The NH Pacifico is a 62-room hotel outside of the center of Madrid. Rooms are big and bright with hardwood floors, lots of natural light, minibars, and work desks. Updated marble bathrooms have decent-sized showers. Some features aren't the most up to date -- there are still old tube TVs -- and there is a fee for in-room Wi-Fi. This no-frills property doesn't have many amenities beyond its generous breakfast buffet in a large, sunny dining area. There is also a small business center with Internet access and a big, modern lobby with plenty of space to lounge. However, the hotel's location is its biggest drawback. The property is adjacent to Vallecas (one of Madrid's more seedy neighborhoods) and is in the shadow of the busy M-30 Beltway.
