Within walking distance to major attractions, nightlife, and restaurants
The Catalonia Atocha is centrally located right on the southern border of Huertas neighborhood, home to wonderful tapas bars and restaurants, attractions, quaint cobblestone streets, shops, and young nightlife. El Prado and Reina Sofia museums are just a short walk away, as are Atocha train station, Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. This location is perfect for those who want to explore the city on foot, as most major sights are within a 15-minute walk away. For longer distances, there are several buses and a Metro stop a block from the hotel.
Located right across the street, Lavapies is a multicultural neighborhood full of tapas bars, Indian restaurants, and great mellow nightlife spots popular among young Madrileños. However, it might feel a little seedy at night, so make sure to stay on the main thoroughfares, where Police presence is heavier.
The Catalonia Atocha is an upper-middle-range hotel in a central location within walking distance of Puerta Del Sol and Plaza Mayor. Its 138 rooms have contemporary decor (light woods and a neutral color scheme), as well as modern amenities, including flat-screen TVs with cable, minibars, and free Wi-Fi -- but no coffeemakers. Clean, modern bathrooms feature sleek walk-in showers or tubs with rain showerheads, and heated towel racks. There’s a decent Mediterranean restaurant and a bar on-site, but the highlight here is the rooftop deck with wonderful city views and a large Jacuzzi.
