"NH Nacional is very close to the train station but"
a few points you should ponder. Nothing too big but I stayed there in late May during some warm weather and they do not put the Air Conditioning on until the "hot" season. So if you do not want to be warm in your room, perhaps book one with a window to the outside, not an internal room. Also, they put out a nice breakfast buffet but again some advice, […] if you like to have eggs for breakfast, they do not put them in the buffet. You have to request them cooked the way you want and specify where you are seated. You may have to remind them as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed the hotel, in a very convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros: great location a few steps from the train station and a bus stop. Hotel staff was very accommodating to requests we had. Room was clean and neat. Very good deal for the price. Cons: I'm not sure if it's a normal thing with hotels in Spain (my hotel in Barcelona had the same thing) but the shower "door" was just a half piece of glass so every time […] we showered, we left a puddle outside on the floor. The air conditioning is not very strong at all, so after coming back from walking and being in the sun all day, it took a long time to cool off. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location, good hotel"
The location of this hotel is excellent, near to all facilities. Hotel room was a good size, clean, the bed comfortable, The room a little bid noise from the busy street in from of the hotel, we recommended to get ones of the back rooms, as we did on the second stay, It was perfect. The train station and buses to airport is in front. Also, right across […] the street is a huge park with lots of activity. Plenty of places to eat and just take walks...Perfect. The front desk staff was very good they were so helpful and kind during our stay. We were so thankful!, the breakfast was excellent, the staff at the breakfast was good. Overall, a very good hotel, but two weak points: first very SLOW wifi, and second The air-conditioning was bad, doesn’t work well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The first room we received was too small we asked for a bigger one and they moved us to another, much better. Very clean, great breakfast, excellent location, near the museums and train station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good choice near the train station"
Hotels near train stations tend to be pretty grim, but the NH Nacional is a very pleasant place to stay. In addition to easy access to the Atocha station, it is also close to the Parc del Retiro, the Reina Sophia museum, and the Prado. Our hotel room was quite pleasant and comfortable and larger than most downtown hotel rooms. The street noise was well […] controlled by a heavy screen that could be lowered over the window. The staff was helpful and pleasant and the price was reasonable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Atocha"
Nice locaction, Close to Atocha, One of the most important train station in the city. Complete breakfast, no gymGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel facilities were typical of this chain. Disappointed in front desk personal. Regarding breakfast we were told 2 opposite responses. We needed to pay extra and it was included. Key cards failed on a daily basis requiring us to return to desk. Wi Fi also had to be renewed daily which was a hassle. It's the little things in life that make it […] stressful Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room was a good size. We loved being down the street from the train station and buses to airport. Also, right across the street is a huge park with lots of activity. Plenty of places to eat and just take walks...Perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was rated as a 4 star but at best was a 2 1/2 to 3 stars. Small rooms, even though we upgraded to a deluxe suite (Still wonder why they call it deluxe???). The lobby was crowded at times. Located on a very busy and ugly corner of Prado and Atocha. Staff were helpful but the hotel overall condition did not help. In short, the pictures presented […] in Hotels.com website were VERY DECEIVING!!!!!! My suggestion? Have a friend check the hotel and THE ROOMS before booking.

Hotel and room were quite nice. Room was quite noisy and restaurant service quite bad, both restaurant and bar did not serve alcohol beverages. .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not the hotel in the picture"
This particular NH Nacional is not the one shown on the hotels.com page. It is just a couple blocks the el prado, but it is a different hotel. Also, we put the do not disturb sign on our door every day but house keeping still came in. The people at the front desk were friendly and everyone spoke english. Nice hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A goog time in Madrid"
ExcelentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and walking distance to many things"
We chose this hotel as we wanted to see the Prado Museum, Cathedral and be close to the train station as we took the train to various parts of Spain from the Madrid area. The local cafe's were very accommodating and found the tapas to be excellent! The hotel was a perfect choice for us. The traffic and sirens during the night time hours were disturbing; […] especially if one tends to be a light sleeper. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A very nice and conveniently located place."
We arrived past midnight and were nicely attended. The person at the desk was very kind and friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a handy distance from Atocha train station, where you can go to or from the airport or rail destinations. It is across the Paseo del Prado from the Prado Museum and botanic garden, if those are your destinations. Not a fancy hotel, but reasonable, with a pleasant reception crew.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel, good location"
The hotel is well located, closet of the train and metro stations. El Prado and the Queen Sofia museums are also very close. By metro you can access the main touristic places in Madrid. The rooms were small but comfortable and clean. The staff at the reception is in general nice and the free internet is good. You can also rent a car in the hotel lobby […] and take tours. Breakfast was not included we had to pay extra but it was a good buffet. There are also cheap restaurants nearby and a Burger King. The hotel has parking, I did not use it, and you have to find out if they charge you extra for use it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location that's it"
We stayed 3 nights, out of a 7 day trip to Spain. Upon arrival there was no bell man to help with luggage. We had 2 extra suitcases we had brought that we were shipping to my sister. She had arranged for a service to pick them up at the hotel. There was no conceirge service so cases had to be left in care of front desk. Cases did not get picked up until […] last day because hotel was not answering their phone. The first 2 nights were very comfortable a/c speaking, but it quit working the last nite. Minimal food service was available & there was also bar & coffee service. That was a plus, since the bartender was also delivery person for rooms. The staff at the hotel were extremely nice & pleasant to deal with. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great setup and well maintained hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is awesome! So close to the museums and train station. Within a walk to all the main attractions in Madrid. Breakfast is a little expensive and the free wifi is slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good location"
But, the wifi was very poorly administrated. Multilpe attempts to login, each device with differant passwords, changing passwords. needs a better interface.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
":Location and attentive service"
The NH gave us everything a visitor to Madrid could ask for: super location near the Prado and Atocha, good service, and a very good breakfast room. They also provided a converter for me to charge my laptop and cell phone when mine didn't work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A good value. Great location to see the museums and park. Minutes from subway and helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"charming boutique hotel with extra helpful service"
The hotel is modern; our room was pleasant and comfortable. The desk help, including the owner, work extra hard to help guests, and serve a delicious breakfast. A few electrical glitches (our temperature control didn't work; the elevator broke down briefly), but the service made up for it. The hotel is in an evolving, bohemian neighborhood--very colorful, […] but I wouldn't recommend any of the restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location. Brilliant and helpful staff"
No doubt a smart choise if you want ta stay close to many sights. A lot of restaurants of all cahegories around. Metro 1 minute away. Not noisy. Very nice and helpfuk people at threfront deskGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but dirty & disappointing inside."
Room was dirty and needed some updating and maintenance. It was disappointing, as we had just stayed at the paseo del artes hotel on the block earlier on the same trip. Wished we would have stayed there on the tail end too. Cost more and got less. Wifi password good for 24 hrs at a time. Breakfast we paid extra for for convience as we leaving next […] morning. I was a very nice buffet but way over priced. Room was not ready at check in time, had to wait over 4 hours! Not a lot of outlets in room.. Hair dryer in room would over heat and shut off. We requested non smoking room, we got a non smoking room on a smoking floor..it stunk. Not all towels in room. Rooms are good for two people, small and poor floor plan. Very Close to Atcocha train station and museums. Held our bags for us while we waited for our room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
We had booked this wanting to be close to the sights and close to the Atocha train station where we arrived in Madrid from a repositioning cruise ending in Barcelona. Imagine my delight when we walked out of the station and saw the National 300 yds away. The Hotel is a Historic bldg. and has been remodeled nicely. Staff friendly and helpful, room overlooking […] the Botanical gardens and another 300yds to Prada Museo. We opted out of the Hotel breakfast thought it was too expensive and there are many resturants around and a Mickey Dees next door. Also hop-on hop-off stop in front. Great hotel for the price, nothing fancy but clean and great location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for us"
We were only there one day before going to Cordoba and being close to both the Prado and Atocha station helped us make the most of our day. The surrounding neighborhood is mediocre and solid food options are limited but the hotel itself was quite good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic location, nice room, good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Perfect Hotel"
The NH Hacional may be the perfect tourist hotel in Madrid. It is a short walk from the Prado, the Reina Sof�a, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza art museums, three of the great art museums of the world. Once you have had enough Goyas, there is a subway stop near-by and a stop for the "hop-on hop-off" bus literally at the front door. As for coming and going, […] the main train station is across the street with high speed trains to the rest of Spain and an airport bus that will get you to or from the airport for 5 Euros. Oh, yes, there's a McDonalds in the same building. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Heart of Madrid"
NH Nacional is in the heart of Madrid, directly across from the magnificent Prado Museum and the Botanical Garden. Frequent and inexpensive tour buses stop directly in front of the hotel, a wonderful way to see the sights because for one price you can get on and off the bus for the entire day. Also near are the Atocha and the Atocha Renfre train stations, […] clean and fast rides to anywhere you might want to go. Buy the weekly or ten-ride ticket for a bargain. Madrid is the cleanest large city I've ever seen, with friendly people and tons of things to see. My Spanish is a little rusty, but everyone I met was patient and helpful.

"Too expensive for the service"
Hotel is well located close to metro station and main tourist destinations within Madrid. The service was not good. Staff at lobby not well prepared. Not even close to professional. Seems that they are all new and don't know basic things (directions...) they should know. Internet service very slow. You have to change passwords every day. Every other […] day they forgot to put towels in the room. The main entrance was blocked because of a problem with the door. 5 days later problem was still there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bit cramped"
The room (standard double) was a bit cramped, even by European standards; this was amplified by a rather odd furniture arrangement. Our room was clean, but some of the furnishings were dated (and rather worn from use) and general maintenance was lacking - room HVAC did not function properly, thermostat was damaged, and tub drain from the room above […] leaked thru the ceiling vent onto our toilet (a rather rude awakening in the morning). Common areas were quite nice, although there were issues with the entry doors from the street. Great location, directly across from the Botanical Gardens and very close to main train station. Overall, not the worst hotel experience, but very far from the best. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel with modern rooms, very limited wifi"
This was a nice and well-maintained hotel. The rooms were modern in design and had a few quirks in their layout (e.g., in the closet and bathroom). Their claim of free wireless internet access is basically a lie, though, since the free connection that they offer is severely limited in both bandwidth and total data transfer per day. The location is […] quite close to the major museums, and the Atocha train station, but a bit further from the interesting parts of the center of Madrid (20 minutes walk, or a few stops on the metro).

"Nice Hotel by the train station."

"Great location, great value"
I'd recommend this hotel in a heartbeat. We took the bus from the airport and the hotel is just a short walk across the street. The hotel is close to dining, shopping, parks, museums, and the train station (which was perfect for our day trips!) We were in Madrid for over a week and rarely had to take a cab to see attractions. Some of the rooms are adjacent […] to a discotecque. We were originally put in one, but when we requested a different room we were accomodated right away. That being said, the walls are still pretty thin so even if you're not next to the dance club, if you're a light sleeper it's a good idea to bring earplugs. Neither my husband nor I speak much Spanish which we were worried about, but all of the people at the front desk spoke great English. Rooms are not huge, but we weren't there much anyway since we did so much sightseeing. Like I said, we'd stay there again! Great value for such a large city! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"close to train station and metro"
Hotel was nice, location great. Took day trips so it was just a walk across the street to get the train. It was the most expensive of all the rooms we stayed in on this trip, (Barcelona, Valencia & Paris), but really my biggest complaint was that they charged for use of the computer. All the other less expensive places provided computers as a courtesy.... […] kind of a slap in the face to pay top dollar and then be charged extra for every little thing. Room was comfortable, building kept up nicely. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location and price! Would stay again 100%"
A wonderful location nearby kapital (a famous nightclub) and the Prado museum. Close to las huertas, an area of bars and restaurants, and close to the atocha train and metro station. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, going out of their way to help. The rooms were clean with basic comforts. I would certainly stay here again. You won't find anything […] better for the price! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel seems to be geared towards the business and foreign traveler. Located in an extremely busy section of Madrid just steps away from Atocha train station. The room was very nice and more luxurious than the pictures indicated. Even though it was on a very noisy street, the room was quiet (except for the annoying sound of the elevator but the […] interior door inside the room eliminated that noise as well). We were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
