In happening Huertas, within walking distance of Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor
The NH Nacional is located on an active street near Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hotel is very close to the action without being right on top of it, so street noise at night isn't too much of a problem. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and shops in Huertas -- the area is considered by many to have the best nightlife and culinary scene in the city. It's also close to Puerta de Atocha train station, which serves the high speed trains.
The capital of Spain is a vibrant, multicultural city located right in the center of the country. The Cuatro Torres business area's additions to the city skyline (four sleek towers, including a hotel and corporate offices) give an idea of what Madrid is rapidly becoming: a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city -- albeit one that preserves its century-old traditions.
The NH Nacional is a 214-room hotel located in the Huertas neighborhood. Clean rooms have hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs, and minibars, although bedding is on the drab side. Big bathrooms are updated and feature shower/tub combos. Upgrading beyond the standard room gets more space, espresso machines, and in some cases, a balcony. A breakfast buffet with a great selection -- typical of NH hotels -- is on offer here, along with a simple cocktail bar on-site. While there is a fee for in-room Wi-Fi and some guests complain about street noise, the property is clean and offers a great location near three of Madrid's most popular museums.
