Historical Traveler Reviews Husa Paseo del Arte Madrid
Arrived for a 2 night stay via the Metro from the airport, very cheap..1 euro, but 2 changes of station, dont take a heavy suitcase and watch your purse/wallet!!!
Hotel very modern and the room was at the front, didnt hear any noise and the bed was comfortable. Clean and modern bathroom, great wardrobe space and complimentary safe.
Few bars and cafes locally but take a right turn outside the hotel, walk uphill for 10 mins and turn right and you come to lively squares, bars, plenty of tapas bars and clubs..people in Madrid tend to stay up late!!
Breakfast in the hotel good and varied, very European, lots of fruit, cheese, scrambled eggs, toast, cakes etc..if you didnt like it there McDonalds 2 mins walk away
Unlike a lot of Spanish places weve visited, they hardly speak English anywhere, so get your phrase book ready or learn spanish..dos cervazes por favor...2 beers please!!!
overall, the hotel was good value for a city break, clean, contempary design, nice little sun terrace..it was still warm and sunny this week!, a pleasant stay and a good nights sleep..which counts!!
Brilliant stay - good all rounder
I can't imagine a better spot to stay in Madrid. The rooms are first class, the breakfast was like a full-on meal that lasted both my husband & I until 4pm some days. The Sofia is a stone's throw away, the Prado & Thiessen (2) same. The staff were always there (midnight was the latest we came back) & helpful. The room was always cleaned beautifully too. Can't find fault really, our room was quiet even though there was a disco close by & it looked over a small street that was picturesque. All in all, a lovely experience over 5 nights.
Horrible staff and Breakfast
We regularly stay at chain Husa hotels. This hotel is definitely not standard for staff and service. Certainly not 4 star. We arrived late direct from the airport - about 11.30 pm. The desk was not staffed. There were 3 or 4 other couples/families in the reception area. After about 7 mins a person came down in the lift and went behind the reception. We waited about 10 mins until it was our turn. Our room was new but without any detail !. There were double dead bolts on the door, with instructions to keep them locked at all times. The room was not clean ! ! !. We had booked in for 4 nights, we immediately went down to reception and cancelled the other 3. Do not stay at this hotel !!! Aaaaaa, Breakfast, was horrible.
Clean, modern hotel
We stayed at the Husa Paseo Del Arte for 3 nights at the start of October. Rooms clean and contemporary design with a comfortable lounger ( we also asked for a double room but had two single beds pushed together). Good sized room with plenty of wardrobe space and very clean bathroom and lovely little extras. Our room was situated on the first floor facing the back of the property and i admit it was not a great view - not that we spent much time in the room. Having a complementary safe was fantastic and it was very easy to use. The rooms had a madrid 2006 hard back guide which is great if your are a tourist visiting the area as it gave you ideas of where to visit and restaurants etc.
It was close to Attocha metro and main train station and easy to get to the airport via the metro line with a couple of line changes. Nice tapas place over the road but we tended to sit outside as it was very smokey inside. It was only a short taxi ride or metro to the main shopping districts and 5 minute walk to the park. We went on the Madrid Vision tourist bus which cost 14 euro each but actaully was not worth the money. We saw more walking around madrid and using the metro. You can get a tourist pass for only 9 euro which will last for 3 days and you can use any form of public transport within the centre of madrid.
The area the hotel is situated was not great if you wanted to walk to bars/pubs/restaurants in the evening and there seemed to be lots of road works. Instead, we needed to catch a metro or taxi to a different area where there was more places to choose from.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the food was very nice and plenty of it.
Overall a good stay at the hotel.
Very nice hotel perfect location
My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Husa Paseo Del Arte in Oct. The Hotel is a very clean modern hotel, we found the staff very friendly and helpful and most spoke English quite well. The hotel is only 100 metres from Attocha Metro station and is right in the centre of the culture triangle. The Prado is very close by along with other museums also Retiro park is within a 5 Min's walk. The hotel rooms are a good size for city hotels with a nice good size bathroom. The bathroom is fully tiled and marble with a bath and shower plenty of hot water, the hotel supplies Shower gel and body milk with Dove shower cream plus a razor and shaving cream, toothbrush and paste, comb, Emery board, shoe shine, shoe horn. We did ask for a double room but we had single beds pushed together. The room has a stocked fridge and east to use complementary safe. The rooms have very nice lighting with lounger, we asked for a high floor and our room was on the 5th floor and we could not hear any noise from outside or from adjoining rooms. There are 3 lifts and they are very efficient and clean. The buffet breakfast was excellent as much as you want very good quality food with a very large variety. We booked on the net using a booking agent and paid £69 per room per night with breakfast. We both would recomend this hotel to any one.
Convenient, clean, modern
Booked this hotel through HRS.de to get 85Euro rate. Many hotels were full on this Saturday night. I wanted something close to Atoche with air conditioning, nonsmoking, at lowest rate possible for an overnight between plane and train.
I used the metro from airport to Nuevos Minesterios station, then up escalator and bought ticket from machine for Cercanias train, then over to platform and down escalator to train bound for Atoche, off at Atoche and up escalator to station. I used this route rather than all metro so I only had to change trains once and used only stations with escalators for my bags. It was easy once I found Atoche on the ticket machine and total cost only 1,20 Euros, I think for the two separate tickets.
It was an easy, though slightly uphill walk from the train station. Maybe 10 minutes with the construction in front of the station to navigate. Front desk was polite, bellman held bag until room ready at noon. I had room facing street and there was street noise, but not bad with window closed and a/c on at night. In the afternoon I enjoyed the open window with the sounds of the city and a nice breeze and sunshine while I worked at the desk in the room.
Bathroom had the half-tub plexiglass shower wall. I did get some water on the floor when rinsing, but not as bad as in some other arrangements.
Internet connection was 12Euros so I walked uphill a couple of blocks to an Internet cafe to check in.
Tiny market across the street for essentials. Some type of nightclub next door that teens started lining up for at 5pm on Saturday. They blocked the sidewalk all evening, but no problems.
I didn't eat at the hotel, bringing in a salad from the McD's just down the street on my arrival day from the US to eat for lunch around my nap. I ate breakfast at a cafe in the station on the way to my train.
Nice and clean hotel, we stayed 5 nigths from 14th. September but missed much the air-condition that was not possible to swich on in the evenings and nigths when we should sleep and It was not possible to open windows. The room-cleaners also started to make noise early in the mornings. The nearest house is a big dancing hall and there was every evening noise from this house until 07 am. We will probably not choose this hotel next time we visit Madrid. (Breakfast costed 15 euro pr. person and was ok)
Hotel increiblemente bueno
Estuvimos en este hotel en el mes de agosto aprovechando una oferta de 60 euros por una habitación doble. Pedimos habitación en planta alta con terraza y nos la dieron. Los empleados que nos atendieron siempre fueron muy amables y se esforzaron por complacernos. La habitación estaba en la 7ª planta y aunque no excesivamente grande, era muy acogedora con baño muy amplio. Lo mejor de la habitación era la terraza, orientada hacia el museo Reina Sofía, con mesa y tres sillas y una cómoda tumbona, todo ello con un diseño muy actual. En cuanto al amueblamiento de la habitación sigue la tendencia de los nuevos hoteles de diseño aunque con cierto toque clásico. LA habitación contaba con television con pantalla Lcd.
Una de las mejores cosas del hotel era el gimnasio de la planta 8ª, equipado con la última tecnologia y con vistas a la glorieta de acceso de la estación de atocha. En la planta baja había un bar y un restaurante muy modernos en cuanto a su decoración.
Por último señalar la buena ubicación, cerca de la estación de atocha, con una parada de metro enfrente y a un paso de los 3 museos mas importantes de Madrid, Thysen, Prado y Reina Sofia.
En definitiva un gran hotel, por un precio mas que razonable.
We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in June. Modern, very clean, comfortable beds and well sized rooms for a city hotel. (It transpired that some rooms are larger than others). Quality seems to vary a little bit from room to room. For example: Our bathroom was absolutely beautiful and thoroughly modernized with brand new shower. Our childrens had an older bath tub with new shower. Excellent location for a city bus tour and the main museums. Well priced considering the location except for Breakfast (you can have a lovely breakfast for a fraction of the price in a cafe right across the street!). Ask for a room at the back of the hotel to ensure peace and quiet. Air conditioning was a bit suspect - not working as well as it should (although it was incredibly hot at this time of the year) and the staff were quite difficult and stroppy when we complained. Also agreed with other customer comment about the TV. In our children's room, they could get the world cup in our room right next door, we couldn't. Overall a very nice hotel and I would definately stay there again.
Nice, new hotel near the museums
Spent the weekend at Paseo del Arte in Madrid. It is a new hotel (feb 06), very clean and neat. It is a block walk from Atocha and very close to the museums. Close to busses and metro (everything in Madrid is close to a metro). Not the cheapest place, but the rooms were nice. Breakfast had more than the typical fruit, coffee, and croissant, but was not included in the price. Only complaint I had was that there were only 10 channels on the TV and NONE of them carried any of the World Cup games.

... no hassles, another benefit of being early no other customers waiting at the car hire hut. I won't know the final cost until the local taxes and rebates apply to my credit card. Even with petrol and parking it should be quite a reasonable deal for the time and flexibility it afforded us. Our flight is running to schedule and it seems we will be in Barcelona earlier than I had ...

Walking, walking. Got lost didn't I! Maybe it's up this street? Nup! I'll see what's up here. ???? That looks familiar. No. Mmmm. I took out my Globus book with the hotel names.

We found the Hop On bus, taking a one hour tour of the alternate route two to see the “newer” part of Madrid. In Madrid, “newer” means built after 1940. We hopped off at the Plaza del Sol and wandered into a new area not yet visited. Susan did some shopping.

... sort of neat. I could actually read along too, since they aren't talking super fast.
After mass I stayed to pray for a little while and then "toured" the Cathedral, looking at the all the chapels and paintings and taking a bunch of pictures. So there is my 'don't pay to see Catholic Churches if you're Catholic' strategy. Although that wasn't actually my intent, it did sort of end up happening that way. A lot of times though they won't have mass in ...

The third man had been in a motorcycle wreck which doesn't surprise me in the least. The motorbikes weave in and out of ...
