it incorporated in your room rate.

The bathroom was a cool dark green marble and glass with all of the usual amenities.

The hotel had a comfortable lounge bar and small restaurant. I only used for the restaurant for breakfast which was provided as buffet from which you could select all of the usual continental choices or bacon and scrambled egg. A good start to the day.

Nearby there are a number of good restaurants, so I tended to eat out in the evening.

Strangely for me, I did not sleep well whilst there - though I do not believe this was related to the hotel, but rather my over-active mind. I would say that having a 6th floor room this time was a lot quieter than the 1st floor room I had last time.

It's a nice little hotel and I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room up near the top of the building.

The hotel is kind of hard to find. It doesn't have any big signs and it's on a small side street that really doesn't match the nice interior and rooms. At the same time, though, that small street is very close to several transit lines that can get you to all the hot spots for very cheap.
The room was very spacious, but the A/C could have been better (no pun intended), *especially* during the hot, hot, hot Madrid summer. Just walking to the hotel can be painful, even after the sun has gone down.
Service was good, though, and rooms very comfortable, but still on the AC Hotels black-and-chrome color scheme, so it feels like an odd mix of futuristic and retro design.
Definitely a great place for just a comfortable, well-located place to sleep at night, especially for the price.

Room Tip: none of the rooms really have any view, so just try to get a corner one, which would be larger

Hotel is nicely appointed. Bedding is sheet plus blanket rather than duvet which would be my preference. Bathroom good. Hotel staff courteous and welcoming although I was left mystified as to why I could not get an iron before 7am.

Well located for eating with loads of restaurants and bars nearby. Good recommendation by the check-in clerk.

Hotel is too hot though, corridors miles to hot and could not get room down to a pleasant temperature.

Good value.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the front - lots of noise at 3am with lorries unloading/bins being emptiped.

The hotel is average . The bathroom is amazing , but the breakfast could be better for 15 euros. The team also could be more friendly, I did not get a "good morning" or " good afternoon", while my wife and I were there , and we spent 7 days at this hotel.
It is well located, very close to bus stops and a metro station, and Madrid is a well connected city, public transportation is great, even if the hotel is not exactly near the center, you can get there very easily. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, we walked to the substations without worries.
There are several options for breakfast and lunch nearby , then I suggest you not waste your money eating at the hotel .
We missed a heater in the room, but the hotel is very clean, and the room service is efficient and cleaner who cleaned our room always did a great job .
My only disappointment were the receptionists ... First I thought maybe it was the way Spaniards are . But we met several Spaniards and they were always so friendly with us, I think the team can do much better than they did

Room Tip: Try to get the conner rooms.

The hotel is located a bit away from the tourist attractions but you can get there by metro. I was in Madrid for business so it didn't bother me. Good shopping area is about 10-15 mins walk away, or a short cab ride, for that matter.
The rooms and beds are comfortable, unfortunately no coffee making or ironing facilities. Internet is not free. Didn't bother with the gym as it was closed by 10 pm and seems to be just another guestro om. The noise proofing between rooms and to the aisle are not great, expect to be up early if you are a light sleeper. All in all this is not really Marriott or Courtyard quality, more like Fairfield, but it was good value for money so may go again.

I first heard of AC Hotels when they were being acquired by Marriott. When I needed to visit Madrid for a little more than a week, the AC Hotel, Avenida America seemed to fit the bill for me. It is close to the Metro (Avenue de America {2000 ft.} and Cartagena {1500 ft,}) as well as Madrid's excellent city bus service.

My room was contemporary and well-appointed. It was clean and bright, with high-quality bath products. The complimentary, well-stocked (and re-stocked daily) mini-bar was a delightful surprise!

The highlight however, was the courteous and very helpful staff. Each employee was pleasant, smiling, courteous, and very eager to help with whatever we requested. Everyone was able to speak a little English, with some of them displaying good fluency. My broken Spanish was not a barrier. Two of the male desk staff were particularly outstanding. One person's name we did not get, and the other is Enrique Gomez. Both went out of their way to help with directions, travel time we should expect, and various other prejuntas (questions.)

The only negative was the less-than-stellar (free, however) internet connection. Several times, after leaving for many hours, my internet would not connect from the room, and I had to take the laptop to the lobby to re-establish a good connection. This should be easily corrected, but wasn't.

I will heartily recommend AC Hotel, Avenida America to travelers coming to Madrid. Good service, clean, secure rooms, great customer service, and reasonable prices make this a great choice.

Room Tip: Ask to be assigned a room away from the street. We had heard of noise problems, but did not experie...
