How is the area around the Atocha station in Madrid?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Madrid with my wife and my 2 kids (4 and 1 yo) for 5 nights in late May and we're currently looking at apartments. I found one near the Atocha train station and I'm wondering if it's a good area to stay. We're looking for a safe area, not too far from the attractions and ideally not too noisy (although we're not too picky, either; we weren't too bothered by the noise in Havana and that's a noisy city for sure). The thing that attracts my about staying near the station is that we're arriving to the city and leaving it by train (arrival at 6pm on Saturday, departure at 8:20 am on Thursday). We'll also do a day trip to Toledo.

What's your opinion about this neighborhood? Any recommendations?
