Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On a quiet street in the financial district, near Santiago Bernabeu stadium
  • Bright, basic rooms with laptop-size safes, air-conditioning units and flat-screen TVs
  • Clean bathrooms with heated towel racks and shower/tub combos
  • Outdoor pool open seasonally (passes required)
  • Parking available on request (but very limited space)
  • Fully equipped meeting rooms with natural light
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the property

Cons

  • Far from most tourist sights
  • No full restaurant on-site
  • Some complaints about thin walls
  • Pool is shared with apartment building and hotel only offers limited passes

Bottom Line

The Sunotel Amaral is a mid-range property in the financial district, near the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. It has 116 bright, basic rooms with generic -- and slightly dated -- decor, along with flat-screen TVs, safes, and individual air-conditioning units. There's a nice outdoor pool open seasonally, but it is shared with the apartment building next door and the hotel only offers limited daily passes. Business travelers might find the location in northern Madrid convenient, but those who want to explore the city on foot might prefer a more centrally located property.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the financial district, close to corporate offices and the Santiago Bernabeu stadium

The Sunotel Amaral is located on a quiet street in the business district of Cuzco/Plaza de Castilla. There’s a local gym and a few bars and restaurants nearby, but the area empties out at night (except for a couple of bars of ill reputation). Few attractions can be reached on foot, but location is great for those who want to catch a game at Santiago Bernabeu stadium, where soccer team Real Madrid plays.

There are a few restaurants for every budget in this area, and hopping Avenida de Brasil draws a young crowd every weekend. The hotel is equidistant from two Metro stops (Tetuan and Cuzco), which makes it easy to get anywhere in Madrid.
