Hotel near Atocha train station in MadridCould anyone recommend a hotel close to the Atocha train station?
I am going to be arriving at the train station at about 10 p.m., and I am nervous about being a woman alone in a city I don't know, so I want to get to a hotel easily and safely. I'm only there overnight - I have an early afternoon flight home the next day. I'm doing part of the Camino de Santiago with my Dad, and this is how I am getting home.

Welcome to TT!
I'm doing part of the Camino de Santiago with my Dad, and this is how I am getting home.
Are you sure you are going to arrive to Atocha train station? Most trains from the north of the country only go to Chamartín train station.
Anyway, you could take a look at the web of booking to look for some accomodation that meet your requirements.

5Thanks for responding and for the advice. I double checked the train and it does say Atocha on the Renfe site. And bb you are right that I should be speaking in Euros.
The Husa Paseo del Arte looked nice; it's 120 Euros per night. Their website says 300 meters from the train station. My stereotype is that in Spain people stay up later than in the US, and I think Atocha is an area with things going on at night, so I imagine there will be people around, so it should be fine, in terms of personal safety, walking there alone even at 10:00 p.m., right? Or is there a better option? Other than charging for internet, people on tripadvisor seemed pleased with that hotel?
Thanks again for the advice.

8The Mora gets reasonable ratings on the bookings.com website. It is quite a bit cheaper than the two we have stayed at in the area. We stayed in the NH Sur which is THE closest hotel to the station but thought it is over priced for what you get. We also stayed at the AC Atocha and if you book on the Marriott website are over 62, you can get a Senior rate that is a great value. (And we now get Marriott points)
There are a lot of choices for eating and the streets are packed at night. We really like the Rincon Gallego on the street to the side of the station. We've also had Bocadillos de Calamar at the tables right across the street.

9the legendary calamari bocadillos can be found at EL BRILLANTE nearby but eat at the bar --- it's kind of overpriced. Also, you're around the corner from the Reina Sophia museum. have fun and congrats on the Camino.

11If you fancy something unique and stylish, Hotel Petit Palace Lealtad Plaza could be a nice option.
It probably costs a bit more than 100 euros, but still pretty reasonable for what you get. It's a short walk from the station.
