Truly Zen-Ultra Sleek-Business Class Hotel Oct 22, 2012
This is one of the most "zen" hotel I have ever stayed in!
Truly modern, ultra sleek, business class hotel. The hotel seems newly renovated and we use a card to enter (thank you very much) instead of keys. The decor is mainly black with up to-date furnishings (think black leather with shiny silver trimmings) with dim romantic lighting. Sometimes it feels like walking into a bachelor pad lol!
Being part of the Marriott Group of Hotels means you can use your points to redeem or accumulate points by staying at the hotel which is one of the plus point!
However I did encounter a slight problem locating the hotel from Atocha Madrid Station. From the map it seems easy enough but with my super huge luggage and not knowing that theres actually 2 sides of the building - 1 only for cars to enter and 1 side only for walk-in. I found the entrance for cars 1st- bummer! So i had to drag my luggage round the block to find the "main entrance". Checkin was fast enough. I had to take the lift up and walk across and S shape walkway to another building. Why didnt they mention that theres 2 buildings in the website??? Then I had to take the lift from that 2nd building up to my room.
The walkways are all super black and lighting is dim. So if u have kids or travelling with elderly or with wheelchair, this might not be ideal.
The room is as gorgeous & spacious as per the photos from the website! I had chosen this room particularly cos of the see-through shower wahaha. This would be ideal for couples ;) but I was not a couple. The shower room is huge with modern fittings, the bed was king size (I did request for feather pillows), the minibar is fully stocked (and totally free!!!)
However, wifi is NOT free. They charge 16 euros (i think its because mainly business travellers stay here so they charge excessively lol!) When I came down to check out, I think the group of business travellers (all men dressed in sharp suits) must be shocked seeing me in my colourful summer outfit lol!
