Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.

I stayed here on a business trip and had a huge room with a terrace. It had all the facilities I needed and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The welcome drink at the bar, the chocolates and the dessert delivered to my room as a birthday surprise were all lovely

Overall a very nice hotel with modern rooms but the management should mention that there are major construction works going on outside the hotel, right at the doorstep. They mention that the jacuzzi is closed in the winter so they should mention this too. It was horrible noise

Dear guest, thank you very much indeed for your detailed review as it is useful for us to improve our daily service and for the future visitors who choose Catalonia Atocha. We are glad you enjoyed the room and especially some details such as the kettle facility. We are sorry to know your visit was bothered by the works at Calle Atocha: unfortunately this does not depend on the hotel as we were not informed when they exactly started nor when they finished. The truth is that now they're almost done and the result is very good, Calle Atocha has become a very pleasant street so if you ever decide to come back we'll be more than pleased to welcome you again. Please receive our warmest regards

This hotel is in a great location, since it's close to the subway, art museums and a 20 minute walk to Plaza Mayor. This hotel was very clean and the front desk workers were very helpful in getting me oriented to the area. There was a safe and blow dryer in the room. I had

Is there a supermarket close to the hotel?
Yes, there is one right across the street to the left of the hotel, maybe 2 mins walk right on Atocha St. It's of decent size. I didn't shop there so can't comment on the products.

Will the hot tub be open in late november (18-21)?
You should contact the hotel because I'm not sure if it's opened during the cold months. It is on the terrace so it is outdoors. We went in August so it was open.

Dear Esperanza, thank you for your interest in Catalonia Atocha. The rooms with view have a baby balcony and some of them a window: both can be opened. As for the shuttle bus from the airport: it stops at Atocha Railway station, 600 meter far from the hotel (uphill anyway). I hope this information was useful and really hope to see you soon. Best regards

I’m not sure, as I only saw an area for buses and taxis. To be honest you can walk from Atocha which is about 15minutes walk from memory, although this depends on walking speed and luggage. Also, you can get the metro which goes from Atocha with a stop a few metres from the hotel door. Also if you used a taxi from Atocha there is a taxi rank outside the hotel.

"Good for a Short Stay Hotel"
"Depending on street construction (which may take some time) - ask for a non-street facing room."
"Go to Madrid in the spring, not summer as it's too hot."
