In a quiet residential neighborhood outside the city center
The Hight Tech Arturo Soria is located in Ciudad Lineal, a quiet residential neighborhood outside the city center. It is convenient for those who need to be close to the airport or the IFEMA fair grounds, but there are no attractions whatsoever in the area, and only small local restaurants nearby. There’s a shopping mall and a couple of bars a couple of minutes from the hotel, but for any tourist attractions visitors will have to take the Metro, which is located two blocks from the property. The subway offers easy access to the city center, but the long ride – 25 minutes one way – make it a hassle to go back to the hotel to rest during the day or to change clothes before an evening in town.
This small mid-range hotel has a convenient location for those who need to be near the airport or the IFEMA fair grounds. It has 44 generic rooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars, A/C, laptops, and hydro-massage showers. Freebies such as loaner bikes, in-room exercise bikes, free limited outdoor parking and free Wi-Fi add to the value, and the Family Rooms -- which can sleep up to five guests -- are a real deal. It’s a good pick for travelers on a budget, but note that the city center is a 25-minute metro ride from the hotel, and that there are no tourist attractions in the neighborhood.
