NH Nacional Madrid Reviews
Great stay Jan 23, 2015
Some background information, I had two brief visits to Madrid on this trip. This visit in particular was when I had taken a train from Barcelona to Madrid Atocha AVE train station in which I would be flying out of Madrid Barajas airport the next day to Morocco.
So when I arrived at Madrid's Atocha AVE train station I decided to treat myself a bit and head to the nearest hotel rather than another hostel. I needed an uninterrupted night's rest and I was able to do so at this wonderful hotel. Personally, I would say the value was high for me because of the proximity to Atocha and the frequency I saw taxi cabs. I was an extremely close walk from the station to the hotel and being that Atocha is a hub taxis were plentiful. I know that I could wake up later and not worry about waving down a taxi. I gladly paid for a more expensive fare for the cab than taking the metro just because of the convenience of it all.
I checked in midday and it was super quick and easy. The staff was very friendly and spoke great English, (I only know basic Spanish but I tried). The historical building is situated in Madrid's art neighborhood with views of the botanical gardens. My room came with free wifi (password included, tv and offered room service if needed. The luxurious bathroom was extremely clean and was separated by a partition which kind of made the actual bedroom seem rather small. Despite it being winter when I was there, I still went out onto the balcony that my room provided. I enjoyed the sights and sounds of the city but once you closed the balcony doors it was as quiet as can be. The bed was comfortable and the linens smelled fresh. There was a decent amount of closet space if you happened to be there for a longer period of time.
Location was key for me in regards to quick turnover to my next destination. I didn't use all of what the hotel had to offer. Overall I would recommend this hotel based on convenience.

Our Room Circled Jul 18, 1964
I stayed here several times in 1964. It was a very convenient location - within sight of the Atocha railroad station.
The first time, I was with my sister and year old niece. We had a sink in the room. I wrote on the postcard to my daughter that the rooms were clean and that we got a brass bedstead type crib. I have pictures of the crib and from the room.
We were able to feed my niece and put her down to sleep, and then the maid would (for a small tip) watch her while we went up to the restaurant to eat.
This hotel amenities have changed quite a bit from when we stayed there although the location is still good. The website says

Breakfast buffet, breakfast for early risers, room service, rooms for the handicapped.
Moreover, our guests can enjoy a magnificent restaurant, cocktail-bar, bar cafeteria, 5 function rooms (from 10 to 180 persons), wake-up call service, cradles for infants, strong box in the room, laundry and dry cleaning service, the hotel’s own parking lot, free newspapers and a safe in the Reception
The rooms are functional, very luminous and comfortable, apart from being elegantly decorated, the large majority of them remodelled.
They have all the details that distinguish our hotel chain: air conditioning, mini-bar, TV (with a broad range of pay per view films), hair dryer, pillow menu, various welcome products ...
The marble bathrooms are characterized by their functionality and elegance.
In 1964, they didn't have any of that - no A/C, no mini-bar, no TV. We didn't miss it because we didn't generally have those things in those days.
Their weekday rates for single or double occupancy in July are 185 € which is currently $241. Weekend rates are a little less
