Review Agumar Hotel Madrid
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.
Facilities For The Disabled
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.
Hotel Location And Facilities
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.
