The hotel has a friendly feel, helped by the smart café to the left as you enter. It's in a street near to some ornate buildings, and is not far from the main train station of Atocha.
The Agumar Hotel Madrid has a café, and a restaurant which maintains the friendly feel while managing to be elegant. It has a tempting menu - one of the desserts on offer during my visit was Rice Pudding Soufflé.
There are cocktails or coffees available in the hotel bar, and the hotel has its own nightclub. For fans of Billiards, the games room has a Billiard table.
There's also 24 hour room service, laundry service and secure hotel parking.
The Agumar Hotel Madrid has 7 meeting rooms, the largest of which holds up to 250 people.
The style of the room I saw was elegant. The Salon Ingles has wood panelling and luxury furnishings and can be set up for boardroom meetings or dinner parties.
You can hire audio-visual equipment from the front desk, and the staff are trained to help tailor conferences or events packages. Clients also have use of a business centre which has a phone, photocopying, mobile phone rental and internet facilities.
There are several rooms suitable for disabled access. They are triple rooms.
There are 245 rooms, and each room has: en-suite bathroom, AC and CH, telephone, minibar, safe, hairdryer, satellite TV with pay-per-view movies, wake-up calls, slippers, extra bedding and towels, phone in bathroom, sofa bed on request and smoking room on request.
The rooms are homely with carpeting and simple colours.
The metro is 10 minutes walk away and from there it's 15 minutes to the commercial centre of Madrid. Atocha train station is less than 5 minutes by taxi, which also means that the Reina-Sofia Museum is close too, as it's opposite Atocha station.
Opposite the Agumar there's a bar- café. Along the road about 50 metres there's a pharmacy, and a small grocery store. Within 2 minutes walk you'll also come across another bar and a bus stop. For the bank, you'll have to head back in the direction of the metro, which is across the road and downhill.
Booking your airport transport online in advance of your trip enables you to travel from Madrid-Barajas airport directly to the door of your hotel.
The online booked transfers listed below are not public transport operated services - which means they continue to run even if there is a public transport strike.
If you don't speak Spanish, and you are unfamiliar with Madrid, arranging your transport in advance will give you peace of mind and save you the trouble of working out the route yourself. You can either book a private transfer or a shared transfer.
Private transfer (online booking only)
A private transfer means that the vehicle that you have will be dedicated for you and your party only. The driver will be waiting for you at your arrivals gate with a sign with your name on it. Your driver will assist you with your luggage and take you to a private air conditioned vehicle to take you directly to your hotel. We have provided a booking link below.
Minibus transfer (online booking only)
A minibus option is cheaper than the private transfer and the vehicle is shared amongst other travellers. Unlike a private transfer the driver will not be waiting for you at the arrivals gate you would need to make your way to a meeting point.
Follow the link below to book either your private transfer or minibus transfer online.
