As I've already tried some hotels close to the airport, I decided to save a little bit and went for the budget option - turns out in the end it was more pricey than nearby Ibis aeropuerto Barajas!!!
First thing was as I made the reservation, I called to ensure it's walking distance from the airport, no english spoken, but clumsily I was assured I can walk to the hotel... yes I can, but along a huge road with no sidewalk! I ended up taking metro and one stop is 4.50 eur... going twice, the price equalized with nice and clean Ibis with great service and airport shuttle!
The place itself is not very pleasant. The room had weird smoke and moldy smell and looked like it was taken care of a decade ago. I felt unwelcome and regretted my stay immediately. The rooms are small and darkish, the AC was super loud.
The entrance to the hotel also look very strange. They arrange perhaps the most expensive transfers to the airport around - 9 euro (other hostels charge around 6 or have free service).
If you can, book stg else, the price will equalize and you wouldn't get this crappy experience.
