Airport to Plaza Mayor?

Hi everyone..my husband and I are on our first trip to Spain and arrive in Madrid in a few days. our hotel is located near Plaza Mayor. What is the best way to get to our hotel? is this doable via public transport? A how much would a taxi from the Airport cost us?

A taxi from the airport would be 30 Euros - flat rate, regardless of traffic.

I always take a taxi from the airport since it is not expensive and it is pretty easy.

Public transport is ok too, but you'll probably have to walk a few blocks at least with your luggage - how easy or difficult depends on how far you have to walk and how light you pack :-) Sol is probably the closest stop, but check maps.google.com or similar to verify this based on your hotel address. The Metro and Cercanias stops will be shown and if you move your cursor over the stops, it will show you which lines serve that stop.

I would take taxi, since you will have luggage. If you take the metro with luggage, you will be a target for pickpockets.

Thank you, everyone. I think we'll take a taxi.
