Review Atocha Hotel Madrid Rafael

Page Content

Atocha Hotel Madrid Rafael
The Atocha Hotel Madrid Rafael is a large businesslike building on a wide, but quiet road behind the Atocha train station. When I arrived a Spanish convention of some sort was in full swing, and it seemed that the hotel had catered well for them in terms of providing a meeting room and conference equipment.
