Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Near nightlife, restaurants and public transportation
  • Clean, updated rooms with hardwood floors and minibars
  • Basque restaurant on-site, plus 24-hour room service
  • Solid breakfast buffet (for a fee)
  • Relaxing courtyard with seating and bar service
  • Premium Rooms offer more space, a few extras and a private terrace
  • 5 meeting rooms and a business center with one computer
  • Free Internet in the lobby (but fee for in-room Wi-Fi)

Cons

  • Few attractions within walking distance
  • Rear-facing Standard Rooms are dark and small (but quieter)
  • Tiny flat-screen TVs
  • Small, windowless fitness center with dated cardio machines
  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi (but free Internet access in the lobby)

Bottom Line

This upper-middle-range hotel caters to business travelers with a small (but dated) fitness center, a solid breakfast buffet, meeting rooms, and a convenient location near the financial district and public transportation. All rooms have hardwood floors, work desks with comfortable chairs, and stocked minibars, but flat-screen TVs are tiny and there’s a pesky fee for Wi-Fi. Premium Rooms feature more space; great extras such as Hi-Fi sound systems, Fagor coffeemakers, and separate walk-in showers and tubs; and private terraces. The neighborhood is known for its nightlife, varied dining options, and easy access to the historic center and business areas, but there are few tourist attractions nearby, so those who want to explore the city on foot might want to stay closer to Sol and Gran Via.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Great for business travelers, but tourists will have to take the Metro or bus to attractions

The NH Abascal is located in the Rios Rosas neighborhood of the Chamberi district. There are plenty of restaurants and nightlife in the immediate area, and three metro stations can be found within four blocks of the hotel.

Rios Rosas is one of six major subdivisions of Chamberi. It's a surprisingly pedestrian-friendly area located close to the financial district. A subtle and charming blend of corporate offices, residences, and nightlife geared towards people in their early 30s make up the neighborhood. Low-key partying, dining, and convenient access to other areas of the city make it popular with young professionals and well-heeled couples.

  • 17-minute drive or 40-minute Metro ride to Madrid-Barajas Airport
  • Blocks to restaurants and bars
  • 10-minute walk to upscale shopping on Serrano Street
  • 17-minute walk or 7-minute Metro ride to nightlife and dining in Alonso Martinez
  • 20-minute walk or 10-minute Metro ride to Santiago Bernabeu stadium
  • 12-minute Metro ride to Plaza de Castilla, the heart of the financial district
  • 15-minute Metro ride to shopping on Gran Via
  • 15-minute Metro ride to Puerta del Sol
  • 17-minute Metro ride to Templo de Debod Park, with great views and an original Egyptian temple
  • 18-minute Metro ride to Chamartin train station
  • 19-minute bus ride to Cibeles
  • 20-minute Metro ride to Plaza Mayor
  • 21-minute Metro ride to La Latina, a nightlife hotspot
  • 21-minute bus ride to El Prado Museum
  • 22-minute Metro ride to Reina Sofia Museum
  • 22-minute bus ride to Puerta de Alcala and Retiro Park
  • 22-minute bus ride to Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
  • 23-minute Metro ride to Plaza de Oriente, home to the Royal Palace, the Royal Theater and Sabatini Gardens
  • 26-minute Metro ride to La Almudena Cathedral
  • 27-minute Metro ride to Atocha train station
  • 37-minute Metro ride, or 19-minute drive to IFEMA fair grounds
