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.
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.
