Eurostars Madrid Tower

Madrid, Spain

The Eurostars Madrid Tower is located in the Cuatro Torres Business Area. This is one of the new and emerging business areas in the capital located north of Paseo de la Castellana and conveniently connected to the main points of interest in Madrid. The hotel is easily accessible by car due to its proximity to the main entrances into the city, as well as by public transport. Just a few metres away is the Begoña stop on line 10 of the underground and Chamartín, the local railway station. Several bus lines also stop near the hotel. The airport, the centre of Madrid, the business district and some of the most important arteries crossing the city, such as the M-30, the M-40 and the A-1, are also easy to reach.
