... was telling me his experiences. He is an empathic person but on a more extreme level. He can not handle group healing sessions and he senses all energy on a much more intense level. We talked a lot about his experiences and he seemed to have lost faith in the people. And now I am ready to leave, 5 days in the city is more than enough. But, it was nice getting to know the city of Madrid. There is a rhythm there, unlike I have ever experienced in the US or ...
... mess up my attempt to get over jetlag and stayed in. Good choice too - they all got back around 4:45 AM! So late! I would definitely not have been able to get up and make even this late 11:14 AM train if I'd done that.
I actually didn't get up THAT late - just a little before 9 AM. I just took my time showering and eating breakfast and getting some more stuff set up on my phone and tablet (downloading stuff over the wifi for ...
... lightning speed. The drinks are known to be overpriced, but with every drink you get a plate piled high with a variety of tapas. After buying only 1 or 2 big drinks, we were all tipsy and full. After tapas I met up with Elliott, Danesh and co. again. We did bottellon in a little park amidst skyscrapers in the financial district for some reason. When we were sloshed, we moved on to a club called B12. Upon entry, you get a bucket full of a drink ...
... to Kapital. When the cab driver found out where we were from, he literally yelled in excitement "I HAVE AMERICAN MUSIC FOR YOU!" then whips out a CD from his glove box.. Track 1? Metallica. Imagine, if you will, a 50ish year old Spanish man singing "Enter Sandman" at the top of his lungs, without actually knowing any of the words.. after all of our adventures last night, this will forever stick in my head as the most hilarious. Basketball Superstar is giving all of ...
So Day one is nearly over. I'm literally 30 minutes max from crashing into my bed… and it’s only 9:00pm, but it’s been a long one! I wasn’t going to do a blog, but I feel like this day warrants it! May or may not keep it up… we’ll see. Anyway, here’s Day One:
Everything at Logan went well. I had some serious butterflies on the way to the airport but once I was there I sort of settled in the fact that there was no turning back at that ...

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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
