Urban Luxury in Central Madrid

Walk to Parks and Museums

The AC Hotel Carlton Madrid is centrally located within easy walking distance of the lovely Retiro Park, the Royal Botanical Garden, and the stunning and newly renovated Reina Sofia Art Center. Atocha train and metro station, the largest in Madrid, is a five-minute walk, providing guests easy access to the city and surrounding countryside. The AC Hotel Carlton is just eight miles from the Madrid airport.

Soak Up the Culture

Art lovers will appreciate the AC Hotel Carlton’s south central location with its close proximity to the Prado Museum and the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum. The renowned Reina Sofia Art Center anchors Madrid’s Golden Triangle of Art. The hotel is just minutes from the impressive Royal Palace, the Spanish Royal Family’s official residence. Teatro Circo Price, a traditional Old World circus, is within walking distance and a popular attraction for families traveling with children.

Puerta del Sol, the true city center, and the Gran Via, the Broadway of Madrid, are a brisk two-kilometer walk, but guests can easily navigate the city’s public transportation system from nearby Atocha Station. The legendary nightlife, exquisite cuisine, and high-end shopping in downtown Madrid are experiences to savor in this charming European capital. For an elaborate but fiercely traditional tapas experience, visit La Castela near central Retiro Park.

Upscale Rooms and Amenities

The sleek modern rooms in the AC Hotel Carlton are furnished with black leather, frosted glass, and highly polished woodwork. The lavish bathrooms are clad in marble and feature spacious glass showers with rainfall showerheads, jetted soaking tubs, and striking contemporary basins. Other amenities in these soundproofed rooms include minibar, large-panel TV with entertainment options, and Wi-Fi with a surcharge.

Other property amenities include 24-hour room service and breakfast, lunch, and dinner service at the on-site AC Bar. Wi-Fi in public spaces is free; enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or coffee in the spacious lobby and check your email. There’s a small fitness center and self-serve business center on site, too.

The Bottom Line

Built in 1959, this 122-room Marriott property offers well-appointed upscale lodging on a modest budget. The southern location near the moneyed Retiro Park district is perfect for exploring on foot and close to major cultural attractions. While the Hotel Agumar is more budget-friendly, the AC Hotel Carlton's proximity to public transportation is a definite plus.
