“Good airport hotel”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Check-in and check-out were fast. Nice restaurant card. Rather nice but small gym downstairs however the music is the one of the lounge upstairs and you cannot change it. Would reserve there again without doubt.

Returning from a cruise ending in Tenerife, My wife and I were unable to book a return flight without an overnight in Tenerife or Madrid. I chose Madrid and booked this hotel because it was near the Madrid airport. Our flight arrived at 9:40 pm. As soon as we got our baggage, I called the 24/7 number given us at the time of the booking and got instructions where to wait for the free shuttle bus that they would send for a pickup. It arrived in 15 minutes. The hotel room was large and clean. The hotel was a good choice for a late arrival because its restaurant was open until midnight. In the morning, we again used the shuttle to go to the airport. Another positive for the hotel was the free internet.

I had an overnight stay here when travelling from Santiago de Compostela back to Edinburgh. The free shuttle from the airport works extremely well. I just called the hotel and the mini-bus arrived promptly. The transfer itself took around 10 minutes. The shuttle operates 24 hours so I had no problem making it back to the airport for my flight at 0600.

My room was lovely and extremely well appointed. A massive king size bed, writing desk and bathroom with separate bath and shower.

I took a walk out into Barajas to get something to eat, but didn't feel overly comfortable - it's not the nicest area. So I went back to the hotel to find that the restaurant was closed. Thankfully the bar served food and I enjoyed a very nice meal in the courtyard. The chap serving in the bar was friendly enough.

I didn't use the pool (and wasn't sure how to get out to it) but it looked fine with some sun loungers.

Reception staff served their purpose. They weren't rude nor were they overly friendly.

For what I paid for the hotel, I cannot complain at all. A comfortable room, a good nights sleep and nice food. What more do you need!

Great location for a short stay in Madrid.
Easy cab ride into the city. Convenience to the airport with shuttle available to take you directly to the gate was exactly what we were looking for. Lovely hotel with attentive hotel staff.

We were fortunate to have stayed here due to a missed connection by our airline. We had a very comfortable room, with expected amenities.. free Internet, hairdryer, good linens, numerous English TV channels. Even the neighborhood was likeable. We also had a great dinner with a bottle of wine on the table. The dinner buffet offered a diverse selection and then a wonderful array of desserts. The breakfast buffet was equally as good. So our missed connection was nice surprise. I would love to return to spend more time (probably in a different location) and actually see the city.

For our purposes (getting to the airport at 4:30 am) this hotel was great. The rooms were comfortable, large and the beds really good. We had two connecting rooms, but could have fitted our group (2 adults 3 kids) in one if we had to. We had a car with us (parking is extra but not too expensive, I think it was about 10 euro overnight), but noticed the airport bus was there doing the rounds at 4 am. If you were to stay longer the subway is less than a block away and it is very easy to get to central Madrid. We used the subway a lot in Madrid and it is very easy to navigate. The area around the hotel is like a typical suburban place. Lots of places to eat etc - I'd particularly recommend a place called Campanillas a block or so down the road - run by what must be the friendliest man on the planet. We didn't use any of the hotel amenities so can't comment there- I quite liked the spaces though, it's obviously been renovated but has a bit of a retro vibe..

I already stayed in this hotel several times,usually one night.
Near of the Barajas airport is a good choice for a fast stop ,near the hotel there is a subway station if you wish to go to the city.
About the hotel,the rooms are ok and clean,classic style,the AC could work much better,same nights in the summer was really complicated to sleep.
The staff Professional.
The breakfast really food!!!
Just a remark,last years,comparing Melia Group with Accor(Novotel and Mercure),Melia seems stop in the time,they do not inovate!
