Lovely location on a quiet street but still in the centre. Plenty of restaurants around. Polite and helpful staff and breakfast to good standard. There's parking at the hotel too which is a plus. Overall a great stay, would recommend to anyone.

Located in the Posh Salamanca district, AC recoletos is well situated and modern boutique hotel. The rooms are contemporary and well kept with a fantastic morning breakfast buffet. When in madrid do not hesitate to consider Recoletos. Tip, use their cab service to get to the airport and try to stay in the 4th floor.

I was recently in Madrid for two days leisure and two days business. This hotel covered my business time. Here's what I liked: - Location. It's near downtown, and really close to everything. - Modern. They've re-designed the rooms. They're a bit funky. - Clean. And toiletries of all types. We're talking dental kits, slippers, etc.. Here's what I didn't... More

In a quiet part of the upscale Salamanca district, the hotel is situated on a street with several nice restaurants, and two blocks from some of the nicest ones in town. Easy access to the Metro, which is cheap and trains come every 2 minutes or so, so very convenient. Quiet rooms, windows you can open, very comfortable in November... More

We stayed 3 nights at the AC Hotel Recoletos. The location was very good - walking distance to all the sites and surrounded by very good restaurants. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

We stayed at the AC Hotel Ricoletos for 3 nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the public area was attractive.

The hotel is in a great location. Very close to Retiro Park and Puerto de Alcala. We walked everywhere but there is a Metro one block over as well. The hotel is modern and clean. The rooms were adequate, not luxurious but fine. Breakfast was included and that was more than enough for 2 meals.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
