Car Rental Pick up Madrid

We are planning to rent a car on our way out of Madrid for travel South to Andalucia area. We are staying at Hotel Liabeny in Costa del Sol and there is a pick up site for Avis near by on Grand Via.

Would it be better traffic wise on a Monday morning to pick up the car from the train station for a good exit out of the city? We will be returning the car to the same location a week later and also staying at Hotel Liabeny and just trying to make our exit from Madrid as painless as possible. Thanks for your advice as always.

We alwas pick our car up at the airport then get about 30 miles outside of Madrid in a small town and spend the night there, we HATE those big cities with a car, good luck and have fun. Hubie

We always picked our car up at Atocha. It was just as easy for us and it was much closer (and saved us the cost and commute to the airport). So there you have two conflicting opinions! LOL!
