This is a fantastic modern hotel in the heart of Madrid. It's very easy to get to from the airport. Once you exit the terminal look for the Aeropuerto Express Bus making its rounds. There's a tall skinny plastic pillar smack dab where it stops and that also has the bus timetable written on it. There are only three stops. To get to the hotel stay on until the last stop, Atocha Station. Look for the roundabout and a McDonalds across the way. The hotel is just down the street from the golden arches and past some sort of all ages night club. I google street viewed the hotel earlier and was able to recognize it right away.
We loved the location for its easy access to old Madrid. You're across the street from the Reina Sofia and a short walk from the Prado. During our stay we walked to the Prado and bought passes for a Madrid City Tours hop-on and off bus and were able to cover the majority of sights quickly and easily. Never had to use the subway. We also were able to walk all the way to the Royal Palace and back easily. The proximity of the hotel to the main sights made it easy to duck back into our room for a siesta or bathroom break in the middle of the day.
The hotel room was fantastic. We had a nice view of the courtyard so never really heard any traffic or city noise. It was clean and spacious. No carpet which is a big plus in my book... sorry carpet lovers. We absolutely looked forward to coming back to our room at the end of each long day of exploring. It was also in proximity to plenty of restaurants and shops so there was always something nearby. My only gripe is that wi-fi is not free. If you're lucky you can go to the McDonalds near the hotel which has "wi-fi gratis." I was able to connect a few times but the signal was pretty weak. I managed to send out a few iMessages in the brief time I had access but don't expect to be able to FaceTime or do an heavy browsing.
If you want to get back to the airport the same bus that got you here can take you back... it only picks up at Atocha Station. Since we left at 4AM we opted for private transport to the Airport for 38 euros. According to a random taxi driver we spoke to it costs around 30 euros, "mas o menos," from the hotel. We left on a Sunday morning and there were still a good number of people out and about, either going home from a club or staggering about the street. Taxis were everywhere and abundant. Not sure how an early morning weekday would look though. Pretty sure we would have found a taxi but we just opted for the private driver.
Overall, this hotel is the ideal place to stay for anyone wanting to visit Madrid. I'll definitely be back here if I'm ever in the neighborhood.
