"Just a little short of great"
Overall this is a pretty good hotel. The interior spaces, from the lobby, to the hallways, to the rooms, felt modern and well-maintained. The service was friendly. The rooms were unusually spacious by European standards. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were well-proportioned and well-appointed. The location is fine. The neighborhood isn't anything […] special, but you're just a few minutes' walk from Atocha station, the Prado and its surroundings, or the old town area. There is free wi-fi in the lobby, but not in the rooms, which was slightly disappointing. The biggest drawback is that the walls, as others have mentioned, are truly paper thin. If the folks in the room next to you are having a normal conversation, or listening to the TV at a normal volume, you will hear everything. If the room on either side of you is up late you may be in for a fitful night of sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spacious quarters with excellent bathroom"
Had two rooms and both were quite nice. Room is large with good bed and very big bathroom. Windows have shutters on them which allows for complete darkness if you like. Quite and in a convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
My wife and I stayed here a few nights on the first leg of our honeymoon. Good price for the room. If you're a park person, you won't do better than Buen Retiro right next door. If you're more about the cafe/restaurant/nightlife scene, then it might be better to be north/northwest of the park, but overall we had pretty good access to all of that. I […] didn't like the key-lock safe versus coded lock, since it's just more stuff to carry. Wifi only in the lobby was annoying, but it worked well at least. Two big cons: the double beds are two twins pushed together, which is really annoying. Also, the room was loud due to street traffic. Cafe Delicias gets noisy pretty early in the morning. We faced the street and were on a lower floor - try avoid both of those. Morning breakfast was ridiculously overpriced; you could do better at nearby restaurants. Overall - we were really happy with the price and got what we needed for our time in Madrid. But if you want something more romantic or centered in a more trendy area, I'd look elsewhere.

It was great! The room was noisy, as while I was trying to get to sleep, I could hear the occupants in the next room's conversation while they were bathing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best front desk personnel"
front desk personnel - the best during my stay in spain. very helpful & friendly. the room was small as expected but clean. my only dislike was location. i was travelling by myself and found the hotel a bit distant to mass transportation and attractions - my bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location near Attocha Train Station"
Walking distance to Attocha, where I left from in the morning. Not much else around there. Wifi not included with room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A peadeful and pleasant hotel; very modern, so not too much atmosphwere but highly worthwhile. Near park and station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great front desk staff but noisy hotel."
Very modern clean hotel but for some reason it is really noisy. You can hear people running water and coming in and out of rooms. Front desk staff was terrific and extremely helpful. Breakfast was good. Not a bad neighborhood. Five minutes from Retiro Park and ten minutes from the Prado. Nice size rooms and bathrooms. No free internet except in public […] areas. You will need to pay for internet. No coffee in the rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel at excellent location"
Excellent hotel with good room size. Clean and decorated with contemporary art. Very good and helpful staff. Located conveniently walking distance from Achote Train Station and the city center. Good breakfast. Very good deal for the price. Would recommend it any time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful, helpful & attentive service. Beautiful hotel, conveniently located within walking distance close to everywhere we needed to go. The room was spacious and nicely appointed, with a well-stocked mini bar full of a variety of refreshments. The bathroom was separated from the room by a large foyer and modern frosted glass doors, complete with […] nice toiletries. The only downside was the hard, very uncomfortable bed. It really felt like we were sleeping on a rock. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent service by Concierge"
We will definitely return to this hotel. During our stay from Apr 16-18, 2014, we were helped by a very efficient, cheerful and warm front desk officer. She made sure that we were quickly checked in, our family needs were met and she gave very good recommendations for sights and restaurants. The front desk officer is a gem of this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A pokey hotel"
Dont be fooled by the word Marriot. This hotel is very average and not worth the ranking it has. The gym is miniscule and uninviting. The room is average nothing more. I wouldnt stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Really noisy and so so neighborhood"
I stay in Madrid frequently but this is my first...and last stay at this hotel. The room was nice enough but I could hear eveything from my neighbors. It sounded like their TV was in my room! Also the neighborhood is not nearly as attractive as on the other side of Atocha along Paseo del Prado where I have stayed before.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by AC Hotel Carlton Madrid by Marriott Dear guest, First of all we would like to thank you for your comments, they will help us to improve in the future. We apologize for the inconveniences caused during your stay. If you would have told our front department staff, we would have offered you a change to another room more quiet, or we would have talked to your neighbor . We are really sorr for the inconveniences caused. Our neighborhood is a typical neighborhood in Madrid, safe and nice, much commercial than Paseo del Prado which is much more touristic. Thank you again for your comments. We hope you visit us next time you came to Madrid, and give us the opportunity to give you a nicer experience. Best regards

"Modern, clean, and close to Atocha"
I've stayed at the Carlton every time I've been to Madrid in the past five years. It's been renovated in that time, but has remained friendly and economical, and is very convenient to the Atocha train station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel location is so good."
I arrived MAD airport in the midnight and next morning I had to get on AVE train. Front staff was nice and my room was very comfortable so could sleep very well. The way to the Atocha station was short and the cost was cheap so everything was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel apparently had a recent upgrade because the furniture in the room and the fixtures in the bathroom were very modern and in very good shape. The restaurant food was very good and the mini-bar prices were not outrageous. I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of the Atocha train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Modern Hotel"
Beautilful hotel, great location, beautiful rooms. Great Buffet breakfast, nice amenities. The only "minus" : free wifi only in the lounge.Close to Public transportation and museums.The personnel was very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"1st Trip to Spain"
Attractive, upscale hotel but unfortunately located on a very busy thoroughfare. We were located on the front side on the 4th floor and the crosswalk light would flash on the ceiling - also noisy from the traffic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay, but there are better options"
This is the first of several AC hotels I stayed while I visited Spain -- wow, what a beautiful and modern decor. My room was a studio with modern but warm decor with a sliding dojo-style door to separate the room from the bathroom and hallway, I found the room very comfortable. I chose this hotel in its proximity to the train station nearby. A couple […] things to note. I did appreciate that the front desk offered to print my online train ticket for me for free provided I email the PDF. The only downside with this and other AC hotels that there was no free wifi in the rooms (as of mid-Sept 2013), only in the lobby / lounge areas. This was really disappointing as all other European hotels I stayed offered this wifi in the room free of charge. It was a little bit of a hike from the train station, as I went out the main entrance near the main traffic circle instead of a side entrance, so it turned out to be a bit of a hike with a 20kg bag. Overall, a nice one-night stay, but on my return to Madrid Atocha, I chose to stay at another area hotel with free wifi. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"clean and modern but noisey"
We waited a long time to check in as the group in front of us was arguing about mini bar charges. Manager was standing up front but did not assist front desk person or help us. Overall disappointing when you are tired from a long day of travel. Rooms were nice and modern but noisey. Nice location to train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to train station, El Prado Museum and others"
Very pleased.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is my second stay at this hotel, both times for about 10 days. The staff is excellent-friendly, professional, helpful. Two years later, I was met with the same nice employees, which I consider a testament to the hotel because of retention of staff. The hotel is clean, comfortable, safe, close to transportation (bus, metro, train), dining, and museums. […] Families, business people, single travelers and couples all seemed very happy during their stays. The dining room has a delicious buffet breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Carlton in Madrid"
Everything was great except he TV was too soft to hear and we asked them several times to come up and fix it. they finally did, the next day. Otherwise, the hotel was very nice, the wifi worked very well in the lobby. If you wanted it for your room, you have to pay 18 Euros a day for that. Kind of ridiculous fee if you ask me. The bed was very comfortable. […] The room was a nice size, also. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel near train station"
It was a nice hotel but small. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel has lots of restaurants and places to shop in walking distance as well as the high speed rail train station only about 2 blocks away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"" Good location, comfort, good breakfast.""
The Hotel was perfect for us. Everything we wanted to see in Madrid was in walking distance. Good looking modern, comfortable room. The breakfast buffet was all one could want. Special praise for the dining room manager who opened the room a little earlier for quests who were not aware of the holiday that placed it on a Saturday schedule. All the staff […] were helpful and friendly. One problem--and this should deter no one from choosing AC Carlton--skimpy bathroom supplies including a golf ball size piece of soap. (Bring your own tissues, especially in hay fever season.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the train station."
Nice hotel close to the train station, just walk only 2 minute to train station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent choice for traveling via train station"
Great hotel. We used the airporter bus to go from the airport to the train station, then a short, easy 5-10 minute walk to the hotel. We arrived at the hotel around 10:30 AM and they let us into our room.Took a nap, then explored Madrid. The beds are a firmer mattress on an elevated platform, but not uncomfortable. Room was clean, quiet (6th floor) […] and the bath was huge. Watch out, however, where you aim the shower head as the shower door is only a "half door" of glass and you can easily soak the floor outside the shower.Toiletries were included along with a hair dryer that worked just fine for my long hair. There are 3 ATMs for various banks adjacent to the hotel (across a side street), and metro stations both at the train station and one even more convenient only a 2-block walk south of the hotel. There are also lots of small markets and bodegas to buy some snacks or bottled waters (very inexpensive at these markets). The breakfast buffet was excellent. Eggs and various types of ham/bacon, fruit, pastries, coffee, tea and fresh squeezed jiuces. Worth paying a little more for the breakfast included when you book your room ahead. Also, unlike some reviewers, we found the staff very pleasant, although there can be a long trying to check out if you are arriving around 10 AM (as we did) and the staff can be a little harried. Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel for business travelers"
A generally friendly and comfortable hotel for business travelers.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place in you're arriving/departing by train"
The hotel was just as advertised for our needs. It was quick and easy walk from the Atocha train station, and walking distance of the central city park (Parque del Retiro) and into the central part of town -- we walked to Plaza Mayor and Plaza del Sol for dinner. The room was clean and modern, though travellers from the US may find it a little on the […] small side, though not overly so -- our bedroom was about 13x11 feet. We didn't try the breakfast, so we can't comment on that. However, there was a really great bakery/pastry shop about halfway up the street towards the station, on the left as you head from the station to the hotel. My only gripe, and a minor one at that, is that the (free!) WiFi in the lobby was really quite slow. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location for the Train - but not much else"
They got me with the Marriott name in the title - but not up to Marriott standards - very small and noisy rooms (the floors and ceiling must be make of very thin paper! I even heard the sound of a luggage zipper in the room next door!!); elevators made me extremely claustropohic; minimal amenities - no real gym, no real restaurant or bar in the lobby; […] they charge for Wifi in the rooms (free in the lobby); and the TV has only 1 English-speaking channel.
