HOTEL REVIEW: Hotel Augmar, Madrid

1:00 PM

After a week of sleeping sleeping on the floor, taking communal showers, and spending a night in the dusty expanse of cuatro vientos,  I was just too happy to check-in to a proper hotel and be human again.

LOCATION: Standing along Paseo de Reina Cristina, the hotel Augmar is in a quiet gentrified neighborhood and is within walking distance of estacion de atocha, Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte de Reina Sofia, and Parque del Retiro. (2pts)

SECURITY: The hotel may seem old-er but when it comes to security, they are in this century. They use security cards here. (2pts.)

CLEANLINESS: The room we stayed in was pretty clean. The sheets were fresh and the bath was spotless. (2 pts.)

STAFF: I didn't have much interaction with much of the hotel people but the staff at the restaurant was definitely friendly and competent. (1.5 pts.)

CHARACTER: The hotel tries to age gracefully. In the lobby, it has retained it's classic features - chandeliers, wrought-iron staircases, etc. Yet in its rooms, at least in which we stayed in, the interiors features clean contemporary lines. (1.25 pts.)

TOTAL: 8.75 pts.

Twin beds for Sr. Yna and I.
The closet reminds me of super small apartments seen in movies and makeover shows. 
I often wonder if people actually use the desk when they're on holiday.
a toilet, a bidet, and a towel heater/ dryer. 
This stool, with the logo/ coat of arms of the hotel, is my favorite thing in the whole room.
