SLEEP’N lies on the verge of Madrid’s well-known Triangle of Art, a stone’s throw away from the city’s three main museums and just a street away from Atocha train station and Metro line 1. You will find yourself close to such emblematic sites as Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, as well as Gran Vía high street with all its shops. Just a short distance from SLEEP’N are the Botanical Gardens and the Retiro Park, two of the city’s breathing lungs. And as if that weren’t enough, it is nestled between the vibrant neighbourhoods of Lavapies (the heart of underground culture) and Barrio de las Letras (perfect for tapas, quaint bookshops and cafés). Imagine being struck by creative inspiration here!
Atocha is truly the nerve centre of Madrid’s cultural life. Here at Plaza Carlos V is where the Prado-Recoletos-Castellana avenue stems from as the backbone of the city. The area is full of gastronomic options for you to sample some wholesome Spanish dishes at the various restaurants and bars that surround SLEEP’N Atocha. If you are more of a shopper, you will find plenty of shops around and inside the station. Why not step inside to do some SHOPP’N and visit its famous tropical gardens? After dark, you might want to discover Kapital, one of Madrid’s most popular nightclubs, or explore some of the less conventional venues in Lavapies.
SLEEP´N Atocha is surrounded by art. Right by our hotel is one of Madrid’s major artistic hubs known as the Triangle of Art. The tips of the triangle are the Reina Sofía Museum, an international benchmark for contemporary art, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, home to some of the world’s most impressive private collections, and, of course, the Prado Museum, the crown jewel of Spanish artistic heritage. What’s more, the area of Barrio de las Letras contains some of the most prestigious galleries in the city. The wonders you see here will stay with you forever.
This historic district is renowned for having housed some of the most important literary figures in Spanish history, from the Golden Age to the present day. Its pedestrianised streets are full of quotes from all of their works. The area also contains the Museum-Houses of famous writers such as Lope de Vega, Cervantes, Góngora and Quevedo. With such a shocking amount of literary talent squeezed into just a few streets and squares, it is difficult not to feel inspired. At night, when the bookstores and galleries close their doors, the live music joints and nightclubs come to life. This spot is a favourite among travellers who come here to lose themselves in its narrow streets and savour the culture of Madrid.
Located just a 15 min. walk away, Puerta del Sol is one of the symbols of Madrid. The New Year’s Eve countdown, the Kilometre Zero plaque marking the geographical centre of Spain, the statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree, the shops, theatres, museums, nightclubs and a substantial calamari sandwich. Just a few yards away are the stunning Plaza Mayor, the Gran Via high street, Plaza España and the Cibeles roundabout. The monumental heart of Madrid with its most noteworthy architecture, stores and leisure options is right here for you to explore. What more could you want?
WE DREAM OF A NEW WAY OF MAKING THE CITY
Traveling is another way of dreaming the world. The one we want is necessarily one based on sustainability, excellence and attention to detail. In addition to our state-of-the-art technological systems – soundproof walls, high-pressure rainshowers or integrated bluetooth speakers – we have also implemented all our environmental measures: 100% renewable energy, intelligent air conditioning, LED lighting, recycled glass, natural pigments, electric ovens, rock wool insulation… all of which make us a CO2-neutral building. An urban oasis in the heart of Madrid. We want to continue building, together with our customers, suppliers and collaborators, the 21st century habitat.
WE DREAM OF A WORLD WITHOUT LABELS
Many of our guests are positively surprised when they discover that we are a hostel and not a hotel. At least, according to our business license. The truth is that we pay little attention to labels. We believe that an accommodation is defined by more than just its category or the number of stars it has. SLEEP’N Atocha seeks to be much more than an accommodation. We are a new concept of sustainable and multipurpose accommodation in permanent evolution. We adapt to the reality of the times, to the new social and working habits and to the revolution of the spaces, which are becoming more and more transversal, flexible and heterogeneous. Just like the people who live in them.
WE DREAM OF BEING THE BEST ACCOMMODATION FOR THE WORLD
We are a human and committed team that works to promote a new, more sustainable and more conscious tourism. We can proudly say that we are the first B Corp accommodation in Spain and the second in Europe, a seal that certifies our compliance with the highest standards in terms of social and environmental performance, transparency and corporate responsibility. Our ambition is to contribute to improving our environment, putting the people and the planet at the centre. But we cannot do it alone. We need to work hand in hand with our suppliers, collaborators and customers. That is why we think it is important to remember that each guest crossing the threshold of SLEEP’N Atocha is changing the world with us.
